    anybody else waiting for this day to come?

    not everyone loves online streaming! there are people who have a huge music collection, want to take it on the go and listen to it offline! built-in fm radio would be a nice addition, too!

    Sadly this day won't come for two reasons:
    Apple is pushing iCloud
    Apple is focused on iPhone and iPad now because they are the money makers

    I agree, streaming sucks especially in the US where the providers give you a paltry 2gb monthly limit for 30 like it's a deal. I am with T-Mobile and have unlimited data yet still use my iPod classic on a daily basis for music; I don't have to worry about reception or connectivity issues it just plays.

    Two more reasons: There are no 500 GB drives, and the number of people who want more than the available 160 GB is quite small.

    I just did a search on Amazon UK, and there are no mp3 players with more than 120 GB other than Apple's iPod classic, and a single used Archos 7" media player with 320 GB. So this doesn't really have anything to do with Apple; there seems to be no market for these devices.
