Technology steadily progresses and once something comes out, it is usually outdated in 6 months.  So everything technological is updated witha new model at least every year.  The new iPods have come out.  If your old iPod works just fine, why should you upgrade?  What is the advantage the company has by putting out new models every year?  Does the marketing (Ads in newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, internet) have anything to do with you changing your mind on buying a new one?  Why or why not?  (Must be at least  5 COMPLETE sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    That is cool to me because it is like that i pod touch but smaller. I think it would be cool to have one. People will probably get one so they don’t have to carry the big ones even know they probably can do more.

    I don’t think if your old ipod is working you should change it, the only changes are the look and how many GB are in it. So really its not much of a change. And i also don’t think that the marketing is a big problem either. If the prices of the ipods change its not by a big one.

    You should upgrade because of better graphics. They come out with a new one each year to make more money. when u upgrade probably has more apps. Yes because you want the latest version. You want to show off that u got better stuff then anyone. probably got better wifi.

    i think they upgrade because it’s new and it’s better and has more stuff.the advantage the company has on putting out new models every year is they will get alot of money and they will have alot of people trying to buy it cause it’s new.and i don’t think marketing has anything to do with people changing their mind and buying a new one

    i think you should upgrade because the the new ipod touch has new stuff that the old ipod touch dont got. every time the company puts out new stuff makes them get lot and lots of money. the newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, and internet information does change my mind some times because it tells me the stuff it has on it .

    You should probably upgrade because the old one might stop working for some reason. So I would upgrade. The advantage they have is that they can keep their customers or whatever with their products. Maybe but I don’t think so. If yours is working just fine then don’t upgrade. Unless you want to be kept up to date.

    I don’t have an I pod but am getting one in a few more weeks but I think if you have an old one and there no problems with it why get a new one then it a waste of money and your time so why do it. If i had an old I pod and had no problems with it i would not get a new one but I will get more designs to get on it so it can look different. But that will be about it lol…

    Oh that seems so cool!!
    I mean for the fact that something so small can handle somethings that are so big. By that i mean how they can handle so many Gigabytes. I really don’t know if you should upgrade them. But then again i don’t have one. All the apps that are on the Iphones them self’s are unreal! You have the Gps’s The game settings, Internet, Twitter apps, And even apps that turn off your house lights.

    The graphics on the upgraded stuff are better. But i think that if there is nothing wrong with your old one, then your fine and you don’t need to upgrade. Some people upgrade just to upgrade. (Just to have something “higher” than there friends). Having upgraded stuff is nice to have for a while, but then in six months, the same thing is going to come out but its just going to be upgraded, and your going to want it just to have it.

    i dont think you should upgrade because the old ones work just as fine and we would be waisting money on something so stupid. they do the same just some hold more music or they have a new look. and i dont think the marketing has anything to do with buying a new one but it might persuade you to buy a new one.

    I think that newspaper and the rest of the papers encourage you to buy a new ipod because if they see that there is no change in the market of course they are going to tell you to buy the new ipod. I think technology gets into the new stuff so people can go out and waste their money in stuff they all ready have just that it is in a different version. I don’t think that the technology today doesn’t need upgrade because you have what you have and you don’t need to be buying one every single year just so you can look cool.

    I really don’t see the reason in upgrading to something so fast if the other thing still works and looks perfectly fine. They have the advantage of technology that makes their technology look so interesting. They just want us to keep spending money on things we don’t need or already have. No it doesn’t. Um… I’ll buy what I want to buy either way.

    Because it can be better than the one you already you have.
    Because most people will buy the new every year.
    Sometimes yes because they can say bad things about it.
    And if you weren’t going to buy one they would say good stuff about it, which makes you want to buy it.
    If I had the money I would buy the new one.

    The reason they make new umodels knowing the old ones work is for money. Some people like the old ways. They don’t want to spend $300 on something that just came out earlier and then buy something for $350 when it just came out. It is not smart. The ads may add something new but later they are just going to make the same thing for the old ones.

    But if it already works fine then upgrading would be pointless. When it is messing up thats when you should upgrade. If you upgrade it will cost every time you do. those are my reasons.

    because every body likes to fit in the crowd and get new stuff as it comes out. and it could have better apps on the i pod. the advantage to getting a new i pod is the company is getting more and more money. yes because it shows on the add on the TV that it has more stuff to do and has more apps.

    i think it is kind of stupid if you have something that works just fine but then out and buy something else that has been up graded. now i can see if its not acting right you got to get a new. only reason you buy it is because it looks cool you probably don’t know one single fact about thing.

    Nobody should upgrade if you still have a nice new working ipod. Seeing ads in the newspaper and television and in other types of ads is because they would probably think its cool. The reason most people would probably change for the new ipods is because most people will think its better.

    Well i think its kind of small for an i pod hence the word nano in the in the finishing sentence. but if i had an i pod and cared i would not switch it for some tiny thing that works just the same. i didnt like the portable game systems eather it would not give the i pod company a boost unless it had some fancy new techknow gear. but the i pod company makes enough money as it is it dont matter to them.

    I don’t see a point in upgrading anything if something just came out. I think it would be cool to get a new upgrade ipod touch. I think its stupid if they come out with a new ipod the next month, i see no point in it. But i think people would do anything to make some money. But i wouldn’t buy something that hasn’t been out that long.

    I think that the marketing does have something to do with the people wanting to upgrade their ipods and other pieces of technology. I think this because these companies advertise these new models so well that it makes people want to upgrade. They make people think that the new versions are cooler. Which they might be but people just want them to have them. So I do think that the marketing takes a big part in the sell of new versions of technology.

    Okay, I think that if my Ipod works fine. I still may want to buy another one. They are coming out with new things and they are making them more advanced so of course more people will buy them. Sense people go for the more advanced stuff more people is going to buy it! Simple fact, also I think that sense like everyone has an Ipod people is going to buy the new ones.

    Its depends if you should or should not upgrade. First reason to upgrade, everyone is and it looks cool. First reason to not upgrade, it could be expensive and you probably have like 3 diffrent ipods. second reason 2 do it its alot higher tech. Second reson not to it probably to confusing.

    I think it would be awesome. This is a great invention because it is a smaller version of the ipod touch. It will probably get a lot of customers because of this invention. Because it is a smaller version of the ipod touch, just like the ipod touch it will get a lot of customers. That is what I think.

    i think the advantage of company’s putting up new ipods every year is because when its new everybody wants the new thin and everyone will buy it so they get more money probably every year they make the new version of that same thing. I think people will want to upgrade their ipods so it will be better than and improved than the they had.

    I dont think that its actually necessary to upgrade when your ipod works as good as the others that were upgraded and just came out. Even though a new ipod or something fancy comes out once in a while i really think that its an advantage for the people who create the items more money or time to come up with more expensive things and want the customers to have more interesr because what has been created is the new style basically “bandwagon”.But also it could be just to make new things you know have new inventiges of what can maybe hold the world of what it will be so even if its all highly technical &stuff either way there the same thing but one may do more than the other.
