this is why we can't have nice things

UPDATE: I don't know what Kevin did, but he got the iPod to work! woo!

I love my new macbook and I was grateful to finally get a new more powerful computer.

But, I have found when your computer is new and fancy, you have to buy new and fancy software and devices for it, because the older and outdated ones won't work.

I had to buy new newest Photoshop and Illustrator. I couldn't use my previous version of MS Office because it was too old, so I have to use the little free text edit program for documents.

I just bought a 1st gen iPod and came home and plugged it into my laptop and WAH WAH WAAAH-- it won't work with my new computer.

Dangit!!
