There will come a time where my iPods might expire. With that said, there are some issues to consider. First, Apple is no longer making the iPod. This means I am more likely to not be able to get a new iPod if something should happen to my current one. In such a case, I will need an iPad which will likely not have a 3.5mm audio jack. If that becomes the case, then I will need a bluetooth speaker. The black bluetooth speaker I could find is available on Amazon for $50 which is a low price, but hopefully – the sound is good.
