As I'm in the process of researching a new phone I was in our local Apple reseller and I looked at the iPods. They're all very shiny and fancy, but I thought: Why buy an iPod when I can buy a phone with an iPod inside? Why carry around two devices? I own a lot of portable music devices (MP3-players as they're called when they're not iPods), but I have to say it has been 3 years since I've used anyone of them. When I've wanted to listen to music, I have used my phone, my iPad or my laptop(netbook until recently Mac). The best use I see for them is when you're exercising, where you require as small a device as possible. I recon the use of portable music devices will decline in the coming ten years... What do you think?
