Yeah, they're a little... strange looking.
Reminds me way too much of the Playstation Vita. And...I really don't like it.

Agreed. I have an older Nano, and ALMOST got the little square one to use as a watch for the novelty, but passed.

The new Nano is tempting. But, I don't dig the bubble-icons, not that it would be a deal-breaker.
I bet you don't like square burgers.

wow, 16:9

finally matches my phone

I'm eager to see people talking now how 16:9 is perfect for reading because it allows more lines on screen. I'd never been able to convince people about that myself, but now with a bit of Apple magic behind the argument, I think I can do it.
More lines maybe, but more words?

More lines = more words, unless I'm missing something.

It's a wrap.

The only thing I was interested in was the iPod touch and they fragmented it. They're keeping the 2-yo iPt4 with two versions: 16GB for $199 and 32GB for $249. They finally got rid of the paltry 8GB, but two years too late.

Unfortunately, the iPod touch 5 with new features doesn't have a 16GB entry level version. It has two versions: 32GB for $299 and $64GB for $399.

So, no upgrade for me. The iPt4 works great for my needs.

I don't discriminate when it comes to charred mammal flesh.

Fruit, however... I have picky tastes.

Same for me, but I wasn't in the market anyway. I probably won't upgrade my Touch unless it dies and maybe not even then.

What an odd way to phrase it: minor update except for... 7 things integral to a smartphone.

Out of curiosity, what would you have liked to see? What would have blown your mind?

4:3 is wider when holding the 16:9 screen lengthwise.
