If you buy online, at the Apple store the price for a 4gig is $199 and the 8gig is $249. Sometimes right after the holidays you will find them cheaper but I'm not sure if there will be a permanent change.
I could see that happening in the very near future, the original ipod is bigger than the others so even if the shrink it a little they won't have to worry about the kind of room they would if they had to do it with a nano.
I was recently considering the WII so I'm glad you have it because I'm curious, doesn't that controller wear your arm out? I'm wondering how long you will be able to play without switching over to the other arm.
I was rooting for the Giants as well but their performance on Sunday was depressing. Indianapolis looks like they are going to be in for sure; since there is no doubt that they will probably kill Houston this week.
I'm sure they are getting a kick out of it, but is it going to help their sales? They have known for years that the rumors were focused on Apple and they did nothing to dispel them, now people are pissed and probably not going to buy.
I have been reading lot about the phone around the internet and I think Apple expects to be able to compete, the only problem I see is that if the information on gizmodo is correct (someone says the price will be around $600)this phone is going to flop.
