Okay, it's past time to update my iPod. I just need to convince myself, my wife and my wallet. My old iPod is okay, but the battery life of a couple hours requires me to be plugged in most of the time. This gets old, as well as the miniscule 10GB capacity. I'm planning on getting the 60GB (black) video from the apple site. (Any other sites that would be better/cheaper - educational discount from apple.) A question would be are there any rumors of new upgrades coming soon (greater capacity, new functions 'SwissArmyiPod'...)? Also I have some accessories for my current iPod and I'm wondering if I will have to get new ones for them to be compatible. Things like an in-line 'remote' where I can control the volume and move to the next song or previous, play/pause (connects between the iPod and earbuds). Also, I recently installed cables so I could directly hook my iPod up to my car stereo - have they changed the bottom connections enough to warrant worrying about getting that replaced/updated? Any other random tips or advice? Edit to add- Oh yeah, any recommendations for a case to protect it? I'm looking for something that will protect the screen and general protection for the rest of it.
