Follow-up on my iPod Rant

After my rant a few days ago about the quality of new-fangled electronic gizmos I got various emails. Most interesting was this link to Walt Mossberg's comments about the scratching of the iPod nano's, where he says:

"If I were reviewing the nano today, I would still call it "the best combination of beauty and functionality of any music player I've tested," as I did in my review. But I would include a strong, prominent, warning that it scratches too easily in normal usage. This is a real downside to an otherwise excellent product." (from Mossberg's Mailbox)

I can't claim that my rant caused Walt to write this clarification, but it sure is timely. I haven't bought my nano yet, so I am going to wait, at least for a few weeks, to see what happens.

One of the emails also pointed me to this David Pogue Video commentary on the nano. Funny.
