The Apple Faithful had one of their revival meetings today, and Reverend Jobs rolled out the new tchotchkes. Chief among these were the new iPod Touch, which is kind of an iPhone without the phone part. They also renamed the standard old iPod the ‘iPod Classic’, which seems like the kiss of death to me.
Jobs emphasized that you can now store 40,000 songs on the 160 GB iPod Classic. That sounds great, but how big is the average music collection, really? I’m not sure how representative this data point is, but I’ve got the 1000th largest collection on MP3 Tunes, out of 90,000 members, and I’ve only got 7500 songs.
The extra storage is for video, obviously, which brings me to my question. Do you watch video on your iPod? What type of stuff do you watch? How long is your average video-viewing session?
UPDATE: You know, a bunch of the usual losers on Digg were complaining that the iPod Touch only comes in 8 and 16 GB versions. An entire season of an hour-long television series is about 8 GB. Do they need the thing to hold the complete filmography of Woody Allen?
