Selling Off

I'm considering selling off my iPod nano. I was reasonably surprised to see the price for them. I bought mine used. After a year, their average value has gone UP. Yeah. Weird. I'll use the money that I get to buy a Sansa Clip +. Its primary job will be to pump music to the upstairs stereo.

The Clip has a number of useful features:
  • Normalizing
  • Memory Slot
  • Surprisingly Good Sound
  • Cheap
  • Mini-USB Interface
  • Drag-and-Drop Loading
  • Small
The #1 ding against my Nano is that is does not maintain acceptable volume between songs which is a dealbreaker for me.

I am also considered selling my 2nd gen shuffle, although I see that as far less likely. That little guy is useful, and it too has better than average sound. As Apple has steamrollered their wonderful design, those who love the old design are many. That, and I never have to worry about scratching the (nonexistent) screen on it.
