My iPod Buying Experience

The iPod is a work of art and I must thank it for revitalising my taste buds in music again.  The opening of the iPod box made my head get kinda light headed and I hope that design lecturers are using the iPod and it’s box as examples of awe inspiring design.

I was an ex-dj (Soul, Funk and Jazz) and so have a few thousand vinyl LP’s as well as many CD’s.  The iPod allows me to dig deep into my music collection.  In addition I am converting my quality vinyl to digital format, which is better than just being sat in the loft gathering dust. Finally the terrific little mp3 sushi app allows me to put together a 2-3 hour show or two for friends over the internet.  And guess what it all done on Macs.

by the way whats the best case for it with regard to protection and accessibility?

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

One would think that iPod would do OK in 130+ degree envrionments. Remember that it uses a hard disk, and if you ever plugged one into a computer for a while, it gets REALLY HOT cause the HD is spinning around, and you know how hot hard disks get. This is internal heat, and it does fine, so it should do just as well when exposed to an external heat source (the warm air).

My iPod Buying Experience

I don’t own an Ipod, but I have heard that they are just about impossible to get off.  Maybe some spray paint might help :)

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

thanks for the tip, which i have used the other way as i am trying to use MP3 sushi to transmit a music show over the internet to friends and as i found out it wont play the AAC files, so i’ll have to convert back to MP3 and the same method works.

My iPod Buying Experience

Excuse me, can any one tell me how to clean my iPod with good results? the metalic surface always looks sunscratched I enclosed it in polyurethane custom fit bags for protection and looks and change them every week but these little scratches or plastic spots make sick.
Please Help

Bobba, Please be patient, the big time apple is having with iTunes music Store and iPod for PC will bring them to the PC itunes for sure, if no money for a Mac? I suggest you rip your CD

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

I live in Kuwait and I use my iPod in temperatures that are also around 132, maybe even more. I havent experienced a problem, even though I am paranoid something might happen… but since I’ve gotten my 15 gig, 3rd gen. iPod, the weather hasnt had an affect on it…. *knocks on wood*

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?


I got to this forum since I usually read forums before deciding on a product. iPod is not different, so I got a pointer from saying that this place has been most useful for getting advice, etc.

This forum is special allright! Believe it or not, I haven’s seen such a burst of rudeness in any forum for a long time - actually I’ve NEVER seen, period.

One thing is sure, with so much “help” and “mutual support”, I will look elsewhere.

One last word though. Didn’t you people hear about the simple technique of ignoring flames instead of arguing? With no response, flames fade away and together with them, their posters.

Best of luck, and happy iPodding.

I don’t think it’s ‘bitching’  If you’ve spent $500 on a mp3 player that holds 20gb worth of music, you don’t just want the play-que.  You NEED it.  Many people were too tranced by the cosmetics of the ipod to review it properly.  Many websites gave the ipod perfect ratings, but somehow missed the lack of the play-que feature.  I remember when I got the Nomad Jukebox with 6gb of storage, IT had a play-que feature, and that was almost 3 years ago.  I think it’s our right as consumers to have our opinions heard. 

And enough with the insults.  This purpose of this forum is to share our opinions.  Not insults.  If you disagree with what someone has said, then challenge him/her with your OPINION.  If you was to insult people, then please do it someplace else.

Wishing for a play queue for iPod

Oh man! after reading all about the iPod, you guys tell me that there’s NO play queue on the iPod!?! What the hell! I can’t even arrange my music on the move? Then what’s the iPod for? Is apple gonna make us buy an iBook/Powerbook just to create a new playlist everytime we wanna add music to the playlist? Get us the Play queue now! “On the Go” function is only a cover-up man! It’s not the play queue function…I GET IT! the play queue is reserved for the 4th gen iPod right,APPLE?

PLEASE can you implement on-the-go playlists. This is a very basic feature and like on the current ipods, should have been a standard feature. I implore you to re-think your current position.

maybe we could sign this petition
to get an update for the older iPods.

None of you guys would not have to re-rip if you had just ripped to 256Kbps MP3 or better in the first place.  Many have shown that this is essentially identical in sound quality to CDs. Sure the files are bigger than 128KBps but they’re still a lot smaller than AIFFs.  Besides hard drive space and even flash memory is cheap.  Time (spent re-ripping) isn’t!!  Up your sampling rate now so you won’t have to worry about inevitable codec improvements.

