My iPod Buying Experience

Yeah, every apple packaging it´s just great, damn no more room left, with all my powermac 8600, boundiblue imac, powerbook bronce, titanium, g4 and apple displays boxes, wife bitchin, but iPod packaging it´s just the best. (Every time i got back home I open and close the hole thing, kinda obssesive)
By the way AAC 192 Rules!

My iPod Buying Experience

well i spent most of my university loan on a new 20GB ipod. and it’s sooo worth it. but no usb cable was included, so i had to shell out an extra £15 on one of those.
and yes, the packaging is just as cool…

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

The bottom line is this:

Music sound quality is highly subjective. What one person
thinks sound great, another will find insufficiant!
Some people are very detailed as to what they listen for,
while others can’t hear the difference between a $100
pair of speakers and a $3,000 pair of speakers. And some people listen to the type of music were it won’t sonically
matter if you encode in 10K!
That said as a caviat emptor…

Music sound quality will always be better with NO compression or very little compression then with more compression. Although the average person won’t be able to tell the nuances between a 128 ACC, 192 or a 256 MP3 but if you are the few and proud that can (like me) then it matters. To a true music audiofile lover, quality not quantity should be first priority! Wouldn’t you rather eat one great tasting apple then a basket of half crappy ones!

ONLY MY OPINION, Thanks!

Ha Ha, the problem I was having was that I have 2 CD/DVD drives (one being the CD-RW), so I couldnt see the CD from Itunes. Put the CD in the other drive and now I am happy importer. Doh! If only I can work out how I get sound back….........

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

Hmm, it should work with no tinkering.  I am not insulting your inteligence, but you did highlight them all before ripping?  Have a look at what your settings are in case there is something squiffy.

MusicMatch?  I never got on with it.  iTunes just appears to be a whole new concept!

*** PROBLEM RIPPING with iTUNES 4 for WINDOWS ***

I tried ripping one of my commercial CDs on my Windows XP PC, using iTUNES 4 for Windows.

On popping the CD in the drive, iTUNES recognizes the CD/songs correctly and lists all of them.

However, when I click on the"IMPORT” button, it just “steps” through every song on the CD quickly and just creates 4KB files on my hard disk (instead of actually converting them to AAC or MP3)!

Do I have to install something else or do something else to rip my CD collection using iTUNES?

By the way, MUSICMATCH rips these just fine to MP3!

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Thinking about investing in an iPod. Can you record CDs on to them? Does it take long? Or do most people download songs from the internet?

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

Yeah you can, I have not found anything that it can’t do (well I have - more about that later).  To rip CDs, first, select the file type with Edit -> Preferences -> Importing.  Then slip your CD in, and iTunes should detect it and get the titles from CDDB, then highlight them all, right click and “Convert selection to ***”.  Dead easy.

The only thing I feel iTunes is lacking is the ability to delete music files directly from your hard drive instead of only from the database.

R O C K   O N !

All a bit new to this IPOD/ITUNES etc. Am I right in saying that I cannot RIP my comercial music CD’s to AAC/MP3 using ITUNES 4 (on windows XP) ??
If thats correct, what is a recommended way to do this? Music Match, Nero 6?

Thank you inadvance,
Johners

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,1366004,00.asp

“How did they fit all that in there? That’s the first question you’ll ask after checking out the new co-branded Samsung Napster YP-910GS player/recorder ($399 street). This latest addition to Samsung’s YEPP line of digital-audio devices is roughly the same size as the Apple iPod, but the YP-910GS manages to cram in a lot of extras—features the iPod lacks, such as an FM tuner, an FM transmitter, and a voice recorder.

At 4.2 by 2.8 by 0.8 inches (HWD), the YP-910GS isn’t as sleek as current iPods, which occupy just 4.1 by 2.4 by 0.7 inches, but at 6.0 ounces, it’s lighter by 0.2 ounces.

Like the e.Digital Odyssey 1000, the YP-910GS has an FM tuner. Unlike its competitors though, it also has a built-in wireless transmitter, so you can broadcast to an FM radio without buying a separate device.”

This is true. I play AAC files on Windows using J River Media Centre.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

t-slice
When Apple announced the first iPod I was serving 24 days of reserv (Israel Defece Force, I’m a veteren) on the Jordanian Border. So I took one day off, went 2 the bank, changed money and gave it to my girlfriend’s father.
When I got home, after 3 weeks I had one of the firs iPos in the ME (If not the first).
Murfy Law… My iPod was 4 sure the first broken in the ME. It was connected while my Mac went on sleep mode (Don’t try this at home!).
It still works but jams and skeeps alot.
Loved Your article, R u planning on continue it?
Noam
P.S. to all of those who jums: Me, Beeing In The Army Is NOT Political. It’s Mandatory. PEACE, SALAM.

“Our conclusion is that the Creative Labs Zen NX is the best-designed portable player around. Its perfectly acceptable size, gigantic storage capacity, good looks, good ergonomics and, above all, outstanding quality playback make this the best device of its kind on the market.”

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

I have windows, and iTunes for Windows, and a LOT of mp3’s but now am starting to get a few files in AAC through iTues. I’m thinking about buying an iPod, but it says that it doesn’t support AAC from windows, is that true? So is there any way to switch from AAC to MP3 if it is?
