0 Uses for a dead iPod

I was looking at my old big fat iPod last night, and was mulling over just what to do with it. Under Ubuntu, I can actually charge it, and then get to listen to the disk drive failing loudly. So it is definitely gone. I was hoping against hope I could maybe use it as a large portable drive, but it is too flaky for even that.

So what do I do with it? Should I bin it? Find a way to recycle it? Use it for a form of art? I’m lost for ideas, so any suggestions would be gratefully received.

New iPod shuffle with 2GB and 4GB are Coming

Bigger shuffles. Good, I was hoping this would happen this year. Apparently the cost of the current ones has come down in the states as well. I’m very happy with my 40GB ipod (well I would be) but I may need to try and get other people like mrsfb into ipods soon, so I see the shuffles as a good place to start.

In other news, still not convinced about iTunes Podcasting. Have added and downloaded episodes of some podcasts, and a few are missing from where I would expect them to be on the ipod. Will have a dig tonight to see what is going on, but it is not ideal.
