Saturday Photo Hunt --- Tiny



TINY



I don't know what it is about Photo Hunt but my mind often seems to go blank when I look at the theme. So this photo is really stretching it. As an interesting photo it just doesn't cut the mustard but it does illustrate the theme. Sort of........ maybe...... My first tiny mp3 player next to my later acquired Ipod mini. I didn't really like the Creative Muovo, although it was highly rated, but it had these tiny buttons which were difficult to see and manipulate and the world's smallest display. Not at all suitable for an old lady. However I did not have a computer capable of running iTunes so couldn't buy an iPod. As soon as I got a new computer I ran out and bought this iPod mini and have never used the Creative since.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with for Tiny. I'll be a bit late returning visits, due to my visiting daughter and her family. But I will get around to it eventually.

HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU ALL

Yeah, I'd say that qualifies as tiny :) Enjoy your visit!

TNChick said...

that does qual for tiny - technology keeps getting smaller and smaller.

Eric T said...

Agree with tnchick.

Just like mobile phone, it is getting smaller and smaller, you can't even feel it in the pocket.

Sometimes it is so hard to press the right button, small is not all good.

nice!

I love mp3 players. An iPod is a good choice. I don't have one but I make use of my cellphone's mp3 player. If you check my play list, you will be amuzed that most of them are children's songs. My son loves listening to them while we are on the road. :) Happy weekend. Thanks for the visit.

Jane said...

I must get on the ipod bandwagon! Their list of devoted fans is anything but tiny! Did get to play with an iphone a bit at a party last week. Now that is amazing! Enjoy your granddaughter.

And just like the pagers they used to have,.. until they did away with them. It's too small for me to press the tiny buttons! Have a great week with all the company, and thanks for sharing.

Everythig is getting smaller, more compact but useful. Don't have an iPod nor an mp3 player but I listen to my song collections in my Palm PDA.

I think you very well met the word ! I am sure I will discover a lot of babies and animal babies !

tegdirb92 said...

wow, how times change so quickly!! Great take on this week theme.

PastorMac's Ann said...

I thought "tiny" was a tough theme too!
I like you choice. It's pretty amazing how tiny these MP3 players have gotten but are still able to hold SO many songs.

Kai said...

We just bought our daughter (12) an iPod Nano (pink, of course :-) for her birthday. That thing is tiny enough!

I'm convinced they make them so small so you end up losing them and have to buy another! HA!

I see you're a fellow BC'er? We're currently in the west Kootenays, but will be moving back to the Island soon :-)

I'd love to add you to my BC Blogroll, if that's alright? I won't unless you give me the go ahead.

Nice to 'meet' you - hope you have a lovely time with your granddaughter!

Amazing Gracie said...

That was a great choice for "tiny!" Planned obsolesence is getting worse all the time. By the time I finally figure out one they bring out a new model!
Have a wonderful visit with your family!

Great sharing. Technology really produces lots of tiny gadgets now. Wishing you a calm, happy and lovely weekend! http://crizlai.blogspot.com/2007/07/photo-hunters-tiny.html

Lynn said...

A tiny but amazing gadget. Good take:)

pat said...

Definitely tiny! I know it was a hard one for me this week as well.

Happy Weekend.

YTSL said...

Wow...you have two mp3 players. Meanwhile, I haven't made that particularly technological "leap" yet... ;b

Dragonheart said...

Definitely tiny. My mom LOVES her Creative MuVo. :) She says it is perfect for running. :) Tiny, so nice and light when she's running, and so easy to use. She never looks at the display, and she finds the volume up and down easy to press while she's running, so it's perfect for her. She doesn't like the iPods at all - too bulky for running, except for the Nano, which some of her friends have had a lot of problems with. But, everyone is different.

ipanema said...

it is tiny indeed. one thing i don't like with some modern tech gadget is getting smaller. happy weekend! :)

meeyauw said...

Don't all the other players look ugly next to our beautiful iPods? Great post!

AlvinC said...

I was thinking of posting a similar picture of my new iPod nano next to my old G3 iPod. I definitely think it fits the theme :)

Expat Traveler said...

soccer mom in denial said...

Yup. That is tiny!

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

I can understand your searching for Tiny!
I was not going to do PH today, had a little road trip to do, and had not found a tiny.. but when I got back 'Tiny' came to me.

Your's is great!
