iPods are not diamonds, which is why they aren't forever. Here's a broken iPod that has received a new lease of life, bring turned into a mouse albeit one that ain't too friendly with your fingers when it comes to being ergonomic. Thanks to the Internet, you will be able to find all sorts of mods done these days, so having a dead iPod is not a death sentence by any means. With a little bit of creativity, you will be able to turn this potential ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. Pretty much everything inside the original iPod had to go in this mod, getting replacements in the form of an optical mouse's insides. The LCD display was smashed in the original accident, hence the piece of printed paper. Bummer.
