James is bummed that Apple stopped selling all iPod Classics. Apple says they stopped making them because they couldn't get the parts. James doesn't know why Apple had all stores sent them back, though. Could it be that Apple is going to use them for parts? Apple is very good about controlling the supply chain. They probably weeded out most of them through sales. Apple is a very good "just in time manufacturer," and there really isn't a very deep backlog of inventory to pull from.
