An Apple a Year...

Well it's been about a year since my last iPod saga. So it should be no surprise that I, yet again, have had drama with damn thing.

This time around it was the sound. I would start a playlist or something, and after a couple minutes, all I would hear is static. Or nothing. This happened mostly in the car on the AM/FM adapter at first. I was still able to listen to it fine while I worked out.

Then about a month ago, it started given me static even when I was on the elliptical.

So I caved and took it back to Best Buy. Though that particular one was a refurbished model I received thanks to their product replacement plan when the original crapped out on me. I figured since the replacement plan hadn't expired yet it should extend to the refurbished iPod.

And I was right dammit!

So now I have another refurbished iPod (my fourth iPod total in case you're keeping track). And with this one, I can actually hear the music. Shocker, I know. That I should be able to listen to music on a device that plays music.

Fingers crossed this one lasts me a while. Though after three previous issues only a year in on each iPod, I'm not holding out hope that I won't have to buy a brand new one a year from now.
