    My 40GB iPod photo always sits in a dock and plays tunes through my stereo or iHome. I decided to test the battery life today.

    I started playing tunes at 615 Am today and it just shut down at 634 PM after playing 203 tunes of the 3000 tunes loaded. I think that is a pretty good showing for an obsolete iPod. Anyone else get similar results?
