You gotta get it to get it

There's been much hoopla about the new video iPod. So many underestimated (or completely overlooked) the iPod's initial impact, it seems now everyone is staking out ground on this new innovation. Depending on who you read, Apple's latest marvel of portable entertainment is either fantastic or folly.

Just as you wouldn't judge someone who's shoes you haven't walked in, you shouldn't judge the iPod until you hold it in your hands. Glimpses of the future are fleeting because it arrives so quickly. Remember your first VCR? Laptop? DVD recorder? TiVO? Now the iPod with video opens a small (2.5 inches) window into an on-demand world that's coming quick.

Even if you don't buy one, go touch one. Watch a video and picture the possibilities before someone you compete with does.
