DesignTechnica takes a good look at the iPod Video. While they may not get to the point of tossing it out of a moving vehicle, but they definately give it a serious examination.
"So what makes the new iPod better than previous versions? Well for starters it includes a larger
2.5-inch QVGA color screen and is capable of video playback. The player is slimmer as well,
measuring in at less than half an inch thick — that's 45 percent slimmer than the previous model.
Despite its thin size, Apple has added a larger battery to this years model which promises five
more hours of playback when compared to last years. That means up to 20 hours of total audio play
time before this baby runs out of juice. Available in 30GB and 60GB flavors, you can store up to
150 hours of video, 15,000 songs, and up to 25,000 photos (all on the 60GB version) — that's a lot
of media. Included with the new iPod is a set of ear buds, the latest iTunes (version 6) and a USB
cable for charging and syncing the iPod with your PC."
