expensive crap

June 27 2006

Why do expensive things always seem to break faster than cheaper things?  My iPod is still screwed up, and I’ve been trying for hours to figure out what is wrong with it.  I think I’ve read every page on the iPod support site.  NOTHING HAS WORKED YET!  I may just go insane without music.  What am I going to do, burn my four thousand song library to a few CDs?  I’m sure that’ll work!  Can’t take more than two or three, can it?!  And yet, my portable CD player, which I have severely abused in its two year life, still works fine.  How does a $60 CD player survive two years of being dropped and thrown, and a $300 iPod not last three months of delicate treatment and care?!  THIS SUCKS!
