Yea Apple came to my Uni a few weeks back to give us Comp Sci students a talk about working for them. They'll continue to roll out a new OS every year and "pretty much all of our current iPods will be obsolete in the next 12 months". They also referred to big Steve as a bleeding heart liberal :lol:

I thought the iPhone *is* the 6th gen iPod? It's only a matter of time before they ramp up the capacity on it.
I rather like my gp2x and as you're rather nerdy Steve I think you would like it too. Basically a Linux handheld that plays divx, mp3s, MAME, anything you can code it to do. Lots of OSS constantly coming out for it. I don't get the time to use it as much as I would like so it ends up being an mp3 player more often that not.

I make phone calls with my phone, I take pictures with my camera, and I watch TV on my TV.
Admittedly, I have two PDAs sitting on the desk here, one Windows, one Linux. But the Windows one is my car GPS and the Linux one was a €50 impulse buy. Oh. I suppose that means I [u:386c7a53dc]am[/u:386c7a53dc] slightly susceptible to gadgets.
i think the new microsoft yune looks cool - better and cheaper than a video ipod and it being microsoft will probably play most formats out of the box (cue microsoft are evil debate). a 30gig one is around £130.
You think the 360 would have done so well if it had no good games to showcase it.[/quote:ff1972d475]
Well, that helped of course, but it was the first of the next gen consoles, so anything running on it was going to look better than the current batch. Paying off all the magazine reviewers probably helped too.
The current Vista "WOW" campaign is a total piece of shit though. Maybe they just don't market anything very well.
