Am I the only person who would never consider buying the iPod for as long as it retains similar characteristics to current models? By that, I mean size, battery life, features, etc. I would never buy any player where I couldn't get over 8 hours of battery life. And most people don't even get 8 hours because like many people, they skip tracks once in a while and use the menu's, meaning they only get 6 hours of battery life. And try justifying such a purchase if you go on camping or hiking trips and the like. Poor battery life strikes again. Its also not a smart purchase for anybody who does any physical activity (jogging with an HDD player!!?), and yet people buy it anyway because its cool to have one. Its like they aim their products at lazy people who will never be away from home for over 6-8 hours. A combination of a lack of features that many people seem to demand (ie: anything that would integrate it with APExpress better) and poor battery life makes me wonder if the iPod is overrated and hyped up a bit too much. On the other hand, its the best looking player and is quite easy to use, but does anyone else think that this is not enough?
