iPod battery

I have an iPod of the type that I believe is now called ‘classic’. I like it, and use it often. But I don’t use it for a long enough period of time in a row that the battery runs flat. And since I like conserving the battery of my electronic devices to the best of my ability, I don’t like to recharge them until they’re completely flat.

This is a problem, because whenever I connect my iPod with my Mac, it starts charging. The effect of this is, I can’t update my iPod for days, because I have to wait for it to run flat. It annoys the hell out of me, that I can’t just have a check box in iTunes that says “Don’t charge iPod on connection”. Then, when I really wanted it to charge, I would either have a button in iTunes, or use my external recharger. Come on, Apple!

Og så var det hun begyndte at generalisere,

En konkurrerende kanal

Hvor er jeg glad for, at udtrykket “en konkurrerende kanal” ser ud til stort set at være blevet sløjfet; at DR refererer til TV3 som “TV3” og ikke “en konkurrerende kanal”. Det andet er ret stor mangel på tiltro til egen kvalitet; hvis vi så meget som nævner den anden kanal, så går det galt, og vi mister alle vores seere/lyttere! Stop it, I klarer den nok.

The Scobble quote sold it… The content is pretty decent, but his writing is terrible.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
