If you've been reading this blog for any length of time (and I'm pretty sure you haven't been) you know by now that I loathe Apple. Well, this is rapidly turning to hatred as I'm having significant problems with 2 of the 4 iPods in the house. Seeing as I'm the systems administrator in the house, it falls on my to fix this.
Problem 1, my son's Nano refuses to accept new songs, even though there are 700+MB available. Really sucks because I'm going to have to wipe the player clean, but at the same time I can't seem to export his playlists, so he'll have to go through and recreate them, I'm sure that will be a lot of fun for him. My wife's iPod will suddenly just stop playing music, no real reason, just stops, which sucks because that's the one we use with the home stereo on shuffle as background music throughout the evening.
Apple's software is infuriatingly difficult to work with, poorly explained, and doesn't have the right options in it. I'm wishing that instead of the iPod I got for my birthday a couple of years back (the one that locked us into rotten Apple cores) I'd instead have gotten a mountain bike (my butt sure would appreciate a fully suspended bike instead of the year old no suspension bike) or pretty much anything else. Argh!
