Whether or not they actually did it is completely separate from:

A) how convenient it is for the government to be able to charge him with something
B) what exactly the government will do with him *when* he's convicted (I would like to be able to say "if"...but really)

Like they say, you're not paranoid if they really are out to get you.

If you were looking for a tablet in the first place, I would have expected you to mention the whole Internet thing in your initial post. So yeah, an mp3 player--which is what the iPod originally was anyway--does not usually compare well to a tablet. This, plus your statement that you'd rather listen to a radio, seems you weren't really looking for an mp3 player in the first place and just didn't know it.

Oh, and the Fuze comes with a radio too. Do iPods these days? And I forgot to mention, a microphone as well, though no camera, because it's NOT A FREAKIN' TABLET.

You might have guessed by now that I don't see the point of a tablet ;)

Rockbox ( on a Sansa Fuze, day after Thanksgiving sale for $49. Expandable memory via microSD card slot; also picks up radio, has microphone, plays AAC, OGG, FLAC, etc., etc., etc. Comes with a number of games etc. Not ridiculously high resolution display, but I really don't see the point of that or random apps so hey. Oh, plus you can skin it. Can an iPod do that? No?

Unfortunately this was a few years ago when they still made them with physical wheels. Now they're making them with capacitance thingies like iPods :P
