Are you joking? Or simply clueless?
LOTS of people are waiting for a new iPod classic and HAVE been for two years. Last Year was a horrible downgrade, with the loss of FOURTY GIGS of storage to the 120 classic.
I know several people with 160 gig classics that are waiting and expecting a larger capacity device. 160 gigs (let alone 120!!!) is ridiculously too small to be the largest of iPod lineup. With the prices on storage now we should be seeing a 200+ gig iPod, or even a 300+ gig iPod to keep the real media hounds happy.
Count me as one of the faithful eagerly awaiting 9/9, with the hope of a much larger iPod Classic - last year was a horrible disappointment, not only because of the cut in storage, but because the VERY NEXT DAY after Apple's little press stunt, Toshiba announced a 240GB hard drive that would fit very nicely inside the Classic (fat) units! ugh!
Right now I'm pusing 3GB of free space left on the 160GB iPod Classic that I store all my electronic, pop, rock, and alternative music on (yes, I categorize everything into just a few genres). The other 160GB unit has plenty of free space, but I put country, live albums, soundtracks, musicals, etc on there.
The bottom line is, us media hounds NEED more space - come on Apple, until flash memory gets to the 160GB level and above, do NOT discontinue the Classic - that is simply unacceptable!
