PS..can your ipod:
Play FM radio right out of the box?
Display pictures in more colors than ipod photo?
Record voice or FM streams?
Last 16 hours on battery?
Use SRS WoW to improve sound?
Support .ogg ?
Play .avi files?
be used as an external media drive (so you can drag files OFF it w/o any 3rd party software)?
can you plug your digital cam directly into your pod and upload pics w/o a pc?
mount in linux without using gtkpod?
and do all that for $100 less than a 20gb 4th gen ipod?
can your iriver:
create playlists on the fly?
create smart playlists on your PC?
play music from the largest online music store?
use an internal equalizer?
can you find a specific song you want out of 5,000 in less than 10 seconds?
you only think itunes sucks because you dont use it/never had used it. you think that just because your MP3 player lasts 2 hours longer then mine and because it plays local radio that its better?
please, just another person bashing something thats popular.
