Our good friend Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple was talking about how the iPod is going to die out and why the iPhone sucks. He said this nonsense:

Quote:
Wozniak told The Daily Telegraph that the iPod has had a long time as the world's most popular media player, and that it will fall from grace due to oversupply.

"The iPod has sort of lived a long life at number one. Things like that, if you look back to transistor radios and Walkmans, kind of die out after a while, " he said.


Is he retarded? Those things didn't die out because of oversupply. They died out because a superior medium for music was released...namely tapes and then CDs, respectively. The iPod is not going to die out due to oversupply, it would die out for a similar reason, if some better technology comes along.

Fuck that guy. No wonder Apple got rid of him.

Yeah, because it's a fantastic device.

Oversupply? Is he dumb?

Oversupply means you can get two.

That's borderline R. E. Hughes territory there.

So, I don't buy a new one every time I leave it in my backpack and think it's lost and frantically email the house.

I merely update as the memory gets better.

I've had the same 30 Gb iPod for 5 years...what kind of memory improvements are you even talking about?

Well, first I had the old-school 4 GB mini with a battery life of about 3 hours, then the nano that came with my mac that had maybe 2 GB, then I finally got tired of cycling through my songs all the time so I got a real iPod last Christmas.

I've had my two gig nano for about 4/5 years (since right after they came out).

Unfortunately... it's been dying a slow death over the past few months. I plan to replace it in some way over Christmas.
