Make your iPod mini flash based

MP3 players


Don’t toss that old iPod Mini! (Not that you were going to, anyhow, since you could at least stick it on a pin and wear it on your hat like a badge of honour.) The warranty’s void anyhow, so check out how to replace your mini microdrive with flash memory making it stronger and more powerful than ever before. The theoretical capacity of the CF card you’re splicing in is 137 gigs, and since you’re then removing the major fail point of the mini, you’re apt to have a big fat mp3 player for a long, long time. (Though you might replace the battery while you’re in there.) [GT]
