Future Pods

Just give me longer battery power and an exterior that doesn’t scratch when I look at it the wrong way.

Removable batteries and a changeable face a la Nokia phones would be perfect.

i like the idea of a removable battery.  i just purchased a 40G iPod this past fall and i’m already saving for the $99 price tag for a battery replacement.  i agree with sene_ncb on his arguement on why the iPod does not needs all this “excess” stuff.  i think the little white box does just fine the way it is (except for the battery of course).  i bought a powerbook two weeks ago and love how i can transfer fileusing my iPod, i’m a graphic arts student.  the only thing i would change is maybe taking the casing(only) back to the 1G style.  my buddy has a 10G 1G iPod and i feel that his is more sturdy then mine.  on a side note…what would the point be to a fm tuner?  don’t you buy cds/download music to listen to what YOU want to listen to, not what some corporate owned DJ tells you what to listen to.  what the hell is the point of having an iPod if you’re gonna listen to the radio.  go buy a am/fm tuner with a headset if you want that.

A look at the iPod mini

It’s funny how people can have such a heated argument over an iPOD mini.

They’re ALL cool. Get a life :)

How to burn a CD in iTunes

Since moving to the latest itunes v4.2 (wth AAC) encoding I have been unable to get my Irock Ibling to recognise MP3 CDs made from iTunes.  I have tried everything - altering the preferences, burning from the Finder etc. The genius bar Apple people suggested I bring my entire system to their store or try Toast.  Even the Ibling people could not help.  Has any had a similar problem.  Can anyone help ?  If you need more info about my problem, let me know

The iPod mini Reaction Roundup

Apple is going to strike a home run with this product.  I am buying a silver mini as soon as it comes out.  I only have a couple gigs of music I realy care to silten to plus with usb2 it is not a huge hassle to swap.  I am surprised that apple hasn’t advertised it more as a great audiobook player.  I know it is not the main reason people buy ipods but with audible and itunes audiobook support this is the perfect audiobook player.  Get 50 bucks off the ipod/mini if you sign up with audible for 15 bucks a month.  I certainly am.

How to create playlists in iTunes

When I first got my ipod the playlists showed up when I browse.  Now though I can’t get playlists that appear on itunes to download into my ipod and the playlists selection option no longer appears on my ipod.  Anyone had this happen before?  Solutions?

How to burn a CD in iTunes

I am having a frustrating time with Itunes! It is being very unpredicatble in the way it burns cds as it often aborts the burn by displaying “cancelling cd burn” and stopping before it has completed! any ideas?

“I already have most of the iPod Pro - but it’s called the iHP-140. Truly this is the Rolls Royce of players.”

40 GB and only 1,200 songs? iPod Pro yea right….

I heard the iPod is actually bought from the portalplayer company. When I looked at there website they have only a music player and a photo+music player.

So I think Apple will not bring out an ipod with video until portalplayer releases a video player. And they have not yet done this. So I will keep watching their website to see when they release something new.

Whatever changes occur to the “next” series of iPods, when do you think, or better yet, what is Apples usual release dates for newer generation items? I am seriously interested in the next iPod. I own a 3G 40gig right now and the battery has gone to s**t in only 4 months (will not play for more than 2 hours under ANY circumstances.

Wishing for a play queue for iPod

The on the go play list is great.  Thanks to whoever suggested it.  I’m sorry about there not being an update for the old i-pods, but I’m sure apple has it’s reasons.  I don’t know what they are, but…Well…: ( Anyway,  I read one post that described the OTG playlist all wrong.  The way the OTG playlist works is you scroll through your tracks, and pick the songs you want when you find the one you want, you press and hold the select button.  That song is then placed in the OTG playlist.  YES, you can add songs while another song is playing.  The only problem I have is you can’t take it out of the playlist.  You have to erase the whole playlist.  You can’t do it one song at a time.  So, if you pick the wrong song.  You’re hosed unless you decide you want to that song now, or unless you are willing to erase all the other songs, and start over.  The OTG also goes away if your battery goes dead.  Other then that, I haven’t noticed any other problems.  After reading these posts I’ve decided to do some experimenting.  I didn’t know that the old I-pods didn’t have the OTG feature.  Well, I’ll post here if I find anything else.  If anyone has any questions, or requests, let me.

Stupid people exist everywhere in the world. When a PDA comes out with a 4gig flash it will wipe out the IPOD completely. COMPLETELY

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

There’s nothing wrong with a Bush radio. It does everything the adverts for it say it does.

How to burn a CD in iTunes

Make sure that while you are arranging your playlist, the SHUFFLE button is OFF.  (Bottom right of the window).

Then arrange your songs properly, and burn the CD with SHUFFLE OFF still.

Hope that helps.

I never advocated adding video to standard iPod, it would be released as a separate line of product. Also we are talking about the future here, maybe 2005-2006. At one point Quicktime-on-a-chip or MP4-on-a-chip will be cheap because of its use in 3G cellphones. This chip will stream the video right of the hd to the lcd screen and to an tv output. Very cheap and low power small screens are increasingly used in cellphones.It becomes an added bonus. In one year or two, I’m guessing, the price difference to add video to an iPod-like device will be around 100$ Maybe you dont find any use about having a portable video collection that can be viewed on any tv and -previewed- anywhere on its screen (no this thing is not about watching a whole 2 hours movie on its small screen), and it all fits in your pocket, but if its sleek and simple and well integrated with software like the iPod is, it can become a must-have for many.

Also I don’t know why so many people dispite the idea of a color screen on the normal iPod. Again these things are increasingly cheap and low power. The normal music player could have the bonus of displaying still images like art cover and have the interface colored. Once you get a cheap color screen that replaces the b&w screen for about 30$ its all a matter of software wich doesnt really add to the hardware cost. If you dont add video (to the normal color iPod) you dont even have to change the processor.

why does the iPod need to have all these things added to it. i agree that a scrathing wheel whould be cool. but it whould take away from the dj experience. blue tooth would be sweet along with a mini air port card. xm maybe…the iPod was ment to hold a gig-antic amount of songs. and for some of us its more than enough.“iPod, now with longer battery life and another 20 Gigs.” -luke. its an iPod not a replacement for your computer. if you stare at your iPod screen all day, you need a hug.  its ment to play your favorite tracks, in your ears not your eyes. “Due to the components needed, such a product would cost as much as an eMac”-buzzy beetle. iPod not iBook

I’d like for Apple to include XM or Sirius satellite radio reception with on-the-fly encoding.  Might be worth a small monthly access fee.

I just thought I would peruse this thread, having the thought of procuring an ipod!

Looking at some of the caustic comments and naive attitudes I think it might be best for me to stick to my ‘Bush’ radio!!!

How to burn a CD in iTunes

I just burned my first CD from iTunes.  I was successful, however, when the Cd was burned it put all of the songs in random order.

How can I get the playlist to burn the CD EXACTLY in the order the songs are listed?

I would really appreciate some help on this, tried numbering tracks etc and nothing seemed to work.  I never had this problem with MusicMatch.

I like the idea of a video iPod but if this video Archos already costs $900 then how much would a classier Apple version cost?

how about having the album art show on the screen?  Even if it was just a grayscale image, that’d still be cool.
