Hmm, people seem to be getting emotional about this story. I wasn't emotional in why I didn't want to buy an 8GB Nano though. Here was my thinking process:
1) Went to the Apple Store. Looked at the 2G Nanos. The silver looked COOL. The red looked COOL. The black... for some reason, did NOT look cool. The color was very flat and lackluster for some reason. I say this as someone who really LIKED the way the 1G Black Nano looked. Wished the black finish on the 2Gs was somehow a bit more glossy, sheen-y, whatever.
2) Didn't much like the price. $249 is steep for a player with a small screen that does not do video. For some reason $199 is a 'magic price point' with flash players with me... maybe with portable players in general.
3) If I was to spend $249, there's the 30GB iPod video. Sorry, but the 'Flash players are a seperate market' just doesn't hold water for me, considering that I happily used a HD-based Mini in my gym for over a year with absolutely no problems.
I guess if the 8GB Nano had a slightly larger screen, did video, and had a 'better black', it might be worth $249. Failing that, its worth only $199 to me. Therefore, I did not buy it.
Does that make me a bad, stupid, or evil person?
