Personally, glad to hear it happened (I hope that isn't too mean).

I think they should sell iPods again.

If I had a dollar for every dead iPod killer I'd have an iPod. :D

Once upon a time. (http://news.com.com/2100-1040-963901.html)



Was the DJ ever considered an iPod killer? Most of the reviews I've googled had very few good things to say about it.

See, now if you had said:

I could say...

Apparently they didn't. That's why they've stopped trying. :p

Their players weren't DOA?

Four years of trying to light a match in a windstorm is a good effort.
