hey guys i need a new mp3 cuz my irivers gettin alittle dated, i was gonna just get the new ipod nano but the touch has alot more to it and its alot cooler for only $100 more. my mom thinks you have to pay a monthly fee cause it has wi-fi, does any one no if thats true, do you think the touch is worth it or should i stick to the nano. thanks
#2
wi-fi I thought was free... I think there was something on telel about you having to pay to use it in certain areas or that, but apart from that I think it is generally free.

I'd recommend the touch, It can play music videos like the new nano, which I have to say is the most pointless thing they have made who wants to watch anythign on that tiny screen O.o,

so itouch you

+1. iPod classics are far better value for money (comparing cost to capacity, battery life, screen size, etc) than nanos, and since they both do exactly the same things I'd go for the classic.

Dude, you just made the most intelligent post in this entire thread. Congrats.

If you have a router in your home, wifi is free (while you're at home). You can go to a McDonald's too and I think they have free wifi.

Get a classic. The Nanos are hideous, and the Touch is ridiculously on price (400 for 16 gigs is lame, WiFi or not).

My uncle's iPod is from the U.S and he uses it on his UK laptop so it should.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

Oh shut up. Standard statistics says that less than 1 in 20 iPods failed after a year, which is beyond statistical significance. I looked it up.

bitch.

And you don't need to pay monthly for wifi, you can basically mouch off of any wireless internet around you with it, which is free, unless you buy the internet that is.

The touch, while cool and interesting, costs a lot for just a cool factor. If it's worth it to you, go for it, i'd stick with a standard iPod.

Classic. Touch is relatively new, so it has a lot of bugs, and if you've seen 1 or 2 ipods die before, you wouldnt invest in such a machine like an iPhone or an iPod touch. The iPod (original) gives you a better bang for your buck, 30gbs for $250 isnt that bad right?

Edit: Also, the internet is a gimmick on the iPod touch/iPhone. It's too slow and browsing for a while hurts. So lame.

Get one of the old videos. I have heard that with all that pleasing aesthetic quality of the Classic comes an utterly slow function.

Save another 100 dollars and get an iPhone if you want those extra features.
Don't give in to this horrible new iPod.
I recommend a Nano.

well you're wrong. 60GB for $250.

the iPhone internet is as fast as your internet connection, dumbass.
and while you're out and about in the world, the iPhone is on the EDGE network.

About time someone recommended the Zune.
#34
i would recommend the zune as a good ipod alternative. i just got a white one the other day off of amazon.com for $160. i have an old nano and i love it, but i wanted something to hold more songs and play movies. theres a rumor that a new zune is going to be coming out sometime in october and that it will be 80 gig, just like the ipod classic and the same price ($250) as well as smaller zune to compete with the nano.
ipods and zune are both good, i just wanted something different.

Have you ever used an iphone?

Do you have to insult me because i dont think your favorite "gadget" is that good?

iPods are overrated and over-priced. But you could buy a previous generation 30 gig iPod for under $200 now. But I love my Creative player. Objectively better than iPod in several categories, including sound quality and video quality.
