First, let me explain how I use my PSP. I don’t play games on my PSP or any of my gadgets for that matter. (No offense to the gamers out there.) When I commute, I listen to music. When I travel, I watch movies. And when I hang out in a coffee shop I surf the web (when I don’t feel like busting out my PowerBook). Having the ability to show images is fun, too, but I typically just use the picture functionality to view maps or show off some of my photography.
To summarize my user habits, I use my portable device to listen, watch and surf. The new iPod falls short in one category and unfortunately, it’s a big one for me; surfing the web. Maybe this isn’t a big deal for others, but I’m trying to cover all aspects of these two devices.

apple_firewire_logo.gifI am simply shocked and amazed that Apple has abandoned FireWire on the just-announced fifth generation iPods with video. I understand why there’s no FireWire on the iPod shuffle (no port) and even why it’s off the nano (tiny form-factor, lower cost) but why in blazes did Apple leave FireWire off the new video iPod?
