    Seriously? I don't understand that. Our $ is in the toilet, even more so than the US $ for some reason, even tho that's where all the trouble is, and importing anything is a crap proposition. Since iPod isn't made in AU, I really don't get it.

    (BTW, I'm not asking for an explanation; I don't have enough patience or interest.)

    Maybe time to get an iPod nano to tide me over until the iPhone gets its first revision with an upgrade to 32GB and a non-cracking shell.

    "In Australia the new 8gb iPod model is now priced at $A199 (NZ$230)."

    But they're NZ$219 (AU$189) here :confused:

    Edit: Sorry, I'm wrong, the NZ price I was looking at excluded GST. The Australian price includes it.
