information on the new ipod shuffle
The Mac-expo was today so lots of new goodies will be arriving shortly (including the super cool mac-mini - just check out the store)
http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL....0.1.0.0.0.1.0
Steve Jobs apparently was introduced with "Vertigo" for the keynote speech

in terms of the ipod - I listen to mine every day - I've had an ipod for about a year and a half now and consider it a great investment

Then get a regular 20GB. Seriously, if you buy a mini you may as well be throwing dollar bills at Steve Jobs. For only $50 more you get 16GB more of space. That is a difference of $62.25/GB of space with the mini versus $14.95/GB of space with the regular iPod. If you had the option to buy two items, almost exactly identical, would you honestly volunteer to pay an extra $47.30 for less product just because it is slightly smaller and has different colors?

Well i got my very first Ipod last month...the U2 one...and OMG! i loovve,and adore thing..like someone said not a day has gone by that i haven't used it.
It holds so much and i don't have to worry about changing a battery every few days, and i can put my whole entire CD collection in there if want or live stuff...or whatever its great and i can take it everywhere instead of carrying a bunch of CD's everywhere..
Mind you i did have a 128mb MP3 player before this which i loved too but i found for my muiscal needs it was just too small i couldn't have has much on it thus i was restricted in taking some songs out to put others in...but the IPOD i can stuff tons of songs in it without having to sacrafice others..its great!
All that to say ...that if you a huge music person with a some money to spare...get the IPOD you won't regret it... if not and you have a smaller music collection and a smaller budget get the mp3 player you won't regret that either...

personally my ipod is without question one if the best thigns i've ever bought. yeah alright the batteries a bit rubbish but everythign else totally makes up for that.
i can listen to aboslutely anything i want when i want, it still amazes me that i have my entire music collection in my pocket.

that said, dont bother with a mini (waste of time and money), in fact you dont have to go for ipod at all if you don't want to - i'm not too clued up on other brands myself but i'm sure thre are cheaper maybe better options out there.

in terms of your trip - i cant really tell you if you can afford it or not? you should really sit down and work out if it's a relistic amount of money to spend and more importantly what you might have to sacrifice on your trip if you dont have that extra $250.

however, if you do decide get an iopd or mp3 player i can pretty much guarantee you will never ever regret it! mine was worth every penny!

if i could afford it, i'd buy a BMW just so i could get the iPod dock installed... i can see why U2 got so involved with iPod & iTunes... it really is a revolution in music. your entire music collection in your pocket... able to be listened to by yourself with the headphones, at home or at work through your computer or a docking device, in your car... anywhere. any song, any time, any place. i used to lug around huge CD cases in my car, so that if i ever felt the urge to listen to something at a particular time, i could. now, all i bring is the iPod, hook it up through my car stereo's aux input, and it sounds fantastic.

so... like i said... I love my iPod, and my iPod loves me.

naturally i wouldn't have my ipod on 24/7. but it helps pass the time on the plane and long train/bus rides when other people are doing stuff.

I'd save the iPod money and keep it as extra spending money in Europe. Or, save it for something nice in the future.
