Looking forward to it!
I agree with you about Apple's polish: I've said it before, they make absolutely gorgeous - both in the aesthetic and the overall heft/quality sense - stuff.
I pre-ordered an Archos 43 IT for myself (she-who-must-be-obeyed doesn't know; I am living DANGEROUSLY) and I'm keen to compare it to the iPod Touch... Might just be able to generate some material for the kewlaid site at that point. For now, my iBook running Tiger is gathering dust. Even if I were using it, it's so out of date it wouldn't be fair to start lambasting Apple for it (ie hardware is from 2001 and OS from 2005).
