I think that Apple missed a big point of people buying high end flash memory mp3 devices --- they don't skip. Until I am confident that I could take an iPod jogging with me and bang it around... I can't see buying one. Even the mini iPod appears to be a device that could not handle rigorous activity (sweat, repeated jarring, etc.) I'm looking for a model a la a "Sony Sports" type style of Walkman. I don't see this a market that Apple appears interested in.
