Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

“What i would be interested in is a software database that i could enter info and then access it through iTunes. Sort of like a personal CDDB without all those stuupid mistakes. Re-encoding would not be so much of a hassle, then. The time to encode is not the problem for me, the tags are.”

You already own the database—your current tracks! Try the AppleScript “Copy Track Info to CD Tracks v1.2”
http://www.malcolmadams.com/itunes/scripts/scripts09.shtml#trackinfotocdtracks
From the descrip: “iTunes 4 has a “Replace Existing” option when users are encoding m4a’s to replace their mp3’s. The problem is that iTunes will only allow this option if the ID3 info for the CD tracks and the mp3 tracks is identical. This script writes the writable info from selected tracks to the info of a CD; when you re-rip, the CD track data is already the way you want it.”

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

I’m a student. I’ll be going to university there. Lebanon is more advanced then some people think. There are some parts of Lebanon that arent advancing really well and still need time, but other parts are advancing fast. The Mac store in Lebanon isnt really big, but its pretty cool. There’s also a Mac repair shop in Kuwait for people who have Apple computers or products that need repair, only problem is its pretty expensive and is aimed mainly at the businesses here who use Apple computers (thats my theory)

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

I have to say that AAC is an amazing step forward in terms of quality audio playback when space is at a premium.

Does is support multi-channel audio i.e. 5.1 or higher?

Patrick,

I can’t beleive Lebanon has a Mac store. I was there for 2 day visit from Cyprus and thought it was pretty musch trying to struggle back from civil war. This was few years ago.

But I guess they are moving forward.

What kind of work takes you there?

Thank you

sigh…. i have a favor to ask everyone who reads this article and the comments here…. can u stop posting political comments? this isnt a political site to start off with. If u dont like the pictures or articles then just shutup and leave the site. This is supposed to be about t-slice’s experience in the Middle East with his iPod. Not the American might or the war. so can everyone please chill about the war and weapons and start telling us about their iPods? :P

Do we really have to get the weapons in there?  My god…

It’s not political, it’s just showing the US Military might which was used against Iraq, right?

Now that after thousands are dead and the Iraqi Government has been overthrown… Does anyone on either side feel any safer?  I think not.

“There is one single purpose of this War…  To disarm Iraq and ensure that Americans can be safe again”—Colin Powell.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

I can absolutely testify that an iPod will NOT survive submersion in fresh water…I was boarding a sailboat for a long distance race (30 hours + or -) where music is an absolute necessity with my 1 week old 30GB iPod, and sure enough, the rule about electronics and their irresistable attraction to bodies of water held true. Kerplunk! straight into 9 feet of fresh water.

I stripped off, unwilling to let 500$ and my favorite white and silver friend slip away, and plunged into the 58 degree water.  I had to come up for air about ten times before I finally located my buddy under 2 feet of silt, all by touch.  I brought him up and shook him out, blowing through the jack holes, removed the port cover and blew through there, then left him outside in mild sunshine for 4 days, bringing him in at night.  The good news is that I could get the apple logo to show up, but nothing else would boot up.  It was enough for the apple folks to warranty me a new one.  Thank god for apple service!

I am bringing him on my next race on the 19th, but this time I have drilled a hole in the carrying case and tied a lanyard that will be clipped at all times to my belt. 

To conclude, DON’T BE A MORON AND DROP YOUR IPOD IN THE WATER, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH YOU THINK IT IS!

My iPod Buying Experience

Dell drops iPod ...
I read an article saying dell doesn’t sell iPods anymore. Very dissapointing after hearing about all the deals.

send them a suggestion about the “iPod glove” and maybe they will pick it up. Thats a good idea.

have you people located in the middle east run into any mac shops?  from my experience in non-western countries, most everyone uses PCs because of how easily and cheaply they can be “built”...

also, has any firm come out with an iPod carrying case built for joggers?  i’m thinking of, essentially, a glove that secures an iPod in the palm of your hand.  this would be very convenient as it sucks running with it strapped to your shorts, but it also sucks having to hold on to it tightly when your hands are sweaty and you’re sprinting…

i was only asking just to be sure, and if it wasnt for us Americans you wouldn’t have an iPod.

Anytime.

It is a life saver on a long flight.  My total combined flights to jordan added up to just over 12 hours of flight time and thats not counting my layovers.  Plus the Flight Attendants dig the iPod also. One flight attendant was thinking about buying one and after using mine for a little bit she made a decision to deffinately buy one.  I pointed her to the iPodlounge, so maybe she will visit.

Cheers

*phew* t-slice u just saved me a lot of trouble of worrying about breaking my iPod when flying. It’d be logical for them to work at those heights cause i mean, lots of people listen to music while flying…

JL

I rocked my Ipod at over 20,000 feet going to Amman Jordan from the U.S. and had no problems.

And Fadman,

What country do you come from?  Being so “smart” and all.

Just wondering.

He’s asking if any of us took it over 10,000 feet and what happened with the iPod. U dont have to insult him.

JL

I’ve never taken it on a flight with me yet, but in a few weeks i’ll be travelling, we’ll c wat happens….

JL,

You must be american to ask such a dumb question while providing the answer within your question.
