iPodus Overflowus

So, the time has come that my iTunes library is bursting at the seams; I’ve got less than 100 MB free on my 40GB iPod (note that the first computer I ever used with a hard drive in it was a IBM PC/XT clone with a keyboard hotswitch to flip it between 4.77 MHz and 8 MHz and a whopping 20MB hard drive).

So, I basically have three ways to go here.

  1. Buy a new 80GB iPod. Pros: easiest thing to do. Cons: I’m supposed to pull $350 out of my ass? Plus, there’s this persistent and completely unsubstantiated rumor that all-new video iPods are “just around the corner.”
  2. Buy a larger capacity replacement drive for my iPod and replace it myself. Pros: Highly geeky and fun, and cheaper than buying a new iPod. Cons: Still not really cheap, per se; no guarantee that it’ll work; non-zero chance that I could break the damn thing.
  3. Deal with it by not loading my entire digitized music library on the iPod.

I’m thinking that until a suitcase full of money falls of out the sky, I’m going to go with option #3.

"this persistent and completely unsubstantiated rumor that all-new video iPods are 'just around the corner'" is a real pain in the ass. I finally broke down and got a nano. I mostly just use it for podcasts anyway and, given that I really don't watch video on a 30 inch screen, I doubt I would on a 3 inch.
