I think spending over 100 euros for an mp3 player is a bad idea IN ANY CASE.


WTF 100 Euros  O_o

Here in France is going to be... something like... 200 Euros !!

The I pod 1st generation still costs 150 Euros...

Need to move from here....

Well I brilliantly put my iPod through the wash this morning.

looks like I'm stuck getting this new one now.

I'll just get an 8GB nano 2nd gen if I can though.  I don't really care about the video.

I'd buy one if I wasn't already saving up so much ;D
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

The iPod "Classic" sounds appealing. 160 gigs wheeee.

As far as the touch, I prefer something more durable.  :P I'm rough with my mp3 players. I want something small, built like a tank, and with decent storage.

So far my Zen has done well, but I still have the factory plastic sheet covering the screen for fear of scratching it (I tried one of those polyurethane sports covers, but I can't operate the thing with it on).
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Yes I agree. But since I don't have the need of that much storage (yet), i'm thinking of getting the 80 gigs one. Because the price will drop again by the time I want the 160 gigs one.

So far my Zen has done well, but I still have the factory plastic sheet covering the screen for fear of scratching it (I tried one of those polyurethane sports covers, but I can't operate the thing with it on).

I'm not sure what you mean by polyurethane sports covers. I use a PDA screen protector for every portable electronics with a screen that I have (cellphone, DS, GBA, ipod, etc). And it works perfectly fine for the touch thing (like for DS).

The Zen players (at least the old ones) come with a hard fake leatherish protective cover, which decreases the chance that the machine breaks through mechanical shock (ie. dropping it) to near zero. I used mine all the time (until I broke the phone plug, never carry your mp3 player on you while working with heavy power tools) with the cover, but I had the cover with a hole for the window.

The iPhone is built like a friggin' tank. They couldn't even do serious damage to it. I think/hope the touch is too. ;)

2-day review on 3rd gen 8gb black ipod nano

thing 1: sexy

thing2: fun clear video quality.  8GB not the BEST storage capacity for video, of course... but it's one of the best of this size you'll find.

thing2(again, but really 3): great new features and settings.  Favorite: The ability to shuffle WITHIN an album or artist, and not only shuffle your entire collection.

thing3 (for real): menu is goodness.  Half the screen is now dedicated to album art work panning by or to inform you of which option you are , at the time, highlighting.  Also: When on hold the screen automatically goes to a display without backlight showing the time, battery life and whether you are playing, paused or stopped.

thing4: so much cock

thing5: scratch that last thing (about cock)

thing55: back of ipod again perfect mirror to check my perfect hair in on the go (like 1st gen nano!)

thing6: I'm not really that conceded, but my hair is pretty cool.

So yes, good new generation iPod.  I wish they'd stop making new generation ipods though... it makes me sad when something better in every sense comes out when I own the previous version (read: Nintendo DS 1 month prior to announcement of DS Lite)
