My trusty iPod model A1136 died suddenly. It leaves behind a loving owner of two years, a dog, a cat and a faithful collection of movies, music and podcasts. Alas, it will be missed. It kept me company on many travels to near and distant places. It provided me vital information and insight on long drives. It kept my mind at ease while doing my walking, hiking, running and cycling many, many times. It was in failing health as the battery had begun to cough and sputter. It's beyond warranty according to Apple and therefore I have chosen to unplug it from life support. Rest in peace.
