Re: So, for people like me that still get good use out of theirs

While phones + memory cards are an alternative, their absolutely terrible acoustics and dreadful battery lifes make them unsuitable to replace a dedicated portable music player (yet) IMO. My Note 2 + 64GB can hold my music library in .ogg format but even with the excellent Media Monkey I still find my old Cowon S9 to be far superior in sound quality and to last much longer out of one full charge.

The death of the iPod may be just the sign that people have replaced the actual quality of their listening experience with the convenience of carrying one device.
