    I use mine to play music, same as my iPod classics. And no, I don't have an iPhone, (never felt the need for one), and while I do have an iPad, I find I never use it - my MBA does all the iPad does and better…..

    I use mine for just music too. Recently I started to keep the wifi off at all times and just sync it when I want to add stuff. The battery life has been great.

    I have an original video iPod. I think I got it in March of 2006. I also have a thing that Apple used to make that you can use to attach your iPod so that the music can blast through the big speakers. It's white all around except for the speaker cover (black). I don't remember what it's called.

    I only use these when I'm outside doing yard work that takes more than, say, 3 hours or for cleaning the garage. That kind of thing.

    I'm glad I have them but don't use them a lot these days.

    True story, by the way do you sometimes experience the alarm simply going of at the wrong times and then erasing themselves?

    Ha Ha - wouldn't be much good if it did that! I'm running an iPod Touch 2 with IOS 4.

    It happens to me occasionally, mostly when setting a new alarm, running a 5th gen. nano 8GB

    iPod touch

    I love the iPod line, and I wouldn't want to see it replaced by the iPhones. I have an iPod touch 5th gen, and love it. I use it for emails and slight web surfing. I mainly use it for my music, since I like to take it when I travel.

    Games, Facebook, YouTube, Skype, iMessage.

    I generally use it before school. For us teens who cannot afford a smartphone plan, the iPod Touch is a very good alternative. Since I got my S4 Mini outright, I still use my iPod Touch more than my S4 Mini - because the iOS experience is more fluid.

    If you don't know what to do with it, pass it onto another family member (my mom uses my 3rd gen for mail / safari) or use it in an iPod dock.

    I use my iPod touch and iPod classic as a backup to my iPhone. When you travel or go places you can use the iPod to listen to music so that you won't drain your iPhone battery down. I think I might get a 5th Gen iPod touch so that I can use it to make calls. :)

    Thanks, I couldn't remember what it was called. Wow, I don't remember paying that much for it. I guess I did.
