The beat was weak.

So the new iPods were announced today at Apple's "The Beat Goes On" event. Since my current iPod's storage capacity will be hitting critical mass soon, I was particularly interested. Well, color me a bit underwhelmed. The phone-less iPhone (a.k.a. the Touch) seems cool, what with the wifi and all, but the 16GB storage is a joke. It looks like the 160GB "iPod Classic" just may be a Christmas present to myself in a few months.

Oh, and for those that bought an iPhone within the last couple of months (before the announcement of today's $200 price drop): that's what you get for being rabid members of the Cult of Mac.

i'm sure it was well worth it to many of them. and, personally, i thank them for desiring to be ground-level guinea pigs.

160 GIGAbytes?? holey schnikeys.

The Cult of Mac (along with service industry women) seems bent upon taking all of my money. I covet the new iMac something fierce and this new iPod classic looks like a must-have as well.

curse you, Steve Jobs!

jasdye - As people grow, so do their music collections. It only makes sense to bump up the storage.

reg - That's what you get for drinking the Kool-Aid. Don't forget to leave the money on the dresser for Jobs. (Did I just align cults with prostitution?)
