So Apple introduced the ipod mini.  It comes in as many
metallic colors as a Cooper and like the BMW related car,
does not include bluetooth for the headphones.  You have
to DOCK IT to sync with your itunes isntead of just
walking into the same room as with most modern day
contacts lists on standard cell phones. Even the
remote is WIRED.

Also, the rumored $79 price tag was WAY off.   For a $50 discount
from the regular ipod, you get smaller form factor, better
colors, and 1/10th the songs.  No news about battery life
comparisons yet. I hope their distributors get a 70% reseller
