    Might be if not for so few GBs (I have 36GBs of music) and a battery that stopped holding a charge. I got about two years out of it, enjoyed it and moved on. So many new devices, so little time!

    Most of my old iPods are kept on devices with 30 pin connectors. My old 2nd generation iPod Nano is now the music source for my alarm clock. My iPod Touch is on a music player in my shop. I have playlists which I can download depending on the mood.

    That was not my point. For people who sell their unit to offset an upgrade after two years will not get as much on a unit with set lifespan. The future is likely to be homes with tablets for every family member and many of those will be used units... especially for kids and lower income situations.

    I tend to be more like you. I probably wouldn't have even sold my first gen except I have a family member who said it would help her with her schooling. Even still she ended up getting a 32gb 3g model with multiple cases and a keyboard for $250. Normally I'd just give it away but the purchase was way too fresh.

    I considered the scenario you mentioned about resales at the two-year mark, etc., but most consumers aren't going to have a clue about screen differences like this.

    I guess it depends on the buyer. Usually when I buy something common on Ebay I look to see what the average price has been on other sales so I don't over-spend. So it may not be all in what someone notices but in what the market dictates.

    In any event, I am glad not to have that problem.

    Most of the market seems driven by ignorance, unfortunately, lol.
