Full screen video madness

Is this the real Video iPod? MacShrine has a picture of what appears to be a full screen iPod. These photos match up pretty well with the drawings from the US Patent and Trademark Office we posted a few weeks ago detailing a touch sensitive GUI for portable devices. Apple appears to be combining gestures into a form where a user will not have to use any form of clicking or pressing buttons. As it appears currently, the pictures indicate that users will be able to navigate the entire user interface by using gestures exclusively.

Figures that something like this pop up as soon as I pick up a 30GB 5G iPod.

Hmm, I also use my iPod for keeping backups of my photos and important files (but only one backup, I don't rely on it and have them backed up elsewhere). You can configure it to look like a drive on your computer and copy anything you want to it.

That said, I'm still only using 17GB out of my 40GB iPod.

Also, people have used iPods as boot devices.
