By them not doing this, they are in breach of contract. Where is there burdon of proof that they shipped them. They did not ship them wit...

The thing that really sucks is I think they are trying to prevent people from scalping them. Hello, I ordered 2 tickets and they are in the pavillion. Why in the world if I was a scalper would I have them sent to a residential address also. I need the tickets to get to my friends out of state so we ...

Do what I did. Get both. I have a 4GB nano for running around and such and an 80 gb for movies and all my cd's. Currently have about 5K songs on it. My son has a shuffle and a 30gb video. Just got my wife an 80gb classic and my daughter has a 2 gb nano and a 4gb nano video.
Guess we love our Ipods.
