    I succumbed to the debil.....

    ...and bought an iPod Nano.

    Yeah, it's fidelity is inferior to my Zen Touch, and the battery life is....but this thing is small enough to not have to worry about it falling out of my pocket every time I lean over at work...it actually has cases for it and accessories (the Zen Touch never did..), and no stupid shuffle button that always gets pressed.

    Also bought one for my dad for christmas....I know he listens to music when on his motorcycle using an am/fm radio....so if he's going to use headphones, might as well have some good music.

    Does it work well? Do you feel it was worth the money? Okay then it's all good. Oh, but you are going to hell for this, you know that right?

    I have an odd feeling my gf bought me a black ipod nano, i've wanted one for a while ever since I bought a pair of shuffles for us, ended up giving mine to my mom then my gf took my ipod video since it sounded better on her headphones and I got shafted with the pink ipod mini...

    I <3 Apple hardware. My new MacBook is coming this week or next. w00t!

    ... but for the price vs. features ... iPod for the lose. I'd at least like an FM tuner and maybe time shifting? Oh yah I can spend half as much and get twice the features elsewhere.

    Personal preference, though. Enjoy it!

    Despite the fact that I hate the ipod's interface, controls, and lack of radio, I still come crawling back for some reason.

    OK, who changed my topic....it was "debil" on purpose!

    FM radio is nice, but too commercial-laden for my tastes.

    I have a nano and really like it so far. I actually like the controls. I buy a lot of music from Itunes so its nice to just copy them directly to it and not have to worry about hacking apples proprietary format to get it on another mp3 player. Sound quality is excellent. Lots of peripheral support too. Plus no spinning hard drive to skip when I'm running or working out....

    I've never had my ipod video, creative zen (with the humongous laptop type hard drive) or ipod mini skip when I'm running and especially not when I'm cycling. Those drives can take a lot of live G's before skipping the huge onboard memory buffer. You'll have to be doing some funky ass things to get it to skip.

    Maybe the new ones are a lot better. I had an early creative product and it skipped like crazy when I ran, so I've stayed away from them... Besides, I just haven't needed that much storage space...

    So if I bought a Nano...could I use my regular MP3 files from my PC and current MP3 player on the Nano? Or do you have to convert them to another "Apple/Ipod Only" format?
    Just Do It..

    it will play regular mp3 files as well. Its the only thing I've found that supports apples proprietary Itunes format though...

    They actually give you the tools to do that in iTunes! No hacking required!
