Interesting. I know that Zero is more tolerable than Diet, although I don't really drink either of them.

BTW, I think it's the other way around re: Diet Coke and New Coke: New Coke was basically Diet Coke with sugar, and was introduced because for a while Diet Coke was outselling regular Coke

If you approach the other sellers before the auction runs out, they can cancel your bid for you, I think.

^didn't you just buy a BMW M5? eBay is a crapshoot/bad deal when it comes to buying apple products and digital cameras.

a great way to find a iPod for less is to buy the apple official refurbished models. you can even get applecare for them. 99% of the time the refurbished stuff from apple (computers, iPods, accessories) ends up looking brand new because they put new casings/screens/ect on.

I've bought my parents refurbished Macbooks and an iMac and they were non the wiser.

^ I went that route a few years ago and never looked back. If I remember correctly, they come with a 1 year warranty too.

Yeah I just emailed the third seller about my predicament. Hoping he allows me to cancel my bid.

I would get a refurbished model but they don't have any refurbished iPod classics. I don't want an iPod touch or nano, which are the only iPod lines they're offering as refurbs.

Does anyone want an 80 GB iPod classic for a hundo? Free shipping!

you can cancel bids if the auction still has a lot of time left on it.

there are plenty of iPod classics at the apple refurb store: albeit the super duper huge capacity ones

I had no idea old school iPods were still selling for that much. I figured that by now you could probably get one for a rub and a tug

Anyway, what kind of grandpa is using an iPod these days? I thought everyone used their phone.

Hroi, just because you acquired your iPod by jerking some stranger off doesn't mean everyone else will!

^ I'm looking to get an iPod to keep in my car so I don't constantly have to hook up my phone whenever I drive.

Also, my interface doesn't recognize the iPhone 5 (that's the primary reason why I'm getting the old iPod shog[1].gif).

Somebody ate my fucking ham!

I had a sandwich worth of ham in one of the office fridges. I reach in there for it today and the container it was in is open and there's some sort of little to go cup of salsa/hot sauce sitting in there with the ham. I figured it just got jumbled around in the minifridge until I notice that half of the sort of rolled up ham is missing and the remaining half has some remnants of the salsa on it.
So somebody opened my ham, dipped it in some sauce, bit half of it, and then decided to put the whole fucking mess back in the fridge without even closing the container.

Worst part is...I'd already toasted my bread, so I had to toss that too (along with the greens that were going to go on the sandwich since they were at the end of their life and will be no good by monday when I am back in the office).

my 32G iPod didn't hold nearly enough music much less the phone... plus then I'm always killing the phone battery. I have at least 400-500 albums on my pod and I need all 160G!

This [and the general disgustingness of public fridges and microwaves] are why I bring plain lunches I don't need to refrigerate or heat up.

I'm basically all streaming now. Occasionally I will want something that's not available on Spotify and I will buy it on itunes or the like, but that's rare and I probably have no more than 30-40 songs on my phone
