It’s out. It plays video. It’s bigger than the music only version which means it’s not going to fit any of the accessories I currently own without some rigged up adaptor. So my speakers will be no good before they wear out.

And Jobs has screwed himself again by demanding money from the people who make all those accessories. He learned nothing in the 80s and 90s…nothing.

I won’t buy one until my current one absolutely can’t be fixed because I want a music player…not a video player. Unless of course Suicide Girls (NSFW) decide to do Video Podcasts and then I’ll think about it. And no, I don’t make anything by mentioning Suicide Girls, I’m just a fan.

UPDATE: Of course, if I can burn a DVD of the downloaded videos as easily as I can burn a playlist of tunes to a CD, then we’re talking another thing altogether, but it seems like that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

UPDATE 2: In the comments SteveH points out that while the screen is wider, the Pod itself is not…I looked closer at the specs and…insert Emilie Latella voice here…Nevermind. So…more disk space, color screen, same price. Kinda cool.
