I find it amusing that Apple has achieved hegemony over the personal music industry. The very existence of the word "podcast" is a testament to that. They've finally achieved that elusive Windows or AOLness that's eluded them for so long. And now, instead of suing others, they've become the monolithic oppressors being targeted for litigation. The Beatles' Apple Music label looks like it'll be causing them tons of trademark problems now that they've branched into music sales.
The various iPods, for the most part, are great products; it's just that there are slightly better and cheaper MP3 players out there. I use Cowon's iAudio U2 myself; it puts the iPod Shuffle to shame. The video iPod is slick and sexy, but the Sony PSP trumps it in every way (except for the iPod's hard drive). And I hate iTunes in particular; it's such a resource hog. You could also making a drinking game out of Apples release schedule; take a shot every time a new iteration of the iPod comes out.
