    Prophet Jobs came in my dream last night and said that God himself wants me to buy the iPod.

    And of course they wouldn't just add better features to the existing model without bumping up the lowest price by $70 would they?

    I bought one last year and hated the damn thing. I jail broke it and it still never did alot for me. I just don't like the design, its interface even with winterboard or whatever it was called. I'd rater spend a bit extra and buy a galaxy s2 if it costs more. The s3 is too much right now.

    Now that all phones play music, I'm surprised that there's still a large market for mp3 players, especially at that price range.

    but you really cant beat apple for their intuitive music browsing interface, plus all the nifty shit Itoons can do with playlists and all that.
