some time or another the dell ditty will probably come out with a bigger memory capasity.
Sure, but a 2gb capacity model in fall of 2006 isn't much use if you want one now.

the ipod's warenty is like $60 for 2yrs.
Weird, cost me $25 to extend mine that long.

the batteries cannot be fixed with out sending the whole kit and cabootle in for repair.
True, but I know of two people that had problems with theirs and had them back, repaired, within a week, no extra costs.
the battery doesn't last that long. try listening to it till you kill the battery. that my friend only lasts about 2 hours. i went to Kansas from Texas this summer with my iPod and it died every two hrs. another thing is, i'm not sure about what batery the ditty has, but it maybe more truethful than apple's.


if you want a better price for the memory, get the iRiver. it's small, FM radio, microphone on it, and 1gb for $200. one thing you'll knowtice is that you will end up saving more money if you buy an iRiver than if you buy the iPod.

The warenty is just a way to get money offa ya when you wont even need what they are wanting to fix for you if it "breaks" just incase. which those parts IMO wont break unless you are really bad with stuff.

i know a guy that went running, and it broke. it was just on his arm and it broke. and a boy that i work with..he left his in his truck overnight, and it broke..not very good if ya ask me..

Something was seriously wrong with yours...that 13:48 was based on my personal experience.

I know there's something wrong with it. it's called it was made from Apple. The only reason i got the iPod is cause cheap and more memory for a cruddy put together.

i've got a Rio Forge. with rebate it was $70. 256mb. for $45 I can slap a 1gig SDcard in and get 1.25gig of music.

I'd make apple replace the lithium battery in your iPod.

if i had my recept still i would go make my wise investment in a dell dj...can get a 5gb for so much cheaper than 4gb on apple..better quality too. that's just my opinion.

Despite all the pro/cons mentioned, I have a co-worker who just purchased that antennae thingy that allows you to remotely connect to a radio. He decided to surprise me by setting it up and used my personal radio in my office. When I walked in, the sound was so crystal clear I thought it was a CD playing.

You mean one of those FM transmitters? I've tried 4 or 5 different brands and they all sound terrible. There's lots of static no matter what station it's tuned to. I'm surprised to hear anyone say that about an FM transmitter. I hated mine so much that I replaced the cd player in my car just so I could get one that my mp3 player would connect to directly. My mp3 player sounds great when I connect it to my car stereo or home stereo, it's just that stupid transmitter that was awful.
