1 is my iPod for when I want to impress. It's the original, the one that no one's ever seen. Whenever I take it out, the first question is "is that really an iPod", usually followed by "is it a knockoff type?" Then they ohh and ahh, and get all jealous of because their color screen-video playing-G5 doesn't have a wheel on it that spins.

1 is for running a backup of my OS on, as well as a portable HDD for moving ISO's onto my PC to burn them onto DVD.

1 is for actually using to listen to music.

What does this mean?? Sorry for the ignorance.

I have 4...er...3 now, I just sold my shuffle

My nano is for workout purposes (or soon to be after my motivation comes from the new nike plus deal), my 5G is my main toy, and my 4G...well unfortuanely I dont use it all that much.

Take up vigourous exercise and your pesky hard-drive based iPod will soon give up, meaning you'll need a nice new flash-based iPod to take it's place (or complement it). You'll stay fit and have an excuse for an iPod. :cool:

I have two 1st Gen iPods. One was my dads and the other is mine. I still have not found out a use for the other iPod.

1st Gen 5GB: Was my first main iPod, then became my work iPod, then became mostly a nostalgia piece.

2nd Gen 20GB: Was my main iPod. Sold it after winning a 3rd Gen in a contest.

3rd Gen 10GB: Was my main iPod, now my work iPod. Won in an AOL beta contest. Don't really care for the button layout, but it was free.

5th Gen 60GB: Current main iPod. Black model.

The title of "work iPod" is for the iPod that I use to keep only the songs of the artists I've recently been working for. I work as a lighting designer for live concert tours, and it's quite handy to keep all of the artists music on one iPod.

So I currently have three: a 1st 5GB, a 3rd 10GB, and a 5th 60GB (black).

Me:
4G 60GB Photo - daily use for commute and Bose SoundDock at work
1GB Shuffle - to use for chores or walks

Wife:
4GB Mini - for daily music and audiobooks, used in JBL OnStage and iHome

Daughter:
5G 60GB - for daily use

Son:
512MB Shuffle - for his own tunes (originally got for me, absconded by the wife, but she ultimately let him have it [and I got that 1GB Shuffle;) ])

I'm disappointed that I haven't managed to manufacture a justification for a nano yet.:D

i have a


nano - gift, girlfriend uses it
shuffle - the gym, in case it gets banged around - a freebie for opening a bank account
20GB third generation - i use it everyday for the bus ride


i still think the nano is the coolest. if they do come out with larger capacity ones in the fall - i'd be interested in a larger one - 20 - 40 GB.

I use them for different categories of music. In order of acquisition:

30 GB 3rd gen (with separate buttons over clickwheel)
Replaced my 40 GB Creative Labs Nomad 3 and I haven't looked back. I had to seriously amputate sections of my collection to fit. Now it holds my classical/jazz/blues sub-collection.

60 GB 4th gen:
Holds my main rock music collection, but I still had to amputate live music. It's stuffed to the gills, so I don't have room to add anything new unless I delete something.

1 GB shuffle:
For my wife

60 GB 5th gen (black):
Holds music videos and is basically my mobile video player for car/plane trips, so it has some of my favorite movies (like Office Space) and Top Gear episodes (I am addicted to Top Gear/Fifth Gear/Jeremy Clarkson and have all episodes and videos on the iPod). Most music videos are rips of my music DVDs.

4 GB Nano (white):
Holds my "new" music that hasn't made it onto the main collection yet... Think of it as a staging area for newly purchased music.
