Countdown to the End of the iPod Era: A Detailed Analysis

For those with a dark sense of humor or mere curiosity about their gadget’s lifespan, a visit to the iPod Death Clock on iPodMechanic might be in order. By entering your iPod’s Serial Number and providing some details on how often you use it, the site will predict how much time your device has left.

According to their calculations, my own 30GB iPod video has roughly four months before it stops working.

If you’re wary about entering your actual Serial Number, fear not. The site only uses the number to identify the model of your iPod.

Alternatively, you can input a sample number provided on their homepage.

Remember, this tool is designed for fun and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. I’m hopeful that my iPod will prove the prediction wrong and survive well into the following year.
