I have a 160gb Classic that I use at home. I just love it. Over the last couple years I've noticed that the focus has been on the Nano and the Touch. Do you think Apple will discontinue the model soon?
We would all notice if a important model was discontinued. And I'd like to know the lack in forum activity. I see forum activity on average about every 3-4 minutes, a couple of seconds some days. I think Apple will eventually discontinue the shuffle, but the nano I'm not sure about.
I think he meant lack of activity in the iPod classic forum.
They still have their uses since they can hold so much more music than an iPhone... But the problem I see with it is that most people just don't have that much music to even bother with an iPod classic. Then you figure the screen is too small to watch videos, and there aren't apps, and the internal hard drive are inherently fragile... I think it's only a matter of time before they're axed.
I wouldn't be surprised to hear they'll be discontinued with the unveiling of iOS 5 and its cloud-based services.
I for one hope that Apple would someday get back to focusing on media only devices. I doubt it though and I'm probably in the minority. People love apps and love the double duty you get from an iPod touch. Me, I love dedicated devices, but felt the Classic felt "old". It leaves options of either iPod touch vs Classic. Or in my case, you go elsewhere.
I have an 80GIG classic which I haven't touched since first buying my iPhone 3G... Not even sure where it is anymore, lol. Haven't bothered selling it, and probably won't either....I'll probably just hand it down to my grandkids, so they can see how us old timers used to listen to music.
i have a 160 gig classic, but have no idea how it works. when i load music videos that i copy from my dvds using handbrake, it loads them as movies and says i have no music videos, but they're also shown under video playlist.
bc it doesn't see them as music videos i can't shuffle them (not to mention they're loaded twice, taking up twice the memory).
i can't shuffle the wav files on it either. i have to shuffle them in iyunes on my imac, and then drag them to the classic.
other than that it's a helluva device, i guess. i use the dx to play musis.
looking to liberate my ipod touch.

I love my 160g iPod! It stays hooked up in my truck at all times. There is no other device that holds so much content. I also have one of the original 20g iPods. I would be very upset if they were discontinued.
