Thanks, that might be an answer. I know a guy at sony that might just need to be bugged.

5. Mp3/Mp4 player - that DIED today.
6. Cellphone.
7. Digital camera

They make these things with a mere 'I'm stuffed!' lifespan of barely 12 months it seems.
I don't really have a lot of gadgets, but my iPod Video (that I adore and cannot function without) did go wanky about 6 months after I bought it. Had to send it back to Apple and it was replaced. Now I'm just praying the new one doesn't fuck up now since the warranty is done....

Oh--I had a surround sound system that quit on me too, but I very rarely use my tv, so it didn't really matter, anyway.

I just screwed up my son's computer motherboard while prying a video card out like ten minutes ago. I ended up with plastic bits from the slot interface.
Maybe it's time to pull the soldering iron and super glue

So, no truth to the rumors that you fry one or two vibrators a month? Or did you switch to gasoline power already?
