My "iPod classic" rant

although im not going to purchase any new ipod after i heard about the upcoming iphone updates, i do have one question.

any reason why the classic isnt in colors?
are we going to see colors in a few weeks, like the shuffle (just silver at first then colors)?

edit:

'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.

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?

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.
