New iPods?

With all of the news of a new Apple TV at WWDC, no one is mentioning the other current generation Apple product that will not be supported in September, the iPod Touch.

Editorial that Apple has to decide whether to discontinue or refresh the iPod Touch before WWDC

Natural History of iPod

I just received an iPhone 5S 64GB that I purchased on Amazon marketplace last week. I wanted to replace the iPod touch 4G that I currently use mostly to listen to podcasts and music (the camera in the 4th gen is of rather poor quality and doesn't even have flash). 

In the last one or two years I've started to notice that battery doesn't store so much charge, the battery is drained quick, specially when I watch videos on YouTube for more than an hour, what I often do in bed, or while I am sunbathing in the terrace. In addition, the OS of the iPod 4G stopped being upgraded with iOS 5, some apps take quite a while to get open (e.g. Google+), and some apps often crash (e.g., on Google+, when you open the links of webpages from your stream the app often ends up crashing).

I've been using iPods since 2006, I'm used to subscribe and manage podcasts and music with iTunes, and then sync the device with my playlists on iTunes. So, a different platform wasn't very appealing alternative.

It was also convenient that the device were of same memory capacity or greater in order to store all the files and apps that I currently keep in the iPod. Apple hasn't upgraded the iPod touch in the last 2 years, and the last time they did it had been already fitted with a microprocessor of the previous year's generation. So I wasn't specially thrilled to have a "new" iPod 5G 64 GB fitted with 3-year technology priced at €300 (not particularly cheap either). 

So after some thought, I decided to replace my iPod by a used iPhone, with more advanced technology, more features, better camera, GPS, a fingerprint scanner, etc. I was glad to discover that there was already a 64 GB option for iPhone 5 and 5S. Prices weren't particularly affordable, though. The cheapest fully functional unit that I managed to find (after searching on eBay, and several Amazon stores) was priced at €450. The same seller had placed an offer for the same unit on Amazon UK and Amazon Spain, but at better price in the latter due to the current unfavorable currency exchange rate of the euro with the sterling pound, and iwth a lower shipping price. In adddition, the seller claimed the device was in very good condition so I decided to get it.

I received it today and it turns out that the unit is actually new. No scratches or other sign of previous use whatsoever. This isn't the first time that it happens to me. When I got my latest iPod back in 2012 I also received a completely new unit and even inside its original box (unlike now, the iPhone has come without its original box and without charger).

In summary, I'm happy for my purchase. It cost me 50% more than a new iPod touch 5G 64 GB, but in exchange for the extra price I've got a faster processor, a much better camera, a GPS, and someday I could even use it as an actual phone or to connect to the Internet via a mobile network. So far I have no plans to do such a thing, though.

 Got myself an iPod Classic to replace my dead 3rd Gen iPod Touch. I know, it seems like a downgrade, but I prefer this over the Touch because of the storage and physical buttons. Don't really care about apps and wifi, my smartphone does all that and having a separate music player saves my phone battery.

Since I prefer carrying my entire music library (5,000 songs) in my car, I need a high capacity iPod that just works. Why I have picked the iPod Classic over the 5th gen iPod Touch? I just want my music. Plus I really I like how the battery lasts for days and I can control my iPod with the clickwheel without keeping my eyes off the road.

In fact, my first iPod was an iPod Video 80GB which I had back in my college days, used it for few good years till the hard drive died. Moving from that to a 64GB Touch was exciting at first but I find the touch screen interface cumbersome when used on the road, and the battery life was terrible.

I got this new iPod Classic 160GB couple of weeks ago and lovin it. I get funny responses from friends who look at it. Some laughed at it for being 'dinosaur' technology, others called me a hipster. But I'm loving it. Call me a music hoarder but I love the feeling when I know all my entire music collection I've been collecting for more than 10 years are also backed up in this wonderful device.

They say the future of music listening is online streaming but I don't think its reliable yet (useless without good internet connection). Apple may plan to kill the iPod Classic soon, and trying to sell the idea to everyone that the iPod is in your iPhone, but the iPod is still a great device today for those who value storage and physical buttons.

Throwback time: +U2 iPod

Limited edition iPod signed by all 4 members of rock band +U2. Came with a free copy of Vertigo via iTunes as well. Sadly, I don't know how many were made.

Serious problem:
The clock in my iPod Touch 2G (iOS 4.3) was reset to some 1970 date.
I corrected it manually, and now all calender alerts I set upt in the last 4 years are going off again!
All I can do is tap OK on every single one. I can't do anything else with the device.
HELP!!!

Perhaps a coincidence, so that I just tapped the last-before the last one before locking.
I'never know, but I'm glad it's over. ;-)

The new iPod touch starts at $199 (US) for the 16GB model, $249 (US) for 32GB and $299 (US) for 64GB

The sweet spot is definitely the 32GB model at $249. For only $50 more, you can double your storage capacity, which will come in handy if you plan on using your iPod touch to play games.

iPod is gone from the main menu. I ended up writing a lot more about this than I thought I would, since the iPod Nano has a Podcasts app

+Craig B Well iPod Classic still makes sense because you can fit a million gazillion songs on there.

I agree that for most, iPhones have replaced iPods, but there is still a gap that the iPod fills. That gap is closing because of the Apple Watch; however, the one thing that an iPod Nano can do that an Apple Watch can't is play podcasts.

This probably means that the iPod is dead
So Apple has stopped reporting iPod sales. In the latest profit report the iPod is not listed anymore. Just an “other products” category and of course Apple's all other successful products. It probably means that the iPod is dead. I don't think we will see ...

Hi guys! I've got a problem. My iPod touch 4g 8GB home button has been sort of stuck I guess. It only half works but most of the time I would have to press the home button really hard to get back onto the home screen. Only a few times it would work like a charm. I've had it since December 2010. Any ideas on how to fix this?

My first gen iPod touch is almost useless . I had dedicated it to music but sometime back even list support from Pandora.

Let's see if Jail breaking helps.

It took 30 second and a single swipe at jailbreakme.com
