[SHRUG] My kids have iPods - a shuffle and a new Nano - and I think they're dreadful. The UI is poor, iTunes is a nasty piece of virus-ware that I wouldn't put on my PC and the sound quality is awful compared to my ATRAC Sony Walkman, which is smaller than his Shuffle, higher capacity than her Nano and cost somewhere between the two.

In fact, my son now rarely uses his Shuffle because he has a Sony Ericsson W800i ATRAC/MP2 playing phone which is a quarter of the size of an iPhone with a battery that lasts for days.

Apple is the Canon of the MP3 world - overhyped, overpriced, form-over-function junk products. No other company would have survived the battery-death and Nano-screen debacles.
