NBC=Greedy pricks!!
 
I could barely believe my ears when I heard this on Buzz out loud.
You've got to read this story, NBC wanted a share of the iPods profits!!
Many of you may have heard that NBC pulled all their shows off iTunes a while back when they couldn't reach an agreement, if I was Steve Jobs I would have laughed them out of my office.

"Apple sold millions of dollars worth of hardware off the back of our content and made a lot of money," Zucker reportedly told The New Yorker's Ken Auletta during a benefit for former football powerhouse Syracuse University. "They did not want to share in what they were making off the hardware or allow us to adjust pricing."
This is the president of a company that made 16 BILLION Dollars profit last year saying this!

Can you imagine the nerve of this guy!?
Now I'm no Apple fanboy, I don't own any Apple products (yet) but this is just beyond belief.

Nope, no Mac for me, I had an Apple 2 back in the day but dumped it when all the good games started coming out on PC, the only Apple product I'm looking at is an iPod after the Xmas price drop.

I'm not on the Apple bandwagon either, but I would like a portable player that goes from house to car with a large hard drive to hold most of my music. A portable music server! Video is not much of a concern for me because of the poor quality. Are any options available besides the ipod?

Any suggestions would be great. I would rather not go with Apple because they are money hungry control freaks as well.
