I recently purchased one of those nice shiny iSnots. I found out what a mistake
that was when I discovered it wouldn't play nearly as loud as my cheapo Korean
player nor could I select "Custom" equalizer to avoid digital (!) clipping
which destroyed the audio. Korea: no problemo. Couldn't believe the crappy job
Job's mob did on the firmware. So I sold it on at a massive loss to some poor
sod who couldn't discern distortion even if it hit him squarely in the face
("Can I put my CDs on this thing?" OMFG...)

But no, as stated above, don't get your hopes too high. As it is purchasing a
G2 nano would be a bad idea. Until Samsung's encryption is reverse engineered
no G2 nano rockbox :-( (also no second sale for Apple...).
