i'm talking more about the touch and nano. the classic will likely stick around for one more generation at most. it's days are numbered.
You're missing his point. He thinks, as do I, that Apple will just continue to sell this generation of Classics without changing them because there will always be people who want that sort of player but there isn't much that can be done to improve it really.
You know what i always hated the most about ipods, that fucking clicking noise it makes when you scroll through the artists, makes me wanna pull my hair out
I know everybody has pointed out you can turn that off, but I'm pretty sure you can't turn off the click it makes when you lock the iPod touch. I know my girlfriend always makes fun of the incredibly loud "kah-lunk" noise it makes whenever I hit that button in my OCD manner of playing music in my car.
Wowww. I should really know better than to post things like that here. xD I forgot people take things way to seriously. My speakers in my room are a Zune dock. They only work with my Zune, because it connects through the USB part and not the headphone jack.
I have a job at Family Video, I was making a joke about my family.
And yes, I'm a fucking idiot, because I don't know things about computers and rip my music WMA because that's what happens automatically in the Zune program.
This has been my tl;dr explanation of my post. Thank you.
Without competition Apple has no reason to continue improving iPods at a quick rate. Competition=good.
umm sony and a couple of other big name electronic corps are still making mp3 players..not like it matters Apple will keep improving there ipod brand till they run out of ideas. And really there was not really battle due to the Zune was fucked before it even hit the ground running.
to me, it really boils down yo your opinion and i'm pretty biased since i've been using zune since 2007, but for one the software is much more lightweight and easier to use than itunes, and they have had the zune pass, which is unlimited downloads for 15 dollars a month something the apple still doesn't have. and the player itself, even though the 160gigs/the first players are like bricks, you were able to send music from your zune to another one, and imo i liked how they layed out the menus more than on the ipod. it was more visual and easier for me to use, but to each his own really, since an ipod isn't complicated either. the only thing i hate about apple is the itunes program honestly
Fair play, I agree it's definitely down to personal preference with these things. Also, I was meaning the old ipod menus, forgot they started the cover flow one, which i dont like at all!
the Zune pass idea would be great for itunes, I would definitely use it
