My iPod has been acting out in the past couple of weeks and before I go to the genius bar, I wanted to see if anyone has had similair problems. 1st and foremost, is my earphone shock issue. I ordered a new pair of earbuds from Koss after getting constantly shocked by the Apple earbuds. Got them yesterday, put 'em in and bam-shocked again by the new earbuds-I had the original 5 gb last winter and was never shocked, not once. The shock was NEVER was a problem, and that's the major reason I'm concerned-maybe a problem with my 3g 10gb iPod that I got last summer? 2nd, while walking around iPod skips and resets to different parts of songs-or different songs altogether-and constantly pauses without me touching any buttons. iPod is fitted snuggly in my bag, it's not bouncing around and is protected by an exo skin that is inside the Booq PodPaq. I do use my remote which is clipped to the strap on my bag. I thought that maybe I was hitting the pause button accidently, but even if I hold it in my hand it still pauses and skips around. Should I be concerned? I am still under the original warranty so that's not a problem. It is cold here-I'm in NYC-but again I had no problems with my 1st gen 5gb in similair conditions last winter, so I won't accept any weather excuses....Any suggestions????
