OT: Ipod engraving?

Post by last man on earth » Fri Jan 23, 2009 5:27 pm

Do any of you have your ipod engraved, and if so, what does it say?

The GF is getting me an ipod since I'm now utilizing mass transit, and wants to know if I want it engraved or not...undecided.

An obscure quote from a song that means a lot to me.

For a few minutes I did think about how it would affect the resell value, but let's face it, these things are becoming more and more disposable as storage gets cheaper and moreover, as the batteries slowly die and it becomes more convenient (for want of a better word) to just buy a new one...

My first iPod was stolen; I wished I'd engraved that, just to annoy the thief...

Hey f**ker
Give me my iPod back

On mine I have my social security number, credit card numbers, atm pin code, email accounts with passwords, phone number, and my address along with hours that I am typically not home. All there in case somebody finds it and wants to return it to me.

My pink nano 4gig is inscribed with "Bring me the head of the fortune teller".
It's a song by a band called Swervedriver and they are fucking amazing:

It's like the perfect portable music player for me. When I bought it, I didn't expect to resell it, and I still don't.

My first one was engraved but it died a few months later because it was in my jacket pocket and I got caught in a ridiculous downpour of rain.

Besides, I live in Cleveland now and even the stuff you DON'T lose gets stolen never to be seen again.
