Apple, Please Make This iPod Classic Cover A Reality

Apple, Please Make This iPod Classic Cover A Reality | Bring back UK Design & Technology | Scoop.it
Apple uncerimoniously killed off the iPod Classic a few months ago, and the internet, as it is wont to do, basically exploded with consumerist anger. Although the iPod Classic probably won't be coming back any time soon, this concept, if it were to become real, would make it all ok.
