Whatever Happened To Using A Couple of AAs?

Apple iPod users are, let’s face it, a bit over-the-top in their love of the device, which is, let’s face it, just a jukebox with a long memory. Still, many iPod users claim they couldn’t live without theirs, which has caused some consternation of late, because as it turns out, the rechargable battery packs that power the little boxes of joy can run down after a year or so. No problem, you say? Just pick up a replacement pack, you say? Good thought, but Apple doesn’t actually sell replacements, and the company has been telling users to shell out $300-$500 for a whole new iPod when their batteries run down. One jilted user was so angry that he’s made a film about Apple’s betrayal.
