Smack the Mac

Jen and her husband have an iPod that went belly up a few weeks ago, and I told her that before she tossed it or traded it in for a new one, she should let my knowledgeable-of-all-things-Mac husband take a look.

Today when were were there for dinner, he checked it out. After turning it on and getting Sad Mac, he asked, "Can I try something?" and then dropped it on the floor. He then placed it in one hand, face down, and smacked it on it's back a few times with the other. He turned it on... and it worked. The harddrive was wiped, but the iPod itself was functional.

Rob is one cool dude.
