The Trendliest

A Friendly Guide To The Latest Trends

Apple’s 3rd Gen iPod is on Fire!

Hey trend fans, your friendly neighborhood trend spotter, here to tell you what’s trendy now! Everyone knows retro is really hot. Most people are positively smitten with the 70’s, ecstatic about the 80’s, and totally nuts about the 90’s. However, here at “The Trendliest” we’re positively bonkers for the 00’s. In a world where we reminisce about last week, what’s wrong with being nostalgic for a product that came out in 2003? Answer, absolutely nothing! That’s why we’re singing the praises of our 3rd generation iPod.


Apple’s 3rd Generation iPod…or as I like to call it Old Trendy Reliable

Way back in ’03 you couldn’t fling a discman without hitting someone toting around one of these ancient devices and bouncing to Beyonce while ignoring oncoming pedestrian traffic. They weren’t watching a movie because these babies didn’t have that capability yet. How quaint. They did however have a shuffle feature, a backlight and great games like Brick, Music quiz, Solitaire, and Parachute that made a revolutionary game like Pong seem like Asteroids, but with a soundtrack of R.E.M’s “Radio Free Europe” or whatever you might be listening to at the time in the background.

The problem with today’s iPods is that they’ve got so much you can do. You can watch a movie, play a game, browse photos or listen to your favorite album. With all of those options it’s a wonder that users of the current iPod incarnation even have time to think. Maybe if I had one of my own I might think differently but the latest iPod Classic doesn’t jibe with my Mac OSX Version 10.3.9, alienating this user. That’s fine by me though because simple comforts are back in style and I’ll take my 5,000 songs over 40,000 songs any day.

If you’re looking to pick up one of these trendy retreads, just ask the guy or girl you know that you remember having one of these back in ’03. If they still have it, odds are they’ll sell it to you for $50 bucks at the most…and maybe it will be loaded with sweet tunes.
