Well, yeah. And actually once a few songs have loaded and the drive spins down...

    Why Apple's theory is flawed

    The iPod is a luxury device. Almost everyone who has one can't afford it, yet they do. The device crossed the line of acceptable price for a music player, and we loved it. Now that there is a slightly better version, essentially the same device, Apple expects us to upgrade since "Oh they paid...
