You bought your 80GB iPod thinking it was all the space you would ever need only to discover months later it’s completely full. Thankfully, Rapid Repair, an iPod repair and service company has announced the first ever 240GB upgrade for 5th Generation Video iPods.
Company spokesperson Arron Vronko says they are finishing testing on the new upgrade an expect it to be available in 2-3 weeks. Apple’s largest iPod holds 120GB. 240GB is enough capacity to hold around 60,000 hours of music or 300 hours of video so you can listen to your entire music library and still have room for the Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Back to the Future Trilogies combined. Put another way, if each song is 4MB in size and 99 cents a piece, it would cost you over $57,000 to fill it.
The price has yet to be announced but early estimates are around $300 and the upgrade takes about about 2 days to complete. Rapid Repair is based in Michigan and fixes iPods, Zunes and iPhones with sound issues, liquid damage, hard drive problems and broken screens. The company also sells parts, accessories, and manuals, and includes professional installation of parts at no extra charge.
