True treecem most of the smart phone users use a second phone for their basic need which is making calls, and uses smart phone for all the other things.

So does buying Apple products fall into the "buy american" category? Since almost evey other phone is from a company outside the USA?

I guess, Nokia being owned by Microsoft falls into the group too?

Ha, yeah, Cabe, my thoughts exactly. I didn't realize that not only are people still buying them, but also Apple is still updating them! OK, I guess I did know that, but they do seem a bit obsolete now with the age of the smartphone.

With Kids these are a hit.  It gives them all they need as they do not need a phone yet & even as they become teenagers and want a phone the monthly cost of a smartphone are to high for a kid to pay the fees.  (yes, I know I am old school here I make my kids pay for their own phone once they get one)

We have 5 of these in our house 1 for each kid and 1 for me.  They have virtually eliminated all the hand held gaming devices (DS style devices).

Who buys iPods

As a parent, I know now who buys iPods.  Well, parents buy them, but they are for grade school / middle school aged kids.

By fifth grade, my daugter and most of her friends all had iPod touches, and they send apple messages to each other, facetime, make videostar videos, play games and other similar things.

As an Android person, I'm disappointed to see Apple gobble up this adolescent market!

At least my daugther knows that she needs to use Google Hangouts to reach me.

They are great devices that offer a near smartphone exerience via Wifi.

Not evereyone has jumped on the data plans for smartphones. Some of us still use the "old school" phone only device. I use my iPod daily to listen to music or check emails, etc. Battery lasts much longer than my coworkers smartphones. Walk by any desk and you'll see their smartphones tethered to a charging cable. My phone lasts 6 to 8 days between charging and the ipod will last for three or four days listening to music or other simple tasks.

This slideshow is worthwhile, if for no other reason, to see the iSclack, which looks like a cool tool.

People still buy iPods? I suppose if you are trapped in itunes for all your music, I suppose you will.
