it’s all that slovakian midget porn.

Here’s what the salesguy said to me when I bought my 120GB iPod:

“I don’t know anyone who can actually fill up an iPod classic.”

Here’s my current iPod status:

    I have 18tb of storage here, 98% full.

    I have 40 cores with an average tick of 3GHz here.

    I have a 20Mb fibre pipe which averages 58% capacity, which is sure to spike hard when the movie gig starts in the next couple weeks, or when the Bletchley Park docu I’m working on takes off.

    *blank look*

    Wingman Mine, I am not your average man. Why would I give a shit what he thinks? I know Democracy is there for the benefit of the most… but I am not the most.

    *wry grin*

    As long as they leave me the fuck alone, they can have all the demographics they like.

    I’ve actually got about 3 more gigs of music than you. But I can’t even imagine carrying that much video around on my 80GB iPod Classic. It’s just not that enjoyable for me to watch stuff on that tiny little screen.

      I actually mostly watch video in iTunes on the PC’s big LCD, but I’m one of those weirdos who want to have their iPod sync their entire media library without having to selectively pick playlists.

    yeah. I just got a 120, having finally filled the 80 (with music only. the screen is too small to watch movies, and I like avis, while apple doesn’t). I don’t know why they decided to stop making them bigger. I’m pretty sure I’ll have 120 gig of mp3s within three or so years. If I ever go lossless, I’m going to need a really big ipod.

  4. Not sure how much bigger you’d be looking for, but I know the Classic used to have 160 gigabytes instead of 120. I haven’t a clue as to why they downsized.

    Can I meet that salesman? Is that standard Apple “Genius” training? I could throw that guy for a loop.

    Don’t know anyone who could fill it? Hand me your biggest iPod and I’ll have it full as fast as I can transfer data onto it and still have stuff leftover. Music and video, need I say more? And that’s with my compact video encoding (180-250MB per movie vs. 400-550MB on older encodes). Toss a few hundred CDs on top of that and 160GB falls like a chastity belt after the Knights leave for a crusade.

    Salesmen should never issue challenges like that. There’s always someone out there who can meet it. Media junkies are dangerous.

    I’ve got a 160GB Classic (before Apple made the asinine move to reduce top capacity!). 107GB is music, 14GB video (out of about 130GB on my hard drive), and 27.3GB free. I’m a heavy classical music listener, and I don’t even have my full collection ripped right now. Yes, please, bigger iPod!

    But no one will ever need more than 640K of RAM, right?

    Finally someone who appreciates the high quality midget porn produced in my old country. It’s the number two export commodity over there, number one being (of course) goat cheese.

    Slovakian midget porn?
    I can’t even google any… so it probably doesn’t exist.

    Please, my nation deserves obscurity, as it is a charming little cesspool* of corruption, demagoguery that’ll probably go the way of Detroit in the next ten years.

    In the future, write “Eastern European”, “Transylvanian”.. or any suitable term US-born Americans use. We don’t need more publicity, not with the way our Patriot drunkard party is stealing EU funds right now.

    *we have something like 3000 km^2 of pretty nice hills though. And a dozen mountains.

    The salesman has obviously never met a real music collector.

    My 160gb Archos is full and contains about 7% of my total collection so I have to rotate the stuff on there every few months. And that’s all mp3, no video files taking up tons of space, about 1.1tb of classical and 1.3tb of pop/jazz/rock/etc.

    Archos now makes a 320gb player, which I may upgrade to at some point, but since all of my music is already converted to mp3 it’s pretty easy to rotate stuff.

    I also have a small western digital 320gb portable drive which I use to play music through the computer at my office.

    When Grampa built his first computer back in da daze o’ 1987 it had 16K of RAM and a 10M HDD. Top o’ the line stuff-
    And we neither ever worried about filling up that massive hard drive nor ever did.
    Life without Windows, Office, pics, vids and music was different a little my chilldrun
