They just cant get their priorities right these days...

How can having an Ipod be better then getting smashed and then thinking you are listening to an Ipod?

That's absolutely shocking! I don't even own an i-pod! And my fridge is FULL of tasty beers! And I'm an 18 year old student.

Shame on them... Values going out the window. I blame those snazzy i-pod ads on tv. When was the last time you saw a good beer advert? (Aside from the one with the perfect apartment with the sexy lady room-mates and a view of the footy [thumbsup] )

I'd rather have a little ear damage than fall out of a window in a drunken stupor.

These kids only think that iPods are cooler than beer because they're idiot college kids who haven't discovered real beer yet.

(Hint: if light can penetrate it, it's not real beer.)

Beer ? Yuck.
I don't have an ipod nor have I had an MP3 player. I'm still waiting on my jog-proof CD player!

I'm glad I'm not the only person that thinks that beer tastes nasty :-) Oddly I'm not keen on the UI of the iPod either -- I think that pressing left on the wheel should go to the parent of the active menu.

What I dream of (Oh this would be the bestest thing in the world. Well, second to sex...) is a remake of the Psion Revo, but with a Li-ion cell, colour screen (maybe bump up the res a bit given that we've improved the contrast now), improved keyboard and wireless Internet. Not Bluetooth, actual WiFi, so you can surf the Net from it. Connectivity via external USB2 (the semi-internal serial slot is a nuisance).

This may require dimensional transcedence, but maybe a mini-SD slot and sound out jack.

It would just be the coolest real pocket computer around (it's already a pre-emptive microkernel OS even now). No idea what OS to use though, maybe the latest Symbian release, if they had any sort of half-decent UI. Might have to go Linux/Qtopia, but if it were to also run Cy/VOS and The MicroGUI that would be pure heaven. Something like this or this but in colour.

Absolutely not required: cell phone, camera :>
