    So, Apple didn’t feel it was worth paying someone to make the parts for it either then.

      It’s not a matter of paying someone to specially make the parts, because that would cause the price to be ridiculously prohibitive, it is a matter of supply and demand. The parts were not in demand in high enough quantities to justify continuing to make them. It’s business.

    I don’t buy an f-ing word of his crap. The ONLY reason they stopped making the iPod is so that they force those owners into buying their “updated” every sixth month, overpriced cellphone, say nothing of their inability to do the same with said iPod.

    Fk The Cult of Apple…

      I agree. This planned obsolescent culture has totally taken over and everyone is eating it up. Makes me laugh when I hear these big companies report a quarterly “loss” because iPod sales are down. Are we supposed to be buying this crap every year? Did I not get the memo?
