Yeah, I reckon they will.

BUT there is a way some nanos can be hacked to play videos :O

But that's a whole different story.

Yes it's all just a big marketing scheme.

That'd be terribly hard to watch..

Almost painful, the size of the screen would make you have to strain a lot to watch videos on it..

All Ipods are a rip off, I can get a better MP3 player with 4GB memory for £25, runs for 15 hours on a single AAA battery
ohai little sig.
#14
Yea they definately will. I predict that by the next year or so, iPhone 2.0 will be released. The same way that theres about 7 versions of the Game Boy, theres gonna be a new iPod version soon.

i dont know if the initial post was a joke...but if not, it was ****ing disgraceful. i really think people should stop judging their music players by how THIN they are and start thinking about sound quality for a change. apple blows.
#16
I refuse to conform and buy an iPod. While my classmates strutted around with their fancy ear phones and impractically tiny MP3 players, I hummed the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and for that I feel, not better than them, but superior.

So my answer is I don't know.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

i see your point, but who wants a brick sticking out of your pocket, which might as well be a sign saying 'mug me', when you already have a phone, wallet, and whatever else of noticable value on you

EDIT: oh, the first post was merely an exaggerated view of what happened last time with the nanos

No you can't. Said mp3 player will not only look cheap, it will be flimsy, have no screen, be a spyware bot's dream come true and last for less time than an iPod. I have to admit I was pretty wary of the whole 'iPod's die after a year' thing before I bought one, but I've had my 30gb video iPod for 18 months, used it moderately (half an hour on the train every day usually, or whenever I'm out and about) and had no problems with the battery. I'm half hoping it does die soon though so I have an excuse to buy the new one

Besides, there's now more people that can't afford iPod's jumping on the "I'm not going to conform to buying an iPod" bandwagon than there people are who spend half their time trying to master grade 2 guitar on their squier bullet and saying MCR can't play guitar at all.

they said something on MAXconsol that apple already revealed it...its exactly like an iphone, minus the phone...and i think its in 8 and 16 gigs, no to sure
#23
I think they are to wound up with Leopard at the moment and the new Imacs to bother. They will probably scam the computer owners and then move back to the mp3s.

it is true that there making a new ipod because i went to the guys at best buy and target and they are getting the nanos off the selves to make room for the the new ipod. they said it comes out this fall.
#31
i bought a ipod because of itunes and the itunes music store. i personally like my 30gb video ipod.
#32
this is how technology works these days. you buy something that's the new 'amazing' thing right when it comes out, and look like a fool in a few months when they make it ten times better and ten times cheaper after they've fiddled with it a bit. you can't avoid the upgrades, it's what companies do when they get better with technology. however, you can be a little smarter and either not try and buy the amazing new thing, and settle for something cheaper that suits your purpose, or you can wait for the amazing new thing to improve if you've got some patience, and you won't be as pissed when they make some changes.

And iPods look classy and not as though they're about to snap at any moment?

Apple uses the marketing technique known as "planned obsolescence", In which the company makes it so the product they release will become obselete and the consumer will have to buy a new product to keep up with the service. In other words, Ipods aren't really too functional and it's all just a giant scam. Creative FTW!
