I would love to own a new iPod Touch 64 GB for $199. More than that and it seems overpriced.

Apparently, this should be " I would love to own a new the iPod Touch 63gb for $199."
I hate it when people don't use adverbs proper.

Interesting tidbit: according to the new Jony Ive bio coming out this week Steve was not initially a fan of white products. Jony and his team produced a bunch of prototypes in different shades of white and finally got Steve on board. Also other execs at Apple weren't on board with white headphones because nobody else was doing white and they said headphones aren't supposed to be white. It's amazing to think about now considering Apple's huge advertising campaign centered around white headphones.
The iPod is not retired. Apple updates the iPods every two years, instead of one. The 160GB iPod Classic is still sold by Apple and people that want their entire music collection with them are the customers that buy that model. It has not been updated lately because it does not need any further updating. It does exactly what it was designed to do, store a large library of media. I use the 160GB model in my car and take it with me on vacations so I can have my entire collection with me, not a limited selection on an iPhone or small capacity iPod Touch. The cloud is a joke, doesn't match music properly, and I don't want to rely on an internet connection to listen to my music (especially with a limited data plan).
No, I meant you should used the 'the' before 'iPod'. Otherwise you end up sounding like a wannabe Steve and it's cringeworthy.
Oh, I see. I’m mixed about doing that. Generally I still use ‘the’, but I’ll drop it if I start a sentence with the product name.
Please avoid posts regarding grammar. If you don't believe me, please re-read your post once again, carefully.
I think he was making a joke to that effect.
I still have my original, 5 GB 1st gen iPod. For years, I just had it permanently plugged into the power supply at my bedside for listening before I went to sleep.
Recently, the hard drive started making noises and it stopped functioning. The last song it played was "Strawberry Fields Forever"...which means its last words were "I buried Paul". (...or, if you believe the Paul McCartney replacement quoted on Wikipedia, "cranberry sauce")
I don't know if it's worth trying to repair, or even possible. (I have a clip-on type iPod shuffle which has taken it's place while it's down.) It was hardly pristine- it got used fairly hard. But it lived a good, long reliable life.

Should be. Just find a 1.8” HDD on eBay.
