    Don't use an iPod...never really wanted to.

    Like some other people I have a phone what does the same job already. Plus having seen what my brother has to put up with regarding iTunes, I'll take my phone any day.

    yes but up until 4-5 years ago, your phone didn't have the ability/capacity to play and store your mp3s.

    Now I need to go dust off my Sony VAIO VGF-AP1L for old time sake.

    If I remember correctly I've owned 6 iPods: 2G iPod classic, 3G iPod classic (which was stolen), 2G iPod shuffle, the Fatty iPod Nano and 2 iPods Touch (3G and 4G).

    And I maybe buying the latest nano with a wristband for jogging.

    I didn't read every post, but can someone tell me what,if anything the "ipod" stands for? Is it an acronym? TIA:blush::confused:
  7. Not only were the earphones terrible in design, they had wires! Why does Apple still use wires between the Ipod and your ears?

    It seems that a pod is a detachable device that carries storage. Apple grabbed that concept and made it sync with their company, similar to iMac, and in the future, iPhone, iPad, and et cetera.
  9. This might also help. I haven't read through it.

    I've neverhad a reason to fuss about the prices of the ipods but I read "It served as an entry-level model with only 512MB or 1GB of storage and no display. Pricing was originally set at $99-$149. "
