Nice! Thanks for posting. What's up with the mini? It looks broken or disassembled on the bottom.

I have it partially disassembled, it has been playing fine but for some strange reason the text will start to fade as I use it.
I have never seen this before so I took it apart and plan on swapping in a new battery and possibly a new lcd. I just have to get on the stick and order the parts.

Very nice collection indeed. I see you got the new Nano , did you ever play with that or just got it out of the box and put in on that stand?

Nice...I work in NY (Manhattan) and my company was involved. Unfortunately I didn't have time to participate...so I'm not exactly sure where it was held. I did see pics though and it looked like an awesome event!



On another note. I just received my 2GB 2G refurb silver nano today! When I get around to it I'll have to update my collection picture.


Where is everyone elses picture?!?!?!

Yeah they are awesome. The nanos fit perfectly in them because they are so slim. As for the bigger iPods, it just so happens that the prong part of the stand fits perfectly in the dock connector...exactly the right width and length! They must have been secretly made for iPods

Eric...also post a pic of your 13 iPods. It would be nice to see!

That happened to my friends mini too... but he was lazy and just got a new classic

Here's my lineup:

10GB iPod 3rd Gen
1GB iPod Nano
30GB iPod 5th Gen (Black)
16GB iPod touch

My Mom has an iPod shuffle 1st Gen
My Brother has a 1GB Nano
My Dad uses both my 1GB Nano and my 10GB 3rd Gen (since I don't use them)

I use the 30GB 5th Gen for video only and the 16GB iPod touch for music and wifi stuff.

Very nice! You must love the new shuffle! Is that 3G nano modified with a black click wheel?


Everyone else follow in NC MacGuy's footsteps and post a pic!

I think that's the regular click wheel but it looks off-colored because of the light.

Ahh...ok it must be a black nano (standard with the black click wheel). I thought it was a silver nano with a black click wheel.

I still have my 3G 20gb with the original box and accessories. It's on its third battery now. That's my only iPod however.

I would really like to find a nice 1G though.

I think every apple fan should own a 1G. That spinning wheel amazes everyone!

The 3G and 1G are the two most amazing and unique iPods. I'm sure they will be sought after in the future.

I'm still on my first iPod (a 2nd gen mini) though I've order a 16GB CF card from newegg to upgrade it to 16GB. That should keep me going for another year or two

I wish I had the same will-power as you! With all of those beautiful new iPods out, you're still satisfied with what you have...that is awesome!
