Submission + - It's too soon for flash-based video iPods and why.

Johanna writes: "CNET: Today's super rumour is that Apple is aiming to replace all hard-disk-based iPods — the 30GB and 80GB models — with NAND flash storage, placing the hard disk in the box of toys that nobody wants to play with anymore. It should be noted this is a rumour, but a fairly well substantiated one.

[But...]

We don't expect to see a flash-based video iPod any time soon. The development of NAND flash is advancing fast, but not quite enough to consider implementation in a video iPod yet — chips have a limited capacity at the moment, but this is changing fast. We agree with [Wu] in as far as we may see a 30GB flash-based model towards the beginning of 2008."

To understand a program you must become both the machine and the program.
