    R.I.P. my 4-buttoned buddy :wtc:

    now I need to replace it. I'm either thinking 8GB Nano or 30GB regular ipod. I'm not in a particular hurry. Is a new generation of either of these due for release anytime soon? I'm trying to contemplate waiting or just buying now. Also, is there a place I can get these for cheaper than Apple? :hs:

    latest rumors are the touchscreen ipods won' be out till holiday season.
    apple doesn't want to harm iphone sales.

    my 3rd gen ipod is still alive :hsd:

    my 3g ipod started taking a shit immediately after I went to the MacWorld convention and started asking vendors if they made any accessories for it. I got laughed at by like 5 people that day. It was more than the poor 3g could take, so I think it decided to call it quits :wtc:

    oh noes. i love my 3rd gen iPod. everyone always looks at me like i'm retarded when they actually see it though. i am sorry for your loss.

    what exactly is wrong with it? if you take it to the apple store, you could tell the the battery is fucked and you want a new battery. they hit you with a 60 or 70 dollar charge, and they take your old iPod. then they order you a new 3rd gen refurb'd iPod.

    it's actually pretty baller. my friend did it a few weeks ago. when we compared iPods, you could see the rough life mine has had and how mint that refurb was.

    at first it was just the battery life. it got so bad that it wouldn't last more than an hour. I'd have to charge it every time I went to the gym. Now my computer won't recognize it anymore. I tried reconfiguring it and starting from scratch, but that still didn't help. It just says "do not disconnect" but doesn't connect to iTunes :wtc:

    so go tell them the battery won't hold a charge and you want a new battery. enjoy your brand new 3rd gen iPod.

    I'd rather have a new/refurbished one. I'm torn between the 8GB Nano and the 30GB video though :hs:
