    If you head to the best buy homepage, they have droped the prices on their 4g ipods.


    249.00= 20 gig
    349.00= 60 gig

    Looks like they are gearing up for the video's which I was told will be hitting their shelves this week.

    this is very good, as the people who dont want video will be able to still get a fully capable ipod for a great price. good stuff!

    That's a good tip... also good for people who would rather have Firewire, or don't have USB 2.0.

    Wait, wait, wait.

    Are you sure that the new iPods don't even have support for Firewire? If so, what is your source?

    Well, I'll be damned. I just checked Apple's iPod page under tech specs, and there certainly isn't FireWire connectivity anymore.

    WHY? Not that it matters too much for me (I've got USB 2.0)...but why is Apple trying to kill it's own standard?

    The Apple Education store sells the 5G iPods for $269 and $369... I'd rather just pay $20 more and have the video capability and slimmer size...

    The Nano doesn't support Firewire. Read somewhere (Here probably) that most user iPod owners are PC owners. That's why Apple phased out the iPod Firewire support.
