I for the first time in a few weeks picked up my 80gig iPod and was like ewww. This feel so big bulky stubby and primitive. Still it is 80gb and i really still have to use it for trips because i have a lot of tv shows and movies i really like the iPhone and i think that it's fine for my music and photos even though i have 34mb free space left. lol

What do you all think after playing with your iPhone then going back to older stuff? :D:apple::apple:

I know what you mean. Videos on the iPod look so small now. I've only used my iPod once since purchasing my iPhone and that was while I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep.

Agreed, the interface seems ancient to me. The only reason I use it is when I want to play music through my stereo, or with nicer headphones because of the damn recessed headphone jack. I'll be getting an adapter, and when I do I assume my iPod will feel very very lonely.
Still, it's nice to have all my music in one place, and it'll be used. Just far less frequently. Hopefully it'll help the hard drive last longer.

That's kinda creepy considering i did that just last night...... lol. I forgot to leave that out also vids are way small. One workaround i did to play movies on the iPhone without keeping them on it is i hosted my tv shows on my website so i can watch them when im out and about. All though its kinda hard to do on "EDGE"

A guy I work with just went to get a new phone and he knew anything he gets compared to my phone will be lame, so he's holding out. For the iPhone

yeah i know exactly what you mean...my iPod has been laying on my dining room table since 6:30 on friday june 29th haha...and i picked up my old phone last night (a sony w600i) and it felt like a hollow piece of plastic that was ready to fall apart...i couldn't believe i used that piece of garbage for a year...i would mumble the phrase "i only have to use this until apple releases a phone" all the time with that piece of junk...

i always laugh when i watch the keynote, and steve is done presenting the iphone, and then he puts the picture back up of the 4 other smartphones (the blackberry, palm, etc).. they look so crappy after the all the demos of the iphone

amen, my 5g looks like caveman because it doesnt play widescreen videos and no coverflow. I cant believe i used a razr for 2 years. That thing is a piece of *****. Although i use the 5g at work cuz it wont run my battery down, i hate using the clickwheel cuz i cant flick through my music.. :(

When I was at the Apple Store recently some guy had brought in an original firewire iPod. Now THAT looked old. Even though it's not an antique, by far, I felt like I was looking at an old 8-Track Cassette.... LOL!

No going back!

Yeah, I know the feeling. Since I got my iPhone I can never go back to my OLD Razr or iPod. Everything else just seems old and antiquated. Can't wait to see what's next. :)

I picked up my treo, that I've used for years, and tried to scroll the screen with my finger.

I was laughing after watching an Envy phone commercial. But I'll give them an E for Effort. Nobody's envying that as much as the iPhone.

Pre-iPhone, said I would NEVER take my iPhone to the gym. I would use my Nano. Well, my Nano has been collecting dust. The iPhone is perfect in the gym with a case. That way I can also get calls in the morning, surf the web on the bike, etc. It's the perfect gym companion.

It does make my old Verizon phones look like a total and complete joke.

I remember praying my phone would connect to the internet within 5 minutes of asking it to....and all I would get is headlines from that terrible Verizon service.

motor-memory upgrades leave hardware in the dust...

i tried to touch the screen on my dads slvr
yeah when i first got a g4 powerbook, my brain IMMEDIATELY signed on to two-finger scrolling. I keep trying to do that on the trackpad of an old ibook in the kitchen, sigh... so of course the iPhone already has me trying to punch the nonexistent center bottom button on my nanos and assorted other iPods.
