Apple’s iPod has revolutionized the way we buy and listen to music. You don’t have to buy the whole album just to get the songs you really wanted. Listening to an iPod is like having a commercial-free radio station that only plays the songs you choose…and they always take your requests! With the video iPods, like the Classic, you get the same choices with your favorite TV shows, movies, and podcasts. Whether you purchase programming from the iTunes store (just $1.99 per episode for TV programs!) or record it through your computer, it’s all right there in your pocket.

The iPod Classic’s slick click-wheel lets you navigate quickly to any of your photos, video, music, e-books, iPod games, calendar events, and contact database. The durable, touch-sensitive surface responds to your every whim, and gives you total control of the experience. Whatever you’re trying to find from your collection, iPod makes it easy to get just what you want.

The iPod Classic’s high-gloss screen gives you a brilliant viewing experience, so you’ll see every detail, even in a brightly-lit room. With its built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery, the iPod Classic gives you up to 36 hours of music playback, or 6 hours of video-viewing on a single charge. All your favorite media, right in your pocket, and you’re in total control: that’s iPod!
