more likely to update the iPod

Now this is just my opinion, but if anything Apple would be more likely to update or evolve the iPod than to bring out a seperate PDA, after all they did give the iPod such an ambiguous name (they could have called it something like imp3, though that name is lame its just an example) and iPod can already handle the Address Book and soon iCal right? and those types of programs are really the only thing PDA's are good for anyways.
The PDA market is overcrowded as it is, adding more functionality to the iPod just makes sense.

Actually, it'd be pretty funny if you did Cobra, or if somebody else did. I don't have Photoshop to make one myself, so. . . :p

I don't think that this will happen for 2 reasons.

1. The iPod has lousy input features.

2. Apple doesn't want to integrate too many things into one. They're the ones who said that they don't want your Mac to be your TV too.

You see, I do gene therapy on cats (I have a basement)...

I turned it on and it had all my contact and calendar info from 1998 on.

And on the front it said: Newton MessagePad 2000.
Hey, your cat came over the other day to borrow a cup of sugar, now I can't find my Newton. What gives? And what the hell is that smell soming from your basement?

Steve Jobs' hairdresser's sister...

All I can say is ask Steve Jobs' hairdresser's sister. Her boyfriend knows... and he's not saying.

for ARN

I know its been around for a while but with phone integration happening with PDAs it wouldnt make sense for apple to come out with just a PDA and some of the rumors state it will have a phone mode, and I thought I read somewhere that Jobs or someone stated the next evolution of PDAs will be into phones or something of the sort.
