Not unlike many (wo)men, I find my myself abusing repetatively things I like. My first Ipod got replaced after a few weeks, although I can't take full credit for that -I only dropped it once. But now I am really going for it. I let somebody spill abundantly beer over it while it was fixed in the Inmotion speaker set. After that it took a day or two to recover completely and to stop blabbing about a missing image card. I tried dropping it in the wet sand, without any side effects. But when I swam through sea water with it, dragging the earphones through the water -I just picked the wrong spot to cross the laguna on my way to the beach- it kept on sounding the same, wether I put them in my ears or not... Two days later they came through, still with some rattling in the right ear, but I decided my old Sony ones sounded better anyway. And then there is the docking station, giving false contacts a gogo -I can even hear the car's engine revving through it, just because the whole thing got knocked over a few times.

So now and then I return to the hassle free joy of the cd. That is, if it is not one I engraved myself, because then my car player prooves as reliable as the Tarifa weather forecast.
