Or maybe an iTouch - do those do video? The website was confusing on that point... I"m thinking of maybe putting one on my wish list this year. There's nothing else on there so one big gift seems ok to me.... but I can't really see what the benefits of the Mino vs. Ultra are - both come in HD, but only one has battery capability, maybe it is that?
And does the iTouch even record video? It says "video capability" but is that to to watch/play or to take? I know the new Nano does. An iTouch might be nice since we don't have an iPod... kill two birds with one stone sort of thing.
