My Retro iPod

By now you should’ve read the great article about iPods and the cult of Mac, from yesterday’s NYTimes Magazine’s design issue…

Steve Jobs: ”Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer — that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

Over Thanksgiving, I convinced my dad to write a check so I could buy him one and fill it with music he likes (White Stripes? … Yes; Darkness? … No).

Yesterday I went to the Mac store in Soho and got him the 10GBer and an iTrip.

Problem is:

  • iTrip for the new iPod doesn’t work with my 6 month old iPod
  • cradle for new iPod doesn’t work with my 6 month old iPod
  • Apple store doesn’t sell remotes for my 6 month old iPod

    MY iPod is OLD. I hate Moore’s Law.
