Earlier today the iPod froze. The screen went black and it would not charge, it would not come on, nothing. It would just beep when the button was pressed.
Norm started to get worried, wanting to look for the instruction manual - I do have to insert at this moment that we have one drawer in the living room dedicated to all the manuals. When I say all the manuals I mean all the manuals - rice cooker manual: in there. A/C unit manual: in there. Iron manual: in there too. Without boring you with all the details of all the manuals in the drawer, it's pretty self explanatory that "looking for the iPod manual" could easily take a week.
So instead I decided to use technology! I binged (apparently googling is out) "how to reset ipod nano" and within 2 minutes the iPod was back up an running.
What would we have done back in the day without ehow.com? Then again, back then we probably had simpler technological problems that did not involve resetting tiny machines with one button.
