          Very good player. Connecting to Wifi drains the battery within 2 hours, but while just listening to music and not trying to connect to Wifi while on the road, the player will last for hours. Great screen, very compact. Very good player.

            When updating firmware, the iTune interface does not indicate whether the USB plugs in your computer are compatible with the downloaded software. If they are not, then the update freezes the iPod and, if you can restore it to the previous firmware, you lose all the applications previously purchased.
