With 80GB or 160GB of storage, iPod classic gives your music and video room to move. It also has plenty of energy (up to 40 hours of audio playback), good looks (a sleek, all-metal design), and a great personality (a brand-new interface with Cover Flow). In other words, iPod classic makes an ideal companion.
I think iPod likes to suck your money away, because there is no FM tuner radio, and it costs almost another $50 to have that. What's a stupid gadget!!! I'd like to spend my bucks for zune 80gb (2 generation) which I assume it's more tolerate with people's money.
I've had my ipod for six months now and at first I loved it right up until the problems began. After buying 2 games, my ipod froze up while playing one of the games and indicated that I needed to email customer service in order to restore my ipod. Luckily, I plugged it into my computer to charge the battery, and after about 15 minutes, the ipod reset itself and I did not loose any music at all.
The second problem I have with this ipod and I own a nano as well. If your computer crushes, it is difficult finding the correct software to purchase in order to get your songs back from your ipod onto your new computer (Itunes Library). Once you purchase this software all of your songs still are not transferred back onto your computer.
The third problem is Apple recently came up with a software update that automatically downloaded Safari(Apple's search engine) onto my computer and it ended up deleted all of my yahoo icons and search engines. The Safari software nearly crashed my computer so just be caution about your apple ipod software updates and read the very long disclaimer before downloading or updating anything or you could destroy the settings on your computer.
