Broken iPod, Keyboard, Hard Drive
Sigh. Making an appointment at the Genius Bar must be goddamn near impossible if you actually want to establish any kin of reasonable timeframe for getting out of here. Every time I come in, no matter how well planned I am, I always have to wait hours for anything to happen with regards to my problems.

I've got an iPod with a broken Hard Drive. Copying files to it gives me an error that coyping to the hard drive failed.

I've got a computer with a failing keyboard. Several keycaps have simply stopped working, and the D key is completely destroyed in a way that makes it practically unusable. (Removing the keycap, and the nipple, and pressing directly on the pad does 'work', in a way.

Then there's the issue with the Powerbook hard drive: when there's less than about 5GB of space filled, I get kernel errors when trying to read from the files (randomly). The hardware there is probably horked, but of course, proving that it's not my fault (since this machine has been beat up pretty badly) is hard.

Rar. I feel your pain. On the other hand... perhaps I will not be so hasty as to move to Apple. :(

Mm. My ipod lost all my songs and when I tried to reload them decided to break completely. All it would do is go to the apple screen. So I started following the steps it gave in on the apple support site and it killed my itunes. XP So I'm going to give it to a friend with a better computer to try to fix. But I'm pretty unhappy with it.
