So this is my iPod history: 1st iPod: 3G 15GB the one with the nice orange backlit buttons, ended up giving it to my mum when battery life went down a bit. The packaging was awesome btw... 2nd iPod: 512mb shuffle, I got this as the headphones on my first iPod were cracking, so I thought it'd be good to have a backup/USB data key... 3rd iPod: 5G 30GB, this was good, but I was using it with Sennheiser DJ style headphones and wrapping the 6foot extra cabling round the iPod, eventually (and well timed) the headphone socket became loose and only played out of one ear. 4th iPod: 16GB Touch, this was awesome, Jailbroke it and it served the function of a PDA aswell, just one thing was missing, so I sold it for £169. 5th iPod: iPhone 8GB, once O2 reduced the price of the iPhone to £169 I snapped it up, its been awesome, but push email has put battery life right down. Anyway, all during this time, one iPod has come to always be there for me, when others have run out of power, lost their voice or failed, the shuffle has always come through for me when otherwise I would have to hear the inane ramblings of the tourist on the tube, or the chavette on the bus. Its not very clever, its a bit clunky now, and if it was a dog it would be that 14 year old mongrel that you grew up with. It won't learn all the new tricks your new dog knows, but you couldn't shoot it for relieving itself on the rug... Am I alone with this practise? Or do other people keep an old iPod in their bag or pocket incase their main one runs out of battery?
