Regular Ipods = hdd = dead in a few months
Dead in a few months? I"ve been using my 30 gig video iPod for about every day over the past year and it doesn't seem that dead to me... and that includes sticking it in my pocket. I take it with me everyday to college and it stays in my pocket the whole time and hasn't shown any problems. Please, gain some knowledge about iPods before you dismiss them as just "hard drives".
Nanos are overpriced. They're tiny, sure, but that's just it. They're tiny. They're great if you don't have a lot of music and you don't mind taking it to your computer to swap out music when you need something new, but if you have a big library, get a regular iPod.
