Geez, my grandma's vacuum cleaner looks cooler than most of the people *I* know! [/b]
I declare "old timey spinning blade lawnmower" coolest looking grandparent-owned household device.

for a lot of my friends who regretfully bought PCs within the past couple of years that have since been destroyed by viruses, the mac mini is a great option.  all they do is invest $500 for an 80GB G4 and hook up their now useless keyboard, mouse and monitor.  kcjones (btw, is your name a celtics reference or the greatful dead?...i'd like to think it's the former) was exactly right...the support and lack of issues (spyware, viruses, etc.) is a big draw.  once you go mac, you never go back.

  i just dont.   and i am assuming i never will.
I was like you, till I owned one. I would never have given full price for one. I got mine 2nd hand. Now I cannot immagine being without it and would rush out and buy a new one the instant my old one died or got lost.

Not at all. But there are a gazillion flash based players out there already. The shuffle is jumping into a full market and all that it is bringing to the table is its itunes integration and name.
 
 I guess Pollard is right though. I didnt think the name that important, but right now, if I wanted a flash based player I would get the shuffle.......

I can get shoutcast streams on my cell phone (treo) with pocket tunes.  It's pretty damn cool.

I did hear the new 3G phones were incredible.  Video and streaming music delivered at DSL speeds to your cell phone (in America, finally!).  Likely to be a part of the Motorola plan for Sprint and Verizon customers. [/b]

It's been available to Treo's and Pocket PC Cell phones for a while, and yes, it's super cool!
 
 These are for your standard size, run of the mill cell phones:

100 on opening day is nothing to write home about.  The place was packed because people were looking for the Mini Mac.  Hell, even I stopped by to see if it was there, and I would never buy one.  BTW, it wasn't there.
