iPod Classic for RVfolk

Why not the iPod touch with all its bells and whistles?

 160 GB is why!

If you are a crusty old Hippy, (like I am), you have thousands of songs you have redigitized onto you computer from your vast CD collection, (Yes, I still have my vinyl safely tucked away)....

You also, (I hope), have digitally converting you DVD's onto your computer too...(see article here about how I did this)

Then there are those videos you've made of your "Great RV Journey" in the bush and of those videos of your precious Grandchildren you hardly ever get to see now that you are on the road.

This adds up to some HUGE files, waaay too big for the iPod touch!

Product Features

  • 160 GB capacity for 40,000 songs, 25,000 photos, or 200 hours of video
  • Up to 36 hours of music playback or 6 hours of video playback when fully charged
  • 2.5-inch color LCD with LED backlight and 320 x 240 pixel resolution
  • Supports AAC, Protected AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible, Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV audio formats

The iPod Touch is an 8/16GB iPod with the huge screen and multi-touch technology,'s storage size is far too small for the buck.

You can store your ALL digital files on the iPod Classic and bore everyone in shouting distance of your amazing collection of travel tripe without running out of storage space to do so!!

By The way...

The "touch" is actually a disabled iphone, so the answer is easy if you just have to have one, BUY THE iPHONE, cruise the net and make some calls too at the same time.

Some extra notes:

Some of us old folks don't like buy some comfortable headphones and take your music to an even better sounding level...

Some complain of the iPod Classics small screen compared to the iPod Touch, it doesn't bother me, anything under a 54" diagonal TV screen is small to me, if I want to watch TV, I'll do so...The iPod Classic is for "portable" files for listening to while you wait for you Doctor, do your laundry, or while attend events with spouses that truly don't interest you, (my husband likes car auctions, amazing how wonderful they are if you walk around with a headset on watching and listening to "Oklahoma!").

Here's some quick links to these products from Amazon, iPod, Sony Headphones(the best for us old folk) and a dock w/remote control you can hook your iPod to your stereo and listen to BIG sound! A simple FM transmitter is what I use to transfer iPod sound to my truck stereo, no wiring our expensive adapters, (it also charges your iPod)! All of these products I own and heartily endorse!

Good points...and I agree with you about the earbuds. Those suckers HURT!!

Just wondering about a problem I'm having with your page. The first couple of comments always display on top of the ending of your post (the part that says "you might also like...). I am using 64 bit IE, with Windows7 OS. Wondered if anyone else is having this problem or is it just me??

Must have been just something with my browser...looks fine now. Isn't that the way...

Donna: Yes, I've seen these blogger pages do some strange things, if anything appears wrong, or things are blank, reloading usually fixes the problem!
Ear buds don't sound as good as our "old fashioned" head phones, I can't believe people would let fashion dictate their sound quality!
