16GB just ain't enough

When I got my 16GB iPod Touch, I knew I'd run out of room. I just didn't realize how soon I'd do it. Moving from my previous 30GB iPod Video, I had trimmed my music collection - purging all files of questionable origin - and was able to fit everything quite comfortably within 16GB.

But now, with a bunch of TED Talks, some movies, presentations, a schwack of podcasts (I think that's metric. or is it imperial?), and a bunch of photos, I'm starting to hit the ceiling. 16GB just isn't enough.

It should have been a sign, when the week after I bought my 16GB iPod Touch, Apple released a new model sporting 32GB of storage. Sigh. I'll go through my music collection and trim some of the old crap I never listen to (or just set it not to copy to the iPod). Hopefully that'll give me some more breathing room. I have a feeling I'll be needing some free space once the apps built on the SDK are released, all wanting some room to store stuff...

Oh, and don't get me wrong - I love my iPod Touch in a way that is entirely unhealthy. Perhaps unholy. It's like my own minitiature Clarke Monolith, but with wifi and web browsing built in. Love. It. I'd just like some more room for my stuff on it, that's all...
