Tens of thousands of people read the article and hundreds commented on it, some agreeing with my frustration, others calling me an idiot, which is par for the course whenever you write an article -- positive or negative -- about Apple. Apple never contacted me after I wrote the piece, but a couple of months later, a reader tweeted me, saying that thanks to my article Apple had "caved" and extended the recall on iMac drives (they're made by Seagate) to include 2010 models and some 2009 models. I don't know how much my article really had to do with the recall, but if it did have an impact, that's great; I'm happy for the consumers who benefited.
Cut to last week, My 9-year-old daughter came to me asking me to buy her a new fifth-generation iPod Touch "because all the kids at school have them." I had one on loan from Apple for doing Lightning-based speaker dock reviews (I have an iPhone 4S, but not an iPhone 5, which has the new Lightning connector) and she liked it but knew I wouldn't -- or couldn't -- let her have it, I asked her what happened to princess bride discovery map iphone case the 32GB third-generation iPod Touch I'd given her, She said it was locked, I found that strange, She knew the pass code, How could it be locked?..
I wasn't that concerned. There was nothing on the iPod that couldn't be recovered (apps), and I figured I'd just "restore" the thing on my computer. To appease my daughter's want for an iPod Touch fifth-generation, I traded her my fourth-gen Touch for her disabled third-gen one. She wasn't happy, but she took it. "It's got a camera and they still sell it in the store for $200," I said, selling it. "You'll be fine. The one you want anyway is the iPad Mini Retina or the iPod Touch 6. You're too late in the Apple product cycle to being buying a 5.""Too late in the what?""Just be patient," I said. "Trust me. I do this for a living.""Are you going to fix that?" she asked, pointing to her old iPod.
