    For those of us in the midwest, ShopKo is now selling the shuffle, mini, and 20gb iPod.

    Wow, I was going to post asking if this chain is in Michigan, since I'd never heard of it, and I guess they are...but, only in the Upper Peninsula. I've never heard of anything that was only in the UP before! :D

    That's because ShopKo is fairly prevalent in WI, and well the UP is kind of stuck somewhere in the middle. I went to college there, seems there were just as many from WI as there were from MI.

    So *apologizes for the OT-ness* you can drive across the mountains, right? Is it pretty travelable, or do you kind of stay right by the cost of Lake Michigan? I've been to the UP, but mostly the side closer to the LP -- I spent a week or two at MTU once. But the only time I went to Wisconsin, I went through Chicago. :D

    I know shopko is a bargain warehouse type deal. Are they dropping the price at all?

    You're confusing ShopKo with Costco. ShopKo is a K Mart/Target type store,

    yeesh!

    Now that the Ipod is becoming SOOOO mainstream, I hope it dosen't die off as a Fad Item like Hypercolor shirts, and snap bracelets!. I hope more advanced features start to appear in the higher end Ipod line and keep the idea fresh and innovative. I am ready to buy a new Ipod now, but I want color, and hopefully soon, Video !!
