    Yesterday, January 28, 2008, my fifth generation iPod died.:( She died of natural causes - hard drive and battery faliure. I got her on my sixteenth birthday. She will be missed but at least she is in iPod heaven.

    Ah, the death of a 5G iPod... I have a black 30GB that's been through friggin' hell. My dog has CHEWED ON IT, THEN LEFT IT OUT ALL NIGHT IN THE FRONT YARD. One time I cracked it open with a screwdriver and busted a corner of the screen, and the flaw is still there.

    It's currently running a combination of Podzilla and the touch hack.

    In this forum that's like pouring gasoline on a flame...

    ime, the Zune software crashed my system twice and in the end still didn't install correctly (on Win XP, no less). The whole setup sucks. I side with Andy Rooney when comparing the two.

    Any iPod will last long enough if you take care of it - but with everything electronic, it will fail at some point down the road, that's to be expected.

    @Prof: I'm very sorry for your loss. :(

    You're kidding? Please tell me you're kidding.

    This is the only thing a zune is good for:

    Oh, I had the iPod for two and a half years, it lived its life.

    I don't trust you, Prof. I demand an investigation!

    I saw this on Engadget a while back and laughed! I only wish they actually made them.

    Kind of like why I bought a Microsoft Messenger (with little "Microsoft" tags all over it) bag for my MacBook Pro? This way nobody'll steal it!!
