Really, why are you here?

Which is rather stupid if you think about it.
And Ping is dead because they didn't build it on iPods.
No ping is dead because it was a stupid idea.
If it was built in the music app on every iPhone and iPod touch we would be able to get updates from our artists by clicking their names, all their tour dates, if they were on tour, and have small biographies (including the meanings of their songs) and the ability to share playlists with friends, and what we are listening to.
Who in the hell cares about an artist tour schedule? If a person does, Apple is the last place to go looking for info on any one group. As to biographies, I fine that I have zero need to stalk people or otherwise voyeur some stranger. It is darn creepy the way that people get wrapped up in their favorite artists.
As to play lists I really don't want to know what you are listening to. I don't care really.
You guys don't see the future. Why are you on here if you're going to criticize negatively...
No one is being negative here. All we are doing is pointing out a few realities.
It's a forum, where you're supposed to promote FUTURE hardware.
Exactly! If you where in the loop you might have heard that Apple is going to a new dock connector. Such a connector immediately makes the classic obsolete. A new device that comes out with that connector can no longer be a classic.
As to the future Touch is the path, it has the hardware and operating system to support what you want. With a strong SSD update it can replace the classic capacity wise too.
How do you not see iTunes and Streamable Podcasts being intergrated into all the next gen iPods...
Have you ever picked up a Touch? It has these features already. Beyond that many users of the other iPods would barf at the thought of all that crap running on their music players. People still buy iPods to focus on the enjoyment of music in a simple to use device.
They are really good ideas.. NFC photostreams... Bluetooth 4.0 headphones, multitouch retina screen on the ipod classic...
Yeah they are so good Apple has implemented them already, well at least some of those features. They just didn't implement them on the hard ware you want them on.
Why wouldn't Apple do this is the question. I would buy it instantly. I need a freaking update.
Again it makes no sense for Apple implement something that it already has in a similar device. You basically argue here for the very things that are already in a touch. Why you want all of this ported to a classic is beyond me. Consider also the rumors of larger Touch and iPhones next month, which could lead to additional capabilities being built into the Touch. I just don't see the motivation for Apple to try to work all this capability into a classic.
