  1. I’ve already bought an iPod Nano recently and I don’t really see what the new ones offer that would make me one to upgrade. The longer battery life is appreciated but not worth buying a new Nano for.

  2. Amen to that Paul. I am done with iPods for now, and getting a bit of an incremental feature fatigue.

  3. Given all the rumors that were ciruclating on the big / wide-screen, touch screen iPod … what a let down !

    Wondering if their new search feature would be available as a Firmware upgrade to the 5G Video iPods

  4. Apple is doing a great job of shining their new products to shadow the others off slowly as they usually do. The features are no where near as notably fashionable for the techies eyes, and is a clueless state for the average consumer.

    Let’s just say with Apple knowing their market, their input, and feedback – they are complacent and make it their job to put this impression on the iPod consumers. If you are a true iPod enthusiasts then Apple has you right where they want you, satisfied, not overwhelmed. Satisfaction from the iPod and options of enjoyment comes from the media – iTunes, which is what makes the iPod complete and people overwhelmed.

    In small I am kind of satisfied, but I do not see myself purchasing any newer iPods as a replacement. Coming to the iPod platform (yes platform) as a new buyer should have many thrilled with the prices and features compared to earlier versions, which is what Apple wanted (first comment).

  5. I just bought one of the small shuffles with clip. Ironically it is the first MP3 player I have ever had and I’m definately in the geek category. I been waiting for something small and focused, this looks perfect.

    The only gripe I have is that Apple doesn’t ship to APO addresses. I have to mail it somewhere then have them repackage and ship.

  6. I’m done too. I have had a horrible experience with them not working after a short period of time. I’m shopping around for something else.

  7. Oranges Are More Refreshing… Wednesday, September 13, 2006

    I have never owned a Apple piece of kit and now more than ever I don’t want to…

    The whole whiter than white image I am afraid is for purists like me alone not Apple’s…

    The Mac and Ithis and Ithat well there are better products on the market Apple rely on “cool” this is for sheep not your average intelligent consumer…

    Even if there were movies worth watching I have not got the time anymore…

    Besides they are poo…

  8. I’m still running the rev 1 iPod, yes, the one with the scroll wheel with 5 GB. Why? Cause it plays podcasts and music easily.

    This is a great forum question and the results are telling. Personally, I am waiting to replace my 5 year old iPod when I’m compelled and to be honest, I’ll be compelled when the rumored 16:9 video, touch-screen iPod comes out and works. Before that, I can see Apple is just prepping itself and testing the waters with interim equipment (that won’t be the end-game).

    My bet, once more major studios sign on to iTunes – the cool stuff will roll (and be rushed to market) to make the big splash, not before.

  9. the 13th and 14th were going to be apple-free days, eh? ;->

  10. I already have two iPods! (Shuffle, 60GB Video). How many does a person have to have? :-)
