    Is there anywhere that I can buy an iPod touch for cheap? I have an iPod shuffle right now but it doesn't have a screen and that kind of bugs me if I want to listen to a certain song or artist.

    What's cheap? I can get them for $229 at a lot of places ... anything cheaper is probably a scam - unless you go used, then you'll have to look at ebay.

    Why not a Nano? It's cheaper.

    I got mine from this marketplace forum. I went used though. I got a 8gb 2nd gen with a incase slider for $160.. the case alone is $30 so that's not a bad price at all.

    they are on hardforum.com's marketplace frequently with 1st gen's even going cheaper.

    $229 is not a good price.. they are that brand new.. you can get it cheaper refurb on apples site

    go to craigslist.com There are a lot of people selling their ipods for real cheap. If you're lucky, you can find someone who takes very good care of theirs and are just looking for some cash or upgrading.

    My hard drive is missing space!!

    My 500 GB external hard drive is filled up with 200 GB of files, (hidden and unhidden) but when I look at how much space is left it says there are only 30 GB free! I do know for a fact that my friend copied some files onto there with 'super user access', but they aren't showing up! How do I get that space back (without formatting it) soon?

    Download DiskInventoryX and see what is taking up the space.

    craigslist is ok i guess. but people think their things are worth more than they are. and some people are incredibly rude.

    i.e.... was about to meet up with a guy who wanted to trade his 2.4 15" MBP for my MacBook... and he said he wanted my MacBook+500$..............................


    i would add in more "...'s" but i dont feel like it.


    i'd go on eBay you can't really get ripped off there... just don't let the compitition get ahold of you like it did on my dell mini 9 haha

    I did what you said (using diskinventoryx) and it still only listed 200 gb of files.
