iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Hey, good luck t-slice. I’ve had a 5GB in Saudi since December 2001. It works great, and people here are buying them up!

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

AR, I’m with you.

I’ve got MiniDisc coming out my ears - NetMD walkman, MDLP deck in my truck, and one of the few 5CD/1MDLP decks made by Sony (the changer deck is particularly well built IMO).  I loved it, and to a point still do, but hate a lot of the limitations - and Sony has been ZERO help in working with the Macintosh community.  Though I must say the MDLP deck in the truck (augmented by the cd/mp3cd changer) is pretty slick!

My new 17” G4 and 30gb iPod are waiting for me when I get home in a week.  I’m trying not to drool on my keyboard.  And I’ll shelve the MD walkman - won’t get rid of my MD stuff ‘cause I think it’s a neato format, but I completely recognize the advantages the iPod will have in SO many ways.  I travel a lot for work - so the G4/iPod combo will be radically better than the iBook/firewire drive/MD walkman + discs option.

Too bad Sony had to be so proprietary.  A fantastic opportunity just wasted.

good job finding sadaam twdldee!  But take it easy on the old iPod! Save the battery bath for that old tape player.  Just my two cents.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

JL,

Well I can tell you that only after owning my ipod for a couple of months, it is still one of the best investments I have ever made.  It took me awile to make a decision to buy one also. But once I found the iPod lounge and listened to the members, I started wanting one bad!  My iPod has not shown any problems.  The battery life is as advertised.  I use mine about 3 hours a day and I charge it about every three days.  I am currently holding 600 songs (with room for 6900 more….yeah boy). 

Some good things about owning the iPod:

When your sitting there and you get a song running through your head…...it’s probably on your iPod or soon will be:)

Provided you have alot of songs…....just put it on shuffle and rock on and on and on and….you get the idea.

Throw a party…...Hook up the iPod to the stereo….and then take requests.

When a friend comes up to you and says….man do you remember that one song and it goes like this…..and he starts to sing and you say….you mean this one and show it to him on your iPod.  (then he will want one).

You forget what songs you put on your iPod….
You’ll be sitting there listening to your iPod, and all of a sudden a great song will play that you forgot you put on your iPod. 

And finally….if you get your iPod…..there is no other joy than opening the box and knowing….that you are about to have the power to carry 500….1000….3000….5000…7500 songs anywhere you go…..yeah boy.  So I hope this way to long post helps you out.  Lets us know what happens.  And keep visiting ipodlounge…..you can learn alot about the iPod from here.  Good Luck.

Hey, I found sadaam!

But seriously, tslice, when I get a 3G, I’m going to dip my old one in battery acid.  Or maybe some LSD! iDOP!

You iPod infidels! ..... You shall feel the wrath of MY iPod….. May your be plagued by the junk mail from 1 million spammers and may your undergarments reek of the smell of defeat as us loyally citizens of Irak (sp) rejoice and party like it’s 1999. (Sarcastic tone implied)

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Tslice,
I first learned about the Ipod when a buddy of mine brought one to a summer camp I went to (2003) and now I want one soooooooooo bad, so I was curious is there anything I should know of about the performance of the Ipod itself or the battery? I am a little nervous to buy it since its really $$$ so if u could just sell the idea to me i would appreicate it. ok thanks alot.

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

I am a PC user and the IPOD is amazing. I have a second generation 10G ipod and I have never experienced any problems with it, so I dont know what all these problems on the new ipods are, but i think the problem is XP. On the average, i am getting 5 to 10 errors a day while i open programs or try to get on the internet. I have to send error reports to microsoft all the time. I dont have a mac, only my pc, but i think XP is not that great. I never had any problems on ‘98 0r 2000. My ipod plays great. I cant wait til itunes comes out on windows.

P.S. PC’s are not the fastest anymore. Apple’s new Powermac G5 is much faster than any pc.

P.S.S. I just had an error typing this and i sent ANOTHER error report to microsoft.

To Glen,
For the Windows iPod crowd, the new EphPod supports AAC formats for Windows XP. You can get it for free at ephpod.com

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

so…........Has anyone else subjected their iPod to any other harsh environments?  Jungle, Antartica, New York City….just joking NYC. 

Let us know.  Was there a time where something happened to your iPod and you thought….“oh boy there it goes…bye bye iPod…..but it just kept on rocking?

We want to hear it.

sorry to bring it up again,  but someone here is an IDIOT

tslice, I agree with noname, go to town take a picutre in the city, with the people around you, you’re bound to find an saddam henchmen bullying around a woman or some other guy, at least its not a statement about war…

i guess that will make noname happy - I agree its IPOD only here..  sorry to bring this up again, I’m just reading and I m thinking JEEEEZ IDIOT..

(I m not pointing fingers at anyone, if you think the idiot applies to you, guess you know yourself good)

just to let you all know.. .with the recent firmware update. . .2.0.1 or whatever.. . .the on-the-go playlist works correctly now. . .you can add one song to it, start playing it, add other songs and they’ll play too w/o having to restart the playlist.  so for all the people with the 3g ipod like me. . .be happy.  also, to all the people with the old ones. . .suck it.  .sell your old one, get a new one.. .

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…

thank you tslice. I really mean it. I wish you all the best! Let’s all be aware and make the world a better place.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

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.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

@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!
