I immediately thought of the patriarch of The Family Guy when I read the title.

Yea, very misleading. Can we change the title to: "Peter Griffin (not the Family Guy, but rather a real author who isn't a cartoon, so don't click if you think it's this is going to be funny and from Seth McFarlane): Small is beautiful for Apple"

"There's a plastic fitting so you can use the Nano with your existing iPod dock"

No, that's for future third-party accessories, which can now be standardized for all docking iPods regardless of dimensions. Good move--but not meaningful yet.

Current docks can take the nano with no adapter needed.

PS, I see his reason against recommending iPods of any kind is that Apple won't support Microsoft's efforts to push their WMA format. Bad Apple! Microsoft could really use a hand here! :rolleyes:

Ugh. Wasted click. Got my hopes up for the merging of my two favorite worlds- Apple and Family Guy.

Gah, I thought it was going to be something like an appearance in a new episode or something. :(

That guy's probably wondering where all the hits are coming from!
