I love gadgets, iPods, computers, laptops, DVD players, or just about anything that will plug into the wall or an internet connection. But, the problem is that I have too many things. I have four iPods. I keep buying a new one as the next generation of the Apple iPod comes out, but I also have a few that I of course do not use or that are broken. So, how do you get rid of or sell your broken iPod? Below are three ways to sell your Apple iPod.
