I also still love my iPod Classic and went into a spiral when the battery died on the first one and I could not find ANYONE with the tools to remove the back to replace it (the batteries are easy to find). I went to eBay to purchase another 80GB. I hesitate to take it out as much as I did the first but am worried that I am ruining the battery by just using it on AC all the time. I also have a waterproofed Shuffle that I use in the pool and the Nano, which I like for the radio….I have a few podcasts on my iPhone, but no music….
Long live iPods! They are for true music lovers. Apple….figure it out. Please.
