i hate to say this, but i'm getting tired of waiting for the ipod update. the update cycle is more than twice as long according to the macrumors buyers guide. my main questions are why, and when, and what. there are reports that apple is working longer on the new ipods because they are trying to increase the display size or quality, and increase battery life at the same time, without thickening the dimensions of an already very compact mp3 player. is this plausible? will ipods be announced in the paris expo? or not? will the ipod's resolution be increased to 480 up from 320 x 240? it's kinda hard to read the subtitles of my favorite anime. can i at least watch lord of the rings:ROTK once and still have battery to listen to more music? will there be a touch-screen interface? will there be wireless ipods? (for what? this feature is pointless) lots of questions, lots of fustration for me, i just had to let it all out.
