Electronic Goodness

So Frankie Duex and I went to the Apple Store and talked to the guy at the Genius Bar. Dude looked at my iPod and raised an eyebrow. Then he said that if I bought the $40 AppleCare extended warrenty thing, he’d give me a replacement. Falling is still not covered by warranty but I think he felt bad cause I only had it for 2 months. So, I got a new iPod for $40. Not too shabby! :D

Bob 2.0 has shipped! Oh, did I fail to say? I ordered a new computer because mine is dying, and I would probably wither up and die without my Bob. I almost feel like a sellout because I bought a pre-made computer for the first time in my life but… well… sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. I don’t have time to piece together a whole one by myself.

What else… uhhhm. Well, my camera is awesome. Yay camera! My new Blackberry hasn’t broken yet, yay phone! I think that’s about it.

And in the un-electronic side of things, my truck is running somewhat better, I got to see my cousin and her new baby, my tragus is starting to heal better now that I started having the piercer clean it once a day, Tom and I got back together, Silverchair is coming to town (I haven’t bought tickets yet but I will soon!) and work is driving me nuts. That is all.

RIP Frankie Duex

So, Frankie Duex fell out of my purse for a whole 3 foot drop. This is the first time Frankie Duex has ever fallen. (… Frankie Duex is my pink iPod nano for those who don’t know) And uhm, Frankie has a scar on her screen now and she no longer works. Uhm. Yeah. You know, when I pay $250 for something, I expect it to survive more than one small drop. I’m not very tall, it wasn’t like it was a huge drop!!

So yeah, I took it to the store I bought it from and they didn’t want to help me. iPod’s falling are not covered by my renter’s insurance. So. To make myself feel better (because I refuse to buy another iPod at this point), I went and bought a digital camera. Yeah, I know, I already have the big pretty digital SLR but I really miss the days of taking millions of stupid useless pictures because I had a camera small enough to throw in my purse that can live up to the abuse. So, I bought a Nikon Coolpix L11. I love Nikon. I had my old one for like, 3 years before it died. And boy, did I abuse that camera. I also bought 15 minute rechargeable batteries and flip flops. Yay for retail therapy!

So yeah. I’m going to take Frankie Duex to a real Apple store because I refuse to give up that easy (after all, I’ve only had the damn thing for like, 2 months) but yay camera!
