the five gig ipod

cnet has an article about the low-priced (five gig) ipod's extended unavailability. i hope the speculation of it hitting the $199 price point come true. i'd buy one of those lickety-split.

for a while, i was holding out for ogg vorbis support. that would still be great, but i'm not exactly eager to re-rip 5000 songs. and i considered holding out for a forty gig ipod, because it would be nice to have it fit all my music and have room for use as a bit of a backup device, but it would be cheaper to buy a smaller ipod and a fat drive in a firewire enclosure.
