Guess what?


It’s already 8 PM here, so the week is pretty much over. Weekend? Yeah, sort of. I still got a lot to do during the weekend, though.

Like, maybe, finishing the guide to dreaming? It’s coming along nicely, and I think I crossed the halfway mark today. Will probably finish it tomorrow. You’ll just have to wait patiently ’till then! ;D

By the way, you know the 6.5 I got for Dutch literature history? When we discussed the test, I noticed the teacher counted one of my answers as wrong, while it actually was correct. Gave me an extra point, and my new note is a nice 6.8. It isn’t much, but hey, all little bits help!

Blah, I’m being all over the place again. But who cares?
Well, screw that, I have a serious question for you guys.

I currently own a 16GB 2nd gen iPod Touch, and my music library has recently hit the 20 gigs mark, and is quickly increasing in size. So I’ve been thinking… About getting myself a new iPod.
I am, however, having a hard time making the choice between a new iPod Touch, and get a 64GB one, or getting an iPod Classic, which has a whopping 120GB of disk space.
Why am I pondering? Well, I use my iPod Touch, a lot. Not only for music, but also for browsing the internet, making quick notes, alarm clock, and a few games (not a major iPod gamer though). Now, I find it kind of… not very handy to have two iPods with me: one for music, one for the things I just mentioned.
Okay, I’m being kind of weird, and I can just throw my favorites onto my iPod Touch, but that’d still leave two iPods for music, and I tend to listen to music a lot of the time.

Pfffft, I’m making no sense. It’s been a long, tiring week, so I probably should get some rest. let me try and finish this, though.

So, problem being, I actually want a new iPod Touch, but compared to a Classic, it’s damn expensive. I could, of course, find me a cheap 2nd hand 3rd gen, but 64 gigs is still the underdog comaped to 120 gigs the Classic offers me…

So, ideas? Opinions? Help? Tips? Get ’em coming please!

    Classic is fantastic for just storing and listening to music, you’ll always have space but, that’s all I wanted my iPod for, if you want to carry on with your internet/games/notes thing I’d get something different, but in the long run, Classic is fantastic and worth getting just for music.

    We all love the weekend. As for the iPod situation you’ve got to look at it this way; an iPod touch is like having an iPhone without the obvious features but a classic is like having a record shop in your pocket. If you have enough music I’d go for the classic.

    I have 8GB memory in my music player and a bit larger library on my PC. However I found out, that a large part of the library are pieces that I listen to once and never again. So after a bit of a cleanup I’m able to get everything I want on my player, no need for more capacity.

    I think the pro/con lists would help you. I don’t know much about iPods =/

    Ipod was such a simple idea that made alot of money.

    Dutch Literature History, eh? Sounds interesting, if you like weird people that eat strange things and ruined carrots. ;)

    I have a 32gb ipod touch. I use it for web browsing, and my brother for gaming or checking his facebook.
    For music I always use my cellphone, I don’t have that much music anyway, and I change the songs, every week.

    I’m wit this ^ guy. I have the same ipod loaded with more music than I could ever need to listen to on it. I love it.

    Don’t know what to tell you. Make a pro/con list and see what you get for the given price.

    idk why but even though i love music i have never gotten much use from my ipod idk whats wrong with me

    I’ve got a 120g Classic, and I use it as an external hard drive. I have to say, recently I’ve had some issues with mine since I use both a Mac and a PC, and it doesn’t seem to like that.

    I have had a 120gb Ipod Classic for over a year now. I use it almost exclusively for music and movies and it works perfectly. If you want the browser/games your gonna have to go with the touch though.
