    They don't have the ipod mini listed - so I guess it's going away.

    my guess is that they will continue to get minis. I think that deal is only good until the end of the month. I highly doubt you wouuld get a spankin' new nano.

    Dude that eurohawk thread is still pissing me off. I'm waiting on my apple settlement which is now going towards one of these. Gas prices are going down slowly which is good but its still killing me to fill the truck up. My daughter is in the "Willow do it stage" which means 5 times longer than the "do it for Willow stage". Work has me slammed right now. The weather is nice so riding isn't in an oven anymore. The panthers are going to be good this year.

    Hell who knows if I am or not?

    yeah yeah, im thinking that thing is a sort of transitional device along with all these evolutions of the ipod. I bet in the coming years apple really drops the bombshell with a device that has incredible battery life and truely is an "all in one device" Im guessing it will be around 100 gb's of memory


    either way i think i am going to pick up the new nano for my gf if i get my new job...she will be jacked that they dont come in the "pretty blue" that she was looking for...

    I wonder if it'll actually have a decent battery life this time, after Apple's two spectacular failures at including a good battery.

    So much for those "Other" choices, bummer I just got a 2nd Gen Mini a couple months ago and a shuffle a month ago (I got the shuffle through Best Buy's Warantee of a RIO and use 50% of the memory as a thumb drive)...

    Alright! An mp3 player so thin, its as ergonomic as a 5 cent no. 2 pencil and snaps in half just like one if you sit down with it in your backpocket (that must be why it has the neck system). Where do I sign up? Style over functionality!

    Wait here while I throw on 3" DH tires like everyone use to do cause it was cool :p

    Or maybe I'll just spend the same money as the 2GB on a well designed player that gets 6 more hours of playback and comes with 6GB of space - it does all that with the extra power draw that a HDD has even:dancing:

    everything but the 60hrs of batter life should be available pretty much right now

    if only they worked out on better ways to store energy

    Bro, you love to look down your nose at all these iPod owners... thinking they're all fashion-conscious lemmings. You've done it in every previous iPod thread I've seen as well.

    But you're as much a lemming in your own group of tech-weenie early-adopters. All this added functionality that you think is so valuable is useless or even counter-productive for the majority of the population. No one wants or needs all those features, few care about the sound quality, and most are confused by anything but the simplest GUIs. Simplicity and smart selection of only the essential features IS functionality. Small size IS functionality. And even, gasp, fashion, IS functionality. You're blind if you don't recognize that... since it's a factor for every electronic device in existence.

    Snaps in half? And you know this from, uh, a couple of online picture about a product that isn't even in consumer hands yet? How many broken Shuffles or similar have you heard about? It shouldn't be any less robust than all the other SS players.

    I know you love to hate Apple. Get over it. They own the market because they do it better than everyone else. When someone else starts doing it better (INCLUDING the fashion part) they'll soon win their fair share of the market.

    They own the market cause they have the best marketing just as the best bikes aren't the ones that sell the most. Or Bud beer isn't the best simply cause it sells well...

    There is such as thing as too small. Thats why ergonomic expensive pens or mechnical pencils are about twice as thick as no. 2 pencils.

    6 more hours of battery life and 4GB more storage space at the same price IS useful to the average user...

    I know about thin flash device breakage cause I've know/seen plenty of people who have snapped their flash drives before (which are about the same thickness and have less leverage as they are shorter than this device)

    Get over you lack of braincell when it comes to this topic...

    :stupid:

    not to mention that the sound quality is largely a function of headphones. i'll stick with my ipod photo + headroom total airhead amp + senn hd600s ;)

    anyway, on a non-audio snob (well, as much as an apple-audio-device user can be a snob) note, i am going to snap up that itunes phone as soon as it hits amazon.com, with their steep rebates and all...

    that's a function of the iTunes Music Store, not the iPod. use an iPod with mp3s you rip (or download, whatever) and there's no DRM, just a trivial invisible folder setup designed to keep people from blatantly copying music between computers with iPods.

    Once they come out with a 20gb version that is the same size I will be all over it. 1000 songs is not enough. :(

    Get over your complete lack of understanding when it comes to the common consumer.

    The common consumer will take a stylish form factor over 4gb of extra storage any day of the week.

    The common consumer thinks the pretty, crisp, color screen is a lot nicer than extended battery life.

    The common consumer picks up an iPod and can almost immediately figure out how to play songs. The Rio's interface is good but it's not as good.

    I don't like the iPods myself, battery life being the biggest problem for me. But Apple owns the market for a lot of reasons, their marketing team being only one of them. They make attractive, ergonomic, and simple products - and then market them well. Only the combination provides such an enormously popular product, not one of them alone.

    One of Apple's strong points has always been getting to the core of what the public really wants. Not figuring out how their feature set will stack up against someone else's, but how their feature set will be used by 90% of the population.

    agreed. i am the common consumer.

    i just got a NIB Shuffle for $19...i'm quite tempted to put it up on ebay, and drop the money on a 2g Nano.

    What a coincidence, I'm pretty sure I'm a common consumer too. Sweet!
