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.

Fortunately the cradle doesn’t replace the iPod’s 1394 port, but provides a more consumer-friendly way of sitting the iPod on your desktop. It also provides a USB 2.0 connection for Windows users.

I work at a Target in Orlando, FL and our stock of iPods just went on 15 percent clearance. They will eventually drop to 30 percent off if any are left in a few weeks. It appears that Dell did not renew their reseller agreement it seems that Target may not as well. Great opportunity for anyone in the market for an iPod.
