    The dorks didn't update color ipods

    Thanks Apple for making me feel like my investment in my 30GB iPod Photo is now crap.

    Video iPods likely use different processors from the regular iPods, so I doubt that video support could be added via a software update. In addition, the screen is a different size.

    screen is a different size, but thats okay for me. That is the incentive to go out and buy the upgraded iPods.

    However, the color iPods DEFINITELY have the hardware umph to handle video (at least MPEG-4). See what the iPod Linux guys have done at www.ipodlinux.org
