LOL....that is pretty funny.

I'm debating whether I want to bother upgrading this new 20Gb HD...only
because it is so easy and fast to move files from a PC archive HD. 20GB's
seems like so many songs...especially since I used 6GB model happily for 2
years. I do want to find 4 of those those 2300 mah batteries though.
