You think about a rio 4 gig unit for 225$ then say well crap for $25 more I can get a 4 gig mini ipod which is a zillion times nicer and the ear buds alone are worth the difference.
That's true...the additional features of the 4 gig iPod Mini is worth the difference in price between it and the Rio. But that starts with the assumption that any 4 gig mp3 player is worth $225+. I can't justify that in my head. Shoot...I can't even justify 15 gig for $300. I don't think most consumers are going to jump on the bandwagon for any toy that cost more than $150 - $200.

Just look at DVDs. They didn't really start exploding everywhere (where "everywhere" means non-geek homes and stores) 'til people like Apex started releasing sub-$100 DVD players. Now you can get dozens of DVDs, not just at your local electronics superstore, but at Wal-Mart, convenience stores on the corner, gas stations, etc.

Now a sub-$200 iPod that also has the slick iPod interface and enough storage that nobody need scoff...that would sell like hot-cakes.

Um, 2,000,000 iPods SOLD to date. I'm afraid your concepts about consumers is a little off.
