iPod’s Dirty Secret Revealed

The Neistat brothers have taken it upon themselves to ‘redecorate’ iPod posters with their public service announcement which reads; iPod’s Unreplaceable Battery Lasts Only 18 Months. A QuickTime video of their efforts has been posted at www.ipodsdirtysecret.com

Editor’s note: Contrary to their belief the iPod battery is replaceable

Uhh, what?

Power is power, and charging cycles are charging cycles.  You clearly have absolutely no idea how battery technology works.

Thank you come again.

The more charging cycles you perform, the less power you get out of the battery over time. If you think that you would have to charge AA’s running an iPod as infrequently as you do running a mouse, then, quite to the contrary to what you said, YOU have absolutley no idea how battery technology works. To clarify, your rechargable AAs would have to be charged pretty frequently if you want to use them with a power-intensive iPod compared to a mouse that just transmits X and Y coordinates to your computer.

Thank you come again.
