A very simple, easy to use music player. People often enjoy bashing on them saying other brands have x
more features such as radio, voice recorder etc. Most people don't need all that BS and it makes things more complicated. The iPod sells very well because it does something very well, play music, and offers a very good user experience. The FM thing is really dumb, why would you need FM radio on your mp3 player, when in fact, it IS an MP3 PLAYER! Don't you want to play MP3's?? That's like buying a CD player so you can listen to the radio, wtf?
Also, it's true you pay the premium for an iPod for it's very nice aesthetic design. It's obviously superior than any other plastic piece of garbage. Everything else simply feels cheap, and looks cheap, and is packaged in tacky packaging. All of those combined give the iPod an excellent out of the box experience, and it feels nice in the palm of your hand.
iPod Owner: I love my iPod, it's so smooth and works great, although my hard drive ended up failing i'll simply drop it by the Apple Store, since I'm not cheap and actually bought an additional 2 years of service for it, they'll take care of it right away and I'll probably get a refurb immediately.
Creative Owner: Hey look! My ZEN makes creaky noises when you squeeze it!! Sweet! OH shit i broke it... :(
Thw world's smallest form of penis compensation.
Make sure you wear your white headphones everywhere you go while struting around in your tight pants and white belt while listening to the latest Hawthorne Heights song. Who cares if you have no class or taste, you're cool.
I bought one of these with my saved money. iPods are a waste of space on earth.
1. It holds more songs than anyone will ever own in their lives.
2. It says 12 hour battery life, but lasts for dick hours
3. Limited rechargeable battery - there are only a certain amount of charges you can use and then you have to pay a bazillion dollars for a new god damn battery.
4. Covering scratches easily, and if you don't want the screen to look like a cat was trying to find drugs in it, you have to buy a 50 dollar rubber case that yellows with time.
5. So overpriced for such a piece of shit. $420.00 CDN for it alone, and then a 3-year warranty which bumped it up to $508.00.
Seriously. Go die, Apple.
"Holy crap, you have an iPod! That's so cool! How many songs does it hold?"
"How many do you have on it?"
"Why the shit did you get a 20 GB then"
"........I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you"
Everything wrong with western society contained within a small media player.
Person A: OMG, dude! I just bought an ipod!
Person B: What, on purpose?

a topic on urbandictionary.com that has been used to discuss the pros and cons of ipods between viewers. Besides it is too expensive and the only reason it has more sales than any other is because people are stupid
