So I've been looking at the new iPod lineup announced yesterday and I don't understand Apple's reasoning for most of it. Separately, each model seems alright but they don't fit together in a product line at all. Here's what I don't get: Shuffle: Actually, this one still makes sense. Same price, same storage. Nothing was wrong with it in the first place so why change it?? New colors, whatever, don't care either way. Nano: New shape and size don't really bother me at all. It can play video, great. My problem is this, for an extra $50, you can upgrade from 8 gigs to 80 gigs on the classic. Both models can play video but who wants to watch video on a 2" screen?? Again, by itself the Nano is a great device. But compared to the Classic, I don't understand why you would bother buying the 8 gig model (which it appears Apple thinks will be the popular one based on its choice of colors). Classic: New HD sizes are great. 80 gigs for $249 blows any of the competition out of the water. 160 gigs is the largest capacity of any player out there. Again, not really much of a complaint here. Touch: This has got to be the dumbest idea Apple could have ever thought up. Lets make the best iPod ever have the worst storage capacity ever. Come on, 8 or 16 gigs?? The screen is great for playing video but how much can you fit with that little storage?? And the price is crazy as well. I'd much rather get an 80 gig Classic than an 8 gig Touch for more money. And if you are going to bother getting the 16 gig, why not just get the iPhone for the same price?? And please don't say because of the AT&T contract, most of us have cell phone bills anyway so I don't really see that as an issue. I don't understand why they didn't put a hard drive in the Touch. I would have gladly bought a Touch if it had an 80 gig HD. Heck, even a 30 gig HD would have been nice. If you are going to say you only want it for an internet device, thats fine but I'll keep my iPhone that can get online wherever I am thanks to the EDGE connection. The way I see it, this would be my ideal iPod lineup: Shuffle 1 gig, $79 Nano 8 gig, $149 (available in all colors) Classic 80 gig, $249 Classic 160 gig, $349 Touch 30 gig, $299 Touch 80 gig, $399 iPhone 8 gig, $399 Anyways, just my rant. Feel free to flame away, rip it apart, whatever. I was just wondering if anyone out there had similar thoughts.
