Other ChatFor non-Pokemon discussion on everything else. For casual talk only, any more serious topics such as current events, should be in the Discussion. You can talk about anything else that is not covered in the other "Other Boards" that are above.
Ahem. Yup. As the others have said, Classic is the only thing left and 80 gig is the best way to go. You can get a really nice protective case from iSkin that has a hard screen cover and squishy rubber-like full-iPod grip to go over it for about thirty-three bucks (including tax in my state) at your local Apple store. It even has fun flaps to leave all the plug-ins open~
Be forewarned: if you get a new model iPod, and you have CDs with compilations of various artists, your cover-flow will have multiple images for the same cover. Other than that (and iTunes itself) there are no immediate or particularly bothersome problems with the iPod (unless you intend to buy a new computer and transfer all your songs by putting them onto your iPod and uploading them to the new PC--*shudder*).
If I were you, I'd completely ignore Apple and go with the Zen.... http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Porta...2400260&sr=8-7 Comparing the iPod to the Zen is like putting a chihuahua next to a saint bernard and contrasting their sizes. This is the 32 gig--it's fifty dollars more than the 4th gen 16 gig Nano ($190), but carries twice as much stuff. And... is... just... the definition of better. Their protective cases are cheaper and cooler, although my Zen goes commando so I can't vouch for an overall "better". As far as I know, the Zen (at least, the earlier models) is not compatible with iTunes; however, you CAN import your iTunes songs to whatever compatible music library you use.
Meh, I use mp3raid.com or mp3fusion.com. They're both legal to a certain extent, I think. If you, like, download an entire album and rip it onto a CD and stuff like that. Pretty sweet. You don't have to download any software or make an account. Just search and go.
