I do not own an iPod. For my travelling music needs I have a RioVolt mp3 CD player that cost $130 and takes $.19 CDs full of my mp3s. I like the IDEA of the iPod, but there's something about it that is so NOT Apple - the graphic interface. Why is it that the world's #1 proponent of eye-pleasing hardware and GUI's came up with a b&w folder-based screen for their next-level audio player?? Why doesn't the iPod have AT LEAST a b&w iTunes built in?? I think that having iTunes as a part of the iPod package would be great as a way to distinguish it from all other audio players and fully Apple-ize it. Also, for non-Mac users who own and use the iPod, this would be a great way to get used to the functionalty and look of iTunes before it comes to Windows. This is all much ado about very little, but whenever I see an iPod all I can think of is a calculator with a fancy cover. Thoughts?
