tomi, as your co-author -- you are and have been saintly. As you know I grew up on appple macs and would mourn their demise. we have six of them in the house + iPods and iTrpis and i--everything

the notion of going over to the dark side always fills me with dread.

However, what makes me sad is the brutish blind aggression, against your original posting -- and your patient replys to all. Would I want another co-author -- NO.

not that there has not been good debate -- but remember all posters you reveal more of yourselves than perhaps you recognise - and tomi has his integrity intact

The REALLY funny thing about al this is going to be the look on Tomi Ahonen's face when Apple announce the next generation iPods, probably full screen, touch screen navigation etc etc. and subsequently, the SALES OF IPODS WILL SPIRAL AGAIN.

Of course people are going to use music phones. Apple have even recognised this and we all know their phone, which is predicted for launch in 2007, is likely to turn that market upside down too.

But to spout the absurd notion that the iPod is already dead is sheer moronic stupidity. And I will be emailing Mr Ahonen the figures and I will expect to hear the sound of his grovelling apologies.

The customer is king, and a few rabid ranters like Ahonen are not going to make a jot of difference to anything.


I think that to get the business loans from banks you should have a great motivation. Nevertheless, once I've got a consolidation loan, because I wanted to buy a bike.

Set your life more simple take the loan and everything you want.


I took 1 st credit loans when I was a teenager and this aided me very much. Nevertheless, I require the short term loan over again.

I think they reacted so much because people can't still let the ipod go even if its time has finished

Your mode of explaining the whole thing in this piece of writing is genuinely fastidious, every one can easily be aware of it, Thanks a lot.
