Sitting watch Wenty Uniting playing football last weekend, I was comparing stuff on the iPod with Tim Markham. His 30GB Video iPod had far less songs on it, and I seemed to have most of them covered. A thought struck me about a video iPod - the video function would be virtually useless in my life.
I use my iPod mainly whilst walking or driving in the car. While walking it sits in my back pocket, and when driving it's on the floor. In neither place would I have the ability to watch the screen. If I was watching a DVD, then I'd do so on the player at home with a proper television. I can see the benefit for travellers on the train but that's about it.
Also, the chap who's been through the desert on a horse with no name - what happens if he loses the horse? How does he call it back again? I wonder.
