iRipoff
iRipoff
I have a question for those of you with iPods. How can you justify the way you get ripped off on one of these things? First there's the $200-$400 price for the player itself, then the $99 battery replacement. What the hell. As if Apple isn't making enough money on the silly thing they have to charge you $99 for the privilege of them giving you a new battery and loosing all your stored music in the process. I was going to get one a couple of years ago, but then I started to look at reviews and found out it would be a waste of time.

Yeah, I agree totally with you. The iPod is a total ripoff. A friend of mine got one, and now, to download any new music, he has to pay .99 cent per song. Why not just buy the cd and save $200? I don't understand the craze; it seems like consumer baiting and frenzy to me.

No, I love my MP3 player. Even though it doesn't work right now. Cheap 64MB RCA. I don't mind paying a few cents for a song, .88 at Wal-Mart.com. I'd love to have an iPod, if not for the price involved.

Also, if you check Other in Choose an identity you can put your name and address rather than just being anonymous.
