Think Secret reports that a number of resellers have had their distribution contracts cancelled, and can no longer place new orders with Apple.
Ceci n'a rien d'une rumeur. Selon une source interne à la FNAC, l'iPod 10 Go est maintenant listé comme produit en fin de vie. On peut en déduire que sa fabrication va cesser. Maintenant, à vous d'en déduire quelque chose ou pas.
This is no rumor. According to one source from FNAC (?) the 10 gigabyte iPod is currently listed as an end of life product. We can deduce from that that it's production will stop. Now it's up to you to deduce if this means something or not.

I bought a new Ipod 10Gb from John Lewis recently. when i got it home i plugged it in and waited a reasonable time to charge it. As soon as i unplugged it it went completely dead. When i took it back to the shop they said there were lots of problems with the firmware and they had pulled them from there shelves and that apple were being dificult because they were about to release a new Ipod (?Titanium?) with in the next month has anyone else heard anything about this and if so when is it due for release.
Thanks in advance.

Actually, dropping the 10GB model makes some sense. Apple can maybe make a cheaper 5GB model (like the $999 iBook, which is white plastic instead of clear plastic painted white on the inside).
So, let's say this:
$199 5GB - cheaper plastic
$399 20GB - 18mm thick
$499 40GB - 21mm thick
The $199 model is to go for market share, the other two to drive profits.
