My iPod broke. It’s a flaming disaster, first the hard disk died and I managed to reserrect that! Then the buttons stopped working. Right now all I can do is use the headphone remote to start the tracks playing.

What this means is that right now I need a new MP3 player. In the running right now are

  • iRiver T10 (1024MB or 2048MB) (link)
  • iAudio U3 (1024MB or 2048MB) (link)

Youll notice that these are both flash memory devices rather than hard disk based ones, I think after hammering the crap out of my ipod ive learnt my lesson.
