This quote sort of irks me,

I really like my iPod Mini, but drawbacks on the iPod Mini for me are first, memory limitations, and second, battery life

Well the battery life should go to 12 hours when the mini hits 2G. But, what irks me is that complaint about the memory thing. What do you suspect out of a small device that has a 4 GB capacity. She should of saw the mini would hold close to 1000 songs. If she has a problem with that she should of went for the regular iPod. Plus, HD's can get so small. Especially the mini's. I believe 6 GB is the biggest mini HD out there which we should see at 2G.

Wait, you mean that Apple doesn't use the patented 'screw-you' battery designed to fail. You mean this is an engineering problem?
Next you'll be telling me that the best micro-drives only go to 4gb.

That's an interesting point - you'd think that if Apple could make the battery better they could, but maybe that's not the case. They want to sell these freaking protection plans which are like 60 bucks without the ed discount and that's a good chunk. They must design the battery to fail. I'm just getting to my third iPod and I WILL buy that plan.
