Rainy Day Quandaries

Here is an exchange between The College Boy and me via Facebook:

Me: Where is the battery in my Ipod shuffle, and how do I shuffle?

And how do I download music? How do I know if I will go to jail or not?

College Boy: The battery is inside of it. To charge it you just hook it up to the USB cable it came with. To shuffle, you move the button on the edge of it to the crossed arrows rather than the arrows moving in a circle. Then it will play songs in a random order.

You can download anything in the iTunes store in the iTunes program and you will for certain not go to jail. You can find free recordings in a lot of places online, and you will for certain not go to jail for downloading those either, as long as you know they were intended to be free. I download a lot of music from *******, but you probably wouldn't like most of the stuff they put up. They put new recordings from popular bands up every day though.


This morning I went to iTunes, and couldn't figure out how to do it. I went to **** , as recommended by The College Boy, and I typed "Yo Yo Ma" into the search box, and it came up as "none to be found".

How could they not find any Yo Yo Ma music?!

So as it stands now I have 3 songs and a dead battery on my iPod Shuffle, which until now I did not know HOW to shuffle, and when I have been going on my 7.5 mile walk/runs (still more walk than run, but that is due to change next week), I have simply listened to 2 jazz and one African song, over and over and over again.

Next stop: This American Life. Maybe I can figure out how to get some stories on this thing...

Being that you are my computer guru, this completely scares and disappoints me! I can't work one either, they overwhelm me, I don't have any APPS on my phone either, that completely scares an disappoints my children as well.

You have to figure out iTunes. You can get all sorts of podcasts (probably This American Life). Get Claire to show you some day.
