After spending two days with my new PowerBook 17-Inch I am finally starting to get used to it.

Over at The Register there is an article about the new forthcoming iPod:

The new model, to be offered in 15GB and 30GB incarnations, not only sports a redesigned control system that adds QuickTime Player-style, fast forward, and track skip (forward and backward) buttons, removing them from around the scroll wheel, but will ship with a music transfer/recharge cradle.
