    I am a giant Apple fan, I have every gadget that Apple has put out, but I believe this is not only the worst product Apple has ever released, but possibly the worst electronic product ever released by any company.

    If you are thinking of buying yourself or someone the NANO 6, you would be better of lighting your money on fire and warming your hands in the orange glow.
    There is no turn off switch on the Nano 6. Even when you put it on pause and put it to "sleep", it will randomly play your whole music library and run itself out of batteries, so you just have to hope you can plug it in at all times that you are not using it.
    It also skips, not skips songs, skips like it is scratched vinyl.
    Sometimes it decides it doesn't want you to play the songs in your order, so it will start shuffling songs.
    Or my favorite, it will just stop playing your songs every 2 minutes of so, you have to wake it up and press play, really convenient in the middle of a workout.
    It crashes, a bunch of yellow chinese writing goes all over the screen.
    It is a POS, I cannot believe Apple released it, nor that someone agreed with the brainiac that decided it should not have an off button.

    1) WHERE did you purchase your Nano?!?
    2) YOUR Nano may be buggy. Don't generalize to encompass the entire product.

    ^^ Agreed. What the hell's up with your nano? I think you should restore it or something

    As always a thread doing nothing but complaining instead of doing the common sense thing and exchanging it.

    My Nano is perfect. Yours is messed up. Get it exchanged. Simple.

    ...all based on a single instance of a product? Thanks for the blanket statement.

    OP, why don't you post a photo of your Nano? Sorry to ask but is it a legit one? Maybe you somehow ended up with a fake/iclone type Nano, that would probably explain all the bugginess

    To summarize:

    There is clearly something wrong with my device, or I simply don't know how to use it. Should I take the time to troubleshoot? No! I have a better idea!

    TO THE INTERNET!

    That's what it sounds like. Chinese ripoff ftw.

    In any case, Apple took a step back with the Nano line with their most recent offering. The 5th gen is better IMO.

    I used to like being able to change the song / adjust the volume without looking at my iPod.
    At least we still have the iPod Classic for that :mad:

    I think it's alright, I mean the Chromatics are pretty badass. But still, I'm not surprised Apple took a step to try and renovate the Nano. Plus, I'm slightly tempted to buy one so I can wear it as a watch :p

    I don't own a 6th gen, but I do own a 2nd and my friend's kids own a 4th and a 5th gen Nano. I don't know anyone who owns a 6th gen, but all my friends who are Mac supporters do not like the 6th gen nano. To us, it's a big step backwards in usability and functionality.

    To me, the latest nano is a POS of an idea and poorly designed. If this year's nano is how all future nanos are going to be released, 5th gen will be the last gen I will own.

    Yep these nanos suck hard.
    But they sold out pretty quickly, well girls find them cute like my gf, but I've made her change her mind, so no nano:D

    Still loving those old walkmans (a82x) fast, battery that lasted like forever, no fuss and great audio quality.

    True. I wish Apple would have included the video camera effects in the new iPhone/iPod Touch. That was a nice gimmicky feature that I doubt people even know about. That made it better for me for that one feature.

    I like the 6th generation for the clip feature vs using a arm band method. I don't think the new iPod Nano is a ripoff from my actual experience in the gym.

    You've obviously never purchased anything by JWIN, Coby, Memorex, or Emerson

    The 5th gen, is that the one with the FM radio? I think that was the best Nano. Had click wheel, nice display, everything good.

    I didn't like the new nano the instant I saw it.

    In any case, I hope you didn't get your nano on ebay, OP.

    weird.. the instant i saw it, i loved it.

    It seemed different then the generic ipod nano/ipod classic design and it shows that apple is willing to try different things. Only thing I wished is that they didn't strip away so many features and make the UI look like a chinese iPhone copy. :p
