So apparently, it's great if you're in a car accident, not so great for plain stupidity.
Oh well. I didn't really like it all that much anyway. I never really got used to the ergonomics of the button layout, and I felt the latch-release was too easily bumped open if I wore it on my belt while going out for a walk/jog. So phooey. I'm getting new running shoes *and* a new Walkman!
Y'know, in all honesty, it might be that the batteries are dead, now that I think about it. I think I should try that before throwing it in the garbage.
