I love the iPod / Fuck the iPod

    When this thing was working fine, it was the best device i'd ever bought. All of a sudden though, today it starts fucking up. It stopped in the middle of a few songs and then wouldn't play for like 2 minutes, and then finally finish the song.

    When I got home, I restored it to factory conditions, wiping off the 900+ songs I had uploaded onto it already. Yes they're all backed up. Now though, I can't reload them onto it because iTunes decided to be retarded. It takes 5minutes to do anything with the stupid program now, including load it. Once it's loaded, it's set to automatically upload songs from my PC to the iPod...and it freezes while doing this. Everytime.

    I've restored it, I've uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes, I've looked for help all over the goddamn place. I spent money on the two year extended coverage, and when i call the number, the ask me to enter my agreement number to gain access...what number? which of the 7 sets of numbers all over my shit do you want?

    Fuck this thing, I got it early just to have it in time for a trip I'm leaving on tomorrow, and now the shit gives me problems. I understand that guy bitching about his apple product in that online clip circulated a while back.

    Like all new technology, i opted to wait. The first wave of all things new are rife with bugs, glitches and other little fuck-ups that drive you up the wall and make your wallet ache with the cost of having to be the first person to posesse said technology. keeping up with the joneses isn't all it's cracked up to be

    I'm perfectly fine with my Sony IRIVER thank you very much. It may not hold 1 million songs at a time but it fucks up a whole lot less and i don't have to pay $200 to get the battery replaced.

    Fcuk the IPOD

    Nah, I fixed it. I win again. Hooray.

    Sadly not Hawaii, out west though. Headed to the bay to meet up with a bird.

    A Flock of Seagulls - I Ran (So Far Away) is the first song. how strange.

    There's something rotten in the yaddayadda...shit

    I had it working, then it went wrong again. It's nothing serious though.

    When I plug in the iPod, iTunes freezes. when i unplug it, it's fine again. I gotta call tech support tomorrow, but anyone know what's goin on?

    Seriously, just change the settings in itunes to not synch every time you plug that shit in.

    Too bad the nomad jukebox is the size of a 350 page paperback novel.

    Bongos though... there's an idea.

    Do you have a slow computer? Just wait a few minutes, on my 3 month old top-o'-the-line laptop it takes about a minute between when i plug it in and when it recognizes the device and itunes opens it.

    Before itunes came out for windows you had to run your ipod with Musicmatch, it fucking sucked.
