Re: IPods and other portable devices


So far this year I have heard of 4 IPODs crashing, last year 27 died here. I heard a janitor talking about adjusting her earbud when she touched a doorhandle, the ststic discharge made teh bud crack and teh battery was toast. I am not sure about the ones last year but I think it was teh cold that killed them, this year has been very warm thuogh and I am sure teh static is breaking components inside teh boards and such.
Be careful about handling them and they should last a little longer, the longer lasting ones are usually found in offices as they are plugged into the comps and left whereas teh ones on the move tend to die more.
