This is a catchcry in our office at the moment, so i laughed my arse off at today's comic, very relevant.

Good work guys!

I enjoy seeing the iPod suffer. It deserves it since it doesn't include an FM radio. Why can't they add an FM radio to the iPod damnit?

Oh, and the new phone sucks, so I understood. Why is it limited to 100 songs? Cheap bastards.

I have portable music players specifically because I don't usually listen to the radio, and they're much more convenient than carrying a bunch of CDs around.

I have two radio stations set: public radio for news and the local college station for music (and I haven't even got the college station programmed in right now since I replaced my car's battery). However, the radio is part of the head unit, which if nothing else does a good job of filling the ugly hole in the dashboard. [Smile]

For me, radios in portable music players are features of no value. The only radio shows I listen to are available as downloads anyway.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I got 'em all beat! This thing in my head keeps playing music. It's just inside my head and it can play completely random songs and sometimes the same song will play in my head for like ... 3 days.

Right now its playing Radiate by Fleming and John

so fill me in.... I haven't seen a newspaper for two weeks. What's this about an iPod nano? Is it a really tiny iPod? Smaller even than the Shuffle? How many songs does it hold? Why should I want to buy one?

It's a really small thin MP3 player. Has a colour screen, unlike the Shuffle. It's flash based (like the Shuffle), so it can be used for jogging,etc. Plenty of details here

You must be on a widescreen .. the 4:3 ratio of 1900 is 1440.

I'm on an LCD. 1280x1024 is all I can do on it.

I have a dream...

... that one day, automobile manufacturers will put stereos with auxiliary input jacks in their cars. Then we won't have to buy external FM transmitters for our Ogg players.

(iPod? What's that? Oh, yeah... something that doesn't play Oggs. Therefore it's useless. Next!)
