Attention iPod folks... [Feb. 5th, 2009|08:02 pm]
John
Does anyone out there need an 80 gig USB hard drive in the shape of an iPod?

Seriously, that's about all it's good for. I spilled coffee on it and it ruined the clickwheel. You can press the 'play/pause' button a dozen or more times before it registers, and it often runs out of battery power because it's equally hard to turn off, and it doesn't always shut down due to idle time.

Preference given to electronics geeks who could actually repair the thing (or who have other methods of controlling it) and use it other than as an external hard drive.

It'll probably be sent via USPS (unless you can pick it up) and I promise to bubble wrap it, but there's no guarantees it'll arrive in still-working condition. But, it's survived a bit of bouncing (while wrapped in a silicone jacket) in the past.

Just to clarify things for johnpalmer, sounds like you've got notably more use for it than I do, so I'd say it should go to you rather than me. :)

Thanks, I appreciate it. It'll put off having to replace the old one, which is really helpful.

One thing... I'm damned if I can remember your last name. And, if the address gets munged, I might need that.

Gads. At long last, after many false starts (including realizing that I'd written the wrong state on the envelope - MD instead of MI), it's in the mail with two day delivery. So, today or tomorrow (mailed on Saturday, with a 3pm pickup).

I sent the iPod, the USB cord, my Speck case along with the little screen protector. I didn't include the earbuds, because I use them as my travel earphones, but if you ask for them, I'll mail them out.
