iPod Shuffle Battery Replacements

I came to a conclusion to my previous dilemma on how to best spend my gift certificates… Up until the last minute my intention was to purchase an iPod Shuffle… The problem was it came to my attention that their battery replacement program was far too expensive to cover a $150 iPod Shuffle… It wouldn’t be such a bad deal on a full sized iPod, especially if you get their maintenance program which costs half the price of the battery replacement and covers two years…So instead I went a very different route… I bought a 1 gig SD memory card for my RCA Lyra and a Macally FM transmitter… Ironically the transmitter was designed for an iPod but other than the iPod charger it comes with, it works just fine with other players… In fact I can highly recommend this transmitter… From the moment I took it out of the package, it has worked like a champ with no fuss… It comes with an AC adapter and a car adapter… Sound quality is excellent, though it’s tricky at first to find a good empty frequency to broadcast on… Even then it didn’t take too long to find one…

Now I can carry days worth of music with me and listen to it on the go… My next project on this will be to write a piece of software to synchronize my WinAmp play list with my player…
