    I haven't seen any other mention of it (though I could just be missing it, sorry if this is a repost) but did anyone else see the new commercial for the nano? I saw it twice last night on ABC during the Patriots/Raiders game. Its the first iPod commercial (other than print ads) I've ever seen that actually SHOWED the iPod, and wasn't just the usual silhouettes for the iPod + iTunes commercials. Seeing it actual moving hands, for me, really just made it more obvious how freakin' small the thing actually is. My 1st gen mini's battery just all of a sudden lost all capability to hold more than 10 minutes of charge, so instead of getting the battery replaced I might just buy a nano.

    heres the link to the ad on the apple site

    i also saw it on abc, but it wasnt during the game, at some point before that my mom yelled at me to run to the living room to see the commercial. She is in love with the black nano and wants one for her birthday in Nov.

    It's cool- it's different. I just hope they don't ditch the old silhoutte campaign. That was just pure genius.

    Hopes: I hope that they come out w/ an opposite for the black, as well. Instead of a white hand on a black background, a black hand on a white background. Then, maybe, fuse the two and have alternating white/black sequences. Possibly ending w/ the two coming together on a splitscreen- one white, one black. That would be hot.

    I saw it last night and quite a few of my friends did to. They all want one now so I guess it did get the message across efectively. Just about everyone and the grandparents know what a iPod is now so they don't really have to advertise the music part.

    Go pats! As a side note, I love the new ad.

    It was on during the O.C. last night too, and from my experience was very successful advertising - all of my non-Mac savvy friends with iPods had said they immediately googled it after the show and spent a solid hour oggling at it. I think they made the right choice showing it with hands - the size of the thing became immediately clear, and the once-innovative silhouette ads wouldn't have caught anyone's attention these days.
