^ Unless SONY packages there EX71's (or 75's) I would not consider the included ear plugs a selling point, just go with the specs of the player and add the other ear plugs (which btw will cost about eur 50 also :) )

I might be going for a new player also, this looks nice but I need more space... a 160GB iPod would fit but I don't want iTunes on my system.

What about Zune? I got a 80GB version and so far it's good. The problem I have is that some features are still un-useable in Canada so that killed the Zune

No Zune where I live, I have a 60GB Creative Zen (and a COWON Q5W 40GB) but its getting full, need MORE SPACE :)
(another reason not to buy a iPod is: it can't play WMV's, which is half of my collection)

I also do not like the idea of having to swap-out (micro)SD's, I like to search while the previous songs is still playing and then add them to the current play-list.

Edit: Looks like I'm going for a Archos 605 160GB:


Not the 705, this is for audio.

Been on the market for a new watch, and found this.

Too bad it's only a concept :( But it's so cool and useless!

Someone needs to make it now!

I know jackshit when it comes to using SLRs but have thought about getting one.
The bulkiness was always a drawback and this new model by Panasonic is nice and compact.
However, I have 2 concerns.
One is that even though the camera itself is small, aren't most good quality lenses 1-2x the size of the camera?  So with a decent lens attached, the combination will still be a bulky summabitch.
2ndly, it seems this Lumix SLR uses the LCD for imaging.  My understanding was that with digital SLRs, one of the main benefits was that you use the viewfinder and can take shots any time you want with no bootup time.  With the DMC G1, it appears you have to wait for the camera to turn on b4 you can start shooting. (but maybe I'm wrong).
Still it's a camera i have to consider if I want to upgrade to an SLR so thanks for the 411.

I actually have very little experience with SLRs myself. But I love the quality and the ability to use large lenses as I've found it annoying when I see the perfect thing to take pic of, but my point & shoot just couldn't capture it like I wanted to.

I have done a bit of research and I'll try to answer a couple of your questions.

Anyway, the thing with the G1, it also uses smaller lenses too so you have to get lenses made for it(atleast until other companies start to adopt the micro four thirds standard) or you have the choice of getting a four thirds adapter which uses slightly smaller than standard lenses but a little bigger than the G1's. Of course it'll still be a whole lot bigger than your point & shoot, but that's the price you pay for quality.

I've never actually used a DSLR other than trying it at the store, but I thought you would still have to turn on the camera to take any pics. All I knew was that the advantage of the viewfinder was that it didn't use any power unlike an LCD and you saw exactly of what you're taking a picture of. One of my concerns about this camera was the LCD viewfinder, but it seems to be using some special kind of LCD with better picture quality than normal LCDs. As for bootup, DSLRs boot up in like a second or less so I don't think there's much to worry about there other than the slight power use.

Here's a sort of review of a pre-production model with tons of info on it (probably just about everything you'd want to know) http://www.dpreview.com/Previews/PanasonicG1/
