iPod Death Clock

On October 17, 2007, in General, by Neil Stevens

If the iPod Death Clock is to be believed, I have 449 days until I need to have a replacement lined up for my iPod Nano. I hope that’s a conservative estimate, because I’ve beeen poking around and I’m having a hard time finding a non-Apple player that plays AAC.

Why not just buy Apple again? I don’t want to. Apple is at that stage of the iPod’s life that they still have market power, but they know it’s about to dwindle, so they’re starting to tighten the grip just like Grand Moff Tarkin, squeezing out every last dollar they can by taking control of the user as tightly as they can. And I’m just not interested in being completely locked down, thank you.
