Always keep ipod charged

I have the gen 5 ipod nano. It's pretty sweet. I got it for my birthday last year after my other ipod was stolen (remember when that bum face stole my purse? Yeah, not cool. But I will get my revenge). Anyway, I wa gifted this ipod and I loves it. It has cool games, a speaker, sweet display, and all of my most favorite tunes. Only thing I'd improve if I was its inventor would be the battery charging. You see, for some reason, this generation of ipod was designed to only be charged when hooked up to your computer (ie: ipod docks and car charge/transmitter things don't charge it :(  ).

Typically, I do a pretty good job keeping it charged. Lately though, I've been majorly slacking (Cut me some slack, I just got married and started back at work and I'm lazy mmmk?). So my ipod has been dead for the last few weeks. At first, it was no big because I had my favorite Shins CD in the car. So it was me and James Mercer jamming it out everyday ...until I really just needed to switch things up (no offense, James. You are and always will be wonderful). But instead of simply finding the cable and plugging my ipod in, I decided to lay my musical fate into the hands of the fm radio gods. Bad choice.

Have you listened to the radio lately? Sure there are some fun new songs on there, but they are played 22,576,844, 663,431 times a day! Who are these DJs?! I blame it on the man. I'm pretty sure this is all his doing. So then I switched over to the no fail KOOL 94.5. My oldies never let me down. ...until now. Disco, 94.5? Really? Eighties, 94.5? Really? Now I feel way old. Those are not oldies. Please put them back on the easy listening station they were always on.

Sure, I'll admit I do like a little Beegees here and there and I am a big fan of 80s, but I really just want me some 50s and 60s please. The way things are going, where will it end? Am I going to tune in to 94.5 to find myself drumming my steering wheel to Ace of Base? Wash my car to Alanis Morisette on KOOL? Pull up to some hottie in a hot red convertible (It would be Camaron, of course), roll down my window, and turn up my volume to blast the fab 4 at 4, only to hear NKOB's "Hang Tough"?!?!

My only conclusion is, always keep your ipod charged. You will only be saddened (unless you're playing some kind of game where you get $5 every time the radio plays "DJ Got US Fallin in Love," that could be fun)

  1. Andrea, I too have this same complaint about the charging. Also, the fact that it randomly turns on if your earbuds are plugged into it when you don't realize leads to a dead ipod when you least expect it.

  4. the best is when you switch between stations and they play the same song, simultaneously. talk about variety.
