I don't really see how they're "ridiculously overpriced." That was probably true a few years ago, but now it's a pretty good deal. When I bought my 80GB, it cost me the same price as my 20GB had cost me about 2 years earlier. Sure, the Touch models are still too expensive, but considering that they're internet capable it's not THAT bad.

Okay, you're probably right, since I just realized my notions of iPods being way too expensive linger from the last time I was actually looking for new mp3 players (about two years ago ). By now, it really is a decent deal for a classic (you get tons of space), and just about all the models I once considered better both functionally and cost-effectively have been discontinued.

the problem with ipods is that they restrict you so much. if you want to download an app and add it you cant, unless you jailbreak it, and then your warranty is invalidated. you can download apps, but only the ones apple lets you, and youve gotta pay for them. plus when you have problems with it you have to deal with those apple "genius" pricks. and apple is trying to market their ipod touch as a gaming console now. the whole company is just a bunch of extortionists. theres also the "trendy" factor, if you care about that type of thing, but as far as mp3 players go i guess its not a big deal.

but there is always better technology out there, like this phone coming out later this year that destroys apple's http://www.engadget.com/2009/02/17/n...d-pumping-out/
its always good to look around and ask people who know about that stuff before you get talked into buying some expensive tech gadget.

It's funny that there have been a handful of players/phones that have come along in the past few years that always brought up the headlines "iPod/iPhone killer?" The only thing to come close was the Zune.
It just seems like everyone is always a step or two behind Apple. We can all bitch and moan about how hip it is, but not even Billy Mays can sell over 150 million units of anything if it sucks.

Well if you wanna go for the obvious choice its gotta be Overkill's Taking Over However if it was me I'd put Death Angel's The Ultra Violence. Some other '87 thrash albums to check out are Sacrifice's Forward To Termination, Razor's Custom Killing, Heathen's Breaking The Silence, Testament's The Legacy, Sodom's Persecution Mania, and Agent Steel's Unstoppable Force (more speed metal but of the highest quality).

well there are better touch screen phones than the ipod already out there, but apple just gets the credit because theyve marketed it more and they were the first to release it. i give credit to the marketing the most, i mean there are tons of products that suck but continue to sell alot (keystone beer for example)

but that nvidia phone can play bluray quality video for 10 hours straight and run 3d games and windows, and the way it plugs into the laptop like that is beyond cool as far as innovation goes. lets hope the phone isnt put on AT&T.

Sounds cool enough, but all I ever wanted was a cell phone that could dial, text and play music with at least 8 gigs of space. I wouldn't give two shits if it had a 1.5" black and white screen and played monophonic ringtones. All of the video and internet capabilities are just upping the size and cost of the damn things.
