Do you run with your iPod?

The iPod I've had since late 2008 just died on me. After talking to an Apple hipster in my class I learned that the only iPod model you're supposed to run with is the shuffle because it doesn't have a standard hard drive that can get messed up bouncing around. Is this true? I'd rather get a standard iPod but I do want to run with it too.

Thoughts?



ETA: I've got a smartphone loaded with music but I don't want to run with it and risk dropping it.

that is true. you want to have no moving parts if you're jostling it around that much.

And the shuffle is the only iPod model that has ditched those moving parts?

I doubt running with an iPod Classic is gonna hurt the hard drive.

There's your problem. I would recommend getting another classic or just using your phone. It sucks though, since Apple is intent on forgetting about the iPod Classic. The closest alternative is the IPod Touch which is kind if stupid since it it basically an iPhone.

iPhones have a solid state drive. iPod classics don't.

I'm pretty sure my nano is solid state flash memory...so that hipster was wrong.

I have the 6th gen nano, best iPod for working out IMO. It's very small and has a clip on the back so you can clip it to you clothes (i clip mine to the waste-band on my shorts).

It's this one FWIW:

I'm old school. I like having my 160G of music with me, not on a cloud. Lost one in West Palm Beach so I'm on my 2nd one.

You can't buy a $5 device that wraps your phone around your arm securely?

I've been running with a 3rd gen nano for more years than I can remember...still works like the day I took it out of the box.
