Why do iPods suck?
  • The fact that they've steamrolled the entire industry, making it impossible to enjoy any functionality on a radio, in a car, on a portable speaker system, etc. No one exists outside of Apple.
  • iTunes, which is not mandated to be used, is bloatware and most people that have iPods don't realize that it's not the ONLY option. And god forbid you buy anything from the iTunes store, the DRM there is enough to make anyone pirate music
  • You have to take video and fuck with it to try and get it on the iPod. Other video players, like the Creative Zen, can take damn near anything in a standard format (divx, xvid, etc) and play it
  • Apple support is disgusting and the horror stories I've heard from countless people have supported that statement. It's a clusterfuck when you're trying to get a broken iPod fixed. And even if you buy an extended warranty with a big box store, they are OBLIGATED to ship it back to Apple.
  • They're the Gap of MP3 players.


I'm not trying to hate on iPods, even though it seems otherwise with what I've written above, but eh, you asked.

I agree with these, for SURE. Not to mention that iPods have fewer functions they're still priced higher than other mp3 players.

iTunes is the devil. FACT.

Is it weird to anyone that I've never bought even a single song from a pay-for-music site?

I have an ipod nano. I like it.

And, no - it's not weird, I don't pay for movies or tv shows either ...


... well, except for a couple of seasons of Survivor

I'm not anti-apple so much as anti-establishment. I refuse to be handcuffed to a player that restricts what I can put on it and how I get it.

My first mp3 player was a no-name POS that broke within weeks. Luckily no-harm done, it was before I got into podcasts sos I didnt have to freak out and go on a killing spree or nothin.

I picked up a sansa cheapie for my daughter at xmas (neat lil player btw, and cheap as chips) and aI got myself a Creative Zen 4GB for myself. The ZENcast organizer software that came with it turned me onto podcasts and KATG. I love the lil bugger. Credit card sized audio/video with great software (and would support itunes if i so chose.. i don't). I've not run out of space on it yet as I don't keep old content but I could add a SD card whenever needed.

I think they are around 100 clams now. Very worth it.
