Summary: It’s like Apple’s shoved the iPod from six years ago in a cryogenic chamber, gutted its innards, and shoved in a whopping great 120GB hard drive. Fantastic for people afraid of change or who have more songs than sense.
Conclusion: As its name suggests, not much has changed on the iPod classic—it looks a little different on the outside, and there's a useful, but not radical, interface update. The big news is the massive capacity upgrade.
Excerpt: Lacking the wide-screen wonder and connectivity of the iPod touch and the 4G iPod nano's gee-whiz accelerometer and shake-to-shuffle feature, the iPod classic doesn't feel new or innovative. Rather, it's a tested and reliable way to carry around your digital media.
