My second generation iPod, the one with the wheel and four buttons, is gone to iPod Heaven. I wish it could’ve been through its sleep but it went down in a scream and I was its executioner! See, I was simply trying to sync it to my computer to update the music on it to use it as a studio boombox. I heard a weird diskscratching sound, but iTunes was telling me that it was syncing. I had my doubts about that but figured it was old. But then I got a weird message and had to face the thruth: my oldPod was dying. It was already in bad condition as it needed to be connected in order to play as the battery was pretty tired up but it was still working up to that fatal moment.
Forget about a tactile screen and even color. This iPod was just a music player and data transporter. It had replaced its twin who died within the original garantee and wasn’t the one who accompanied me through my trip to Norway to save my pics as a hard-drive. I guess it never developped a personality of its own and now, it’ll never be remembered… Sad how technology goes!
