Any I Pac users out there ? If so, can they tell me what happens when the battery runs out as I understand that it is not user replaceable ! And how long it lasts !

There's been a big stink about this, with Apple being investigated. The batteries have a limited life and when flat cannot be replaced making the unit useless. I believe if you make a complaint with Apple they may change the battery for you.

Yeah, and Musicmatch is BAD. It is bundled with it. AGHHHHH.

Not anymore it's not, they give away iTunes for windows now, much, much better :)

The batteries ARE user replaceable, but apple don't supply batteries to end users, there are a couple of places on the web you can order batteries from.

All this stuff about batteries strikes me as a bit of over reaction, I know people who've still got first generation iPods that work perfectly well.

Anyway for more info read this thread at iPodlounge
