The 5 Generations of iPods
Since an offshore friend brought me a 2nd generation iPod as a gift 3 years ago, I never failed to miss getting a piece of the succeeding ones (she actually found it inside an airplane cabin during her cleaning duty while working in Japan).
So, I got myself a new 5th generation iPod video (30GB, black,
not it’s the 5.5gen) even though I just bought a Nano over 2 months ago at the Taiwan Airport Duty Free Shop.
I guess the 2GB Nano didn’t have enough space for me, especially when I’m on very long trips. What actually prompted me to buy one just tonight was the price — Php13,500 flat. Yup, prices are dropping that fast now that the 5.5 gen (and 2nd gen Nanos and Shuffles) has dominated the market.
The regular iPod prices are actually the same one I posted here and the one that I got was haggled a bit down with the guy at Gigahertz Computers in Mall of Asia (but that’s another story altogether).
