    I once saw a show on TV about an African tribe that would catch monkeys by creating a narrow channel in a rock with a fist size chamber at the end. They would put food in the chamber and the monkey would reach his hand in and grab the food but the monkey fist would not fit through the narrower chamber. The monkey would not release the food so it was stuck.

    We have a monkey who comes out of the jungle every time an Ipod thread is posted. Let's see if we can catch him.

    :dancing:

    Because you don't want to have to mortgage your house to get a PC
    Because you want a machine that can run almost any application out there.
    Because function is more important than fashion
    Because (before the apple crowd plays it's only card) there really is nothing, video or audio-wise, that an apple can do that a PC can't. (Not even Pixar uses apples)

    Yeah!

    :evil:

    You asked for opinions and then rejected them.

    Yeah I like the looks of the Nano.

    I read an article in the NYtimes that said the Ipod is by far the best digital music player and the best value for the money. They said that the competition was not even close.

    :stupid:

    It will be on my Xmas list. Not that I need a new iPod since my mini works just fine, but the sleek look, size, and 14 hour battery of the Nano has got me drooling.

    Hopefully wifey will read this...

    I'm going to get a Nano for each arm, and wear my shuffle around my neck, and maybe an Apple trucker hat to complete the look. That will be pretty cool.

    Slaves! All of you!

    Nothing roxors like my walkman. Stores songs in convenient 60, 90, or 120 minute packages. With an aftermarket cable, it can be attached to my bitchin TI 99/4A and used as storage for the cool games I write in Basic, or to save my progress in "Hunt the Wumpus." Plus, when I'm rollerskating on the boardwalk, the bettys go wild at the site of this state of the art piece of portable stereo.



    Bow down.

    You're a slave to marketing. You should have ignored the marketing hype and got an Ipod, the clear winner in terms of value and performance.

    Everybody's buying iPods because they are the best quality and produce a higher sound quality than anything else. It's a no brainer!

    i hate to flay a supine equine, but the sound quality of the Karma is better than the iPod, at least in the direct head-to-head comparison i did.

    iRiver, cheaper, same quality as an iPod, and no retarded "applecare" fee you have to pay incase the stupid thing dies.

    also Apple computers: the land of no upgrade path.
    once its old
    its in the trash

    Maybe if you had read between the lines you would have realized that we are just posting BS in this thread.

    holla the iriver is the shiz you can organize the music the way you want. none of the crappy select genre or artist and then listen to all the music alphabetically.

    I had an iRiver, but I loaded it up with songs, and it got really really hot, so I took it out of my pocket and put it on my kitchen table and the headphones melted. iRiver's suck!

    Don't fall for the iriver marketing hype. I heard they get hot and generate microwaves that will make you sterile if you have them in your pocket for too long.

    Sorry, got a G4 sitting behind me for vid editing. :nope:

    I'm just stating fact.

    PS: Microsoft is a majority shareholder in Apple.
    Just thought I'd remind you. :thumb:

    facts don't belong in this thread. but just for the record microsoft is NOT the majority shareholder in apple (not "a", can't have two majorities :nuts: ): they invested $150m iirc about 8? years ago, and have since divested.
