Yes. Cry. Because that was one perfectly good Ipod that SOMEONE didn't take out of their pocket knowing full well that we are a "empty your pockets before putting things in the basket" household.
But it was too late to chastise, really. These things happen. And we had other Ipods.
Still, I was hoping to fix it.
We tried to open it as was described on many websites.
We succeeded only in misshaping the bottom. They must weld these things or something.
So I tried a last absolutely crazy idea I read on the internet.
I buried it in a jar of rice.
Organic rice, since it is a green ipod.
Rice, of course, is a natural desiccant. And while I held no hope whatsoever of this working, I had to try.
I left it there for two weeks while I was in DC.
I came home and got it out, not really expecting anything. But I was pretty amazed to see this after I charged it.
Is it just me, or is there something elegant about an extremely high tech device being repaired by one of the more primitive things on earth?
Yeah. Just me. :)
