Some time in November last year, my beloved 1st Gen iPod decided to go bust on me. It outlived its claimed 18-month battery life by doing at least 6 more, but alas dropped dead, short of being a relic (no thanks to the smaller, lighter, thinner new iPods, nanos, Mini and Shuffle).
Have been planning for a battery replacement from NewerTech, supposedly leaps and bounds better than the original Apple battery.
As you know, I celebrated the birthday of this 32-year old decadent lithe body and still sound mind yesterday. Much to my surprise, the little cosy dinner I thought I’d be having with my parents and a few close friends, turned out to be a welcome overblown 30-pax strong event at Uncle Chillis, Mid Valley.
I will write about this, along with some pics in the next post.
Cutting things short(er), my bro Vince and Jo (who also single-handedly organised the secret congregation of friends and family), gave me an Sonnet iPod replacement battery! Yippee!
So, what do you know? I slipped in the new battery and it powered up, just as expected! My iPod’s back to bring music in my ears! Yahooo…
Thank you, Vince + Jo! Simply splendid! Muah, muah!
