Hello, my new 4th gen friend.
We are currently at the "I am flipping the screen around and around and around and around just to watch it do its thing" stage of Ooh Shiny. There are always several Ooh Shiny stages with a new toy. First stage for this was "Oh now doesn't Apple play the Presentation Game well with its packaging! Look, it comes in its own little plastic iPod house!"
Already I have half-filled the 8GB model, thus ensuring that should I ever have a craving to watch drive-in movie intermission trailers while on the T, I am now well and duly empowered to do so.
Technology's a wonderful thing, Sam.
