Hey guys, I've lost (probably stolen out of my bag) my iPod mini, which I absolutely adored. I'm now trying to figure out a few things: 1) When to purchase a new one (wait around a few months, see if something new comes out) 2) What to purchase Here is the thing. I commute a lot, via car, bus and train. I love listening to music, podcasts and audiobooks while traveling. I also like to go running with my iPod, and I used to strap the mini to my arm without even noticing its presence. I think that I might use the video features of the newer iPods (especially if you can rip DVDs), but I worry that it will be a pain since it is so much bigger than my mini. That said I worry that the nano is so small I'll break it when it gets lost in my gigantic backpack (between my computer, binders, textbooks and other various sundries it is pretty heavy and totally packed). What are your thoughts on this? I've heard that the new iPod is smaller than the 3G, but sufficiently smaller? Any thoughts on if the prices may change in the near future with new introductions? Thanks for any and all advice!
