Despite their reputation as the coolest music players of all time, iPods are still pretty delicate and are susceptible to breaking from time to time. When this happens the temptation is to write them off and begin saving for a new one, all the while making your ears suffer through lack of musical nutrition.
What isn’t apparent to a lot of iPod owners is that there are a number of companies out there who specialise in iPod repair and who can do it for much less than the cost of a brand new unit.
One such company is iPatch (www.ipatchonline.co.uk) who are so confident of their prices that they list their competitors on their home screen, daring you to make a comparison. If you should find a price cheaper than theirs for the repair you want, they will match it. You can’t really say fairer than that.
On top of that, if you’re feeling like you’ve been neglecting your soldering iron lately, they’ll even send you the parts so you can attempt the repair yourself.
