Was about to say that. Even though you could because the Classic lets you, no one ever used it for movies (I don't think even music videos or any kinda short video) because of how small the screen was. So not sure how it actually worked if anyone did try.

I can tell you that it worked great for the film I put on it, except for the whole tiny screen problem.

It was exactly like the Album Art Cover Flow feature Apple introduced on the iPhone. The only time you ever really used it.... was to show people that it could do that.

Yeah I guess so.

I suppose the iPods would've been a lot more expensive if the screen was as large as the device? Because it certainly seems the technology was already there. The classic case is only a little smaller than my old iPhone 4. Not that I particularly enjoy watching movies on that size screen either, I must admit!

I like my SanDisk mp3 player. It's cheap and I think I have a 32 gb card in it. More than my ipod. Cheaper too. I think 30 Bucks? I like this for running. I am afraid of dropping or losing the phone. Also, hard to hold.

I just got a Sony a-15 on discount and it seems amazing. Besides, I own a few of the old Sansas. Everyone of those has expandable storage.

Streaming if fine, but I prefer actually having my favorite music with me. I don't see streaming and downloading as mutually exclusive.
