You fail Ranting 101. You can't ask non-rhetorical questions!

'Classic' ipods didn't come in Silver or Black either, which by the way are both colours. ;)

Wow, even though Apple released some great iPods today the OP still had to complain about something. He's not gonna buy but he still is ranting about colors that don't exist. :p

Also it depends on the demographic that's buying the iPod. The Nano ships in many colors because many teenagers, kids, women and even ages 18-25 will buy on looks alone. The iPod classic appeals to ages 18-50 and that's why it comes in those basic colors. Can you see your 50 year old dad with a pink iPod classic? :D

Technically, they're gradients. ;)

I can't see Apple adding any tint to them, unless there will be a (PRODUCT)RED version.

I think its fine...in line with Apple's line...and keep a music based iPod around.




But one can savely say Apple's white age is over!

On a side note, doesn't iPod Classic just ring iPod Old? Doesn't fit with the modern/hip feel of the iPod to me...

Easy answer:

The classic is a manly man's iPod. We don't need no stinkin' colors except black and silver.
