The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Progress marches on: Apple has sprung the newest model of iPods, the 4th Generation, on the market. It's purty.

I'm glad they addressed the most crucial limitation of the 3rd Generation models: The puny battery life. The new editions have 12-hour-power; naturally, in real life, this will vary, but it's bound to be a higher average than previous models.

The latest iteration of Apple's miracle music player is sure making my 1st Generation 5-gigger look downright primitive. And while it's still working well, it's starting to show signs of being oh-so-2001. Doesn't mean I'll be buying a new one anytime soon, though.
