    How many times will they show that commercial w/ the dancing shadow/silhouette people? It won't stop! I swear I see it 10 times a day. If I buy an iPod, will the commercials stop?

    If I buy an Ipod, is it guaranteed not to break when I thrash it around like in the commercial?

    That's why I record everything so I can zip thru annoying and stupid commercials. I'm even getting to the point of not watching live sporting events as well due to this reason much harder as everyone wants to comment about the game).

    To hell with Apple. I got a Creative Zen Xtra, and I'm quite happy with it. Can Apple beat 60 gigs for under $300?

    I can buy a big car for $28,000 - does that mean it's better than a small car for $28,000?

    If we can't get past the simplistic argument that "more capacity, less money" is automatically better, it's no wonder that we can't have productive discussions about things that really matter. In any event, isn't there a recent iPod thread that we can point to instead of rehashing the whole thing over again?

    I doubt it, but if you can convince everyone in the world to buy one, maybe.

    Sounds like you're watching too much tv. Do you have other hobbies?

    Actually Drew, I don't watch alot of TV at all. It just happens that when I do, I'll see that commercial 3 times out of any given 1 hour segment.
