In the News A few months ago, I wrote an article about comments, in which I said, among others things, that Twitter can never replace comments because not only is it effectively a one-to-one communication channel, Twitter messages are also far too short to foster any form of coherent conversation. Over the weekend, a silly link-bait story illustrated my point perfectly.

Well, removing the local storage is a bit of a annoyance.

As the device has a USB port it would have made sense to allow the user to attach some storage to it. This would keep the price of the device down, while allowing the customer total freedom wether or not to attach storage to it and if so how much.

What? Apple allow customer freedom? I want some of what you're smoking. In all seriousness though, I agree with you that USB storage would have been the best of both worlds. Still, I suppose there's always jailbreaking and running XBMC on it.
