    Hahahahaha, yeah, I saw that awhile back.

    I bet most of those people ended up buying iPods at some point too. I don't think it'll be the same with the Apple Watch though.

    The other day I saw my Pocket PC in one of our cabinets, and I was like, why did I replace this for THAT?! I gradually lost interest in it when I got my iPod 3rd generation. Even worse was when the iPhone 2G came out and the only issue I had was that I couldn't use RealPlayer on it to stream internet radio.

    i liked this post

    revolutionary?

    There are already two products similar to this on the market. The Nomad Jukebox and the Archos Jukebox which can come with a 20 gig HD. The iPod is obviously alot cooler and has firewire, but it is far from revolutionary. I for one am disappointed and think that apple is making a mistake by trying to get into this market.


    creative labs is nowhere near where they used to be, and those players don't even exist anymore, and the iPod is still around

    wikipedia says that the archos was only sold for 2 years!

    in 97 people thought that apple was doomed and they were almost bankrupt and had to borrow money from microosoft.
    people were saying apple wasn't going anywhere , they were almost as big as mcdonalds. , so we have to forgive those people for being extra mean towards the iPod.

    i was watching old shows about 90s macworld (WWDC) trying to research an item. and they said , whenever someone says apple is doomed and they will crash and burn, buy apple stock
