The iRiver has finally died, or feels like it. Time to work out where to go next. There are lots of buying guides for alternatives. Question is a smaller lighter flash player the way to go?

So it looks like a toss up between the gen 5.5 iPod or the Creative Zen Vision:M. Not having an iPod is always good, but the iPod is so much easier to use. However, there are new iPods out in a week, so time to hold back, I think.
