Well, I've had a think about the iPod and I've read other peoples thoughts about it and I agree with the general consensus: it's over-priced. You would have thought that after The Cube debacle, Apple would have learnt their lesson, and it seemed they did when they re-launched the iBook, which - in my opinion - is good value for money. $400 is too much to pay for an mp3 player [ok, so you can store other data on it as well, but this added functionality still doesn't justify the price]. I think the $200 to $250 price mark would have been more like it. So, will the iPod go the same way as The Cube? I hope not.
