I love, love, love my ipod.
PhilBillPaul bought one for my birthday five years ago before the kids decided they were cool. It took me several days to load our large and diverse CD collection on to my iMac via iTunes and have all my music in one place.
I love, love ebay.
We’ve shopped on ebay for almost 10 years. I love to find ebay bargains and we’ve even sold a few things on ebay through the years.
As a matter of fact, I bought the big kids their first ipods on ebay.
I love google.
More information than I could ever absorb. There is rarely a day that we don’t “google” for something.
Put my three loves together in the same room and I had a very happy Sunday afternoon. 😉
My iPod battery wouldn’t hold a charge. Then it started freezing while it was sitting in my iHome charging dock/radio/alarm clock. I know that my 2nd iPod which is considered *old* and uncool but it suits me just fine and I didn’t want to buy a new one.
I went to ebay and bought this for $6.49 with free shipping…
I got the cute little kit complete with new battery and three tools from everydaysource, a great ebay store that we also buy all our printer ink from at a very reduced price!
Then I googled and watched this video so I could do this…
Disclaimer: Attempt repair at your own risk. But I do wonder how many people just toss their iPod when it stops working and it was only the battery?
And now my iPod works again.
My technical skills have vastly improved as direct result of all the great DIY instructions I find on google.
Remember how I fixed my laptop earlier this year?
Maybe I should apply for a job at Apple.
What did you do this weekend?
