No, that's exactly what I meant. The Shuffle and Nano are frequently given as gifts. The Classic would not be given as a gift as often, even in terms of percentage sales.

I think a lot of the users here could attest to this. How many iPods have you given as a gift? What format were they?

I've bought 4 iPods for myself:

1. 5GB G1
2. 40GB G3
3. 1GB Shuffle G2 (Silver)
4. 160GB Classic (Silver)

I've bought 3 as gifts:

1. 4GB Mini G1 (Pink)
2. 1GB Shuffle G2 (Silver)
3. 8GB Nano G2 (Product Red)

I don't know of anyone who would give an iPod Classic as a gift, except a parent whose kid asked for one.

But, that may not be possible, due to DRM restrictions. It's possible that any playbeck device will need HDCP for playback in both devices.

You're getting warm!
