Soooo, if you haven't heard, they are discontinuing the iPod Classic. This is a disaster. I have a ton of music, and I want to put all my music on my device, because I may not know what I want to listen to on any given day. Some days it's classical - and some days it's a specific kind of classical. Or it might be soundtracks, or new music, or music from high school and college, or oldies, or classic rock, or WHO KNOWS. I NEED ALL THESE OPTIONS AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES.
I also like not having to charge my device every day/every other day.
I also like just being able to use a scroll wheel, instead of having to actually look at my device, unlock a screen, go through apps and programs, etc.
I JUST WANT A REGULAR IPOD THAT JUST PLAYS MUSIC AND DOES NOTHING ELSE.
I mean, I have an iPod Classic, but it's about six years old, and who knows. Anything could happen. I could drop it tomorrow. It could freeze and I might not be able to reboot it. I could spill coffee on it. (That has the greatest likelihood.) The little port for the plug-in might get a little bent thing in it or something. ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN.
So I needed to buy another one. But it's not available to just buy online because reasons, and my local stores don't have any available, so I just bought one to pick up in-store at a Target like an hour away and it says my order went through but I will not believe it until I get my confirmation "your item is ready to pick up!" email and even then I will need to have it in my hands.
I hate you, Apple.
ETA: UGH I JUST GOT AN EMAIL THAT IT'S NOT AVAILABLE AT THAT LOCATION. CHANGING MY PICK-UP LOCATION. SO HELP ME GOD.
ETA 2: Okay it's available and ready for pick up at the other location, which is even farther away. Blessings on that Target's family, blessings on that Target's cow.
