BTW they make the ipod only to last about 18 months, the battery dies, and it not easy to replace(voids warrenty). I was told this by a mac tech at an ipod store.
Batteries are replaceable by regular human beings, and if they are only designed to last 18 months, then they are designed to outlast the warranty which is 12 months. So replacing them wouldn't void the warranty. I read the Apple forums all the time and can tell you the battery replacement is no big deal.
