Have you (or anyone else) actually used the iPod/Card Reader to store 
images yet? I thought about doing this, but read reviews that pointed 
out it takes almost 30 min. to transfer a full 512mb card to the iPod 
(severely taxing the iPod battery in the process). Although the 
connection is via a firewire cable, the transfer is not done at 
firewire speeds. I suppose that if you're only dealing with small 
numbers of jpegs the slow speed would not be a hinderance, but if you 
shot a large number of jpegs or even a moderate number of RAW files, 
you could be in for a long wait to free up your memory cards again.
