"My friend Nick is good at answering the questions I didn't even know I wanted to ask. For example, how many electrons per song on an iPod? At approximately 4 minutes per song (Apple's average), we can play through 150 songs in 10 hours (far less than the 1000 song storage capacity), giving us approximately 1.09•1020 electrons used per song. That's downright efficient compared to the piggish 160 gig iPod Classic, which weighs in at 850mA•h, 40h: 1.27•1021 e / song."
File this under useless trivia, but maybe you've always wondered the number of electrons your Zune takes to play a song. Or maybe not.
