I really want one of the new video iPods; however, I wanted to know if you all think it is dumb to buy one now when they could release a touchscreen iPod soon? Can I connect this current iPod to my LCD TV to watch my TV shows and such? What other features could the "true" video iPod have that could be useful if I am not going to watch a ton of movies? Just occasional TV show on a plane or something.

You can, right now, connect the iPod video to a TV, even the one I'm holding in my hands.

Who knows what else the next big update will bring, though.

There won't be a touchscreen iPod, it's just not practical. Same with the full-screen HDTV video iPod. People make laundry lists of features (FM tuner! Combined XM/Sirius satellite receiver! 100TB storage! Lasers!), but that doesn't mean that those make any sense for the product.

Just get the iPod now, and stop worrying about possible future updates.

I don't see an update happening for at least a few months, if not an entire year.

...I don't want to be the one to tell you this, but I don't think student discounts on iPods are coming back.

Yes.Christmas. Now why didn't i think of that. Where's that bloody list......... Ah there it is Dear Santa Claus also i want an ipod not a pink one though, and yes i have been good this year, well.......... apart from that little incident with the nurse, i promise it was just a misunderstanding, and it wont happen again. Best wishes from thegeriatric.

I used to be undecided.....But now I'm not so sure.
