    I saw it on techtv today and i love how it looks and the new features. And when the back light is turned on the play,pause,menu buttons turn red. Its off the hook. And the 30gb can hold 7500 songs in it. What’s good about the docking port to me is that you can have either USB2.0 or Firewire 400 or 800. I have windows but i’ll like to have firewire800.
