Technology and I are uneasy partners at best. Sometimes it works to my advantage. While I watch fellow writers check their social media or struggle with streaming music I am happily writing with my iPod.
At home I prefer to use iTunes directly with my low-tech but awesome sounding USB speakers. That way my ears don’t get sore with headphones compressing the earpieces of my reading glasses for hours at a time.
I struggled with iTunes for a long while, unable to figure out how to play soundtracks. You see, I turned off compilations within the options to make integrating content between the software and my old scroll wheel iPod easier.
Yeah, I refuse to even buy a touch screen iPod. A local Apple repairman lauded me. He said these iPod Classics are built like banks. I’m down to the last of the three purchased, however, the first having run out of space and the second actually suffering a fatal hard drive failure.
At any rate, I finally figured out what may be obvious to others. The best way to manage my ITunes playlists is by using the song title mode. That way I can easily show my catalog by either that, artist, or album title.
Problem solved. What a joy!
I’m listening to “The Lost Boys” soundtrack as I type this. ~grin~ But I do like more modern stuff. Tune in during April’s A to Z Blog Challenge and you’ll know what I mean.
So, dear reader, how are you with today’s technology? Are you rather a (nondestructive) luddite like me?
