Some people I've noticed have been through 3 or 4 video iPods due to a number of issues. It seems like the iPod is the Xbox 360 of MP3 players! :lol: Definitely not THAT unreliable. The reason that you hear about reliability issues more is for two reasons: 1) There are more of them and 2) You're no...
