    I was really looking forward to buying an iPod, but of course, since the XBOX 2 isn't scheduled to come out until late 2006, Apple might come out with some rivalry.

    Apple should come out with a gaming system. That'd own.

    But that sounds cool. Too bad I'll be wasting all my cash on a PS3 to buy one.

    Apple makes crappy hardware, in my opinion. Their structural success is in the iPod and Mac's software. I was thinking, and I remember at E3 last year that Microsoft was talking about released an external hardware product similar to the XBOX next year, news to be announced by this summer. Maybe this could be it?

    There are some exceptions, like the G4 for example, it and the iPod are probably the best things that every happened to Apple. The faults are in Apple's CPU, they're low-quality and they've seemed to fail quite often.

    So, you hook up an Ipod to be a hard drive for an XBox 2. That's really weird, but cool.

    Apple is not my favorite company, but their Ipods are definately good. Their computers on the other hand...

    They claimed they have the fastest processor when they really don't. Macs are only good for beginners, they used to hold the upper hand in video editing but that's debatable anymore.

    PC > Mac

    I just don't like the setup of macs. They are good for video editing but still...PCs are better.

    Sort of...except a Microsoft version of the iPod, and probably cheaper than the iPod. Just be aware that this is still a rumor, and it might not be true.

    Apple makes awesome products. They're just not as user friendly (like linux). Almost every major corporation uses Apple.

    I think microsoft is too late for ot (if it's true)
    The iPod is the best selling mp3 player in the world and with the iPod mini it's even getting better. :)
    And I surely want to buy an xbox 2 for that kind off mp3 player.
