Two months after Apple said it would no longer make the iPod Classic, that model is a strangely hot item.
Another report in The Guardian showed that in the U.K. iPod Classic models are being sold for as much as £670, or about $1050.
And that’s not even close to the top. If you’re lucky enough to own a factory-sealed special edition U2 iPod that sold in 2004, note that a seller just fetched $90,000 for one. That’s right, $90,000.
CEO Tim Cook said that the difficulty in getting the necessary parts, declining demand, and newer Apple products ability to store as much music led to the decision to cease production. From (CNBC.com)
