I would rather spend $350 or $400 to see U2 live, which I know is what I'm going to end up doing (and more) next year.

Where I live you can't even rent a university student ROOM in a cockroach infested rotting house for $400 a month, much less have $400 pay for 2 months rent + food. So it's all relative - $400 isn't all that much money to me.

$400 isn't even my entire rent each month.

Don't have one. Don't want one. Overall, I'm not all that into gadgets anyway.

Oh, yeah, I meant for just my room. The half of the house we use is $875/month and we pay the utilities as well (not sure what the other half goes for). Our rent per person is going way down b/c we're getting a fifth person even though our city zoning law only permits a maximum of 4 non-related persons. Shhh, don't tell the landlady! The school's housing is about $600/person per month to share a 2 person dorm room and more like $800/person per month for a 4-5 person apartment with two bedrooms. I'll take living in the shit hole thanks!

They're wonderful machines. Fill it up, play it on random, and it's like listening to a radio station run by YOU! Hook it up in the car, to your stereo, or with headphones. It makes your entire music collection more accesible.

Does anyone else not like the colors? If I ever get an iPod, I'd get a regualr white one or maybe a blue mini, unless they come out with a color I like more.

An iPod only comes in white (except the U2 black one).

The minis have a multitude of colours.

What is the difference between the mini and the regular iPod?

Size and storage capability.

A mini only stores 4 GB. A 4th generation iPod stores either 20 GB or 40 GB. That's why the mini is somewhat smaller. It comes in metallic colours and it's got sharper lines (ie. corners aren't smoothed out).

Yeah, I know. What I meant was, I think the U2 black/red is ugly. I love the white ones and some of the mini colors (blue, maybe silver).

Iris, the mini is basically smaller and comes in pastel colors. The regular ones are larger (some hold more files) and are all white.

Oh, I totally agree. I think it's a hideous design. The white is classic.

Um, if I'm thinking what you're thinking, we're doomed!
