While the world is clamoring the emergence of new iPhones, I’m mourning the end of the iPod Classic generation. What an era.
Renfield the iPod is an 80GB classic, in black of course, and I live in fear of him breaking. Partially because, hello, all my music on a portable device, but mostly because Renfield was a group birthday present from friends, and there’s a message engraved on the back that makes me smile every time I look at it.
(This post reminds me, I have new music to sync to Renfield.)
Mephisto was my classic, then Diablo replaced them. I had to try and hunt down a new case that fit my criteria recently and it made me so sad to find nothing.
I can operate a click wheel without looking at it. I like keeping my eyes up when I’m walking. I put it on and the battery lasts for MUCH longer than on my phone. I work to music.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my iPhone 5 to bits, but I’ve had something with a click wheel since the first iPod Nanos came out and I got one on my fourteenth birthday. (I was the cool kid of the bus that morning. Seriously.) And I don’t think I will ever give up having one, even if I keep having to find them off eBay.
I still have my pink iPod mini with a click-wheel (bought from Costco as all good technology is). Praying it will hang on for a while longer…
Reading this article on IPs (so INFPs, INTPs, ISTPs, and ISFPs) and relationship challenges and this came up: ‘Rather than meeting their obligations, IPs may burn time watching television, surfing the Internet, or playing video games as a means of distraction. Such behaviors serve to soothe or stave off feelings of anxiety associated with directly facing and participating in life.’
