I think the iPod has had it's day. The iPhone is now the ultimate iPod and can only get better as the new generations are released. Every person that I know that has an iPod wishes they had an iPhone. After having lots of iPods and now an iPhone 3g I could never imagine owning just an iPod touch again. I think in time that iPods will just be things that parents buy for young children. And if you're going to do that.....why not just buy a cheap generic? The iPhone will eventually make the iPod null and void.
