I knew this would happen. KNEW IT!!! I bought a new MacBook Air and as soon as I plugged in my "old" IPod from 2010…POOF...BYE-BYE! All the music in my iTunes library vanished, just like that, in one single move. Years of downloading, buying, and stealing music wiped out in a matter of seconds.

After a worthless trip to Best Buy (where I cried like a child to the Geek Squad), and $250 later, I am now starting from scratch.

Obviously not the hugest tragedy, but I'm still complaining! Any ideas on how to fix? Feel free to whine about anything else here!
