My wife showed me this link:

http://www.cnn.com/ 2004/TECH/ptech/01/11/ sony.minidisc.ap/index.html (AP/CNN)

Buy an MD player instead of an iPod, I guess they're thinking...who would actually put 45 hours on a MiniDisc? (Must be code for "copy your mp3s onto it")

I love MDs but Sony should *probably* give up on the format in the USA. I'd love to be proven wrong, though!

YOUR Out-Of-Context Quote of Whenever (thanks, MoeGates!): "I wish MY countrymen weren't so uptight about stuff like outdoor marajuana use and casual man-on-man anal love."
(sarcastic applause)

The best uses I've seen for the MD here are taping concerts and to replace tapes in four-track recorders. Just let it go, Sony. Stick with what works for ya... yes, that includes the MD, but not here.

The 11-hour mp3 setup is just about right for most driving trips, exercise regimens and the like.

45 hours seems a bit extreme. It's like, more for more's sake, or something.

There's never 45 hours of music that I need on hand.

The advent of the iPod made me really happy about not having enough money for an MD years ago, and 45 hours in a new MD really isn't going to change that.

I'm sticking with the ol' iPod/iTunes combo.

i think one of the biggest reasons the md caught on so well in japan initially is that there are actual stores and shops where you can go to *rent* audio cd's. thus making the md burning process infinitely more convenient. whereas in america the explosion of mp3 downloading makes the iPod the ideal tool. although, for my money i still consider the md a better investment just because it's not as reliant on computers as the ipod.

That link is awesome, thanks. One of the Niestat brothers was on KROQ this morning taking credit for the battery-replacement plan.

i don't know about you, but i wouldn't want to pay $99 each time i needed apple to replace my battery or pay $49 to do it myself. and even the external battery pack touted by belkin has an up front cost of $69.99. but to each their own.

Or just buy it at Best Buy and pay $40 for the replacement plan. 18 months later they'll give you a brand new one rather than just replacing the battery.

Admittedly, Apple needs to find a way for future generation iPods to open easier for battery replacement (I really don't feel like taking a flathead screwdriver to my case, thank you very much,) but all the flak about the battery's life is stupid. Lithium ions in any form usually last around 18 months; thank you, come again.
