Apple isn't stupid enough to lose that kind of money, but i could see apple doing a one-time charge for an update that would allow iPod Photos/Colors to have video play back and also the lyrics thing like the nano and the screen lock.mhoutman said:will the iPod photo get a software update so that it will have some features as the new iPod (Video) : worldclock, new games, password lock, etc /
First, I'm not sure a firmware update could provide all of the features, but if it could provide any of them, I agree that in this case, Apple should try to accommodate the owners of previous generation iPods as much as possible. Normally, I'd understand the business reasons behind not doing so, IMO, Apple has already dealt owners of earlier iPods a bad hand by making many of the accessories unusable on the new model. They didn't have to do that, but they made the choice to do so. For first time iPod buyers, the 5G is a great deal. For folks contemplating a second or third iPod, or those considering replacing a dead iPod, I think they've been done a disservice. So, if Apple can do anything to throw previous generation iPod owners a bone, I think it would be in their best interest.xsabrewulf said:I agree. I think apple should do something.
I mean we are STILL their customer. We should STILL be supported by apple.
Giving us Lyrics feature they are not going to lose out. I think even giving us the video feature they aren't missing out because face it. People that own 4Gs are STILL gonna buy the new ipod because battery life, comes in black and thinner...
I still think Apple should support us, dont just throw us away because of a 5th G.
I believe Apple should do something considering they through the new photo ipod at us then 3 months later release a WHOLE new Generation. This is a bad thing on APPLES part.
