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.
