    We'll need a screen

    At those sizes our music will be too difficult to navigate.

    Silly MacNN

    All this ultimately came from Digitimes, who has yet to get a single rumor right. Nevermind the cost of such flash memory (have you priced 4GB flash memory lately?). Doesn't even pass the smell test.

    silly

    512 MB and 1 GB have worked well and there is no need to change.

    There may well be, however, a SUPER THIN (1/3 the thickness of current mini) iPod CARD as the 4/6GB minis' HD are replaced by flash.

    Your source?

    The jump to iPodNN (your sister site) gives you the same text with no real source at all for the info. Not inspiring, guys.

    A bigger flash-pod would be great if they finally give us a screen.

    Yeah, but

    who would by a 4GB iPod shuffle when for the same price, you could get a mini, with a screen, better hard disk support, ability to use 3rd-party products, etc?

    agree...need a screen

    It would be to difficult to navigate. My biggest request is still an FM tuner though. Sigh

    re: yeah, but

    The hard drive and size are key problems with the mini vs. shuffle. For people who don't ever, ever mess with their controls, and just let the music play, the shuffle is by far the better choice. Who cares if it doesn't have a calendar or brickout. Those are just gimmicks anyway. These shuffles weigh nothing, and they're basically indestructible.

    WTF Macnn editors?

    Lame news. The source is unreliable; unworthy of a discussion.
