"You mean when you were a kid, you didn't have music uploaded directly to your brain?"


If you are my friend on Facebook, you're probably already aware that my 2 year old threw my iPod touch in the (albeit clean, but very wet) toilet a couple of weeks ago. My amazingly awesome engineer husband actually got it to work again for about a week and it functioned almost perfectly (except for a little sound glitch here and there). That was until I let the charge run out completely and then...nothin'. This song pretty much sums up the experience. Except for the 18 months to two years part. I only had mine for (gulp) 3 months...but then again the Apple Care Warranty plan does not protect against water damage or 2 year olds. Needless to say, I am lucky enough to have a shiny new iPod and my tinkering husband is still working on making the old one work so he can use it for himself. We shall see. I also now store it at locations that are shoulder height or higher. Lesson learned.

Ouch!!! Sorry to hear that. Have you tried to put it in a ziploc bag w/kitty litter and let it sit for a few days? It works for phones that have gone swimming!!!

Hey Lisa, Thanks for the sympathy. We did the kitty litter thing, as well as a stronger desiccant "Damp Rid." I think that's what brought it back to life for a while. But like I said...when the charge finally went completely, so did the rest of it. Oh well...I'm back online now!! Thanks!
