    I don't get it. Why can't the Ipod Touch have 160gb like the Ipod Classic? Why can't it have FM radio too? If the Ipod Touch had those features, there would be no need for Nano, Shuffle, or Classic. Seriously, the Classic needs a more "modern" look with updated technology.

    Business 101-

    its all about the money

    Apple would rather you pay $1000 for all iPods than 300$ on a single device...

    The Classic uses a hard drive. The Touch uses a flash drive. 160 GB of flash memory is very expensive.

    Uhh, the point of the Nano and the Shuffle are that they're smaller and cheaper.

    "the iPod touch is too big!" :rolleyes:

    "I want a small device that's portable" :cool:

    Consumers differentiate from one another...

    Agreed.

    Also consumers don't all want the same device. How boring would it be if there was just one model of iPod that all looked the same?

    "Hey I got an new iPod" "Which one?" "*The* iPod" :-/

    Why?

    I would rather they just increase the capacity. If you want all the bells and whistles just get an iPod touch.

    I wouldn't even mind if they removed most of the 'features' from the classic, I've had mine for 3.5 years and all I've ever done is play music. :D

    No, you don't.

    Why can't all vehicles be black 4 wheel drive crew cab pickups? Seriously, you don't get it.

    I think that's a horrible analogy. My point was efficiency and consolidation.

    Restating the reason why you don't get it doesn't change the fact that you don't get it. :)
