Apple Blows It Again

So Apple has information up about their new iPod and I'm kind of pissed. A few years back I'd bought a 20GB iPod, right before the release of the one with the dock. I didn't mind not having the dock, but it quickly became apparent that Apple was going to ignore their older iPods. They got just enough updates to make things run better, but none of the new features like on-the-go playlists.

Fast forward to a month ago when I bought a new 40GB iPod. It doesn't bother me much that they now are $100 less. I've had things like that happen to me all the time. What bugs me is that all the new iPod features announced today are only available for the new iPod. I'm afraid they're going to stop adding new features to this iPod. The even more annoying thing is that many of the new features don't seem to be hardware based features. Features like Multiple on-the-go playlists, tweaking playback speed, and one click shuffling are not things that I'd expect to need new hardware to do. Bah, thank you Apple for screwing me over again.
