    You've got a durable battery there, awesome! I intend to play this iPod until it offers a ridiculously low battery life. If it gets below 1 hour and a half of playing time then I'll think about replacing it with a new unit.

    i beg to differ. even on my powerbook i often find that there is a very small ridge created by the battery compartment that can sometimes make the book a little wobbly. i use my ipod way to much to have a battery compartment to worry about falling off, breaking, or something else. with all the accessories and stuff out there, for the few people who ACTUALLY need more than 12 hours or whatever the 4G ipod has, there are plenty of solutions. unless you're dumb enough to use your backlight all the time, there's just really no reason your ipod battery should dying. it takes all of 5 seconds to plug it in at night.
