Worst Technology Weekend Ever

Friday, Jenn's iBook refused to start up. Then her iPhone died during a software update an lost all it's data. I couldn't recover the data because the iBook refused to start. Saturday, my iPod wouldn't sync, and then died totally during a software restore. Sunday, my MacBook Pro shut down in the middle of a sentence, and refused to run off off its battery. This is the worst technology weekend ever — every piece of electronics I touch seems to die.

Update: Well, chalk one up for good luck. I just installed the Apple Battery Update and my laptop is back to functioning normally. Wow, I've never had a Software Update come at a better time!

    All Apple?
    Maybe the problem isn’t as generic as just electronics :-)

    Ha, don’t worry, apparently people have electricity in their fingers and have to live with it forever. My girlfriend is a great example of that, she took my computer (I had it for 2 years without a glitch) and managed to fry it. She broke her one tonight and has managed to go through 2 modems (and I’ve had the same branded modem for 3 years without failure). Heh, she LOVESSS computers!

    Looks like you’re under iAttack :-(

    Hmm. Maybe you should switch to Windows.
    [note: I’ve been waiting for almost 8 years for the opportunity to say that to you. I think it was worth it.]
