    Hey Apple, take your fliping iPod up yours!

    I bought, last satuday to be exact, an ipod 20gig... Was I excited...hell after paying about 400$ w/ a case and warranty I have the damn best mp3 player out there... Over the past week I've been taking soo much care of this thing that its unbelievable! I just love my iPod!...well not so fast...after 7 days.. the darn thing just...yup...died....its dead! What kind of a joke is this? I guess more is not always better huh... well screw you Apple and kiss my tanned ass!!!! ...please..give me a break...one week? thats just a big f-ing joke! Funny that this piece of junk only lasted 7 days and my Compaq iPaq which is about 4 years old and has been dropped a zillion time is still alive. To top it off it only cost 125$ back then & it was refurbished...


    Nice job Apple! Real ****ing nice!

    I've dropped my mini several times--it still works. Get your replacement, and try again..

    Buy something that's not made by Apple. Perhaps a Zen Micro? I've had too many problems with numerous iPods, I've given up on Apple.

    My iPod has been working for a couple years now. Sorry you had a bad experience, but **** happens. You have a warranty, use it.

    I've had my Ipod for about a year and half. The battery life is still really good, I've dropped it more times than I can even remember, and it still works fine. It was obviously just a manufacturing defect, return it and get a new one.

    Are you sure it's broken? Try resetting it (assuming that you haven't already).

    Where did you buy the iPod from? If it was a place like FutureShop or BestBuy they generally have a 30 day OTC(Over the counter) exchange policy...I am sure going right thru apple would do the same thing. You just got a lemon so dont bitch about it until it happens more then once....electronics fail.

    are you sure it didnt just get cold? i knew a guy at my school who thought his ipod was broken but if it gets to be just a little colder than room temperature and you leave it sitting on a table it can get too cold to operate.

    Two things:

    1) There are millions of iPod threads on here. Use one of them.

    2) Fliping is not a word. Remember the whole "double the letter" thing when adding -ing on words? Refer to 1st grade.

    If it died after only a week take it back to the store and get it replaced. You are under both store return and warranty period. Sometimes there's a bad apple in a batch (sorry, couldn't resist the pun). It doesn't mean that all iPods are like that- get a refund and buy another.

    I'm pretty sure that his experiences prove that all iPods are trash.

    I took a statistics course once, so I obviously know more than any of you on the subject.

    LOL...yep. It sometimes happens with new pods. I've had 2 iPods and both of them still work. The first one was/is unusable...the screen cracked but it still played songs...and from what I hear it still works. You just can't navigate it...that one's 4 years old. The new one is over a year old. I had a problem with the touch pad (got it wet) and it got real flaky about 3 months in. Apple replaced it within 3 days via UPS. Haven't had a problem since.

    So I guess it's not "timing" but rather "timming"?

    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Its probably just locked. Happened to me last week. If you unplug it without disabling the USB, or reset your computer it can lock. Goto apples site and search for the reset. I believe you toggle the lock on/off, then hold play/select for 5 seconds for it to reset. It will act dead a doornail if its locked.

    I figured trying to explain the rules would be a waste of time.

    Kind of like the whole "i" and "e" thing. When faced with those suffering from mental ******ation, it's best to simply give the first line and ignore the exceptions.

    Trust me, I've dealt with the mentally handicapped for over 20 years. Everytime I find a mirror.

    Has anyone gotten the extended warranty (I beleive its $59 to make the warranty 2 years instead of 1)? Not sure if its worth it, but it probably is considering the 60g costs $400.

    If that includes replacing the battery then it probably is.
