Well, the new 30 Gb iPod has arrived and I’m charging it up as I write. Already it makes my old one look clunky and clumsy. The edges are more curved, the buttons stand out less and it’s quite a lot slimmer. Next step: transfer music and data.
It actually already had a charge when I unpacked it, but I want to be sure it’s fully charged before I take it out today.
The packaging was beautiful — as always. A cardboard cube with two sections. One side contained the iPod and cradle; the other the various peripherals and a slim user guide.
