..and replaces it with the 20, what’s so odd about that? Same price, more space. Woo.

Makes sense to me.

Fucking A! And me with my newly obtained 2nd gen. 20GB. At least when I upgrade I can outdo my sister’s spanking new 30GB. Jesus, when would any human need to have a months worth of music though? And actually, those touch buttons are crazy-sensitive.

is there anyone who even legally owns 10,000 songs that you actually want to hear? i guess it would be cool to get a dozen shostakovich symponies on on device, or a single uncompressed mahler symphony……

I would love to get old radio shows on MP3 and listen to them at work. That would be great.

I’ve been meaning to take advantage of Audible.com’s “This American Life” deal. Now THAT would help keep me sane at work. Ira Glass’s soothing nasality…

Well, the 30gb(which had the 15gb, or half the size) is now the 40gb, which has the 20gb and the 10gb. 10gb X 2 = 20gb X 2 = 40gb. All nice and symetrical.

Has anyone been impressed by the new iPod page? I question the value of a styleswitcher that only swaps two image files …

Just as a solid rock is not shaken by the storm, even so the wise are not affected by praise or blame.
