Re: Apple Killed the iPod Mini

Goodness gracious professionalism, that's tiny!

Now the whole deal for college students (where they gave away a free 4 GB iPod mini with a Mac purchase) suddenly makes sense.

Re: Apple Killed the iPod Mini

That is incredible. Goodbye iPod Mini, you rocked but this new Nano iPod is just a beautiful piece of engineering (whether it'll sell or not is another story entirely.)

Re: Apple Killed the iPod Mini

Wow.. that thing is just awesome. I can get the 4gig for $229.99 with my Purdue discount so I'll probably be ordering a new one tonight. I'm thinking the black one.

EDIT: Well I just ordered a black 4gig model of the iPod Nano. Once it arrives I'll upload pictures and maybe a "review" if I've got some free time.

Re: Apple Killed the iPod Mini

Wow, best upgrade for an iPod yet. I'm glad Apple got rid of the Mini...I found it to be quite dumb. This new nano looks sweet though.

Take a good look at an iPod shuffle. Congratulations! You just determined the height!

Shuffle = 3.3" tall
Nano = 3.5" tall

The sad part I see with this being the successor to the Mini is that...
a. It's 2/4 GB compared to the 4/6GB
b. It's 2 stale colors compared to 4 vibrant and different colors (compared to the other iPods). (Also, the fact that the click wheel on the black model is also black just prooves they were too lazy to think of another color).

Anyways, here is some more related iPod/iTunes news...

If they made them bigger than 1GB, it would be better than an Ipod NANO anyday.

Who doesn't like combos?

MP3 player
USB drive
Voice recorder
FM radio and recorder

Best of all you don't need a stinking cord to download stuff to the player.

Technically, the iPod is two of those, and it can do the other ones with accessories. I hypothesis that the reason why the headphone port is on the bottom of the iPod Nano is so that accessories can use the dock port to control it, now that the remote port is gone.

The things that the iPod really, really has going for it is that they are a bit of a fad right now, and that iTunes is the most amazing program ever created. I can explain to non-techies how to use iTunes. How do you explain to someone how to use Windows Media Player to sync their Digital Audio Player?

I too am disappointed to see that the iPods are dropping in size while staying the same in price. Still, that thing is soo sweet.
I <3 my 40gig Photo though.
