I cant wait till someone hacks it and I can make it into a remote control for my home media room

Once that bad boy gets GPS or bluetooth i would have it in my car.

a friend of mine (who works at best buy) already has one. traded his 80G vidoe for it

I have a 8gb nano, which I only have because it was free. it's kind of neat, but I really fail to see the fascination in these things.

Loki, you did read about that kid who hacked the i-phone right? Someone gave him a car for it--350Z I think

The IPhone has some special type of glass that REALLY resists scratching. Its not like that cheapo **** that verizon has on their phones. I was pretty impressed by it.

The IPhone itself sucks because of the AT&T service. That and all its apps are web based.

As for Apple IPods, they too are the suck. They are proprietary bullshit. I have had a Sandisk Sansa, and a random generic player from BestBuy like this one:
http://www.walgreens.com/store/produ...2855107#review
99 bucks for 4GB plus u can add miniSD

I highly recommend the sandisk Sansa 8GB + miniSD- 130
and I am a bit intrigued by the Microsoft Zune 30GB which just dropped its price to 199.

I find more "interesting" the fact that they dropped the price of the expensive iPhone by $200! Considering that they are still making money at the lower price, they had a crazy profit margin on the original units sold.

Stupid trivia, does anyone know why so many small electronics (and other tech/guys items such as golf clubs) are priced around $299?

no, but manufacturing is coming down in price and the technology isnt that different from the iphone, margins are smaller, but greater numbers
