Last week I switched cars one day and forgot my sunglasses in the other. It happened to be exceptionally sunny, and having to squint during the commute wasn’t very pleasurable. That prompted me to pick up a second pair of shades as a backup. I decided on the Oakley Holbrooks in the Ducati/Nicky Hayden scheme. I like the matte black frame, but it does pick up oils from your skin rather easily. Slightly larger than my Wayfarers but still fits nicely.
The second pick up is a 6th gen iPod Nano, which I actually got as a gift from work. My first inclination was just to sell it or gift it again, since I’m not much of a mobile-music-listener. But since the Nano is only around $150 new for the 16GB version, there was no point in selling. So, I decided to keep it and turn it into a watch instead. The watchband is a Black LunaTik, which works amazingly well. Overpriced for what it is, but the way the whole package comes together is clever and easy.
I’m not sure yet if I’ll actually wear the Nano as a watch everyday, I primarily want to use the Pedometer feature when running.
