I liked the concept of BuyMyBrokeniPod:
We offer a fast, simple, and eco-friendly way for you to get money for used, new or broken iPods and iPhones. We accept Classic, Touch, Video, Photo, Nano, Mini, iPhones & Generation 4 to 1 iPods. We don’t care if your iPod has a cracked screen, the a busted hard drive busted, or shows a sad face, has buttons that don’t work, is acting weird, is old and creepy, has water damage, or if the battery is dead. We will pay you top dollar for your unwanted iPod MP3 Player or iPhone guaranteed! Keep your old iPod out of the landfill and you get cash in return!
What do they do with them? Who knows?
Just for fun, I filled out the form for my 1st Generation Shuffle, admittedly not having even much value when it was purchased. A few years ago, I found it no longer was recognized when plugged into the USB port (of any computer, even tried a PeeCee). It would recharge okay, but I was pretty much stuck with the "Last Sync".
So should I ship it off to them to get my $0.00 via PayPal?
And, on another front, I am glad to hear that scientists are hard at work to quantify why those headphone cords get so tangled.
Bids are now open to beat this offer.
