Eighteen whole bucks?!

Remember this clunker? It's the first Apple iPod, the 5Gb scrollwheel model. I sold mine to Video Games Etc. yesterday morning for $18 bucks, including the Firewire cable and the wall recharger. IIRC, that set me back $380 in 2001, but (heh) I got a lot of fun out of it. I used the $18 bucks to get a haircut.

Truth? The old iPods had non-replaceable batteries, and they were never guaranteed to hold a charge. This thing was an expensive white plastic brick, and you had to use uncomfortable earplugs with it. $380 bucks does not disenamour one lightly, but eventually, yes. Oh, yes.
