But I don’t want portable access to my music library limited to a Wi-Fi or 3G connection, especially when I’m traveling by car or plane.
Sure there are many advantages to accessing your music on the i Phone or other i OS device.
Back in its heyday, the original i Pod and its six generations that followed made Apple the coolest, hippest, and most forward thinking tech company on the planet.
You literally dial up the songs you want and click to start listening.
Back in 2001, the release of Apple’s i Tunes brought me back to listening to jazz, and a little of rap and R&B music.
A few years before then, I was reluctant to shell out for music CDs only to get a couple of great songs.
They have perhaps more reliable flash memory with no moving (HDD) parts to break down; wireless syncing, a bigger display, and the ability to run other music related apps – most notably very affordable streaming music sites like Rdio and Spotify.
But these advantages don’t make up for the storage capacity of the i Pod Classic and its easier navigation features.
