Audio Formats Explained And Rated

the wmas are designed so they cant be converted or even played on programs like winamp and also its not really *buy* music because your actually paying to listen to it, and unlike iChoons someone knows when and where you listen to the tracks and make sure u cant convert them

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

Look, I love the look and feel of my new 15gb iPod. I love iTunes, and I love my new Mac. But, I am pretty frustrated that the iPod freezes and skips while jogging (yes, I have already returned it and received a new unit - same problems).  The active lifestyle marketing stuff is junk.  I wish I would have hit these forums in advance to appreciate that people don’t use these things when jogging.  If anyone has any advice for me/can recommend freeze & skip prevention when jogging, please reply.

I’m a Windows iPod.  I bought some tracks from BuyMusic.com just to try it out since it’s new and iTunes for Windows isn’t out yet. Of course, they are WMA files which iPod won’t accept.  Is there any way to export WMA files to iPod?  By conversion or something?  I’m not well versed in technology so be gentle.

New iPod Reactions: Accessory Makers and an Author

The backlighting stuff—the glowing buttons—is kind of gimmicky, but it looks very cool.

I disagree.

The 1.8” hard drive is what allows the iPod its greatest feature: form.  It’s smaller, lighter and sleaker than its competitors.

And that’s what Apple does.  Their stuff is generally more expensive in a price/performance/features comparison,  but it’s always sexy.  Apple will stay with the smaller drive, keeping the larger price, but have a sleak and sexy design that those using larger, cheaper hard drives just won’t be able to compete against.  Features will continue to be added and reliability will be improved, but the price won’t drop over time.  Competitors will roll out with 2.5” hard drive based products.  They’ll be larger and less expensive.  Feature sets will be similar.  Reliability will be stabilized.

In the end, Apple will have the same section of the MP3 player market that they enjoy in most other markets.  Not necessarily the largest marketshare, cheaper alternatives will win out there, but the best overall models in terms of form and features: small and sexy, high resolution screen, best backlighting…

In the present, the iPod on windows suffers from Apple’s reliance on third party software (aka MusicMatch).  Once they roll out a Windows version of iTunes (if they do), the iPod will be that much better.

I, personally, have used MusicMatch for years and find version 8.0 to have everything I’ve ever wanted in a music cataloging program.  It has worked flawlessly with my 10GB iPod after a few minor studders out of the gate.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Someone asked about iPods in the tropics. I’m living in Fiji now and have no tanks or fighter jets around to pose w/ my iPod so I’ll stick w/ palms and blue water views.

Some pics at http://homepage.mac.com/jsegal/PhotoAlbum9.html

To be fair, my first 30gig died a week after getting it. This replacement has been great and goes w/ me everywhere from dive boats to hiking trips to my work commute.

MWNY03: A look at iPod accessories

good report and i was there as well so i gave the place a once over looking for ipod product.  A few booths only had prototypes but it seems every man and his dog will be producing a ipod cover/wallet.  I purchased a nice nappa leather ipod holder from booq, which is a great fit with an iskin covered ipod.  Without the iskin it’s not such a great fit but it’s a heck of a case, as for theuir laptop cases, well they were the best on display at macworld.

I think relying on the 1.8” hard drive for the iPod is an Achilles Heel. It drives up the cost, reduces the options to add standard media jukebox features such as microphones, recording and video circuitry, but most importantly it limits the iPod’s capacity!

http://eetimes.com/sys/news/OEG20030718S0038

Hard disk manufacturers are now phasing out the 3.5” hard drive format and moving to the 2.5” format. Apparently the latest SATA drives use 2.5” platters anyway—the casing is just supersized to 3.5” to fit today’s machines.
 
Anyway, if the market converges on 2.5” as the new form factor, then the iPod is SOL, but all the Zen/Archos/Nuovo and so on that use 2.5” form factor drives will suddenly be able to offer 100-200 GB of on-device storage. Will there be a similar trickle-down effect for the iPods?

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

if i rip a track using MMM4 instead of itunes, will i still be able to listen to the result on my ipod?  if so, will i be able to benefit from the increased quality that QTpro will be able to offer?  thanks for the help!

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

In reference to the question re: copying songs from one ipod to another… I have found one situation in which I was successful. There are however conditions…
You must have a WINPOD and access to a PC with NERO burner.
-Open the winpod in NERO Burner
-Grab all the Music folders and pull them to the hard drive in one folder
-Do a find for all the music files in the main folder
-Move all the music files to One folder
-Connect the other winpod and add the songs.

Im sure there is a better way than these Neanderthal antics, but thats all I ve got at the moment.
