So, as you know, I bring my iPod with me to work and listen to it all day while working, making for a Happy Kurt. Yesterday when I left work, my iPod had less than 1/4 charge on it, so I knew I would have to put it on the charger when I got home, or else it would die on me partway through work the next day. Of course, being me...I forgot to do so.
So, today at work, I kept glancing over at the battery meter on my iPod. Sure enough, by 3:00, it was down to its last sliver of power. Due to personal experience, I thought to myself, "Great. Only 10-15 minutes left, then I have to spend the last hour or so music-less." And yet, that last little red line of battery life never gave up. Until 4:30, when I was scheduled to leave (usually I leave at 5, but I had somewhere to go that closed at 5, so got permission to take a short lunch and leave early), the little MP3 player that could kept going. Finally, right as I was getting up to go, the music died. The last song it played for me, "Gift of Mortality" from the Bicentennial Man score.
