I got my new slimmer, fatter iPod yesterday and so far, so good. I'll put up more comments as I have time to test various features.
However, it struck me that there sure are a lot of pins on that connector at the bottom.
What are they all for?
Even if you count the shield for both the Firewire and the USB as separate pins, you can't get around the fact that there are 28-30 pins (they're very small and my eyesight is going) and most of them are unaccounted for.
