i Don't iPod
I was given an iPod. Yes, given. A very generous gift. The main intent with the gift is to download staff meetings and pre-recorded "things I should listen to as a one month old staff member." I have noted the things I should listen to, however, that would entail taking my new iPod past the point of just turning it on.
In my attempts to move past the "power on" stage I noticed that my iPod is functioning with Japanese letters. My name section is in English, but the rest of the menu is, well foreign. That's how techie I am.
I accidental downloaded all of the songs from the play list of my children. I am not interested in their song choices, yet I am stuck with all of them until I can figure out how to purge them from my iPod.
I made check marks on the songs I wanted to keep on my iPod, but cannot delete the songs that I do not want.
I was told that I am severely lame if I cannot figure out how to make my iPod work properly. I take no offense. I am teetering on the side of lame and dysfunctional when it comes to electronics. Included on the list of things I suck at doing are Sudoku and crossword puzzles, although those are non-electronic.
For now, I will either have to be subjected to the top hits from Aly and AJ, or take a crash course in iPod functions for the lame and stupid. At this point in time I cannot decide.
