There was a lot of disappointment from people about Apple's iPod announcement last week, though the tide has been turning a bit since then. After the initial bunch of "that's all?" articles that came out, there were a bunch that said, "hey, you know, this actually does have some cool features". However, the one thing not many people can get over is the idea of spending $400 for a music player they can jog with. Many stores are saying they don't see much demand for the new iPod. Sure, there are some MacFaithfuls who are lining up, but they're not breaking down the doors. The real question is whether or not any non-Apple devotees will be looking to buy - and there doesn't seem to be much movement on that front. I still think that the longer people wait, the cheaper the iPod will get, and the more copycat, almost-as-good devices will come out.
