I am thinking of buying an IPod. Right now I have a MP3/CD player so I just burn a bunch of songs to a disk in MP3 format and play that. But I want something small that I can just clip on my belt when I go run outside. I got a cheapo MP3 from my credit card rewards company, but the damn thing is so tiny, there aren't any controls on it. It's got this stupid cord you hang around your neck that has the buttons on the string. Weirdest thing I've ever seen. Hubby has used it but I just threw up my hands. Not to mention actually getting the songs loaded on the thing. Sheesh. Also, I wouldn't like that cord around my neck bouncing around when I run.
Soooo....I am thinking of buying an IPod. I know nothing about them. I read some online reviews and they said the Nano gets scratched really badly. I don't like the Shuffle, too tiny. But I don't think I want to spring for the new IPod with the video and all that (unless it's got a camera built in that I don't know about). I have no use for watching videos on a tiny screen. I just want to listen to my music at the gym, and I want something small (but with a little display screen and controls on the unit) that I can clip on my shorts when I run/walk outside. From what I have read, the original IPod seems to be what I need, but you can't get them anymore, can you?
Any advice? Thanks!
