    I'm one of the people who drained the 20 GB supply as of today. The synchronization of the iPod and iTunes is awesome; I love being able to rate songs on the iPod. Also got the iTrip so I can listen in my car.

    I bought the 40gb model with the dock. I agree it is amazing. Currently have it plugged in through an aux port in my car stereo and then when I set it in the dock it has a connector to connect into my stereo at home.

      I just got my iPod 20GB last week.

      It's more awesome then I thought it was.

      What I love most is how iTunes and iPod work together, how any changes are just automatically made to your iPod. It amazes me how easily this works, and how efficient it is.

      I still have plenty more CDs to put on my iPod, haven't had the time as of late yet. (Probably too lazy)

        I was in the local Costco today and they had about 100 of the 20GB iPods on the floor. However they are the HP co-branded ones but don't think that should matter. The local Target had them yesterday as did Radio Shack, not sure about today.

          If you have a reasonable car, and you want to get a really awsome setup for your ipod, check out http://www.dension.com/main.php?pageid=50&topid=42

          It isnt out here, but its close to what my setup is currently, and the sound quality increases heaps when using a digital signal over radio waves.

          At the moment i use the belkin car charger with the audio out plugging into the AUX on my headunit.

              My iPod mini should arrive today

              Iam truly excited, one heard so much about the iPod and I want to see if it's true. Iam a bit scared mine could be broken though It happens to a lot of iPods (low battery or stuff like that).
              That's the end of that!

                    Probably $200 (Q1 2005 as you likely know is the prediction). I would have waited but I got the academic discount for the current 20 GB and I do want to have my whole collection with me. Also I'm doubtful as to whether Apple would support removable Flash cards (SD or such) or build it in.

                    Anyway, my review of the iPod 20 GB/Dock/iTrip:

                    Good:
                    • Excellent UI
                    • On-the-go song rating
                    • Simple controls
                    • Surprisingly good earbuds with good bass
                    • iTrip works very nicely in the Washington DC/Baltimore area, although the closest to a city I've gotten is Baltimore by about 2 miles.
                    • Charges right over Firewire with no AC adapter
                    • Excellent synchronization with iTunes, no effort required
                    • Dock is heavy and solid
                    • Thin
                    • Came preformatted for Windows instead of Mac
                    • Most fun to unpack box ever (it really is like origami)

                    Not as good:
                    • Chromed back is a major fingerprint magnet
                    • Slightly heavier than I'd wanted
                    • Foam padding for earbuds covers the L/R text
                    • Earbuds tangle up constantly (but then again, all earbuds do)
                    • File transfers are fast but the initial connection time to iTunes is something like 30 seconds
                    • Sometimes thinks it's always connected and needs a manual disconnect via Safely Remove Hardware
                    • Scrollpad can get tedious after a bit (especially with Solitaire)
                    • Can't sort songs by Filename that I can tell (a lot of my songs miss the ID3 tag but are properly named with Artist - Song Name.mp3)
                    • No true support for Smart Playlists (only accurate at the time of synchronization; my most played playlist is rating-based and I rate some songs on the iPod

                      I much prefer the second generation iPod to the third generation in terms of design .

                        My 4,5 generation has not yet arrived.. It's been more than a week now

                        What do you think of this little application that allows you to install Linux on any iPod (not the iPod mini as far as I know)

                        -> http://sourceforge.net/projects/ipodlinux/
                        That's the end of that!

                          Why would anyone want to do that?

                              Well there are advantages, the main one being you are no longer "locked in" into Apple's software. So you can use your own or third party software for downloading/copying/transferring of files etc.

                              For example some people would not like every time you get a song from iTunes they add it to the profile thay have of you, so they can 'better' server you advertisements. Not saying they do this, I don't know, but with open source software you know for 100% what and what its not doing.
