For the second time, today I had to take my iPod into the Apple Store so they could remove a silica gel bead from one of those packets that got lodged into the headphone jack.
I was not going to make a 6 hour roadtrip without being able to plug in the auxiliary cord.
Second time!! How have I not learned?
Apparently this is a common problem. Ladies and gents, clean out those silica gel packs.
PS - I am now another year older. Yay!
