Ah, the streak was close to coming to an end today, but I will not let this happen. Here’s the story of Maggie the iPod and her terribly sad passing. About two weeks ago, I mentioned that my iPod had died. Her name was Maggie, because Apple makes you name your iPod, and it was the first name that came to mind. This guy on my hall sophomore year of college and I were discussing girls’ names for some reason, and I remember he said he liked the name Maggie. I did too, so that name has stuck in my mind for YEARS.
Anyway, I’ve been running like crazy, and have been having to borrow my sister’s Nano in the mean time until I get closure for Maggie. Last night I brought her to the Genius Bar at the Apple store in Metairie, where it took all of 5 seconds for the Genius to say “yes, it’s completely dead. I can order you a brand new 2nd gen Nano for $99, or you can get 10% off a new one.” (it was way out of warranty) Knowing my current car charger will not work with a new Nano, getting a new 2nd gen seemed pretty good. So I told her I would take it. I asked “it’s a brand new 2nd gen? How….?” She told me that Apple stockpiles previous versions until they become vintage. I have no idea what that means, but she assured me it would be brand new from Shang-hai. Well alright. I already have determined since the new Nano will be the same color, it’s name will be Maggie II.
Also as an update, I finally got an email from my professor about my midterm. I got a 97, in addition to 2 bonus points. I’m guessing that means I got a 99. How about that? Awesome.
