Time-bomb Nano

Six years later, Apple has determined my iPod nano is a safety risk. They are sending me a replacement.

Dear iPod nano owner,

Apple has determined that, in very rare cases, the battery in the iPod nano (1st generation) may overheat and pose a safety risk. Affected iPod nanos were sold between September 2005 and December 2006.

I did not join the class-action suit a few years ago about scratches, so I forfeited my $37 settlement.

I will miss this little guy. It was my favorite iPod. It will be interesting to see what they send to replace this classic gadget.

Nov 17 UPDATE:

Apple is replacing the 6-year old Nanos with 6-year young Nanos according to Mac Rumors.
