ive had the ipod mini for a while now, but i was thinking if i should get a new one for the season cuz its getting all screwed up. so of all the mp3s, which do you recommend? and the mini i had a little leather case that i kept it in when skiing, so it doesnt break as easily, and i was thinking on the ipod classic but seems like it could break.
i have a microsoft zune. i like it way more then my ipod mini. battery last longer and it feels stronger.
You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours!-JEA
i got a little 60 doller 2 gig sandisk
it has a screen and shit so its not always on shuffle, and it comes with an fm radio incase you dont feel like listening to your music
i would reccommend it because you dont have to take care of it too much, and you could just make a ducktape case to protect it haha
I have a 100 gig Archos AV 500. This is a great mp3 but it is like carrying a brick in your pocket. The cool thing though is that it is a portable DVR and you can record straight from a television. Also, Archos has a new mp3 out that can hold 180 gigs of music and videos i don't know what it is called though. The AV 500 also comes in a 30 gig version which is about half the width of mine and much lighter. It still has the 4 inch LCD screen to watch movies which is fuckin sick. I think that Archos makes the best shit on the market. I've had way too muck trouble with ipods because once the battery dies in about a year, you need to pay a lot of money to get a new one. The Archos actually has a removable battery pack so if your battery does eventually die, you can buy a new one online for like $15. The 30 gig Archos costs something like 250 and it has so many more features than an ipod. Check it out.
i sent in my 30 gig the other day to get replaced, i think im gonna get the 80 gig with the giftcard iget back. says upto 40 hour battery life so that beats teh old 12 hour
Anyway, a gas station we pass. We got gas, and ran off to get grub.It was a nice little pub in the middle on nowhere. Anywhere woulda been better. I ordered enchiladas and I ate 'em, Ali had the fruit punch.
i have a ipod nano in one of those clear plastic cases and the thing has lasted me two seasons with no problems. ive fallen on it, dropped it, basically anything you probably shouldnt do and its help up well.
i have the new nano, fucking awsome. but, if this is just for skiing, i would go with a new shuffle. battery life is 12 hours, 240 songs, it doesnt HAVE to be on shuffle, its soo small, hard to break, very durable, and yeah, thats what im using when im skiing
If you want something durable, try the old iPod shuffle. I managed to wash and dry mine TWICE and it still ran fine. Those things are amazing. Too bad I lost it finally.
I have a first gen nano right now, and its great. You can get a 4 gig for pretty cheap, and I've been rocking it without a case cause I dont care about scratches, and its perfect for what I need. I even nailed a tree branch chest first last year, right on the nano... its a little bent, but still works fine.
ipods dont break. i dont care what people say. iv dropped mine on concrete floors, in the snow w.e. and its fine still. ive had it for three years now or something and its fine. I would get a shuffle though cause its hella small.
