I would rather still use my Classic for music. Yes I still use Spotify for music (technically some of my music because a lot is still not on Spotify yet), so its better to use iPod for that reason (one reason) - some music you can't get on Spotify so I would need to download off of Amazon, or buy the CD for. The 2nd reason is that for music that I can get from Spotify, I can't bring it to a lot of areas because it doesn't work because of the connection - it can't connect to WIFI so I need something else to play the music on, which would be iPod.

MP3 players are a thing of the past, like CD's, DVD's etc. but they still have their use I guess.

If you want to not rely on Wifi or Cellular data, add storage to your phone, oh wait you can't add storage to Apple can you?

I think what sucks most about using Apple devices for music is Itunes. That is the main problem.

With android (or regular MP3 players), you connect it to your PC, copy the songs over that you want and you are done.
Better yet, get a device (not Apple) that supports expandable storage, load up your sd card, plug it in you are done.

Here's an MP3 player for $23, expandable to 128mb
https://www.amazon.com/MYMAHDI-Porta...3+player&psc=1

There are many more available.

Apple is the brand of the ipod (like how they have Apple iPhones), so non-Apple ipods would be any thats not Apple brand.

theres no such thing as non-apple ipods (the same way there are no creative zens/sony walkmans/sansa clips/... made by apple -- theyd be sued for trademark infringement).

He's talking about the knockoffs that look like and act similar to a Apple product.

Outside of using my smartphone, I also purchase disposable smartphones for around $10 to use as mp3 players (none actually require you to activate phone service).

Obsolete technology report: I went to Goodwill Electronics store this weekend, where they sometimes have some real steals. I got a little stereo speaker/radio with an iPod dock (and no bluetooth!) for $6.

Since I, too had a dusty iPod, it's kind of nice seeing it work again. It looks good in the kitchen, and the iPod is also a backup of my iTunes songs.

Question: did people really ever watch movies on these iPod classics? It will let me put them on there, but the screen is sooo tiny!
