A $300 disposable mp3 player

I am so mad! Our iPod has been on the fritz for the last few months, so we finally get around to contacting Apple. They say, lots of people have been having the same problem we are....(no sound- kind of a big deal!) and as of yet, there's no way to fix it! So what? We're all just supposed to go out and buy another one? What a piece of crap!
 Edit: I just want to say, we did not pay $300 for it. We got it as a gift about a year ago. So, at least we aren't out the money, but still....

are you serious? I have been wanting one not that we have any money right now for it, but I definately don't want to spend money on it if that is what happens. Thanks for the blog.

Well, I'm glad that we're cheap and only buy the inexpensive Mp3 players..... at least our kids tell us we're cheap. But then when I've only paid $30 or so for something and it goes on the fritz, at least I don't feel like I've wasted so much money.

At any rate, I'm sorry that your iPod is on the fritz. I truly believe that these large companies have no idea what quality is any more and consequently we've become a real 'throw-away' society.

BTW - I posted my own blog related to your 'Six interesting facts'.... !!!

We got an ipod for Christmas last year- it never really worked right. We sent it in 3 times before they finally sent us a new one... Thank goodness it was under warranty.

Regarding meatloaf.... (your reply on my blog...) I think my meatloaf recipe is the best in the world.... next to yours - of course! I just wish my family thought the same thing. The boys won't even touch it. Have you ever baked it on a bed of cabbage leaves? YUMMY! OK - so this was SO not related to your blog about iPods.... but rather to my post about 'six interesting and little-known facts' which was in reply to your own 'six interesting and little-know facts.' HA Talk to you soon. And I really am sorry about your iPod.
