New iPod crew: 'Phoney, futuristic, retro, doomed'

Apple admits error shock

High performance access to file storage

iPod classic

Steve Jobs made nary a mention of the venerable iPod classic in his Wednesday presentation, but the 160GB hard drive–based iPod was mentioned in each of the new iPods' press releases as still being a member of the family, and the big boy is still available on Apple's online store for $249.

With the iPod touch topping out at 64GB, there's still a need for an iPod that'll satisfy music lovers who perfer to keep all — or, in hard-core cases, just a sizeable amount — of their music collections on a single device.

But 128GB flash-RAM innards should become iPoddable by the end of this year, so don't expect to see the iPod classic on store shelves too much longer. After all, you can't slip the Apps Store a few bucks to play Hero of Sparta nor Predators on it — and Cubis 2 is beginning to look more retro than even a fourth-generation iPod shuffle. ®
