Tomorrow we are moving to apartment No. 2 here in Hamburg. High time I praised a wonderful device that has woken us up for the past four weeks: The Philips DC220/12 radio alarm clock (top left). What a coincidence that this apartment came with the perfect companion for my trusted modded 5th gen iPod (bottom)!
For me (and a gazillion other people, I’m sure), the whole iPod nostalgia was sparked by the movie Baby Driver (top right) and writer/director Edgar Wright’s own gusto for music and retro tech.
I own two modded iPods and one is usually part of my EDC:
- Black 6th gen iPod Classic 160Gb (not depicted), with an iFlash Solo and an 128Gb SD card (unfortunately, the upper limit for a 6th gen iPod), do not forget to also buy the required HDD ribbon for the 160Gb model
- White 5th gen iPod Classic 30Gb (depicted above), with an iFlash Quad and two 200Gb SD cards
I can highly recommend breathing life into your old iPods by modding them. The 5th gen iPods’ music chip is concidered top of its class. Check out iFlash’s compatibility page and see for yourself what’s possible.
