Exactly what mine will do once the 5g is delivered.
There's not a thing wrong with that. Buying a new thing when the thing you've got is still working perfectly well, that's expensive and not really all that bright. (I would know, I suffer from that particular affliction)
That's a pretty good testament to the robustness of the first generation iPod touch. I miss that. I had one one time, and I still look back on it fondly.
If it ain't broke...
If you use it, thats the only thing that matters.
I still have my 1st gen Touch. It had the Wolfson audio chip which is regarded as the best for iPod audio. You could only get it in 16GB max though. I did upgrade to a Gen3 cause I could get it in 64GB for my music and believe that is overall the best classic Touch. The new gen 5 is really good though and may be my next Touch.
Starting in Janurary of 2008, the first generation iPod Touch could be bought in sizes of 32GB for $499. I still use mine often. Mostly for music and Netflix.
Sadly there are so many people that are in the race of "keeping up with the jones' " that they'll buy the latest gadget even though they don't need it they just want to keep up with the crowd.
I'm admittedly this way at times where I feel like I "need" the latest device but since I use the iPod Touch as more or less as a password storage/calendar/to-do list the 4th gen is still decent for this. I do play games on it occasionally but its not the primary function for me.
As tempting as the 5th gen is I can't really find a reason to justify spending at least $300 on it especially for mostly PDA functionality.
Hey as long as it works to your needs thats really all that matters. Of course the battery is probably getting a little crusty at this point, I know my 120GB Classic (2008) is starting to become a turd with getting only about 24-26 hours of music.
Yup 1st gen was the only one to carry the Wolfson chipset vs the cheap Cirrus Logic crap they've been using. Although they have improved considerably I still don't think the sound is as balanced as the Wolfson chipset.
5th Gen iPod Video and Zune also uses the Wolfson chipset and I find a pretty clear difference with HQ head phones when switching between my Classic and 5th gen.
I had an used mine until just a few weeks ago, when my son inherited it. Never had a problem with it. Great device.
How is your battery doing? I've had mine since 2008 and after the last charge the battery lasted just under 8 hours.
I haven't timed it, but it's very good. Enough at least to get me through 3-4 TV show episodes, if I remember correctly.
ipod touch 1st gen
How does your netflix still work. I've been very diligent not to update apps but netflix just quit working about 6mos ago. Bought a 5thgen but the wifi was terrrible so I returned it.
I don't know. It just does. I update the apps through the iPod's App Store, so it running the latest Netflix for iOS 3.1.3. Bit slow on loading, but it works.
