Often times, in fashion and technology, the same trends come back to flood the market, especially after taking a hiatus. Whether it is the crop top, high wasted pants or the iPod classic, there is value in saving these items in the case that they become popular later down the road. This is especially true in the case of the iPod classic. If you are one of the lucky people who kept the iPod classic, despite the constantly evolving and improving technology, you may have a way to make some fast money.

Apple discontinued the iPod classic two months ago, and with this discontinuation came a surge of people scrambling to find one. The frustrating process of downloading music, hooking up your iPhone to your computer, deleting pictures and music to make space, and downloading each update, are all nonexistent with the iPod classic and consumers are just now realizing this. The large storage capacity, 160 GB to be exact and holding around 40,000 songs, makes the iPod classic extremely valuable. In some cases, it is worth up to $1000 on Amazon or eBay.

When there is a demand for a product, Apple is usually one of the first to rush in to fill the void. The question is, will Apple be the company to fill this music void or will someone else?
