The iPod Death Clock

I purchased The Walnut a few months prior to the wedding. It was our DJ.

This iPod Death Clock will guess when your iPod will die and painful death. I presume it uses statistical analysis based on previous users trouble shooting history, manufacturing date, usage and dropage.

So I have the 1st Generation 60gig Photo iPod which was manufactured in November 2004. I think I purchased it sometime in the summer of 2005. I now use it around 3-5 hours a week (I am more an iTunes kinda guy), normally used in the car, it’s never been wet, it’s never been dropped and I’ve never seen those funky “bad” icons when something really bad happens.

So the verdict is:

78 days, 8 hours, 40 minutes 24 seconds.

Bummer dude. The real kicker is that is also says my battery life is around 22%. I had wondered why it wouldn’t played 12+ hours like it used to be able to.

But today it’s fine and I am not planning on buying a new iPod. The Walnut is working fine and it’s my baby. So we’ll see…
