Sorry - I have to vent. I love my iPod, and I've never had any problems with it until now. I hate flying- but I had a trip across the country for which I prepared for quite diligently. I figured the only way to get through the trip was going to be with my iPod- so I ripped a bunch of movies and TV shows, loaded it with my music, put my audiobooks on there, bought a backup external battery, set my world clocks to the different time zones, put all my flight info in, etc. etc. Five minutes after I board the plane it makes a loud screeching noise and it's totally done for! It just shows the 'www.apple.com/support/ipod' on the screen. This is the point where I realized I am WAY too reliant on my iPod. I ended up buying a bunch of Tylenol PM and grumbling to myself for ten hours.
