Recently during a flight, I found an iPod.
No joke. Actually, it found me.
My laptop bag was under the seat in front of me, and when I was leaving the plane, I noticed a pair of headphones sticking out of my bag. Somehow an iPod Nano fell out of someone's seat and slid into one of my bag's pockets.
It was exactly like mine, but a 5th generation instead of a 4th. And mine was in my shirt pocket. I now had 2 iPods.
I asked around before people exited, and nobody claimed it. Score.
Fast forward a month later, when I'm riding around the middle of nowhere with my boss, listening to tunes and visiting customers.
He comments about my iPod, and my good taste in music. Because I now have a 'spare' at home, I offer him my iPod. He's never had one before, and he jumps at the chance.
I earn brownie points with my boss, and it doesn't hurt me one bit. After the ride-along, I'll just go home and load up the new iPod with my tunes, right?
I uninstall and reinstall.
I uninstall all Apple products and reinstall.
It works. FINALLY.
...but... all my settings, playlists, etc have been erased.
I have 22 gigs of songs, and now I get to sort them all out again. Rock, Hip Hop, Jazz, Classical...
After a lot of work and staying up until 2am, I finally have a working iPod again. Just in time too, since I'm hitting the road 4 hours later, and driving 7 hours into Northern Montana.
I may have a headache and am groggy because of little sleep, but at least I have some sick beats to listen to...
