Brigid got me an iPod Nano for Father’s Day, meaning that I’ve slowly been pulled into something closer to the modern age. I’m a real Renaissance Man. Of course, I rn into problems with it last week. It … er … died–as in the screen went blank and I couldn’t get it to operate.
Three hours on the Apple site gave me several ideas on what to do next. I explored all the easiest options, but none worked. My issue was such that after that point, all the options required me to start with a drained battery and then recharge. Seeing as the process to drain a Nano battery takes many hours, I’ve spent much of the last week performing a troubleshooting tip each morning, then (when it failed) leaving it to drain for 24 hours before starting all over again.
The good news is that as of this morning, it appears that the Nano is working.
But, needless to say, this was a little frustrating and more than a little bothersome.
It makes me double-clutch when I think of all those Mac/PC commercials that Apple is running.