C Kizer -
Your ability to identify the functionality of the hardware inside the different iPods by merely looking at it is staggering. You are certainly the “Rainman” of the electronics world.

“YOUR THE IDIOT” - no my friend, you’re the idiot.

sorry pal, but that update is only for the new ipods.  Most of us with the old have to go with 1.3, or if you have windows, 1.2.6

...The thing is, we can argue about this as much as you want. The truth of the matter is, I’m not arguing that the Mac is better simply because it’s a Mac. I’m saying the guy is full of crap, because everything he has said can be shown to be a lie. When I said that it could very well be a problem with Windows, it wasn’t me dissing Windows for being Windows. It was me stating FACT that I have expierenced on several systems regarding to how it has had problems things such as removeable drives, or a keyboard for that matter. But of course, we can claim that certain things happen under “fantasy” benchmarks as much as you want. i am not saying fantasy because I am against PC’s, but because there aren’t any good benchmarks that work cross platform, so please educate me, all knowing “drew”. It would be great if you enlighten me, because obviously, I don’t believe you. Why? because your entire post hits things that no one else had even brought up, leading me to believe, that you just wanted to come off as a big man.

Do I have a life? Hell ya, I have my own business, and usually chilling with my friends, but that doesn’t mean I can’t actually know anything. “Wow, he has actually used both platforms, he can’t possibly ever see the light of day, or have any friends for that matter!” Brilliant observatioin “drew” but like in the rest of your post, ignorance shines through once again. I am not more a Windows Basher, then you are intelligent.

...The speed thing is not a big deal, because most people don’t take advantage of most of the speed they all ready have. You can *itch all you want about how the new “Hyperthreading” of the new Intel chip has blown away everything Apple has, but the reality is, anyone who has studied the way chips work, should know that it isn’t that big of a deal, considering that it is just the next logical step from the Superscalar archcheture that was shown in the original Pentium. All it REALLY does, is trick the software at the Bios Level into thinking that there are two processors when there is really only one. The only real benefit is that it goes to a simpler level of threading two tasks and putting them through the same pipeline utilizing the gaps that exist when the primary thread is being executed. The thing is, the second thread is not being execute at nearly the speed it would if it was REALLY being executed in another processor. The results I’ve seen don’t show more then a 10-15% speed increase. That is nice, but it isn’t earth shattering. At the same time, I’m not going to try to defend Motorola, who has been focusing on other areas besides CPU’s, because that haven’t been doing that great profit wise…

Don’t really care what you have to say, ignorance speaks volumes. I am by no means a “idiotic mac Zealot..” as you say. I use both platforms on a daily basis. Don’t care whats faster then what, and there haven’t really been any benchmarks that compare the two so I know your full of crap. Doesn’t really matter to me if Microsoft Word in XP does spell check faster then it does on a Mac. Everyone I know that has ever used a mac for more then 30 min loves it, looking back, never really seen anything to the contrary. Call me what you want, I have the expierence that shows I know what I’m talking about. I never said that the Mac is God’s computer, I just said that little Roberto is full of crap. Once you have pulled your head out of your butt long enough to truly realize what it was that I said, and realized from where I am coming from, I will listen to what you have to say. PC’s are fine if all you do is browse the web, there really isn’t much difference if thats all you do, once you do anything that goes beyond clicking a link, you realize how much better a mac is. The best OS that Microsoft has ever made was Windows 2000, and they completely screwed up that with Windows XP. Windows XP is unstable for my use, and is dramatically slower then 2000. Please, show me these so called “BENCHMARKS”, because I would love to see if you can manifest your delusions into something that can actually be seen by other people.

If you think I’m one of those Mac Zealots that kisses Steve Job’s Butt, then you are wrong, I have hated a few of the products. I hated the first generation ibook, and i don’t really care for the current iPod. The no moving parts thing takes away from how intuitive the original interface and lay out really was…

I have been a proud mac user since I was 3 years old, but I can’t stand idiotic mac Zealots who do nothing but bitch about how PC’s suck and Macs are God’s computer.  NEWS FLASH, you need a life!!  I mean, come on, we’ve got Charles over here making statements like “It is a well known fact that Mac users are more intelligent then PC users.”  People make their own choice about what operating system or computer to get, and no choice is the wrong one.  Macs are not CLEARLY better than PCs and PCs are not CLEARLY better than macs, so how can you even waste your time engaging in a debate? 

I like Macs, but I have to go with the facts:
