As it happens, though, the lack of focus on OMG FEATURES!!! is the precise reason why the iPod does so well. But then, this is a periodical for Our Sort, not, you know, Ordinaries. We want to break our consumer electronics, dammit. It's what we do.

The iPod does so well because it is very, very flashy. I tried out someone's iPod Video a few weeks ago and was taken aback by all the eye/ear candy. The ironic thing, though, is that for all the bling it really is a feature-poor device.
