haha, the Video iPod wasnt even out then, so that shows what Apple will do to fill a market want. Just the way they brought out black Video iPod's

Apple was pretty smart to bring out a music iPod--that also could play video as a harmless extra. A risk free way to generate interest, whereas a video-centric iPod separate from the audio players would have been hailed as a flop. Now that the first step has been taken, would a true video-centric iPod make sense? Maybe so.

Oh, no doubt it was in the works though, at least on paper. Steve makes it look like he's not even interested, but is secretly working on it to catch the competition off guard. He's pretty shrewd that way.

Yeah, just like we'll never see a true media center Mac. I'd give it until January... :D
