Definition 1 (proper noun): Apple's Crappy Popular and EXTREMELY Overpriced MP3 Player, that is very easy to break and costs at LEAST 3 times as much as something just as good. Also, it requires the equally crappy and restrictive iTunes player.

Definition 2 (noun): What stupid people call any MP3 Player
David: Yo, I got a 60GB iPod for only $850! It's way better what you got!
Sanjay: Shut up, I bought my 60GB Creative for $200!
David(Feeling Regretful): Oh...

D-Roc: Yo wassup my homie G! I gots me-self one-o-those iPod thingies, not dem MP3's!!!!
Dr. Dre: Shut up moron! #1, it's MP3 Player (not MP3), #2, iPod is an MP3 Player!

What is an iPod? It's a little piece of metal that you plug headphones into and listen to music. I remember when I was seven and we had a device that achieved the same goal - a Discman. You can buy them nowadays for ... ohhh ... somewhere around the proximity of zero dollars. Discmans worked fine back in the day. Now that there is better technology, all of a sudden Discmans are worthless. But why? Discmans never got worse, technology got better. Worthless technology. The concept is to listen to music with no strings attached. Discmans accomplish this just fine.

The iPod is capable of holding 10,000 songs. Who the fucking hell needs that much? Of the 80 million+ iPod owners in the world, how many have maxed out the space? Only about 14. Merely fourteen people have successfully filled their iPod. And strangely enough, all of these kids were in the same room at the same time. It was at the annual GROTEFP (Geekiest Rejects on the Entire Fucking Planet) convention.

So you like iPods because they're smaller than CD players? That's reasonable, but how much is it worth to you to shave off a few precious inches? The iPod ends up being ten square inches smaller than the average portable CD player. That means a total of about three inches squared.

It's only three inches. That's tiny, and for three hundred dollars? Penis enlargment pills offer you an extra three inches, and they're only $40-$50. Now honestly, would you rather have three inches less of audio player or a Discman and huge dick? Size wouldn't even matter then because you could just hang the player from your enormous cock.

Now that the size issue is settled, perhaps a Discman isn't the answer because you require more than 3 seconds of anti-skip. Oh, wait! Discmans nowadays don't skip! Ever. That can't be what makes up for the drastic difference in money.

The iPod can hold 10,000 songs. The Discman uses CDs which hold usually up to 20 songs. Perhaps you don't want to carry 100 CDs everywhere you go. Oh, wait! Discmans play mp3s now! That's like 100 songs per CD! And unlike an iPod that maxes out at 10,000, Discmans have a removable source. So if we have 100 songs per CD and potentially infinite CDs, that's ... umm ... 100 infinity songs?

iPods have rechargable batteries, but so does Ace Hardware store. A bunch of new technology and impressive statistics really don't mean much. When it comes down to it, an iPod isn't that great. So why could it possibly cost so much more money than Discmans, mini disk players, and cheaper mp3 players?
By buying an iPod, you're buying into a trend. You are paying hundreds of dollars to be a part of the new big thing and attempting to buy approval. This means one of two things:

1) you don't already have a big thing,

or 2) you're stuck at the pre-adolescent stage of thinking having what someone want makes them your friend. Get a clue and get something else with your parent's Christmas fund.

A portable hard disk with the capabilities for playing music files, and viewing photo's(except for the shuffle). It can play music, save photo's, get scrathed up in a day, cause more errors on your computer than a goddamn nuclear holocaust, have a dead battery in 2 hours(rather than the advertised 15!), make you bankrupt all whilst Apple is making an assload of cash. The ONLY reason they are popular is because of the advertisements appealing to blacks, posers, "punk" rock lovers, and rich people. Nowadays, thoses people make up about 96% of society. Seriously (and not to sound like a smartass), if you know anything about the workings of technology, you will know that an iPod is worth well less than half of what it is sold for. Apple makes too much profit off of them.
ipod user-man i love my 400$ 60gb ipod.
creative user-Damn! did they suck your dick first?
ipod user-No,why.
creative user-cuz thats twice what i got my Creative zen for, and my battery last 4 times as long. Plus mine won't break like yours just did by attempting to put a .wma file on it.
iPod user-Oh well. chicks think i'm rich when i have my white and grey headphones on.

ipods are devices used to listen to music. they are small, lightweight, easy to use, and very convenient. but, like all things, it has drawbacks. indeed, they are pricey, they do get scratched easily, and don't live up to the advertised battery life. But if you love music like i do and have an extremely large CD collection, they are the one of the most convenient electronic devices ever. The 30gb model(i own one) even plays music videos and movies. You can buy an fm adapter so you can listen wherever you drive, too. You can schedule events and set alarms to remind you of things. You can watch Sin City or that really hot Shakira video, all with one small gadget. The main drawback, however, is that they are now the "flavor of the week", so people who are NOT seeking to be cool/trendy, are mistakenly put in that group when they are seen with white earbuds.
I mean, come on... when you think about it, ipods kick ass.

Popular by advertisement, an MP3 player, with the ability to read AAC, Mp3 and much more. Only possible drawbacks are: 1)insanely high price for an mp3 player, 2)Low battery life compared to otehr mp3 players, 3)Not so great starter earphones,4) Having to use iTunes. If you are a music pirate, then an iPod doesnt make a sound qulity difference, however, if you DO purchase music legally, then ripping ur cd's to AAC format will be better sound quality.
Creative Users: I can listen to 10 DAYS worth of DECENT music, how bout you iPod?
iPod users: I can listen to 10 HOURS of GREAT music!
Pirate: Yaaaaaaaaaaaar.....
