FUCK! Yesterday i was using the ol' pod mini in my girlfriends car. I had the itrip in so i was kind of holding it near the radio to get better reception when she hit a bump and it just barely slipped out of my hand and fell. This is the one time i've taken it out of its little rubber condom protector case and a small drop ruined it. It's stuck on one screen and doesn't respond at all. This is the SECOND FUCKING one i've bought. i'm such a god damned sucker. My only hope is that i can use this kit i've ordered to take it apart and maybe change the battery or something. FUCK!!! FUCK!!!

have you tried the  hold-unhold-hold-unhold-hold-unhold-then-press-circle-and-menu-at-the-same-time-for-about-five-seconds process?
context, context, context.

i did the hold-unhold-hold-menu-smash-scream-break-wrist-on-coffee-table-in-fit-of-extreme-anger-due-to -the-amount-of-time-and-money-i-spent-on-this-worthless-piece-of-trash trick and it didn't seem to work?

actually, the battery finally died and i've just plugged it in..and it responded! but its still not working...i wish these things were easier to take apart.

well, when the incident happened and it was frozen on the one screen, the battery was completely full. after i let it sit a couple of days the battery finally died. I plugged it back in, and its back to normal. I'm grateful too because i almost pulled out the piece of shit shuffle i won in a raffle.

You may.

30gb or 60gb (he asks, knowing full well that Mac bought the 60gb)?
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Fucking piece of shit... my nano is stuck on hold and I tried to reset it to no avail, I used the program that came with it to put it back to 'factory setting', still stuck on hold. It's been like 95 days that I have it so the warranty is over.

I knew I should never have gone with a better brand like sony or whatever.

You’ll never miss a song even in the bathroom with Atech’s “iLounge hybrid toilet paper dispenser/iPod dock”. The iLounge supports all iPod models that have a dock connector and has an integrated USB slot for the Shuffle. Speakers are hidden in the dispensers arms with navigation buttons located conveniently on top for easy access.

iTunes copy protection 'cracked'

The code that prevents music downloaded from Apple's iTunes store being played on any portable player other than an iPod has been "cracked".

Apple has not commented on claims that Jon Lech Johansen has "reverse engineered" the FairPlay system.

Prominent hacker Mr Johansen has made a name circumventing software used to restrict the use of digital media.

His company, DoubleTwist, said that it planned to license the code to other digital music player manufacturers.

"There's a certain amount of trouble that Apple can give us, but not enough to stop this," Monique Farantzos, managing director at DoubleTwist told Associated Press.

"We believe we're on good legal ground, and our attorneys have given us the green light on this."

Market dominance

Mr Johansen first distributed a program to bypass the Apple system, called QTFairUse, in 2003.

Since then several versions of the program have been distributed to keep up to date with new versions of iTunes and FairPlay.

These were distributed on the web for free but were difficult to use without technical know-how.

Now, Mr Johansen and DoubleTwist plan to commercialise the technology.

At the moment iTunes controls 88% of the legal music download market, while 60% of those possessing a portable music player own an iPod.

All music sold through iTunes uses the FairPlay system that restricts the use of the downloads. Purchased music can only be moved between five computers and played on an Apple iPod.

Downloads cannot be transferred to players made by other manufacturers, such as Creative or Sony.

The new "workaround" could help companies like these sell iTunes compatible products that could start to scratch away at the iPod's dominance.

Mr Johansen, also known as DVD Jon, rose to fame at the age of 15 when he wrote and distributed a program called DeCSS that cracked the encryption codes on DVDs.

The free program, posted on the web, was written by Mr Johansen so that he could play his DVDs on a Linux-based computer. Following complaints by the film industry, Norwegian authorities charged Mr Johansen, but he was later acquitted.

The courts ruled that he had a right to decode the DVD.

For those of you looking for a good heavy-duty case, I whole-heartedly recommend Speck Products Tough Skin line.

I've had one for my video for a while and use it all the time. I've dropped it a few times jogging or at the gym and it's never even make a skip. It has a screen protector too so no scrates.

iPods will say they love you, that they'll do anything for you, but they won't take a fucking bullet for you.

Besides, you're one of those assholes that bought black.

This is what I've had for a while... my only real complaints are that it yellows really fast and starts to look ugly and the screen protectors scratch and scuff up in like a day and while they're cheap to order more, the shipping for them is a ripoff.

I think I need another case... like a "going out" case... one that looks nicer.  any suggestions?  Anyone have that clear snap-case?  I'd like something small, snug, and sleek.
