I finally managed to track down a black 160GB iPod classic today and so I’m now a two iPod family. First impressions are good, although there is a minor bug to do with syncing photos across where some of them won’t display unless you start a slide-show, apparently it’s a common problem.
While I was out I also picked up a DVD player for the bedroom. It cost £30, has far more features than my first player which cost £250 in 2000, and is probably as good as my current high-end player which cost me £600 (reduced from £1000) back in 2002. That’s progress for you.
