Q: Great Solitaire roundup! Now can you do the same for Sudoku? There must be 50 versions! My wife won’t upgrade her iPod touch to 2.0 until she is sure there is a Sudoku game she likes as much as the jailbreak version she’s using now. I have no idea how to judge them and the rating/review system on the App Store is now virtually uninterpretable.

A: Actually, Sudoku was the very first iPhone Gems feature that we did back on August 1st. You can find it here: iPhone Gems: Every Sudoku Game, Reviewed. In this article, we briefly cover each of the 23 different Sudoku games available on the iTunes Store, and provide a rating for each.

If you’re simply looking for our top choices, be sure to check out Gameloft’s Platinum Sudoku (iLounge rating: A), Hudson Soft’s Sudoku Vol. 1 (iLounge rating: B+) and Electronic Arts’ Sudoku (iLounge rating: B)—the only three titles to earn a better than C rating.

I have a mini IPOD (about 4 years old) and ever since I restore it on the apple website, I’m getting a lot of static noise. I called Apple tech support and basically they tell me to do another restore and if that does not work, my ipod basically is tossed!. I can’t believe it. It’s been playing fine all along. Can you help?

Similar to Katie’s issue, I have a CD ripping problem on my 6 month old iMac.  After a varying number of normal rips, iTunes appears to be hanging up between recognizing the CD and going out to CDDB for lookup data.  The CD will show as an audio CD on the desktop, will appear in iTunes devices section on the right, flash a CD track list window and then disappear from iTunes and the desk top thereby leaving no indication that there’s a CD in the drive.  Ejecting from the keyboard usually works and then reinserting the CD a 2nd time works for a while.  Again after a varying number of CDs it becomes necessary to restart the iMac.  Setting iTunes to just show or rip and eject or anything in between the CD has no effect.

We took it to the Genius Bar at the Apple store, but apparently all the Geniuses were out of the store.  Our sub-genius guy apparently wasn’t able to process customer input.  Multiple attempts were made to explain that reinserting the same CD after a successful read a 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 10,000th time NEVER FAILED.  He proceeded, un-swayed, to insert his “test” CD (he knowingly said there were music files on it, oohhh!  ahhhh!) 10 times and proclaimed that the drive was OK.  This despite my wife and I had the foresight to bring an armload of CDs the Mac hadn’t been introduced to.  As a 52 year old electrical engineer that has programmed and trouble shot numerous control systems over the last 33 years I find it always makes me feel better when customer care types talk to me like I’m 6.

He offered to reinstall the operating system if we wanted to bring it back because the store was closing.  The whole point of switching to Mac was stability, unsurpassed integration between apps and hopefully having somewhat more elegant solutions available than reinstalling the entire operating system.  If I wanted to reinstall Windows in the vain hope it would do more good than harm to solve my computer problems I would still be running a PC and be $2500 ahead.

It seems I can prolong the onset of the problem if no other applications that use the Internet are open.  We are running DSL to a Time Capsule 1 foot away from the iMac.  The Mac connects to the time capsule via wifi.  OS X and iTunes are up-to-date.  We have no other problems with this computer what-so-ever.

Has anybody else run into this problem?

this is the THIRD time some problem has occured with my Itunes and the songs I put into my “considering” file after hearing them and wanting to consider buying them have ALL disappeared and been replaced by songs I already bought.  All the other folders are intact…  I don’t mind reconstructing them manually if I can simply see where they have gone on my computer!  Where are they?  Is the information corrupted and gone forever?

My computer recently died, thankfully it did so slowly so I was able to back up my iTunes folder so that I could install it on my new one. I installed onto the hard drive of my new computer and synced my shuffle to the new computer however the song count does not update itself in the new iTunes. I’ve restored my shuffle to factory settings with no success. Any ideas?

the central button of my ipod and the scroll wheel arent functioning. when i click, there is no response, it dosent even turn off or play.

the scrolling by the loop is also very slow, like it hangs for a while… i didnot use my ipod for a month or so, before putting it away, i never had such problems… it started when i removed it out, it hasnt fallen in water, not even have i tripped it down….

is it due to viruses? should i format the ipod from My computers????

i tried deleting all songs and playing it, but of no use..


where is an apple store in navi mumbai?????
