Did you know, current iPods can hold the same amount of music as 2000 cassette tapes?

They were thinking, no-one wants hard-drive based storage anymore because its harder on batteries, bigger, louder and is more easily damaged due to jolts when the hard-drive is reading or writing. Especially when you`re reading and writing to disk all the time like you would when using an ipod touch/iphone as opposed to hitting up a list of songs and then leaving the drive alone for a while (which is how the classic works)

r3tr0r0ck3r: iPod Classics have an actual HD in them, while iPod Touches and iPhones (as with the smaller iPods) have flash drives or something similar.

Although flash drives and similar technologies do have an amazing storing capacity it is still nowhere near as HDs` capacities.

Funny how the iPod Classic has a much much larger memory than any of the iPod touch models, including the new one. What were Apple thinking??

It would only take 259 tapes to capture ALL of Hulu? I thought their library was bigger than that...

"US$20,000 seems like a fair ballpark figure to legally buy that much audio."
Sad, isn`t it? :P

And how much would it cost to legally fill a modern high-capacity audio player? They`re stating 2000 hours of audio. US$20,000 seems like a fair ballpark figure to legally buy that much audio.

And now-a-days you can buy a 2TB harddrive for under $100 and make that MacBook look like the dumbest buy ever.

Betardfooser, if an atomic bomb dropped, I don`t think your music collection on vinyl would survive, or be your biggest worry...

also compare the data integrety:
cavemen paintings (Altamira): lasted 30,000 years
chiseled stone (BC): may last 10,000th of years
midival books: may last 1,000th of years (ink is acidic)
modern books (past 19th century): about 100 to 200 years (wood based paper is acidic)
pianola rolls, vinyl records, film and foto: ware out, but may be still readable for some time, equipment is low tech and widly available
digital storage like disquettes, cds, dvds, etc:
wares out, equopment becomes obsolet; data loss to be expected in years or decades

@IkeRay: rofl, you really don`t get it do you?

10 million x 100 = 1 billion
10 million x 1000 = 10 billion
10,000,000 plus the three zero`s from 1000 make 10,000,000,000

IkeRay, it explains in plain english: "Take a typical photo album, 50 pages, 2 photos a page"

That = 100 pics (10,000,000 photo albums with 100 pics each = 10 billion).

looks like someone isn`t aware that computer hard drives store their data the same way cassette tapes do, were still in the days of physical storage, until the next breakthrough with flash memory

Technically, music storage on the iPod is wrong. It will hold that much, yes, but in lower quality (192 kbps and below) and with only with an average of about 4 minutes per song. You want quality such as 320 kbps or a .wav file, with a longer average time per song (say full length dance songs), and the storage goes WAY down.
