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.
 
Lucky.
