i've been considering buying a 10GB iPod for my girlfriend this x-mas. problem is, $300 is a lot of money for a poor workin' stiff like myself. i could probably swing $200. hell, even $250 would be in the realm of "sure, it's a lot of money, but she's worth it." but that last $50 (to make it $300) might as well be 50 miles away. that's like a whole other present! so, rumor-mongers, what do you think the chances are of a price drop between now (12/01/03) and X-Mas 2k3? i myself am inclined to say UNLIKELY, but i think i'll just wait and see what happens in the next week. if there's nothing by then, i don't think we'll see any changes, and it might be a slightly less merry christmas.
