    “USB 2.0 is faster than firewire”

    People repeat this as gosepl, mainly because Intel’s marketing repeats the 480Mbps raw of USB 2 vs the 400 Mbps raw of FW400.

    However, in the real world the transfers take place using frames, and FW’s asynchronous bus control and variable framing of data packets means that if you time actual reality-based transfers, FW400 is around 20-30% higher throughput than USB2.

    Welcome to the desert of the real, where marketing speak meets its match.

    And of course, there is also FW800, which is seriously fast and only bested by SATA and PCI-E x16.

    What does “improved power management” mean? Does it actually increase battery life?

    Hey, did Sony give you a new PS2 when you bought your PS1 right before the PS2 was announced? Don’t think so. And they didn’t give you a download to be able to play dvds in ur PS1. When you bought a $150 cell phone, did they give you a free new one when camera phones were intoduced? Did Ford take back your “old” F-150 when the “New” F-150 was introduced? Did Hitachi let you trade your VCR for a new DVD player when they were introduced? If you think you’ll never get screwed by a company just because it’s not Apple, your wrong! 2 weeks after I got my hp pavilian, they had one for the same price, with a DVD+RW drive included and a free 17” Flat-panel monitor upgrade. A company needs to stay alive! Sorry, but every company needs to “Screw the coustomers” to stay alive!

    Have had zero issues with my Ipod(s)... I love my 40GB, I wish everything was as reliable and user friendly as this.

    I have had a good play with the 4G ipod. Some of the features like better On-The-Go playlist and/or Shuffle on the main menu, are not hardware dependant. The least Apple could do is integrate such minor software upgrades to the other ipods. I understand that the 4G is a new Ipod and they are selling point features BUT I spent a lot of money on my 3G Ipod and I expect something more than nothing.
