Okay, I'm looking for someone to give me a glimmer of hope that the new release is in fact nearing... A few months back I posted asking advice about switching from a 1st gen to a 2nd gen. You guys advised me not to make to switch since the 3rd gen would likely be hitting stores in September. After some heavy thinking, I took a slight change in direction - sold my 1st gen and bought a 3GS. I've now sold the 3GS since I was hardly using it as a phone (boy what a profit!). I intend to buy the 3rd gen the second it comes out, but as with all things Apple, news about the release is far and few. I'm iPod-less and I can't stand it! Any tipsters out there have any release-related news to share? Cheer me up! Thanks.
