I usually try to keep posts on my dA account strictly related to my models and various projects, but I've found myself in need of a larger sounding board than biased online reviews. As the title states, my iPod (160gb 7th gen classic) recently died on me, and given that it's out of warranty, I'm looking for a replacement/alternative.

Since high school, I've gone through maybe five or so iPods, and in my experience, they typically barely out last their 1-year warranty. On top of that, the one time I did have a legitimately defective in-warranty device, dealing with Apple's customer support was akin to pulling teeth.

So I'm curious as to what the populous here at dA uses for their on-the-go musical needs; does anyone actually use anything other than Apple? (die hard Apple-fanboys need not reply ;) )

TL;DR - What would you recommend as an iPod alternative?

Do you have any advice on creating your own papercraft models? I've been wanting to try to make some portal 1 heel springs.

Not to put a damper on things, but paper isn't really the best material for cosplay (or for anything but display, really), but if you're determined to make them out of paper, i might suggest wearing high heels and making some sort of paper shell to go around them?

hey dude, i searched long and hard (i know, i know) but your's is the only master chief worth building. but maybe you could design another one in a bit more action pose - holding up the gun? and recoloring based on newer games? man, that would be amazing. you rocked the internet with this model and if you follow up with an update, i think, it would be a win. cheers!

Do you ever do requests? I'd love to make the Samaritan revolver from Hellboy but haven't a freaking clue how to begin drawing it.
And your birthday is the day before mine! :)

yay close birthdays! sorry but i'm not accepting requests right now. as far as the revolver goes, I'm pretty sure someone's already done it; take a look on google
