I hope so... If nothing else, price drops are in order...applemacdude said:september will change things
It's only "drag and drop" in terms of music, if even then.princealfie said:Ohh ohh, looks like Sandisk has its 8 gb mp3 player in the Sansa series... bigger capacity than the Nano (possibly better built)...
Also Sandisk players work with Macs. It's only drag and drop without iTunes.
And im sure they will, their is already rumor of them buying up a lot of 8GB and 12GB flash chips!princealfie said:But where is the 8 GB nano? You see, it's about the size, dudes. It really is. Apple needs to come up with something quick to solve this problem.
But you have to think of it this way you also have to convert video with the ipod video so no matter what with most players like these you have to convert it. With in a few months you shall see more mac support from them.Vidd said:It's only "drag and drop" in terms of music, if even then.
According to CNET, it requires Sandisk programs to convert images and video for the player which, not surprisingly, aren't available for OSX.
That is a very good point I was thinking of the average non-itunes torrent user.balamw said:Not if you buy your video from iTMS, which is one of Apple's key advantages IMHO. An integrated experience.
How is that a sign of quality? I can see the screws on my Panasonic remote does that make it bad? Hell the mbp has screws showing.strikeinsilence said:better built than the nano? are you joking? the thing has screws on the back of it.
That's right. The "geeks" will always go for more and more features, but they are in the minority. It's all about the ease-of-use and the all-in-one package with iTunes for the majority of buyers.ZoomZoomZoom said:Sandisk loses again.
For us here in the forums, getting better features might weigh more. After all, we're the type of people that lie awake at night pondering the speed advantages of 2.0gHz vs. 1.83gHz. But for other people?
The iPod offers a streamlined, easy-to-use, and popular online music purchase model, in addition to the "cool" factor and its solid design. An extra 4gb, while nice, has a lot to fight against before it'll win its place in the hearts of the general market.

That is true!CANEHDN said:This won't do much. Apple hasn't released a new iPod in a while. Apple will be releasing their new line of iPods very soon. They have to hit the holiday season. Everyone will then be so excited about the new iPods the new "iPod Killers" will be but just a memory.
