Did decide to update to the 4GB, really do like this thing! IMHO it’s what you’re used to and how comfortable your are in navigating brand-specific functions. Ipods are more complicated, too many clicks to get to where you want to go. It took my kids 1 minute to figure the Fuze functions, and me less than an hour, and we all said the same, “this is easy.” Whoever created this interface had the Ipod to use as their benchmark to simplify things, no doubt, but they did a VERY nice job. My son calls my Fuze the Jitterbug of mp3s, and was quick to diss my video screen, but when he got over himself and his brandwashing, he was REALLY digging Rhapsody options vs ITunes! & it works great on the car’s line-in.
Nothing can be more goofy than the Sony Bean I used for two years and still have to think about how to turn on, off, etc. Clunky and non-intuitive, great battery tho. Yet some people find it so easy to use, so go figure!
