Environmentalist have a new reason to rejoice. Instead of throwing away your old 5 gig 1st gen iPod (or whatever), when you get that shiny new 80 gig iPod, you can rather sell it to the enterprising folks at Buymybrokenipod.com. Looks like they’d probably refurbish it and sell it to someone who’d wanna buy it. This is kinda reminiscent of the old adage “One man’s thrash is another man’s treasure”
They seem to have setup a nice wizard like interface for getting a price estimate for old iPods based on it’s condition, model… etc. Just to test it out, I tried to get a quote on my relatively new 80 gig iPod (~ 3 months old), and interestingly I got a quote of USD 111.
