iPod Nano - insanely small

Ok, if it were April 1st, I wouldn't believe this: iPod nano, but it's not April or even the 1st of the month.

If a company can make an MP3 player that small, what's to prevent 1lb laptops that do everything (or most) of what I want on a daily basis?

This tiny thing sports a color screen, 2-4GB of space (that's a huge "thumb drive"), and only ways 1.5 ounces. What else ways 1.5 ounces? I certainly haul around books heavier than that.

k, Apple. When's the Newton coming back? Tomorrow? Can I preorder? Please?

And my iPod Mini is barely 3 months old... (bought quite cheaply when my sister got a new laptop.....we split the rebate ;-).

I was trying to look at specs, but having some computer problems. that an optical media or flash memory? From the size, I assume flash memory. I was surprised to see the size (small physically and large storagewise) of some of the "thumb drives" and associated technologies lately.

I've held off buying one of the "regular" ipods for a while, but the nano is just way to cool. Mine is ordered and on it's way in about a week!

It really is too small to resist. :) Maybe I'll change my donate button... ;)

Speaking of which, I need to post some blogging ideas I've got. The tops of the mountains weren't high enough. Pluto too close. The Milky Way to confining. More later. ;)

I mostly use my iPod for music, so the nano is totally pointless for me personally. Speaking of music, have you bought a music CD recently? Depending on the Publisher, they're starting to lock them down now so that you can only use the software on the CD to burn the tracks to your hard drive, it's really weird. The particular one I bought this week was produced by Sparrow and only allowed you to save in WMP format, not iTunes, which totally stinks, b/c then you can transfer the CD to the iPod. Anyways, just wondered if you've come across that...

The question is where is the firewire support?
