Ipod but No Cell Phone? Worth It?

My husband and I do not have a cell phone, we don't have cable, and we don't have any gaming system. We have wireless internet and a desktop computer. We do not want cell phones or cable. We've considered a gaming system in a couple of years. I have been looking at getting an Ipod Touch 4G lately. My husband doesn't think I will use it enough to warrant the cost. Does anyone else out there have one that doesn't have any other gadgets? That feels it was worth it? How do you use it?

Cell Phone and Email for Daughter

I am looking to get a cell phone for my daughter - but one that is very limited. I do not want text, camera, music, or anything like that. I only want her to be able to receive and send calls to numbers that I program in the phone. Does anyone know of a phone that does this? I also want to set up an email address for her so that she can communicate with her grandmother. Again, I only want her to be able to receive emails from addresses that I specify. Any help with something like that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Mac or Pc???

My computer decided to die about a month ago so now we're looking into a new laptop for our home. (I'm using my husbands work computer at the moment) I've always had a PC but my husbands work recently switched him over to a Mac and he's very happy with it. Now, he thinks we should get a Mac for our home. I am very interested in photography and take lots of pictures and enjoy editing them and creating projects in Photoshop Elements. I also create a lot of documents using Word. Other than that I use the Internet. My question is... what...

Ipod Vs. Mp3

My almost 13 year-old (next Monday is the day!) is at the point where she gets one big present and some little fillers. For Christmas, one thing on her wish list is an ipod, but she tends to be influenced by what her friends have. How does an ipod compare to an mp3? I have a friend who highly recommends the latter but I know most people have the former. I'd appreciate any recommendations, pros and cons and other feedback. The more specific the better (if applicable). Thanks.

Myspace for Teens

My 13 year old daughter has been bugging the heck out of me to let her get a "Myspace". Her friends have them and she feels like it's a way to stay connected. She told me that I could have her password to get into the account and that it would be exclusive to her friends that I know only....I told her I would think about it. I have been totally against having a Myspace for years. I didn't see the point and surely didn't have the time...Well several of my friends from back home told me that our classmates have been reconnecting through...

Wii or Not to Wii?

My husband and I have been talking for almost a year now about getting Nintendo Wii for Christmas and we are very excited. We have 3 boys, ages 6, 5, and 2 and they will just love something like that! But now I keep hearing about other systems like the Playstation Move and Xbox 360...... i'm so confused. Is the Wii "old school" now? Does anyone own a PS3 Move or Xbox 360? I'm not a proponent of regular video games for the kids and I'm afraid if we have a ps3 in the house, my husband would go back to his college days of playing madden all...
