iPod Classic

So, why did I get this iPod when I already have an iPod Touch 4G? Well, to be honest, I really bought the Touch to be able to play the games in App Store. It’s a bit too expensive and fragile to be laying around in my pockets even with protection. And with a mere 8 GB of storage my mp3 collection doesn’t fit. Thus, enter the iPod Classic! With 80 GB of storage it takes all of my mp3’s and can automatically sync with my library everytime it charges to get the newest songs as well. Plus, it’s already used and scratched which makes it easier to just drop it down one of my pockets like I didn’t care. I bought it for a bit over 30 dollars which makes it, for me, really really cheap and therefore I’m very happy about this purchase.
The problem this particular iPod had was a headphone jack that didn’t connect properly and the music only came out to one ear but a little bit of careful bending with a needle fixed that right up and now it works like a charm.

Specs:
Firmware 1.1.2

iPod Touch 4G – Keith

I really haven’t got all that much to say about this item. I’m not really a fan of the ultra thin design and would very much prefer a old classic 80GB iPod if it wasn’t for the games. I mainly bought this to gain access to all the apps in App Store. I also use it as a music player of course, but since I was cheap and bought the 8GB model there isn’t very much space for anything. I’m content with it as it is, but as soon as I lay my hands on the forementioned iPod I’ll be using this one strictly as a gaming device. Oh, and it got its name from Keith Apicary.

Specs:
Firmware 5.1
