How many iPods is too many?

You may think it's strange that I own eight iPods, but this MSNBC story tells me I'm not alone in thinking that there's no such thing as "too many iPods." As the story points out, different iPods are better suited for different purposes - much like shoes. My iPod (video) is more useful to me as a...
