Kid got me a used iPod for my birthday, awesome of the lad, he bartered a few things he had for something he wanted and that alone was a great present to dear old dad.
Anyhow, he set it up for me and loaded a couple of pictures on it so it’d look real cool when I opened it up, which it does.
However it seems to be linked to his account and I can’t seem to do anything with it, even if I use his account password, if I want Angry Birds on this thing it seems it’s gonna take some doing.
So I figure, simple enough, just set me up an iTunes account and reformat this thing since there aint nothing on it.
I’m late to the party and I know the only way to sign up for the Flavor-Aide is to give them my CC info which I’d really rather not do so I can’t really bitch about that. I’m one of those people who only give that shit up to select, important folk who need it to transact actual business, not Steve Jobs who wants my info so I can play with his legally obtained and owned toy.
So on to the important shit.
I like Winamp but the iPod isn’t recognized by my Winamp when I plug in, is this because iTunes has turned it into a waiting iZombie, only able to be brought back by Apple?
The big reason for the iPod is so I can have my really weird taste in music in my car with me, most of the rest of the shit I really find neat but yeah, who cares.
If anyone knows how to let me gain access to some of the toys without laying bare my soul to the internet, that would be sweet.
So, your mission, if you choose to accept it: Point the old dude in the direction of how to take control of yet another hand held time sucker!
