amp over ipod or ipod over amp?

I have an ipod touch, jailbroken, but the new one cant be JBed yet

And they olny come in 8,16,32 gigs

But if your into more features and stuff go with the touch, but if you need storage space go with the 120G classic or whatever

you're thinking of Christmas already?!

Get the amp and save for the iPod. I'm sure there's some stuff you can delete from your current iPod to make room for new songs.

ye i'm pretty sure i am going to get the amp for xmas, but getting the money for the ipod is the problem. i have a 2gb 1st gen ipod nano btw so its is OLD.

i only have a 15watt fender frontman that came with my guitar so it is nowhere near good enough for my standard.

I agree. Practice makes perfect...

Amp over an ipod, if you're really concerned with fitting more songs on the ipod, lower the bitrate.

Edit.

Lower the bitrate; untill you can afford a better ipod, anyway.

If black people can steal big plasma TVs, then you can steal an amp.

Why don't you grow up. The country is in a recession and you want "Santa Claus" to buy you a new amp? Why don't you get a job and give the money to your parents who are about to be unemployed instead of being selfish.

It's going to be hard to play that amp in the homeless shelter.

Grow up junior.

god, calm down. just because you are old enough to have a full time job doesnt mean you have to shit on younger people.

and btw, i probably don't live in the same country as you. and even though there is a credit crunch my dad isnt unemployed

Dude, relax. Maybe he's not old enough to get a job yet?

Anways, I'd go with an amp (atleast that's what I'm saving for). Also, I have the 1st gen 1 GB nano :p. Use the ipod untill it breaks.

get the ipod, and porn, preferably if it has naked girls in it, or an ipod touch were you can watch porn,
porn is awesome i recommend it
#33
Go for the ipod classic. No big screen so no drain on the battery plus way more room for music. It's not about the looks it's about the quality and functionality. But if you already have an ipod it makes sense to go for the better amp.
