It figures Apple would release a new iPod only a few months after I got mine. The main feature that appeals to me are the iPod Mini controls, which are much nicer than the old style iPod controls. I’ve never run the battery all the way down on my iPod (while listening), and I haven’t filled up its hard drive yet. And hey, I’m not as bad off as Karl Lagerfeld, who now owns 40 dated iPods and a custom made bag to hold them.
