iPod broke...

My trusty six year old iPod decided that the hard drive should stop making music, and instead make "plopping" noises.

So?

  • Shuffle Probably all the music I need. I listen to only a little bit at any time, and though this device is 1gig and I need 8gig for my average collection of traveling music, this would be good enough.

  • Nano Tiny screen, but it can hold everything that my last iPod was holding. I am pretty sure I would go blind trying to look at the screen.

  • Classic Pointless. Too much data, and still a tiny screen.

  • Touch The software is broken, or half assed. Take your pick. It is crippled compared to the iPhone, and while the video would be nice, I would stay constantly annoyed at the half assed implementation. They should at least get the mail client working (and open up the SDK for it). I wonder if I could read books on it...

    I don't want to use my cell phone, my Treo is dieing enough as is.

    Apple has MacWorld next week... I shall wait...

    The nano screen is surprisingly good -- easier to read than the text in this textarea at the moment, actually, which is unusually tiny, for some reason. I listen to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks, so the screen is important to me. Fiddle with one in an Apple store, or if you know someone who has one.

    Seconded with the current nano, I have the first edition, and I bought a current one for my boyfriend for christmas. It's really bright, and the fonts are pretty good. You can also do the album cover song selection stuff if you really don't feel like reading.

    this is my experience too; my sister has the new nano, and the screen is nice and crisp and viewable, better than my 30GB video ipod.
