I don't know. I stopped listening to the radio years ago for music, and I'm not a student so I can't think of anything I really need to record. I, personally, would not pay extra for either of those features. What Apple has to do is figure out whether there are more customers like you, or more like me out there. Or whether there are enough of both to create two lines.
Since podcasts emerged i entirely ceased to listen to radio, too.
Not to say, that i was a big radio listener previously. But now even more
there is really no need for radio (in its current state, at least for me.)
I believe that the success of the current iPod line is based on
its simplicity. If you want to ad some more features, than there
is a huge field of 3rd party deliverers.
Then again, I still haven't upgraded to the video iPod because I don't care about video either. So it's quite possible I'm just out of touch culturally.
Don't worry, i guess you just represent the second part of customers,
who appreciate simplicity, no? I do.
Btw, i have upgraded to Video iPod, guess what, i was so excited,
such a compelling feature, but actually i don't use it.
