Question about a Fake Apple Product...


I'm new to the forum and I have a question that I'm hoping more experienced Apple Users can answer.

I love my music, and I have a vast amount of it on an external hard dive. I'm interested in being able to access most, if not all of it while at home. I'd prefer not to run my apple laptop and external drive which would be hooked up to an older stero system with a solid line in cable. Instead, I now fill to capacity my 20 gig iPod, severely limiting what I can listen to. I've considered buying the 160 gig iPod, but I hear it's either going away soon, or updated in 2011..?

So Here's my question, and maybe i'm totally missing the boat on Apple products here: But does anyone think Apple would ever make an iPod product specifically designed for home usage and not mobile/portable usage? Something that holds vast quantities of music, hooks directly into your sound system, has the clasic iPod wheel, no camera, games, or other frills needed, and maybe bonus control abilities remotely perhaps in an iphone app, remote, etc... My bad if they do make this product already, I'm just trying to figure out how to maximize my music collection in the best possible way.

Thank you :-)

Apple won't make a product like that, as there isn't a huge market for it, especially with apple's notoriously high prices. I think the iPod classic is your best bet, and you could even get a used one for pretty cheap if it's just going to be for stereo use.
a computer with some GHz and a few GB, some stuff to play music.

The closest thing that fits the description is the Apple TV G1.

They already do: http://www.apple.com/ipodclassic/

Or you can stream your music (as well as movies, TV shows, photos, etc.) to a receiver connected to a TV with an Apple TV. The included remote is mimimalistic.

I have a 32gb ipod touch and an airport express plugged into my home stereo. This way I can play my music from my ipod and anyone else who is there can also. No wires involved and the airport express has an optical out to plug into your stereo.
