Looks like Apple is starting to leak info about the next iPod. This is the only thing I don’t like about this product or the company that makes it: they update it far too often. Granted, people flock to buy the new iPods when they come out (estimates put sales of the latest iPod at 3.9 million (iPods, not dollars) since last October according to Think Secret).

Eventually, this is going to die out as consumer fatigue sets in. There are only so many people who are going to buy something that they know will be improved within a few months (and their current model isn’t upgradeable).

To the product itself, I don’t like the idea of having to touch the screen I’m watching movies on to access the GUI. Nevermind that my finger would be in the way of the GUI, in all likelihood. Oh yeah, and the fingerprints are going to be horrible. It should ship with that lint-free cloth you’re supposed to use to clean it that no one has on hand.
