Probably because they annoucned the video ipod yesterday.

I just bought my wife an ipod photo a couple of weeks ago. It's a 20 gig. The new video ipod is 30 gig for the same price

I have her going to the store right now to exchange it or get her money back. We have 21 days to return and today is day number 20!

Are you guys ready for VAP Videos?!

Thanks!

You're going to love Episode 4. We got a chance to chat with Kevin Tetz of DIY's Classic Rides show about the '70 Overlander they restored.

It was a lot of fun to talk with Kevin and I think you will enjoy that episode. It comes out 10/27!

Thanks for listening!
