ipod vs. cassette

here’s a fun side-by-side comparison of ipods and cassettes. Perhaps the most interesting thing they mention is the lifespan of each device. It’s interesting to think that an ipod may only have a lifespan of 3 years (extent of the applecare warranty) whereas a cassette can easily last 30 years (if stored properly.)

yes, but compare the storage space of each! I can fit 15-20 songs on a cassette. I can fit 10,000 songs on my iPod!

backup all those songs to an external hard drive, tom! when my computer crashed last year, i lost tons of iTunes songs. but, they were still all on my iPod, so i can still listen to them on there.

i’ve got a Walkman from 1995 that is still going strong.

Bose doesn’t | didn’t make a SoundDock for Cassettes

Cassettes could fall out of a Walkman and break. Similarly, tape could become tangled, come out of the casssette and|or be destroyed.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
