    You mean this is what you want Apple to do? The title of your thread is misleading.:rolleyes:

    Sabenth, I dunno if you're serious when you say that the thing's a GBA, but if you are...
    you're confusing it with the new GBA SP. No, this thing looks more hideous than the GBA SP, and it IS a portable photo "storage solution"...

    It does look ghastly, but then again, a lot of things looked ghastly before Apple made 'em (PC notebooks, mp3 jukeboxes, etc.) I'm just saying that such a drive, with a color screen and some neat doodads, is implementable.

    Wouldnt that make the iPod outrageously expensive seeing that it would have to have a faster processer and a colour screen?

    Edit : P.S. The GBA SP is damn ugly... (good idea though)

    You don't like the GBA SP? Off topic but I think it's great an it's what I have been waiting for in form factor.

    On topic I don't think the iPod would need new processors. It is a dual processor and both processors are over kill for a simple MP3 player. The color screen though would be an additional cost.
