So, I've held off for a solid year buying a new iPod, hanging on to my, I think, 2g 20gb iPod (the first 20 gb iPod), with its 3-4 hours of battery life (i'm actually pretty happy with that) and a screen that's now about 1/10th dead pixels, waiting for THIS iPod update, specifically for the T.O.T.L. iPod. And now, yes, it's a bit cheaper, the display is a bit nicer, the battery life is longer, but - from what we've all been talking about on here - I get the feeling that a HUGE iPod update is going to happen in the near future - widescreen, touch screen, some big new thing. The iPod of today will be in X months (as opposed to years) what the iBook is now (i.e. totally obsolete). I can just feel it in my bones -although, I'm pretty terrible when it comes to predicting these these things.= Opinions? __________ MacBook Pro 2.16ghz/1gb/100gb(7200RPM) Powerbook 1.67ghz/1gb/100gb Powermac G4 400mhz/128mb/20gb (1st gen) Powerbook 5300cs 100mhz/16mb/500mb Performa 6116 60mhz/40mb/700mb LC III 25mhz/8mb/160mb Apple //c 1mhz/128kb/32kb My lord, we've given them a lot of money.
