I had my 20GB iPod for nearly five years, it’s been with me in six countries and given me hours of entertainment — now it’s finally given up the ghost. A few weeks ago it displayed a little sad iPod picture when I tried starting it up, and Apple tells me that this means it’s suffered from some “unspecified” hardware failure. The iPod has reached its end. It is an ex-iPod.
Gonna miss it.
I’m not going to replace it just yet, and I’m sure there are much better mp3 players to get whose manufacturers aren’t actively trying to make impossible to use with Ubuntu, so when I do I’m unlikely to get an iPod again.
