The iPod nano is leading the way in the change from hard drive-based to flash-based MP3 players, according to Billboard. “We don’t look at it from a standpoint of hard drive and flash,” says Stan Ng, director of iPod product marketing. “We try to look at the whole lineup to bring a lot of new customers in.”

Apple is siding with a record label group in an ongoing dispute over iTunes royalties, reports Macworld UK.

An iPod nano owner has comically shown a way to connect a 200GB ATA hard drive to the nano.

Uncyclopedia, the ‘publisher’ of the 200GB nano hack, is a satire of Wikipedia (compare logos and front pages) with mostly made-up content. While it’s probably possible to make the iPod nano interface with a real ATA drive, it would seem hard to fit the extra card in there with the nano’s exceptionally small margins.

Additionally, most of the pictures look doctored. (The ones that aren’t are taken from a nano ‘autopsy’ by a japanese site.)

Totally Fake,
notice it starts with a black nano and ends up with a white nano. Also the White nano is Photoshoped in from apples stock picures (look at the image on the Screen)

Totally Fake

Um, it might help if you look up what ‘satire’ means, at least before posting and illuminating us with your, uh…um, illuminations.

Hilarious…but why settle for only 200GB? That’s SO last year. I think a nice, friendly 400GB drive would’ve have been SO much sweeter.

Love that 6 sec. of battery life, too! Oh the twisted things people will do for a laugh…
