Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

iPod is the best music player in the world…and unfortunately too expensive for me and many many people…

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

I don’t blame iPod lounge for purposely writing those captions I just believe that they were mistaken.  I didn’t think it was going to raise this much hell, thats why I just left it as it was.  But as you see that clearly wasn’t the case.

Sorry iPodlounge, I should have submitted the captions also.  I will next time.

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

I’m sorry, I should have spent the time more time in explaining my wish rather than put in such a half-baked statement.
What is “CD Tracks?” Is that an invisible file similar to the CD log used on earlier Mac OS’s?
My problem is that I have three Mac’s at home that I use to rip cd’s. I also have access to a lab of G4’s where i can rip a large amount of cd’s in a relatively short amount of time. As you can imagine, I have a lot of cd’s so keeping track of what was ripped where is a problem.
I wanted a database that I could view and update. I also wanted to be able to update/change track info even after they’ve been ripped. (Is that possible?) Sometimes I rip with a cursory check and effect repairs at a later date.
I know you can export info from iTunes which is helpful since iTunes doesn’t have enough fields for me. But there’s the problem of having the information flow the other way…
Of course, if such a database was created, it would be great if it could be shared over the web with others interested in quality information. Or at least the ability to download other people’s allowing you to import what you want.

that’s some pretty shoddy journalism on behalf of whoever posted the captions to your pictures to assume that those two blips in the left hand corner of the upper-most picture were in fact ” two A1 Abrams tanks and a Bradley fighting vehicle.”  They could have just as easily been two tents and a freakin’ lorry.  chalk one up for ipodlounge.

Captain AL,

I’m glad you got a replacement. That would have sucked.

Good luck with the lanyard.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

OK!  Listen up.  I submitted my pictures to iPod lounge WITHOUT CAPTIONS!!!!!  The webmaster put the captions on the pictures thinking they were U.S. Army Tanks.  They are not!  They are actually Jordanian personel carriers and a anti aircraft tank.  If any one kept up with current events they would know that there was NO AMERICAN ARMOR UNITS stationed in Jordan.  So…..These are not American Tanks…..These pictures are not showing the “MIGHTY US ARMY WAR MACHINE OUT TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE” They are simply Jordanian army units placed on their border to protect them from a tyrant who has no reguard for human life.  Remember Kuwait?  The Jordanians sure do!  And they are not going to let that happen to them.  Not one of my pictures showed American Equipment.  They were captions placed there by misinformation.  Now I suggest that you either read up on your current and pollitical events or just please shut up!  It’s getting old.  Take your comments to CNN and leave this site to stories about iPod. 

Oh and by the way…..While I am out here in the 130 degree heat packaging, loading and sending Food Supplies, Medical Supplies and Aid to the people in Iraq…...What the hell are you doing to help them? Really….what are you doing?  Sitting at your computer and ######## doesn’t do the people of Iraq any great justice.  If you really want to help get your ### over here and pitch in.

Hey, I got so far down the thread, I plain FORGOT John had already mentioned this script!!! Sorry! :

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)

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?

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? raspberry

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

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.

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 ##### 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.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

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…
