Some how I don't feel right about buying it, but those little iPods, with their small form factor and 20GB of space, are just what I need to have my music with me in the car and at the office. Really, I do not trust my employer not to snoop around on my PC, so I better take my mp3's with me. I've noticed that there are special addition iPods like that U2 ipod version or fancy color ones -- I am not going to go for any of that, it goes against my sensibilities. Yet, I really think Apple did something very smart with this little music player.
I wonder what is inside the ipod? Is it a ppc board? I imagine people will be putting Linux on there eventually. Speaking of which, these ipods should be mountable so that I can easily put my music on them from my Linux PC?
