Apple iPod HilarityPosted on July 27th, 2006 1 comment
So, I picked up my iPod, told it to play a song, and then it crashed. Tried to reboot itself, apparently, showing the Apple logo, then gave me a folder Whammy.
Yeah, that thing. So, checked Apple’s iPod support website, which seemed to indicate that this icon denotes serious problems with the embedded software. Well, I was a little dejected. I hate reformatting my iPod and re-copying all my music onto. Such a pain.
Then, this made me think of the Millenium Falcon. (Because, as Joss once said, all things do.) I mean, what would Han Solo do with a non-functional iPod? So, I decided to drop it from a height of 18 inches. Hmm, didn’t really do anything. So, I tried 3 feet. Blam-o! The iPod spontaneously rebooted after the drop and booted right into the normal iPod software. All my music was still there, and everything seems to be fine!
So, once again proving that the Han Solo method of fixing things really is the best way to go sometimes.
