We like the Gigabeats, this year. In fact, some of our colleagues have whispered that the Gigabeat S is their favorite player of the year. Really!

So this bigger, better, Gigabeat V, with its 30GB hard drive, and 3.5-inch screen looks awesome...but also familiar. HEY WAIT A MINUTE! You're just like those chunky Portable Media Center thingies that no one bought 2 years ago! Look at you, trying to sneak into our hearts like that silly land shark. Hmmm...it does have 25/8 hours of battery life for audio/video...Candygram? Oh alright.

DISCUSSION

werk,

I think the author is trying to emphasize the "chunky" part over the PMC part.

What I think is even funny is, that if you follow their chunky PMC link, it will take you to a May 30th, 2006 Gizmodo post of the same item.
