    Back in the old days, everyone has a PSP or a Nintendo GameBoy. No exceptions. Everywhere you look, they're all carrying one. Today, you can never see a normal person carrying one of those unless they are hipsters (Sorry for the term).

    What about the iPod? It was once so popular but now all I see are iPhones. I rarely see anyone has an iPod classic, nano or even shuffle these days.

    The touch is a bit more common.

    Did the iPod days die? Is it over?

    I don't think so. Car entertainment enthusiast I think would always welcome the classic for the storage of music and video as the extras of a touch either aren't worth it, or can be used via bluetooth.

    At my school, almost everyone has one (25 percent nano, 25 percent iPhone, 50 percent touch)

    The iPod is still a huge part of Apple's turnover.

    They won't be getting rid of it anytime soon I can assure you.

    What the original iPod was, yes. That era is gone. The iPod Touch tho... not quite, it is today's GameBoy sort of speaking.

    It's a shrinking market. Kids are getting cell phones at younger and younger ages. And most adults have phones too. So fewer people need iPods for music.
