All We Need is a Reset Button

I don’t know what it is about kids and iPods.  Sometimes I think I should expand my consulting practice to include the fixing, resetting, and yes, disposing of unusable iPods.  Seems my two boys have a knack for doing things to their iPods for which they just weren’t designed. 

Oh, you know: laundering them, leaving them outside in the rain, stepping on them, sitting on their chair on top of them.  And then, they wonder why they don’t work anymore.  Gee, how I wonder.  image

One interesting aspect of this is an application Apple provides on there support site that let’s you completely reset an iPod.  It’s called, quite appropriately, the iPod Reset Utility:

So simplistic, yet so powerful.  Think of it as a mulligan for your iPod.  Imagine how nice it would be to have a "do-over" available; the ability to reset after some awful experience.  Let that be our thought for this New Year’s Day.  A fresh start; a proverbial reset button.

    Lawson and iPods. Not much overlap, I suppose. Check out:

    Funny enough, though, I always listen to my iPod while working on Lawson.

    Lawson, all major software for that matter, needs Apple’s Time Capsule.

    I would love to revert back easily to previous version when a newly install patch breaks other things!!

    Maybe Apple will buy Lawson, they already have similar commercials! ūüôā

    BTW, kids aren’t the only ones that washes their iPod………..
