So, I've been trucking around a 3G 40gig fat boy for a while now, and decided that it's too old, and too small, and doesn't handle podcasts very elegantly, so I purchased a refurb 60gig iPod from Apple. On the way out to the boat, I took the new iPod out of my pants pocket and put it in my hoodie sweatshirt pocket to keep it from getting wet (an inflatable, leaky dinghy). Well, the dumb thing fell out of my hoodie straight into the 4 inches of oceanwater in the bottom of the dinghy. Death #1. I let it dry out in the sun and wind for 2 days, and Sunday afternoon it was "almost" dry, was able to boot up, complain about no battery, and shut off. I thought I'd give it another full day in the sun. Well, it wound up raining, and now after 3 more days, it won't do much at all besides complain about low battery, "very" low battery and can sometimes get far enough to show the Sad iPod. I think I'll throw it in the garbage and tell an environmentalist that i didn't recycle it.
