My answer to this week's pool would actually more be something like:
"Once I found an good enough excuse for myself that would justify to buy one."

It's obvious that I would want one and I could easily come up with some way to use it. It's rather a matter of justifying it so I can go after my bank account without any bad thoughts in the back of my head ;-)

I also wanted to let all developers listening to the show that if you didn't update Xcode to 3.2 (already 3.2.1) and are on Snowy you should do so. Mainly bug fixes and some minor new features.
