Seems like it would improve the performance and demand for them.

Reply 3 of 5 4fx Posts: 258member November 15, 2001 2:26AM Thats nice and all for marketing. But I couldnt care. Apple has allowed for firmware upgrade for the iPod, so why not upgrade it to mp3pro so you could fit even more songs on with better quality?
