Where on that site did you see a mention of an iPod FM receiver? I scanned over it and didn't see anything. If it's true, I'd like to read what is being said about that, as it will help me in a discussion I was having the other day with someone regarding that very topic.

until they announce a retail version of OS X that officially supports my x86 box, Apple will get no love from me. (except for my ipod, which is badass)

Something tells me that Kevin Rose's rumours are ALWAYS right...(because they are)

Re: Some Macworld previews....and release rumours...

the new MacBooks are pretty nice.

i think they should've updated the ibooks/macmini before the imac. the imac/powermac had pretty respectable upgrades last fall.

nothing else really interested me that much.

if someone wants to make it big now, they'll have to come up with a version of WINE to run under OS X, which would give very little reason to have to run a windows machine (sans gaming). it'll finally be nice to see microsoft get some decent competition for OSes.

Re: Some Macworld previews....and release rumours...

Thanks for bringing this up, Frosty. I came across this link just a little bit ago: http://engadget.com/2006/01/10/apple...s-fm-to-ipods/

Man, this is vindication for me. Just yesterday I was arguing with a couple of poeple on another message board about iPods and FM receivers, saying that it would be a good thing if the iPod had radio capabilities. One person replied with this:

Quote:
Apple's design philosophy cuts out the crap that almost nobody wants. And almost nobody wants an FM tuner when they have hundreds/thousands of songs they like available with no commercials. If they added a tuner, that would require a bunch of extra menus, making the iPod just a little more complicated to use. And when you keep adding every little thing that some small percentage of the population wants, you end up with a unusable piece of junk.
Some people think they know it all.
