If you tuned into the [#protected_0#], we covered the Apple Holiday gift guide but when it came to the topic of iPods we found some of them still had a place in the world. Some, like the iPod Touch were easy recommendations while others, like the iPod Classic we had a tough time suggesting.
Looking back on it, it reminds me of a thread I came across the iMore Forums asking a similar question but placing the whole iPod category itself at the center with the question being, is the iPod a dying product?

Seattle, Washington – Coffee Lovers Magazine is all about the love and experience of coffee – about the lifestyle inherent in the local cafe, and in having coffee with friends. We bring to you cool videos about coffee, reviews of coffee, coffee machines and tools, interviews with folks in the coffee industry, and much more through the digital newsstand experience on the iPad and iPhone.
Coffee Lovers Magazine is a digital periodical publication, available as an app through Apple’s Newsstand on iTunes. The magazine features helpful articles, videos, art, stories, interviews, photos, and more, designed for anyone who identifies as a lover of coffee.
There is a big gap between the common experience of coffee (through chain coffee shops and grocery stores) and the world of speciality coffee. Coffee Lovers Magazine attempts to provide a bridge between those worlds, for people who love coffee but may not be familiar with the nuances of coffee and how enriching the experience can be. The newest version, which brings the magazine to the iPhone, has increased the reach of the magazine by over 65% – providing an easy to read, enjoyable magazine experience on more devices.
The magazine has been reaching coffee lovers on their iPads in over 100 countries around the world, and now reaches even further by coming to the iPhone and iPod touch.

stars aligning towards the retirement of the faithful iPod classic?” class=”image-large aligncenter” title=”Are the stars aligning towards the retirement of the faithful iPod classic?” />
The iPod classic; loved the world over by folks who have the overwhelming desire to keep their whole music collection in their pockets. But how long is it for this world? iMore community member sdreelin asked himself the same question, to the point where he ended up buying another while he still can:
He hit a pretty solid point there, too. Along with the iPhone 4 and 4S, the iPod classic is the last of the 30-pin devices, Even the iPod touch range has now been completely upgraded to Lightning. The much rumored ‘budget’ iPhone if a legitimate product could spell the end of the 4S – that’s assuming the 4S would have been reduced to the role of ‘budget’ option as the 4 and 3GS both have been before it. This along with the expected retirement of the iPhone 4 would leave the classic as the last of the dying breed. If it even stayed alive at all.
Also, as much as those who love the classic, love it a lot and for very specific reasons, Apple is moving away from this ‘old’ way of doing things. With iTunes Match and iTunes in the cloud – even the forthcoming iTunes Radio – we’re seeing where the future of Apple’s music offerings lie – somewhere the classic can’t join in. There’s still a lot to be said for having an iPod that just plays music, and lots of it, but the chances of it receiving a Lightning upgrade like the rest of the range are pretty slim at best.
Hopefully we’ll see other high capacity options in the future; 128GB iPod touch and iPhone models would be great. But to some, there will be no replacing the old 160GB iPod classic. If you’re going to ever want one though, it’s maybe not a horrible idea to think about picking one up sooner rather than later.
What do you think about the iPod classic? Think it’ll stick around for another term, or be put out to pasture at the next batch of product refreshes?
