That's a decision you'll have to make. Ebay is usally quite secure, just make sure you don't order from some "wierd" looking advertisement. If a company is selling on ebay, then check out their web page and see if it really exists...that sort of stuff. Should be fine though.

iPod Nano looks like another stupid trick to get consumers to buy. Its smaller! OOOHHHH....AWWWWWWW....look at the smallness! I'm sorry, but its so damn small you feel like your going to break the damn thing. I like to feel the weight in my hands, the mass. That was one thing I liked about the iPod, it felt good to hold. The Nano is just some homosexual product being thrown out there for apple to make a few extra bucks.

It's not - the battery is soldered to the board. As for the Nano being homosexual, I'm not sure if that's possible, but okay.

I'd go for the Rio Carbon. I've heard lots of good things about it. A friend of mine had one, and he loved it. Also, Rio makes a really good mp3 player user interface.
