Via (with article about the recall)
A couple sued Apple after their iPod Nano exploded. I always say that Apple has the best customer service, and this is more proof of it: they are recalling all first generation Nanos and will replace them, free of charge, with new generation ones. So of course I'm taking advantage of the offer.
My Nano was my present for my 14th birthday. I vaguely remember making a Powerpoint for my parents telling them why I needed a Nano so very badly. I just thought their sheer size was amazing--I could literally fit a thousand songs in my pocket! Needless to say, I thought I was "so cool" bringing my Nano to middle school and listening to it during our lunch break.
See? My parents even personalized it for me with my name. Part of the replacement deal is that I have to send Apple the Nano so they can make sure I'm not using it anymore and risking my life just to listen to Nicki Minaj. It's kind of special to me, and I'm sad to see it go...
...ok, not that sad. Because look at how cool the new Nanos are!
*Half the size of my 1st generation Nano, which I already thought was small!
*Come in a rainbow of colors, and they seem to be more scratch resistant than my old Nano
*24 hour battery life! My old Nano had, what, a 6 hour one?
* Built in clip: I can attach my new Nano to my pocket and listen to it when I'm walking to class
*Twice the amount of GB
*Built in pedometer/work out system! I'm so excited about this. If you wear the Nano while working out, it'll upload your stats to Nike+'s website and tell you how many calories you burned. It'll be a great incentive to get me working out
*Radio capabilities: there are a ton of radio stations and Chicago that I want to discover
I'll keep you all updated when I get my new Nano. For all of you who still have a first generation Nano, send it in!
