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...

    ipods are designed to die after a few years
    My 20 gb one was around 5 yrs old then one day it just didn't boot , I think I left it in the sun too long because now it boots but the screen is black the new one I got I keep it in a beer koozies so the sunlight won't screw up the screen this time, I should get a case for it but the good ones are too bulky

    I think their inst really any good solution to portable music right now
    zune is total crap too
