Remember the 64-color pack of crayons? Meet the 65,536-color pack. Everything looks better in color. With iPod photo, everything sounds better, too. Carry an entire library of music—thousands of songs and full-color album cover art—or tens of thousands of photos in your pocket.1 The original iPod changed the way you listen to music by putting thousands of songs in your pocket. Now iPod photo changes the way you see your music, with a crisp color screen.

It stores a lot of music and photos, and fits in your pocket. I'm a musician, so I can't live without my music; however, anyone who loves listening to music will enjoy it. As with any other iPod, you can have everything you want to hear, whenever you want it, without carrying CDs. The photo feature is also really cool. I've had it for over a year and it's been working flawlessly!!!
