iPod broke...

« previous entry | next entry »

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...

    Classic pointless? Too much data? For me, it's far more convenient to have my entire music collection with me. For one thing, I'll never know what I'm in the mood for tomorrow or the day after. I don't have time to wade through my collection trying to come up with a tiny subset. So, you can pry my 80GB classic from my cold dead hands ;-)

    My music collection is around 300 gigs :)

    Smaller devices keep just my current playlists.

    Ah. You didn't mention that. Obviously, the classic won't fit your needs ;-)

    I collect pretty much anything I can find for music (aka the larger library is better theory).

    Much of it I am not all that fond of actually, but some others who listen to my music collection are :)
