Beware No2: iPod

If you've got an Apple iPod and your smart playlists either don't work, or have stopped working, it may well be because the clock's reset itself.

Unlike clock radios from the early 80s, the time on an iPod doesn't start at 12:00 AM on 1/1/02 the moment it reboots. The system decides it will stay having *no* time until it's set, so all your syncing will be for nowt.

Put your time in the clock, and suddenly things you've listened to in the last month will stop dropping out of time-based smart playlists, just like they were supposed to!
