complete Bach on one iPod.

Yes, I got a brochure sent to me, offering me the complete works of JS Bach on one 80Gb IPod. Cost is Euros 499. Equivalent of 172 CDs. All the Cantatas and other choral works. These are conducted by Helmuth Rilling.

This is one IPod that you would certainly not want to lose or break.

You can find Helmuth Rilling on YouTube.

(On the following comment, don't get me wrong. I LOVE some technology, BUT...)

It's a bit scary what is available these days, and comparatively cheaply.

The only thing that would worry me is that from memory iPods use a particular format that is not translatable to any other hardware. And iPods have been caught out over issues of planned obsolescence (interesting articles here, here and here).

Compare this to the old vinyl LPs that my grandmother *still* owns from the 1950s - in great condition, excellent recordings, still playable. I wonder how many of the Bach iPods will still be functional in 60 years?

Just food for thought.
