anyone notice here how cnet says this is cheaper than the video ipod? is she comparing this 30gb creative vision M to the ipod 60gb? I'd give up FM radio and voice recorder and the bulky size (cause their 30gb is larger than the 60gb ipod video) for and ipod 60gb...what's up with this....does everyone hate on apple?

No one likes Apple because they say they're overpriced (Mac-Mini $500 - how cheaper can you get?), doesn't run very many applications (freeware, Adobe stuff, Macromedia, + you get iLife 05 (soon to be 06) free with your system), the OS is difficult to understand (drag and drop - that's it, drag and drop people), internet is limited on it (WTF no its not, just talk to your ISP and they'll give you everything you need), it doesn't support my keyboard or mouse (get USB, it supports USB and with upper class Macs you get your own Keyboard and Mouse), I need help with it though (sign up to MacRumors), how do I make shortcuts to my favorite applications (here we go, drag, drop, dock, Triple D's my friend, drag and drop to dock). - Sorry had to rant on that hehe. It's that easy duh, cause the learning curve for Microsoft people is is a slow one or they're just lazy.

I know, who the heck wants something big and bulky. I'll post a picture of the iPod Mini, Nano, Shuffle boxers. They're awesome

Serves em right, you can dual boot, don't worry about OS X, you'll like it better anyways.

I actually emailed them when I heard - they fixed the video pronto (which says a lot about CNET, I actually really appreciated that) and they emailed me back saying 'thanks'.
