There’s a lot of debate over which is better — Apple or PC. But regardless of which platform one prefers, they both have something in common: the Spinning Meatball of Death.
You know the one. It appears on the screen whenever there’s an issue, and it’s usually an indication that the system is about to crash.
I’ve not had the best of luck with said meatball lately. It appeared on my screen at work, and by the end of the week, the computer was hauled off to be repaired.
Then, the meatball struck my Apple TV box. It’s old, so it’s getting to be a little feisty.
Never before, though, have I gotten the spinning meatball on it. It seems like a harbinger of impending technological death.
However, the old standby fix (unplug it, wait, and plug it back in) actually worked.
But maybe it’s time for me to start researching the options out there now, in case I have to replace it!
