I was finishing up for the night. I’d unmounted the iPod from iTunes and even waited for the iPod to say it was safe to disconnect, long after iTunes and Finder dropped the iPod from their display. iTunes was still playing a song. When I disconnected the iPod the gray screen of death appeared, telling me to hold in the power button. The song in iTunes was skipping like an old vinyl record so I hit the power button. Luckily I had shut down all the other apps and didn’t have any data files open. When it restarted I didn’t have a network connection. But the network came back shortly after I started diagnostics but before I got far enough to actually change the configuration. Even Macs aren’t immune.
