iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Just had to say that the ipod works great in the 145 degree heat and sand.  One of the lads on our CATA team has an 20 GB ipod and some external speakers.  It has provided us a lot of enjoyment in some nasty conditions.  P.S. Iraqis don’t like Social Distortion, it does absolutely nothing to win their hearts and minds-I knew there was a reason we invaded-other than the oil that is….

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Hey T!

Man, I’ve got every respect for what you’re doing out there.  Although you had no part for what happened, it’s good to know that people are risking themselves to rebuild the lives of others.  Even if it’s the pay cheques that are doing the ‘persuading’. *lol!*

And I thought the ‘tanks’ were the current Archos Jukeboxes myself… oh well!

I’ve got a v.v.reduced in price 30Gb Ipod reserved for me - brought back to shop for some reason, reduced from

Ended up getting a Creative Nomad Zen and very happy with it. The Ipod 10 gb was 459 canadian, and the nomad was 474 canadian and it had 20 gb, lots of features, not as compact as the ipod but then I dont think there are any that are smaller but its not too much bigger and it comes with a protective case and belt strap. I would recommend this.

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

does anyone know if car MP3/CD Decks will start supporting AAC anytime soon.  MY old Alpine HEad Unti is starting to puke on me.  I’m looking at getting the CDA-9807 and connecting my iPod to it. It would be nice to be able to play AAC cd’s on it as well.
I just converted my Library to AAC. So all of my MP3’s are gone. And I don’t feel like re-re-ripping. Guess i shouldda thought of this first.

I’m considering to buy an iPod but I have one short question:  can the new iPod play mixed CD tracks gaplessly? Thanks.

Come on, Apple was just marketed out of the buisness from the start by Bill Gates, a marketing genius.  Apples are far superior when dealing with reliablity, security, functionality, and looks. Who cares though, I mean if you like your PC, that’s cool, keep using it, but next time you buy a computer read some about the G5…
I have an old 20GB model that has lasted a year of constant abuse, I’ve never reset it, never had any problem whatsoever.  I also have a friend with a 15GB version who had the battery problem, remember, as with every Lithium device, you must charge it fully before you start taking it from it’s power source.  That means a full 2hrs of charging!!!!!
I have to give Apple mad props for releasing the magnificent iPod, but remember that isn’t Apple’s only product, look into some of their software/hardware, almost all of it is great stuff.

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

I came to this site for some info on an ipod but like a few posts up its been nothing but a debate, pc vs. mac.

I cannot stand these debates because nothing is ever aheived and will ever be acheived. I have been a proud owner of a PC all my life after learning how to use a computer on a mac. I currently have 3 PC’s running in my room and have no problems with them and I think people should use whatever they feel the most comfotable with it. If you like a mac better, use one, if you like a pc, use a pc, it shouldnt matter to anyone else. These days so much is cross platform and this is coming from someone who is in the graphic business. I work everyday moving between macs and pcs with co-workers and clients and I do not have any problems.

Now hopefully I can find some usefull ipod information on this site :D

Is it my imagination, or does the battery in the midsize iPod
need to be recharged frequently, even if it isn’t played for a day or so?

New iPod Reactions: Accessory Makers and an Author

I have it, and I love it (I also own the 5MB one). The new iPod is a huge improvement, particularly due to the stand which I bought in additional copies for other stereos in the house.

Ease of use as always, and a beauty, as always, too.

Audio Formats Explained And Rated

I’ve never tried converting WMA files but you can use Musicmatch Jukebox to record using “what you hear” as the source, of course, youll have to make sure your mixer is setup before you record.
Hope this helps.

I really wish ipod supported ogg-vorbis.
Call me an open source zealott but I still believe that ogg is the future of audio.

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

Aaron:

This is an interesting line of thought - as a long time PC user, the iPod is the ONLY Apple product I have ever considered for a number of reasons - inertia probably at the top.

However, my iPod also provides insight to a number of reasons to be very cautious with Apple products:

1. I run win 98SE at home - like MILLIONS of others. If the lack of 3Gen support for Win 98SE is how Apple wants to ‘wow’ the Windows world, well that is just a broken customer service model.

2. Durability - the iPod is a scratch-friendly, smudge friendly product. IT LOOKS GREAT IN THE BOX - but I use it outside of the box (I’ve been dying to use that line). The premise of the iPod is portability - so why build it for ballerinas? The girls at Apple need to get to know the men at Garmin - they know how to build a rugged portable unit .

This is where otherewise great industrial design seems to fall flat at Apple.

3. Portability again: the carrying case provided with a $500 US 30GB iPod appears to have come from some southeast Asian sweatshop. Cheap and totally lacking in functional features. Slip, trip and fail.

My thoughts?  Apple gets a big MAYBE.

for the same price I could have bought a new PC with Windows XP on it .......

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

I don’t have an answer for your specific question, although I can;t see why there would be difference between the two.

I would say the following though - normal USB would be hopeless. To ‘fill’ a 30gb Ipod would take something like 8 1/2 hours, bearing in mind you’d be transferring data at maybe 1mb/second.

Firewire runs at something like 400 x that speed. I’m not sure about USB2, but it’s a lot faster.

If you were thinking about it, budget for a firewire or USB2 card as well - they’re not particularly expensive.

Hope that helps!
