I just got my iPod Photo...and what can I say? It is the single most COOLEST and well designed iPod I have ever used, and I have used them all. What I think the problem is that people are freaking out that this is just for photos and not for videos or anything. I looked at it like it was more like "iPod Color" which is what you all should too. I mean, you could view pics on a regular 4th Gen but it would just be in Greyscale. The subtle color accents to everything sends chills through my spine. You tell me the last time you got excited to see a "Do Not Disconnect" sign? I thought so. It is just things like that. From the battery, to the games, to the calendar...You can read them beautifully now. Everyone was saying when a color iPod was rumored, "Color on iPod? There would be no battery life. You don't need to see all those things in color" but now, because of the excellent battery life Apple has squeezed into this, you might now only hear "You don't need to see all those things in color." Little things like album art during songs is just incredible. Apple has taken my iTunes expeierience and successfully put it into an iPod. This iPod box was heavy, and it should be...It has SO much crap in it! Apple could have skimped on us and not included little things like a dock and the A/V cables but guess what? They did! And of course, included two little cases for it which is nice. Photo slideshow on TV? Flawless and not to mention, effortless. So easy, so smooth, so right. I can't really say enough about this but I sold my current iPod and got this one and I am glad I did. I will never look back, only forward. I can't reccomend this product enough. I suggest all of you consider it highly if you are in the market for an iPod but EVEN if you aren't. At least go play with it at the Apple Store. Please check it out as it is such a work of art. Have a great day!
