First of all, ive only had ipods up the 4th generation. But after my ipod just stopped working( second replacment this summer! )... this is too far. I have gone through 5 ipods now(this is includes 3rd gen), from them just breaking, and apple replacing them. I like how apple will just replace them easily, but seriously! Plus im in erope and have to wait till i get home( next week ) before i can take care of this. Sorry for being a whiner, but , can anyone else relate to this kinda crap?
