iPod nano

Yea, so apple shrunk the iPod. First off, why can't another company come up with something similar? It's annoying that apple seems to be the only one innovating. Secondly, will everyone now replace their old iPods with this thing?

As I've said, I hate apple and their products and the iPod is nothing special other than it looks cool. I really don't know what to say here. I just know that this thing is going to sell 40 million units and I am not happy about it. It's just an mp3 player with a harddrive.. I've got one that is cheaper and does the same thing and isn't made by apple.. does anyone out there know that alternatives not only exist but pre-dated the iPod by a significant number of years?

Ugh..

It's because Apple has branded themselves as being "cool", so people aren't necessarily buying the product, so much as they're buying the status of it. There are tons of comparable MP3 players on the market... But they probably don't have clever little catchy names like "iPod" or the same budget to spend on getting kick-ass commercials created by the best-of-the-best in the advertising industry.

Those MP3 phones look pretty fly!
