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

    I think they should sell iPods again.

    Once upon a time.



    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:

    Their players weren't DOA?

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