Rant about iPods…

Hi folks, i’d just like to take a moment to rant about iPods. I use my iPod all the time, in my house, in my car, and at work. I buy all my music off of iTunes and love using it.

My rant comes down to the memory. I think it is the biggest cash grab by Apple not to allow removable memory. I have now maxed out my iPod and I have to buy a new one just to get more music on it. Now this is a good business plan I suppose if people really want to spend the money to get a new iPod but I really have better things to do with my money than buy a new iPod everytime I need more music than it can hold.

I bought the largest iPod touch I could find when it first came out and now there are larger ones and I’ll have to buy one again. This is just so annoying and I think they should seriously rethink how they do this. If they really wanted to lock people in they could have come up with some proprietary expandable storage like Sony did and then they would still make money off of it.  Anyways, that’s my 2 cents.
