"nobody special" No F-ing Way
All that hype for an MP3 player? Break-thru digital device? The Reality Distiortion Field™ is starting to warp Steve`s mind if he thinks for one second that this thing is gonna take off.
The iphone is crap! No ones gonna buy it! 500 bucks and you only get cingular!? WTF Apple needs to stick to computers and Ipods! This thing will never take off!
lol...see you in five years!
i cannot believe how stupid those comments were
i cannot believe how stupid thoes comments were
eating our words now aren`t we?
Yeah! I totally agree. One of my friends got drunk and baked their ipod in the oven and bught a new one. What a waste of money.
I own a Creative Zen, 5GB storage, only cost me $128. It records voice, plays radio, and (even though it seems rather useless) record radio, NONE of which the iPod do (unless you feel like buying extra accessories). It is fairly small for its size as well.
By comparison, a 2GB iPod Nano is $149, 4GB is $199.
Comparisons are a lot closer when you compare the iPods that can play video to the Creative counterparts. Of course, just like the iMac, the iPod only works with certain video files that it supports and is not very widely compatible.
So why does iPod cost more? Because it is trendy. No real human being uses iTunes, and no real human being would spend so much on a crappy iPhone (or iMac for that matter). Except maybe in the case of the iPhone, you are paying more for less, and in all cases paying too much.
I`m an American too, if that helps. Haha
Funny link none the less.
Sorry, I tell it like it is."
I`d rather save up for a house, but hey if you got the latest tunes from itunes onto your 4th (the other three broke) ipod then living on the streets might not be so bad. That is what I predict the future to be like. Lots of homeless people with ipods.
Red face iCan`t believe it!It`s now at the online Apple Store!
$400 for an Mp3 Player!
I`d call it the Cube 2.0 as it wont sell, and be killed off in a short time...and it`s not really functional.
Uuhh Steve, can I have a PDA now?
wow what a noob lol. i love my ipod
Heh, anyways anyone who goes on a apple/mac site must be quite dorky! :-D
Sorry, I tell it like it is.
I mean, look around you. EVERYONE has iPods now >_< [i want iPhone :O]
"iPoop... iCry. I was hoping for so much more."
"5gigs... **** yes..."
Back into the future?!?! BACK INTO THE PAST!!!!
20GB hard drive: $199 from APS tech.
MP3 player: $50 from Best Buy.
You save $150 plus get an extra 15 Gig of storage!"
I think he missed the poing of a *portable* music device.
Oh really? :-P
I just bought one of the new iPod shuffles (with my own money, I am not some spoiled rich kid), and I absolutely adore it. It`s so tiny and cute! :-)And I love iTunes. I tried Napster for a little while a few years ago, but not only could my dad and I not figure out how to get music on the player I bought (then returned), it was REALLY slow. I`m just glad I finally got one.
oh my god thats like realy realy old now i have itunes 7 ish
He got owned!
Lol, stupidest statement of 2001 finally found.
And convenience definitely sells.
Waste of money, they do sell well, but still a waste for what they do compared to what you pay.
(i pick on my friend Daniel, who has the original and a nano, all the time)
Hey, wait a minute...
iPods are stats symbols. Nothing more.
In my opinion I think ipods are terribly overrated, hugely overpriced for what they are and have just been marketed very cleverly. Personally, I`d much rather go for a Creative Zen.. I`ve had mine for 18months now and it`s not caused me an ounce of trouble.
And that`s not to mention what ipod has done to the way people see music nowadays. It`s not about listening to music you like. It`s about how many songs you can cram onto your ipod, whether you listen to them or not. Be honest.. who needs 10,000 songs stored on an ipod to accompany them a whole 10minute walk to work/school? You`ll only listen to 3, maybe 4 of them before you get there, and another 4 on the way home. Pointless.
I think it would be interesting to delve in to the archives here and see what people have said about "new" technologies.
If anything this should have taught people about a little humility and care in judgement.
Amen to that. Most ipods harddrives broke shortly after the warranty is up. To have Apple repair them it`s close to the price of buying a new one.
Looks functional to me. oh and guess what, 5 years of Ipod and they have advanced 10 fold, great job on predicting a WRONG future! XD
It`s very easy on a forum such as this to use the benefit of hindsight to laugh at others.
"hey - heres an idea Apple - rather than enter the world of gimmicks and toys, why dont you spend a little more time sorting out your pathetically expensive and crap server line up?or are you really aiming to become a glorified consumer gimmicks firm?"
Glorified consumer gimmicks firm all the way!
FWIW, these guys may sound like they missed the mark but the iPod launch was considered a failure for Apple.
