bad news for my ipod
It’s been struggling lately. It’s a couple of years old. I can’t say what generation it is, but it would hold 60 gb. Not a video ipod either, but one I had become VERY attached to. It had music, audiobooks, pictures, podcasts, and more on it. I will miss driving to and from work listening to the podcasts, and for the next few days or so burning a cd of my material, since I truly have begun to DETEST general radio, am or fm. It’s been having trouble synching up to iTunes–but after most of the time 2 tries, it would synch. But yesterday morning, as I stood at the sink, I dropped it–into the tiolet. Splash. I heard it hit the water, but did not register what had happened immediately. I turned from the mirror and nearly fainted. BUMMER.
I turned off the power and tried to shake out water. I put it in a place to dry. (This happened to my son’s cell phone, and once it dried, it worked.) This evening, about 36 hours later, I tried to turn it on. Nothing. I plugged it in to charge, and I could read very lightly–low battery. Then that went away, and now there is nothing. I think its history. This stinks.
Oh well, maybe I’ll be shopping sooner than I thought for a new iPod.
