Now THATS a nice armband.  To bad they don’t offer different colors though.

I was wondering the exact same thing.

It’s not a fact: the iPod’s hard drive is only accessed infrequently during playback, and is not affected by most sports. And obviously, the iPod nano has no hard drive.

“the iPod’s hard drive is only accessed infrequently during playback”
And since there’s no audible or visual warning to alert you to an impending HDD access, you’re taking a chance by using it during rigorous physical activity. If you absolutely must use a HDD-based iPod during a workout, encode your music in low bitrates. The smaller file sizes allow you to squeeze more music into the buffer (decreasing the frequency that the drive needs to spin up to load more music).
