I miss my iPod. My sh*t got stolen. I had the 160gb iPod classic. I had music from all kinds of genres on there.

One day Iím just going to pony up the cash and buy another iPod classic. Too many people call me and fu*k up my vibe when Iím streaming on my phone.
Tell me about it.

How about when you're running Android 10 on the latest Snapdragon with the latest security patch and STILL for some reason something weird happens like the screen getting stuck during unlock or you're phone having to restart or some stupid notification popping up? These current devices are all so bloated with bunch of software it makes the unstable.

Creative Zen Vision M was my MP3 player of choice. It blew every iPod out the water (other than the touch)

I probably have to cop me a another IPod Touch so I can bump my old Gucci Mane tapes without having to delete space on my Android Phone.
You know Android's have SD card slots, right?

Yeah. I have a 32 GB one. The thing with me is that I would keep it on there if the album is good. I like to play whole albums. Deleting comes with decisions

When Iím doing cardio outside (sprinting hills, running 4 miles) I use my nano not phone. Iíve been doing that for years, fu*k the bullsh*t. Of rocking my 800+ dollar phone. To fall and break, and most importantly like feeling light. Not clunky.

n*ggas werenít hip on that nano recall hustle. I made 15k profit in a couple months off it. Iíll still collect ipods like trading cards. Theyíre gonna be stupid high in 5-10
question for you.

I have a second gen iPod touch 8 gb. I've had it since 2010 with music from more than one computer on it. Can I take the music off of that ipod and transfer it to another ipod? and do you recommend getting Apple's latest ipod touch?

The real story is the "rise" and the fall of the Zune.

The true underdeveloped GOAT.
The Zune HD was superior to the iPod Touch in every way. Apple just had better marketing. Damn shame Zune is now reduced to a punchline on sitcoms and movies.

Youíre gonna have to use some third party software, to get your OG library off the iPod. Iíll try and look up the software, I used it a few years ago. Apple updates made that DRM sh*t become a barrier, to folks getting their old music without specific 3rd party apps.

Nah. To be honest Iím cool with my little baby here (7th gen) you can find iPods sometimes for cheap on selling apps like 5 miles n offer up. Iím cheap man, no need to buy something for $100-300, when a used on works fine. Or is easy to repair

Yezzir. Check your local thrifts and pawn shops too. I got tons of nanos from there during the 1st gen nano recall days. Which got me my 7th generation for $10. They ended the ďrecallĒ but you may be able to contact and see if they have other incentives.

They stole the concept and design from Creative Technologies anyway and paid them $100 mil for it. Creative still lost in a long run
How can you walk away from a 100 million dollar check? Would the iPod have been as big without that logo behind it?

I would of needed a percentage of something moving forward too though for me to call it good.

I was looking at getting an iPod a few years back to keep plugged into the car and play music. I found it was cheaper to buy a used iPhone instead. These new iPods look just like phones. I donít get it
I ended up doing this when my classic went out. Only issue is that when using with headphones, the dac on the classic is way better in sound quality than any of the iPhones can produce.

Agreed. I still download my music the old fashioned way. Way too much stuff that's not on streaming apps.

I had one of these in high school.
Possibly saved my life when I went to a new high school out of Montreal in a place where there was like 5 black people in that school.
If it wasn't for this to block all these annoying fu*kers out and playing basketball I could have been in a dire predicament.
Made me focus on just doing school and getting the fu*k outta there.
Made me anti social at one point but I don't regret it because them two last yrs were hell.

I still have it hanging around somewhere.
30gb sh*t man I had all my music collection at the time on it.

man fu*k that sh*t! Those LCD on the pocket DJ was fragile as sh*t! I went throught 4 of them! I remember bi*ching dell out about it for the free replacements lol
Because it was a gift to me, and it was bought in store by an uncle, and when it would break I would go through the same process as you.
But one time I was like fu*k it(was dumb and young) when I received the replacement
Sent the box back with nothing in there(I kept the MP3 player because nothing was wrong with it.)
So I had two.

But I lost the other one over a madden game vs a friend.
lol.

Lost my iPod classic 160gb that had over 20,000 songs. Mixtape stuff and loose tracks that would appear on hiphopgame, allhiphop, etc. Some songs I'll never find again. That's when the jukebox section was clutch.

All the digital streaming apps k*lled it.
