My 32nd birthday is just around the corner. To be exact, it is this Friday. At work, colleagues have been asking what I’m planning to do this weekend? I said, nothing unusual, perhaps spending time with family and do some online learning I guessed. They were smiling and the way they smiled were really weird. After a moment, I realized that they noticed that my birthday is just 2/3 days ahead. To be honest, I forgot about my own birthday. Just now, my wife asked me, what I want for my birthday…? I answered spontaneously, I don’t know yet.

But then, while reading yesterday’s New Straight Times (NST), I read a page of “Music on the Go” under the section “Tech & U“. The article was written by Rozana Sani and from her article I had better comprehension on what the hell is MP4 player, TV MP4, IPOD Nano and so on…. Frankly, I’m not really alert on this piece of gadget. However, suddenly, I thought, should this be a gift for me for my coming birthday.


I think it depends. If the video or movie player is very clear and accept the format ASF, AVI, 3GP, MP4, FLV, MPEG and others not frequently used such as MPE, MPG, DAT, RM, RMVB, then I think it can come in handy. Having those applications can allow me to clearly watch my internet marketing video collection and can enable me to view it with better display anytime anywhere? So, far, I’ve been using my Sony Erickson K810 to listen to audio internet marketing records. The videos in the other hand is not very clear. That’s why, having a clear video MP4 can help me learn anytime and anywhere I want on the move.

To add up the superiority of this MP4, it will be very cool if I can see TV inside it (portable television with an antenna and built in TV tuner). What should I consider…? I need some input from you guys… Should I ask for IPod Nano, or Ainol V200, or other MP4 players? Please advice…

Or if there is other interesting and useful present… please give me some idea… πŸ™‚

Share and Enjoy

    Most importantly.. what’s her budget like? If it is up to 3K, i’d recommend her to buy you an SLR camera, so that you can shoot and later post better photos on your blog. Just my opinion.

    Mak dato’…… I won’t allow her to thrashed 3k into a DSLR… I like the camera…but I have other high priority…to learn more and more…
    Further more the 3k should be kept and accumulated for our dream vacation…
    I’ll probably let her or approve her to spend something under RM500… that’s all… πŸ™‚

    anyway, thanks for the opinion… aku tau la ko ada SLR…. he he

    I really like that idea of yours…if i cannot decide what to get

    @ Umar,

    Nikon D40 DSLR tu maybe consider later la… not now…

    @ Mael,

    hmmm..,. I can consider that as well… but let me think first what I really really want. Thanks for giving the idea… πŸ™‚

    @ Titan,

    I’m afraid you’ve mistaken the entire idea…. My wife is going to buy me something, not I buy for him….

    @ Alie,

    Memang kerekkk bebbb…. kalau pakai iPod… I like your point of: “Don’t be a slave of technology….” I’ll remember that…. Thanks
