    If they really want to make the iPod better and more competitive, Apple needs to upgrade so it can play QuickTime videos with a new color screen, bigger HD, and make it play games like you can on the new cell phones.

    I haven't seen any rumors like this here, but I suspect Apple is working on such a device. I think Creative has a device that play videos, MP3s.

    This has been discussed before.

    I believe that if something like that happens, Apple should split the iPod into two products. An MP3 player, the iPod of today; and a multimedia edition with color screen, etc.

    The first could develop into a MP3 player/phone/PDA combo, and the latter as a DV storage/digital (video?)camera/MP3/Framistan enabled multimedia doohickey.

    I am afraid trying to squeeze too much into one product might defeat the purpose of being intuitive, sleek and efficient.

    while it would be nice for alot of the features mentioned to be added, a bigger hard drive isn't really necessary. 20GB is more than plenty.

    also, as zarathustra said, more features would inevitably complicate the iPod, which has become known for its no nonsense design.
