tax refund splurging

well after finding out that i'm getting a nice chunk o' change back from my income taxes i decided to go out and buy for myself an iPod. although most of that refund is going straight into my mortgage :(

say what you will about apple, but this thing is sweet. 5GB worth of storage and firewire connection that downloads and charges at the same time.

i just put on 2.8GB worth of music and it took a grand total of about three minutes. out of the box, plug into my 'puter and away i went. no software to install, no drivers to haggle around with. nothing but simplicity.

anyone else planning on dumping some of their refunds to the retail market?

Well ...

I will probably be putting most of my refund up my nose. ;)

Seriously though ... it's easy to OWE money if you earned a significant amount of non-employment or self-employment income, since taxes are not automatically deducted at the source. Especially back in those days when people were actually *making* money in the stock market. Heheh.

well then, i hope you're not complaining. obviously you've made a good chunk if you owe that. just be glad they've dropped the capital gains level to 50%

My mom just told me last night that she wants to buy me one of the new Macs with the flat screen and the swivelling neck. I showed her the price and she was like, "wow, that's not expensive." Should I be spoiled and accept her offer? She did get a good refund, I think...

Mine's gotta be considerable considering I'm a full-time student working part-time. If it is, I'm putting it to my "apartment in New York" fund for next January.

dood! do it. have you tried one out? go to a mac store and give 'er a spin, you'll like it. the ones out now are 800MHz with DVD-RW/CD-RW drive ... and the screen is really nice to boot.
