In all honesty, it's kind of a bummer that these sites are so obsessed with breaking Apple secrets all the time. Imagine how cool it would have been if nobody knew this was coming out, and bam, suddenly it's announced..

It would be great for fans, but suck hard for general consumers. Take me for example. In 2004, I picked up a 20GB Gen3 as my first iPod. Two weeks later, Apple comes out with the brand new version with a vastly improved battery life. So it was back to the store to "upgrade". Now, about two hours before this news hit the net, I picked up a 30GB Gen5 to replace my 20GB Gen4. If the rumor is true, I'm strongly considering returning this and waiting a few months.

If I were a fan boy who loved blowing my money on anything Apple pushes, I'd be a pig in s**t right now. As a person who buys his iPod from his local Wal-Mart, it sucks that the new toy I just picked up picked up could already be outdated by a version with better features, improved battery life, etc.

The meat is rotten, but the booze is holding out. Computer translation of "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
