I have a new iPod to replace the one I submerged in water a few weeks ago. For a moment I thought that the insurance company had tracked down a 40G monochrome model to replace the one I killed, but I was pleasantly surprised that, evidently, they hadn't:

My old 40GB monochrome iPod shipped with a desktop cradle, as well as a FireWire cable. These are now accessories that you can purchase separately—I think this is also lame. Of course, it doesn't affect me, because I have those accessories from my old iPod. But I'd be pretty disappointed to have to go out and buy them separately if I'd just spent the $A 600 to buy a new 60GB colour iPod.
