I love my iPod classic. I listen to podcasts at night, off line, without a phone on. It seems the new system is stopping that – I am not always on line when I listen eg camping but it seems the expectation is that everyone uses phones or new iPods. I do have a windows laptop and could start all over again but my large music library is on the Mac so I would lose that. Can anyone help me…and if Apple see this I am really unhappy about making a good working piece of equipment obsolete.
