R.I.P., iPod Classic. May your wheel never stop making that delightful ticking noise.

Apple officially announced that it would be discontinuing the manufacturing of the iPod Classic back in September, but the MP3 player has been making news again because people have been gripped by a way of nostalgia and are buying up iPod Classics on eBay for more than double the original price. There's an all-out sentimental bidding way for these things.

Or they might just want to grab the iPod that has 160GB of storage space before it's too late.
