It's official, iPods are the biggest piece of crap ever made



So all of a sudden I start getting this on my iPod screen:



It also displays a web address, and this is what I found out:

iPod displays a sad iPod icon

Issue or symptom:

iPod displays a sad iPod icon

and

iPod is not recognized in iTunes
iPod is not recognized in My Computer (Windows) or iPod not recognized in Finder (Mac OS X)

Products affected:
Any iPod with an LCD display

Solution:
In most cases, the sad iPod icon indicates a hardware issue. If you are able to force iPod into Disk Mode, then it may not be a hardware issue, and you should try to restore your iPod with the latest software.

If you cannot force your iPod into disk mode and restore it, then your iPod is in need of service. Set up an iPod Service Request or make a reservation at the Genius Bar before visiting your local Apple Retail Store. To make a reservation go to www.apple.com/retail, choose an Apple Store location, then click on the "Make a reservation" link.


WTF is this? Has anyone else had this problem? If so, can it even be fixed? And how much will it cost me? Or should I just smash the ****ing thing with a hammer?

iPods = marketing

If I bought a different brand of player, could I still upload music to it using iTunes? I'd hate to have to switch over to something else, that sounds complicated.

Oh great, so I try to make my ****ing reservation at the Genius Bar before visiting my local Apple Retail Store, and this is what I get:

Unfortunately, all reservations are currently booked. Please check back again later.

**** YOU APPLE! **** YOU AND YOUR ****ING iPod!

I don't know, but why would you want to use iTunes? It's MUCH simpler just to drag and drop into the mp3 player like an external hard drive.

Well for one, it's installed in my computer, and I have a shitload of music in it.

And the other reason is I'm technologically challenged and I have no idea what you mean by that.

iTunes is easy to use, but it still can be a pain in the ass at times. It seems they want me to update to a newer version every month or so, and one time the dicknozzles even suspended me from using the iTunes music store until I updated my software.
