Apple Finally Killed the iPod Classic. RIP iPod Classic.

By Adam Clark Estes on at

Today is a sad day. Today is also a happy day for several exciting reasons, but today is a sad day for one very specific reason. Today is the day the iPod Classic died.

It's true. Following its volley of announcements this evening, Apple updated its website as per usual, and also as per usual, inventories shifted. The inventory of iPod Classics is just gone, though. You can buy a Shuffle or a Nano in seven different colours. You can buy an iPod Touch in five different colours. But you cannot buy an iPod Classic.

I know what you're thinking: didn't the iPod Classic die a long time ago? In some people's hearts, it surely did. But not this blogger's. For me, that old clickwheel will keep on spinning, round and round forever.
