There is such an unspoken love between men and their toys.
I am totally in love with my iPod Touch!
I got mine last year and we have been making sweet music ever since.
But over the weekend, we had a spat. In fact, it was our first lovers’ quarrel.
I turned on my iTunes. With blaring music, I updated my artworks. I noticed I had two entries for the same song in my library. So I decided to erase one.
I hit the delete button in my laptop and the system did not respond. I decided to again click delete and the unimaginable happened.
My iTunes froze!
Panic stricken, I pulled the USB plug of my beloved gadget.
With my laptop rebooted and the iPod hooked, the artworks I was tediously working on for an entire day disappeared!
I cursed and wept like an unrequited lover. Similar to all my relationships, past and present, it is flawed.
I called Power Mac, its service center. They weren’t much help. Not only were they hard to contact, the person I spoke with knew almost nothing.
Perfect. I was back to square one.
I manually tried to rearrange my artworks. That didn’t work either. I am now thinking of reformatting my iPod.
Gadgets are like women. They are both temperamental.
Gadgets, just like women, are also expensive to keep.
