    I was in the Apple store Regent street, 5 seconds away from buying a 4gig Red baby & I think it’s the same in every apple store. You have some sales assistant with a portable mini sales till thingy selling the ipods @ the show desk. I was really going to buy the thing… had my card ready and everything.
    Whats funny is that I asked the sales rep if I bough the ipod “NOW!” would I just feel gutted come MacWorld just a few weeks away? (more like a question to myself)
    He just smiled and couldn’t really answer the question cos he know what I meant.
    Why get a ipod now, when in a 2weeks you’re going to want something else!?

    The thing is, when i said sorry i'm going to wait he just smiled and winked at me! Theres something coming and its going to be Good..

    Save your pennys people.

    I am pretty sure he is speculating like the rest of us. Apple is pretty secretive about new products.

    whoa, that sounds like the nicest/coolest Apple Store rep ever! Usually all we ever hear is how rude/ignorant they are.

    i dont know why people say they are rude and or ignorant.
    i bought my macbook pro yesterday and they were all super awesome.
    probably the best sales reps i've delt with lately. all other places are run down with bad service.

    Apple Store employees don't know SQUAT when it comes to unreleased product. They read rumor sites to get their "info" like everyone else...

    To the OP, he was just trying to act lik he knew something, you shoulda bought your iPod and enjoyed it.

    I somehow doubt that Apple will release upgraded iPods just a couple of weeks after millions of people have received one as a gift. The stores would be flooded with people trying to exchange them. Don't expect new iPods until the spring.

    As for iPod phones? Well, that's another story...

    need help with frozen ipod mini

    my ipod mini has been working fine until today. i turned it on and it says SDRAM OK in the middle and Play to Quit at the bottom. pushing Play does nothing. it won't turnoff. no combination of button pushing does any good. i think i've tried everything i can think of. i've connected to my Mac and that doesn't work. it doesn't even register that it's connected.

    help

    Can't say I care too much for the sales reps, they are very smug, and too many of them don't know much about the products they sell.

    Now I can say that Genius bar folks are top notch.

    If you make a new thread in the iPod/iTunes section, you are sure to get more people to help you.

    Yeah, some stores have that problem.

    The Norfolk, VA store regularly gets customers that comment that they'd prefer to drive longer to visit that Apple store than the closer store in Richmond, VA for that very reason (smug sales reps).

    why are you posting a new issue in a pre-existing thread?

    in response to the original issue: that guy doesn't know anything more than we do, and possibly even less. apparently his ignorance cost him a sale. most of the people i know who work at Apple don't pretend they know something when they really don't but they are very helpful when it comes to anything else. then there are those that just want to sell you something.

    1) If every, or even some Apple employees knew the secrets they wouldn't stay secrets long.

    2) Every week I hear a new iPod is coming in two months... two months never comes. Eventually someone will buy an iPod the day before a new one is announced, and it will lose value quicker than an American flag in Baghdad. So what? You can't control that, just get the iPod, it looks beautiful in red, and its a nice limited edition. I don't particularly support the cause myself that "red" does, but it is a good cause nonetheless. What more could you want?
