There's also a lot of talk going on about defective screens.

My boss just got a black one from his wife over the weekend and it is already sratched to hell. I own the last generation of the 40GB which is white and it has some scratches but nothing like this. I have been thinking about buying a nano for fun but will probably wait. I do have over 25,000 songs in iTunes now.
My wife has the Mini in blue and that finish is very delicate..
I was amazed at the size and the display. Apple sure makes cool toys..
Just got mine in the mail last week ... yep it's got a few scratches already. The finish is almost "slippery" and I'm worried the thing will hit the floor and that will be the end of it. The screen size is pretty tiny but I can read it fine just the same.
My main complaint is iTunes ... in short; it blows. I dont need Apple to organize my music collection. It wants to load everything from a single default location and wont show up as a drive on my PC. I dont need cheesy application software to load data on a drive! INSANE ... Just have the thing show up as a 4 gig USB drive and let me stuff it full. I'm just sure iTunes is gathering/reporting info back to the mother ship for future spam attacks.
Isnt there a hacker out there that can crack this proprietary Apple code and firm my iPod into a big ole USB drive? Stop writing viruses and spyware for a couple of minutes and do something destructive that will help somebody. C'mon all you Linux gurus, lets see it happen.
Trying to clear the player is about like a calculus test and I see there are concerns about the internal battery. I bought it to run with but like the rest of you I am waiting for some armor before it goes in the gym bag.
The sound is very good and it plugs right into the audio system ... but I didnt invest that much to listen to MP3 so it's more of a novelty than a legitimate audio source.
I was hoping to score a set of the new shure headphones and get a huge upgrade for my old running system ... RCA Lyra ... That Lyra takes about 2 minutes to load up with new tunes and has hit the ground at a 7 minute pace a few times only to jump up and keep going.
If anyone is looking at getting a Nano... I'd wait and go with iRiver, Creative or RCA - check out the software first. I would look for something that will allow direct file copy. Make your life easy.
This iPod is like having a 7 foot tall Ferrari with the gas intake on the top of the roof ... every time you go to fill it up - you will be cursing.
If people have not already used it, one ipod "accessory" I find indispensible is SENUTI (google it and it'll pop up on top). It's the software Apple should have written but now that it is out, they won't ever include it. It makes reloading a whole lot easier, and if you ever lose your HDD (what prompted me to go searching for something like SENUTI), it's a lifesaver if you're like "The_kid" who has significant time invested in the loading process.
