The best thing about the controls is not the design, but rather how well they work. No player has shorter lag between commands. For example, you can move among songs as quickly as you can push the button and the music will start immediately - not quickly, not almost immediately, but immediately. The lag between command and operation is negligible. This is simply good memory management. Rio should be applauded on this point. It makes listening and accessing music more enjoyable.

The Karma’s menu system is so intuitive and nice looking that it doesn’t even seem to be as deep as it is.

Play Music:
Artist: Alphabetical listing with letters running down the left side

Album: Alphabetical listing with letters running down the left side

Track: Alphabetical listing with letters running down the left side

Playlist: Alphabetical listing of all lists

Rio DJ:
Entertain Me!: Generates playlist from most frequently played music. Mix can last 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 8 hours.

Play All: Play everything and automatically sort by album, artist, genre, or year.

Top Tunes: Play the most frequently played tracks. You can choose from the top 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, or 250 songs.

New Music: Play the most recently imported tracks. Choose from music imported in the last 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, 6 months, or 1 year.

Memory Lane: Play tracks that haven’t been played in a while. Choose from music not played in the last 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, 6 months, or 1 year.

Since when does the Dell DJ’s battery last 20 hours

Dell is being conservative. As a company Dell is refreshingly averse to hyperbole and exaggeration, unlike Apple. “First 64 bit PC my arse”.

http://reviews.cnet.com/4505-6490_7-30582921-2.html
“The area in which the DJ truly rocks is battery life: an astounding 19.5 hours—significantly more than the 16 hours that Dell claims.”

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

The bottom line is this:

Music sound quality is highly subjective. What one person
thinks sound great, another will find insufficiant!
Some people are very detailed as to what they listen for,
while others can’t hear the difference between a $100
pair of speakers and a $3,000 pair of speakers. And some people listen to the type of music were it won’t sonically
matter if you encode in 10K!
That said as a caviat emptor…

Music sound quality will always be better with NO compression or very little compression then with more compression. Although the average person won’t be able to tell the nuances between a 128 ACC, 192 or a 256 MP3 but if you are the few and proud that can (like me) then it matters. To a true music audiofile lover, quality not quantity should be first priority! Wouldn’t you rather eat one great tasting apple then a basket of half crappy ones!

ONLY MY OPINION, Thanks!

Ha Ha, the problem I was having was that I have 2 CD/DVD drives (one being the CD-RW), so I couldnt see the CD from Itunes. Put the CD in the other drive and now I am happy importer. Doh! If only I can work out how I get sound back….........

that happened to me….Do you have 2 drivers? if so, I have to use the 2nd one and it works fine.  but if i use the 1st, does the 4kb file

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

Hmm, it should work with no tinkering.  I am not insulting your inteligence, but you did highlight them all before ripping?  Have a look at what your settings are in case there is something squiffy.

MusicMatch?  I never got on with it.  iTunes just appears to be a whole new concept!

*** PROBLEM RIPPING with iTUNES 4 for WINDOWS ***

I tried ripping one of my commercial CDs on my Windows XP PC, using iTUNES 4 for Windows.

On popping the CD in the drive, iTUNES recognizes the CD/songs correctly and lists all of them.

However, when I click on the"IMPORT” button, it just “steps” through every song on the CD quickly and just creates 4KB files on my hard disk (instead of actually converting them to AAC or MP3)!

Do I have to install something else or do something else to rip my CD collection using iTUNES?

By the way, MUSICMATCH rips these just fine to MP3!

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Thinking about investing in an iPod. Can you record CDs on to them? Does it take long? Or do most people download songs from the internet?

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

Yeah you can, I have not found anything that it can’t do (well I have - more about that later).  To rip CDs, first, select the file type with Edit -> Preferences -> Importing.  Then slip your CD in, and iTunes should detect it and get the titles from CDDB, then highlight them all, right click and “Convert selection to ***”.  Dead easy.

The only thing I feel iTunes is lacking is the ability to delete music files directly from your hard drive instead of only from the database.

All a bit new to this IPOD/ITUNES etc. Am I right in saying that I cannot RIP my comercial music CD’s to AAC/MP3 using ITUNES 4 (on windows XP) ??
If thats correct, what is a recommended way to do this? Music Match, Nero 6?

Thank you inadvance,

“How did they fit all that in there? That’s the first question you’ll ask after checking out the new co-branded Samsung Napster YP-910GS player/recorder ($399 street). This latest addition to Samsung’s YEPP line of digital-audio devices is roughly the same size as the Apple iPod, but the YP-910GS manages to cram in a lot of extras

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

t-slice
When Apple announced the first iPod I was serving 24 days of reserv (Israel Defece Force, I’m a veteren) on the Jordanian Border. So I took one day off, went 2 the bank, changed money and gave it to my girlfriend’s father.
When I got home, after 3 weeks I had one of the firs iPos in the ME (If not the first).
Murfy Law… My iPod was 4 sure the first broken in the ME. It was connected while my Mac went on sleep mode (Don’t try this at home!).
It still works but jams and skeeps alot.
Loved Your article, R u planning on continue it?
Noam
P.S. to all of those who jums: Me, Beeing In The Army Is NOT Political. It’s Mandatory. PEACE, SALAM.
