My iPod died a couple of days ago. I thought I just had to connect it to a proper charger to get it working again (not the USB or Firewire ports) but as I found out today - no go. I guess it caps off a brilliant week :-)
RIP iPod. You saved my ass lots of times. Of course by using my warranty you'll be replaced and forgotten about in the near future, but I'm thinking about you now.
