    Just out of curiosity can I ask why? Do you just hate synching your MP3 player or just like everything with you?

    No problem but it just bemuses me when people say they can't do with out xxxGig. My old shuffle was a 512 and I would start getting repeat after a week or so (depending on usage) plus by then I was happy to rehear the repeated songs.

    Because you can boot your mac straight off it and do lots of other stuff like carry all your apps with yah in case you really need that toast, but mainly to boot your machines with it!

    When you buy stuff from ITunes, is it still tied to the Ipod ?

    These look pretty neat... i was looking at them yesterday. The only thing is, i bet its pretty eassy to scratch the screen on them, and i wonder how long until someone hacks it so it becomes a drive in explorer in windows instead of using Itunes to convert the music.

    Apparently it is a lot more robust than the iPod. There is a video where the iPhone goes through stress testing and the guy gouges the screen with a knife and it doesn't scratch. I will see if i can find the link.

    It obviously won't stand up to the blender...

    Not if you burn it onto a CD-RW, then re-import it into Windows Media Player as an unprotected WMA or MP3 ;-)

    Both, I like having my 25gb's of music with me. It means depending on the mood I can listen to what I want. Very useful to take over to a mates also.
    I also use a pretty high encoding rate for my mp3 rips so albums are pretty big and I would only really get 2 albums on your shuffle

    1.5tb of lossless flacs hear all verified bit for bit images.

    Give it a few years and people will be all about lossless and 320gb ipods!

    Wifi is nice on this device, but what's its uses?

    It's alright to question the validity of it...but i'll think you'll eat your words once you've actually had the opportunity to try one. Manufacturers are tryin g desperately hard to create the ultimate portable internet browsing device - that can also do the old trick of playing mp3's and other media files .
    In terms of ergonmics, screen size, and browser the itouch is probably the best out there - the onscreen keyboard may need more refinement - and lack if HSDPA in the itouch is a missed opportunity, but other than that it looks like a fantastic little device.
