.... is really freakin big. It's quoted as being "about the size of a klondike bar"... which is big. And ugly. The 1.5 one... i forget the name, "Ch" something, looks kinda promising, but overpriced now that Apple finally lowered their prices.

I think people are starting to realize that the iPod sets the standard for MP3 players. I've seen the iPod in many commercials recently (Target, VW), and music videos. I think this will help the iPod sell even better.

I agree - the iPod is the new "bar" that all other MP3 players are measured against, and all pale in comparison to. I'm hoping for one to show up at my house in a few weeks :)

Maybe this will help to bring down the price of iPods?
