Ugh sick pervert!

Unless of course you run a reasonable OS on it but last I checked you couldn't.

When I smashed the screen of my cowon M5 (i think) I went out and bought a ipod 5g the same day. within the night it was running rockbox just liek the cowon did.

I have enough issues with itunes from the SO! I mean like I know what does or how to use it. i resent it being on any machine i have but she has a nano 3g which also does not run rockbox. I mean how am I meant to play my mods (mostly amiga formats) and flacs?

Still the 5g ipod died too, age I think, though I did drop oil all over it which sort of made the screen hard to use, though it did not die till 1.5 years afterwards so i dont think it was that. I did clean up most of the oil but oil is hard to remove completely!

Nowadays it's rockbox as an app on android for me. I mean flac, mods it aint hard to support formats i want to play!

edit addendum..... What I started this about and forgot to mention is I did that to my 5g ipod too and it was fine. the key is to dry it out before turning it back on! nice hardware, nasty software.

A "new" Sony handy cam.

I hate the build quality of these newer HD cameras, they feel cheap and are cheap.
cant beat these older types and there tapes with replaceable batterys

Not much apart from the usual 4 or 5 CDs per week, just completed my Ramones studio album discography on CD :D

Renewed my mobile phone contract and upgraded to a Galaxy Ace 2.. not the most up to date modern phone but every game I've tried on it runs a blooming treat and the internal storage doesn't let it down like the first Ace did

A stereo Bluetooth headset for said phone.. this is the first time I've ever used Bluetooth on a phone at least.. I know I'm quite late to the party but wow.. it's blown me away, I wasn't expecting much to be honest but the sound quality is just as good as wired earphones..

Found a Soviet era FED 50 camera, its missing some of the trim but amazingly it works no problem and its a really brutishly built thing, you drop that thing taking holiday snaps and your getting a broken foot, was only £3.99 aswell.
Now I just need to replace the missing trim and give it a minor service and clean.

New needles and decent aux cables for my DJ set up.

Some decent monitors and a 4 channel DJ controller to replace that mixer are next on the list.
