Re: Old Ipods
"Are *still* being used because people don't care that the drive is fragile or for that matter batteries are not made any more"
There is a carrier card to use a Compact Flash card in the old drive based iPods and there are third party battery suppliers around. I have one, but I mostly use several 3rd gen iPods. I like the form factor and I have them loaded up with different stuff for different moods.
