    So I was thinking--why do people always go back to Apple, and get iPods?

    I realize iPods are freaking awesome, but like think back to before they were as popular as they are now...
    Why did you chose to buy an iPod over..a Creative Zen, a Zune, or a Sansa?

    Why when your iPod broke, did you buy another iPod, or upgrade your iPod?

    BTW:
    I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT IPOD TOUCH AND HACKING!

    Just curious to see people's responses =D

    i think one factor is because the ipod is just simply designed.

    but very elegant, and convenient too.

    just my opinion.

    Oh, no, didn't mean it that way.
    I think you can't reply to that thread now, anyways.

    I meant it in some sort of input of what people think.
    Keep going with this thread

    Truth be told, I never wanted to get one. My 1st gen shuffle was a gift. My bro got the very first one that was released. I thought they would never make it as far as they have today. But I fell in love with the shuffle, then my nano, now my 2g

    oh aha okay

    shuffle? for real?

    another thing:
    iPods seem to break ALOT...
    I have a friend who went through like 8 or 9 iPods. but she still goes back to iPod...

    I have gone from Mini to Video to Nano to Touch
    Mini ran out of room...Video screne cracked...sold nano for touch (only had nano for 2 months lol i got owned).

    Ya the shuffle lol. I wanted something that was small, portable, and had enough songs to get me through my school day and have enough battery to last that long. The shuffle fit the bill perfectly.
