After a less than two-hour drive, we were getting all set up and my iPod was dead! That was a bit disturbing because the indicator light on the car charger appeared to be working just fine. Well, not having my tunes was not the end of the world; we had plenty of CD's and a portable CD player to entertain us.
Upon my return home I connected the iPod into my laptop. Nothing. My desktop. Zip. The Bose SoundDock. Nada. It was dead.
Thank heaven my music is in the iTunes file on my desktop, so I haven't lost anything except the portability and overall cuteness of this shiny, bright green little bundle of fun. On the upside, I think I paid $250 for it five years ago and a new iPod Touch is going to give me 8GB for $229.
Wait . . . did I just say that spending $229 two weeks before Thanksgiving was the UPSIDE? Geez...
