That scratched first gen iPod nano is worth $37.50

I am not a big music person, so it took me a long time to jump on the digital music bandwagon. Those of you who were right there years ago when the iPod was booming in popularity may have been toting around a first gen iPod nano.

If you had one of the things, odds are you were all mad because it got scratched up so easily. The hoards of iPod nano users with scratches were angry and teamed up for a class action suit against Apple.

After five years, the suit has resulted in a settlement that will net all owners of affected nanos a check from the iPod nano Cases Settlement fund for $37.50. That's not much loot, but hey, it's more than you would get recycling the thing.
