    This refresh was a refresh imo. The new nanos are great with the silver catching my eye as the most desirable.

    Have yet to download iTunes 8, but I heard it's great.

    itunes 8 is shiny. there's a new visualiser nobody talked about at launch, but was in the rumours. it's trippin', wack AND outta here.

    what is this, a fashion show?
    oh wait.... yeah.

    I love the colour range of the new Nanos. Nice and bright - when you see them lined up like that.

    I suppose, itunes 8 is a nice large 80mb file to download. Apple, please release nice small patches, please.

    So far, iTunes 8 has been a massive waste of time for me. That stupid album art sorting method is about as usful as, to quote Dodgeball, a 'cock flavoured lollypop'.

    Also, there is still no iPod that shoots bees. I'm not interested in a new iPod until it shoots bees, they seem to do everything else.

    i read on engadget that it's not working with AirTunes and that connecting the iPod Touch will give you the BSOD.:duh:
    Guess a patch or two will appear shortly.

    Does watching the new ones count as too much? :B

    Does he reference shooting bees in one or something?

    If so, I need a new feature request.

    i've read reports of BSOD-ing the Vista computers when iTunes 8 and iPhone/Touch is plugged in. anyone else experienced this?

    iTunes 8 wasn't anything special. iPod Touch is even less of a refresh than iPhone 3G to iPhone. iPod Nano looks fantastic, would buy that if i haven't already have a iPhone.

    i actually quite like that version of the nano. especially with all those colours! :D the last one was terrible imo.

    tempting to pick one up, i must admit. i was looking at getting a cheap 8gb sony to replace my broken ipod, but i might just wait until the new nano's come out and get one of those instead.

    OOOOOhhh Nano in perdy colors!

    *Oh snap!*
    Its an Ip-od... a very closed, over priced device.. just like the Zune!

    if you want an mp3/video device I have found much more pleasure in ownership having a sony video walkman, and there are many other fine choices out there that allow you to easily place, remove or pull music and video from without any special software... as long as your running xp or later.

    In my opinion, someone who buys an Ipod doesn't have a clue, or an appreciation of the open alternatives out there.

    God forbid that they just want the ipod because it looks good or that its their choice, there are always more options out there but its upto the end user to decide if they are better or worse or if it'll meet their needs.



    Im very tempted by the new Nano looks slinky :)

    aww they are making my Zune look even fatter and uglier than it already does :(
    Still, it works. And I must be one of really not very many people in the UK to have one :)

    It's Magnetoshpere which started life as an independent free add-on. Looks like Apple has adopted it.
