All the rumored pictures look like sleeker Zen Visions with a touch screen. Not exactly a design revoltion.
Personally, I'm bored with the design of the iPod, it's been around for long enough. Sure it's been succesful, but surely it's time for something new?

Why screw around with success, the 5G iPod was nearly perfect I'd say, you'd be hard pressed to make any improvements over it and I've tried every iPod competitor wannabe that's come around and nothing compares to the iPod, let alone comes close to actually beating it.

I just got the video iPod for my wife which was the 30GB for $250 and I got her the latest one I believe but what's the best next deal going to be with this new Gen 6?

What's so relevant? Again, I ask, 'cause I have no clue and just want a little simple explanation.
The one I got (genereation 5.5) has a QVGA screen and a longer lasting battery life. It's also thinner than the generation 3. That's about it.

I also got mine for $300.00 CAD with tax =)

I have had both an ipod (G4) and now my zune and I like the zune 10x better than the old ipod. And I know that the two shouldn't be placed against eachother since one is outdated, but my friend has one of the new G5's and I cannot honestly say that I like it better than my zune. I think the zune is some serious competition for ipod, it's just that people are too ignorant to stray away from the norm. I love this 3" screen, gone in 60 seconds never looked so good! It looks as good or better from 1 foot than on my 60" SXRD from 15 feet.

I like the quality of mine. The only reason why I bought the 5.5G one is because it was at a really good price.

Boondoock saints never looked so good..

REALLY? My friend has a black Zune and I hate it. The screen is cool and the fact that it goes widescreen for movies and pictures is a great idea but I just can't stand using buttons to control it, I've gotta have the scrollwheel lol. Maybe I'm just used to the iPod, I got my first iPod in November of '04 so I've grown quite attached to them

The Zune looks all pixelated and it's ugly and the Wi-Fi sucks because there's no one to "squirt" songs to.
