The iPod is an enigma in both terms of success and controversy; some customers find the product unreliable and the battery difficult to change where as others praise its simple design and ease of use. An example of its design would be the touch-sensitive wheel that allows you to easily select an artist, album or track intuitively and at speed.
People who dislike the iPod often quote that it's over-priced, unreliable and that most people cannot use the storage space - this is mostly true for any similar device on the market, although the perceived lack of reliability of any popular product will doubtlessly be driven by how vocal disappointed individuals are. The most dumbfounding claim is that you can only use music bought from iTunes and that the software is difficult and unreliable to use. There are many third-party applications that work with an iPod, and the player supports many codecs. Should you try and transfer an unsupported codec, iTunes will automaticlly convert it - obviously you do not have to have purchased your music from iTunes to have it in your library.
iPod is a victim of its own success.
People have an obsession with iPod.
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.
"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"
