I love my iPod. Even moreso now that I'm running OS X at home. I could not function without it. Well, I wouldn't be able to do cardio without it. No other player comes close to its style and functionality. Not even the new breed announced at CES. Except maybe one the RCA Lyra. While I don't really need video I do need to upgrade my 5GB iPod, and for $399 I'm starting to wait on this. I'd rather be waiting on a next gen iPod, even without video, but Apple is too secretive. Apple better start dropping some hints or something.
