it's so HUGE, though!

Look at it next to her hand! If, to use Apple's comparison point, Dentyne made gum that big, it would fill your entire mouth!

They are currently busy with the internal leaks, the external copyright deals will come as soon as the other thing is resolved.

According to the specs, it's about 4 mm longer and 2 mm thicker than the Shuffle, so they're more or less the same size.

Maybe Apple legal has trouble getting through to the taiwanese court? China and Taiwan has the most products that are ripped off from somewhere. They are notorious for copying, even in their entertainment industry

Even the packaging looks similar, in shape at least…
