Did anybody notice that Cnet says the Mini ships with Seinheisser earbuds? Are these new ones?

I believe the Apple earbuds have Sennheiser innards.  It’s certainly plausible—- they sound really good compared to the ‘buds included with other devices.

If I read one more comment about the iPod not having FM radio, recording facilities built in, then I’ll run naked in the street screaming. The iPod is a music player plain and simple and I wouldn’t want it any other way. If thjose who want recording facilties built in they should buy a minidisc player but they won’t get the 5,000 songs onto their MD without having a suitcase of discs to carry around.
