Trent in Pink

My dear iPod didn’t make it without a serious nervous breakdown through my trip to Palm Springs. On my last day I noticed that the stereo minijack has a slack joint. What a mess! If I fully insert the headphone I only hear sounds on one ear, if I put it in loose, I hear on both, but it’s very fragile. Of course the warranty is 4 months gone, so either I find some third party company who fixes the stuff, or I get a new one …

The color was an easy choice: they don’t sell the nano in orange yet, and my last one had a green packaging, so I went for pink… As much as I hated that color since my barbie days in little amounts I start to like it again. Anyway. The name was a trickier question. All my technical devices get a name. My first computer was called Anthony, followed by Flea (obviously a Red Hot Chili Pepper induced time), then all the way from Justin (yeah, yeah… I know what you’re thinking!) to Julian, to Shane, to Ryan, to Gigi (during the World Cup 2004), to Gavin, and whatever. As my currently constant musical background is Nine Inch Nails I decided to go for Trent as in Trent Reznor, the lead vocalist and founder.

By the way: I’m still hunting for a ticket for the concert in the Volkshaus in Zurich on April 2…
