Portable video?

Apple announced a video iPod yesterday. C’mon now. Who wants portable video? Sure, the company has the best portable MP3 around by far, but this move is just cocky and presumptuous.

Even more convincing, CNN ran a poll today asking if people would buy an iPod for video. An astounding 82% said they would not. Did Apple do any market research? It’s looks like they didn’t. And who was buying iPods for photos? No one.
