The Zen of 20/15 Vision

I took the leap and finally made the purchase of the Creative’s Zen Micro. I really haven’t had much time to play with it. I recently under went the LASIK vision correction procedure this past Thursday so I really have limited myself to any screen time.

First, the LASIK procedure is incredible! I setup a free consolation this past Tuesday just to see if I was eligible and to also find out more about what can be done for my terrible vision. Well, next thing you know I was fully informed and they offered me an appointment for Thursday to have the procedure done. I was blown away at the rapid pace thing were progressing but I was so sick of glasses and contact lens vision correction. So I setup the Thursday appointment and next thing you know I was on the table looking up at the laser. The procedure took a max of 4 minutes and immediately after sitting up I noticed a whole new world. Although my eyes were very sore I instantly could see things clearly around the room. SHOCKING!! Best thing I have ever done for myself. Well, 3rd maybe considering I am married with two beautiful kids - That I now can see with 20/15. The only downside to the whole experience is having to think about all those years I prolonged the agony of putting up with prescription lenses.

Secondly, the Zen has been pretty pain free thus far. I think the main use I will get out of it is for listening to some podcasts. The fun part for me is figuring out just how best to utilize it. The big benefit of the Zen is that it is fully compatible with Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscription. I have tested this out and actually had instant success playing a subscription piece of music on it. The downside so far is that the Yahoo! Music jukebox doesn’t do anything fantasy like auto syncing with your device. Everything has to be done manually after downloading content to your PC. My goal is to be able to grab my Zen in the morning on the way out the door, plug it into my car and get the morning’s Woot and tech news while driving to work.
