Hi. Today I decided that perhaps it is time for me to buy an MP3 player. I'm a student and sometimes it helps to be able to plug-in some tunes while working or pass the time during lunch. My girlfriend has a Sony MP3 player which I never did figure out how to use with our Mac (their is some speculation that it isn't compatible) so I gave up on that project. For myself, I am considering buying an iPod. Originally I thought an iPod Shuffle should suffice (price being the main consideration and a love for all things Apple ) but then the prospect of tranfering photos had me more convinced that I am destined for an iPod Nano. So, my question is this: Which iPod do you guys (or gals ) suggest for me? What news/rumors have you guys heard regarding any future iPods? Presently I can't decide between the 2 GB and 4 GB iPod Nano. Not only do I want to listen to music but I would like to store some of my photos as well (which I would say scratches out the Shuffle as an option ) and what's this about podcasts? Is 2 GB enough? I was planning on hold out from buying an MP3 player because I find cellphones with built in MP3 abilities a more substancial solution but I can always go that route later. So is 2 GB enough? Any comment/suggestions are most welcome.
