Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

Whilst I agree with most of your comments. One major fact needs correcting. I read time and time again that MP3 or AAC provide CD quality audio. THEY DO NOT. The sound from any of these devices uses compression and the compression used also involves massive loss of data.

You only need to compare the bit rates. CD has a bit rate of 1,411 Kbs. MP3 and AAC are around one tenth. Are you trying to say that nothing is lost?

Don’t get me wrong. I love the iPod and the convenience of AAC and MP3 files but using them with anything bigger than a computer loudspeaker or a pair of headphones is pointless, it just doesn’t sound that good.

New iPod Reactions: Accessory Makers and an Author

i’d love a case that can house all my ipod accessories independently from my ipod… dock, AC adapter, stereo cable, firewire cable and FM tuner so that i can throw this in my luggage and keep my ipod with me. does anyone make anything like this?

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Finally, this is settled :D. noname, let me also apologize, i admit i was stubborn, but u have to see this from my point also. I live in kuwait and i lived through the 2 wars that occured. The first Gulf War and this war. Even though I was a kid during the first war. Anyways, lets get back to the iPod.

I’m taking my iPod to the beach this week, but i’m having 2nd thoughts. hehe. I guess i’m just paranoid. Lets see what happens…

Well it’s clear that we both have different views, and that you were upset about the pictures.  I appologise. While I did not imply any political motive behind them, it also shows true that “a picture says a thousand words”.  I hope you can except my appology and understand that I had no motive for political gain.  You have brought this to my attention and I will try to use better judgement in the future.  Good luck to you also.

@patrick, so what was the intention of tslice with this picture? Infos about iPod? He could have chosen another, couldn’t he?

@tslice, I won’t go “toe to toe” with you,  because you posted this picture in the public,  so the discussion has got to be in the public too, don’t you think so?

By the way, I do not think bad of any of you, but I think this picture is offensive and was published without thinking about the deeper meaning it carries within. I think it might be useful to make people aware (especially Americans), that every action gets a reaction, about that should have been thought beforhand.

tslice, keep your eyes open, listen to the local people, if you get the chance. Good luck!

noname, a picture will have a political meaning if u give one. t-slice didnt post up the picture of him and his iPod with the two A1 Abrams tanks and a Bradley fighting vehicle because he wanted to brainwash us or something. So be more mature noname and think before u post….

sorry if i went off topic but i couldnt help it =|

ok, tslice, don’t post anymore such pictures, then I have no problem. Show us the culture of these interesting countries, the people, not these weapons of the USA! Picture like these have always a political meaning, patrick, I’m sorry if you can’t see that.

dude. It has no political meaning. Look at the site ur at. It doesnt read CNN.com or something. its the iPodlounge.com. This isnt a place for political statements.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

@patrick. If somebody thinks it is a good idea to post a picture with “two A1 Abrams tanks
and a Bradley fighting vehicle in the background to the left”, then, yes, this is kind of a political statement! I would feel bad if I would’nt react on something stupid like that, sorry.

yeah u do look like Kevin Smith… hmm… u should start growing ur hair to look like Silent Bob.

My favorite Silent Bob moment was in Mallrats when he put a bunch of coins in a sock and was trying to knock out that secuirity guard but he slipped and missed. now THATS comedy.

I just wish I had his money. Maybe I should get me a trench coat and be his stunt double.

My favorite Silent Bob moment…...

When Silent Bob and Jay were siting in front of the store on “Clerks” and they were playing the music.  When Silent Bob started Busting-A-Move…  I about died laughing.

My iPod Buying Experience

Just ordered a 15GB ipod from Dell… on sale and with a coupon, the total price came out to be $314, shipped.

I never would have gotten such a sweet deal if it weren’t for this site!

I am a big fan of old school hip hop.  GrandMaster Flash and the Furious Five, Kurtis Blow, Afrika Bambatta, Dougie Fresh, Slick Rick, Boogie Down Productions…etc

A favorite would be Eric B and Rakim…

Favorite Song…Microphone Fiend

Favorite verse…......

“Cause I grab the mic and try to say yes y’all….they try to take it…..and say that I’m to small….Cool…..cause I don’t get upset…..i kick a hole in the speaker….pull the plug then I jet!”


thats me.

noname, this isnt a political article, it has nothing to do with international laws or anything. its about the iPod, so lighten up dude. t-slice is just here to tell us about how his iPod is doing, not his political views. :D

U should not go into Irak. No American should be in Irak. This war was against international laws. the troups are not responsible for it, but every soldier is responsible for his deeds, as is everybody. So, tslice, if you go to Irak, you are, a whee bit, responsible for the suffering of the Irakis. They suffered enough already from Saddam. Go home…
