One survey said that quite alot of kids and teens listen to there ipod every time they get. So for them yes. Personally I think something like this http://reviews.cnet.com/Archos_AV500_Mobile_DVR_100GB/4505-6499_7-31552040.html?tag=pdtl-list is a better investment, but that is just me.
seriously, IS IT WORTH IT TO SPEND $300 ON SOMETHING TO LISTEN TO MUSIC. some thing with only one or two fucnctions.
