New iPods -- I WANT!
If you haven't heard, Apple is coming out with a new iPod.. And I definately want one (in case anyone has idears of a Christmas gift to get me! ). The idea of a small viewable screen to show photos that you store is great. I've used my existing iPod in this fashion -- storing over 600 pictures plus AVI files -- while doing a bike tour. Added to that the space -- over 60GB! -- and given that 1 GB == roughly 1 day, there'd be enough room for music and pictures and other stuff.

You know MsMittens, that you can get a small generater that runs on your spinning wheels? Then you could mount a laptop on your handlebars and carry a backpack with a satilite uplink/downlink in it and wear a hat with the parabolic on it. Of course you would have to keep your head aligned with whatever satilite you are using.
The new ipod does sound like a good idea. Being able to preview what photos you are storing, and to have them accessable while touring would allow you to share them with others with out having a computer to download them to.

I'd wait a while on it. Isn't it like $500. The first time they came out with the 5gb players I got one for lke $400 and now I feel so jipped.
