To much of a disappointment a lot of people only own their mp3 player for an average of 6 months... I joined this forum before purchasing a Sony NW-HD5... And all my mates told me that Video iPod will be coming soon and I will chuck the sony away fairly soon. I havent chucked it anywhere, it is with me all the time, and I love my Sony hd5... Also with people who buy iPods, they dont stick to the same model for months... I mean I know thats Apple's trick to intoduce gadgets like these into market after a lot of sales happen. So, I was saying that I have seen a trend among my friends. They seem to have pretty much every iPod model that comes in the market. Today we have that tiny square iPod shuffle..and everyone has that..tomorrow, god knows whatelse... Have people lost the track and purpose of owning a simple mp3 player that plays your favourite music at a touch of button...?
