iPod Touch Admin Password Lockout

Information Technology | January 14, 2009

I don't know what happened. I wandered away from the app store for a few weeks. I come back and my password no longer works. Now, I didn't think my memory was that bad but I entered the password 3 times and got locked out. WTF? Anyway, I had to hook the thing back up the iTunes (which is rare for me) and I tried it again - no love.

Eventually I concluded the password for my apple account was going to have to be reset. Once that was done all was sweet. It was like there was never a problem.

I figured I must have changed the password doing something else through the Apple site - I don't remember what. At least I'm pretty sure it was me...
