Backstage: iPod, iPod, iPod, iRiver

One shining feature that iriver has is that it doesnt tether you to software to upload/download.  I like the idea of being able to use it as a hard drive, dragging and dropping music through windows explorer.  There is no need to separate files and music.  I can therefore transfer my music collection very easily.  Not to mention it comes with a remote…

Backstage: iLounge on new servers

sc, you’re absolutey right about changing to CSS… I’ve thought about that in the past and am looking forward to converting to 100% CSS in the near future.

page loads are much better now, although the next task should be re-doing the entire site into CSS. the design you have can be easily done with CSS and no tables. should help lower filesizes of pages and increase load speeds a bit more.

Backstage: Early iPod 4G review comments

ok imagine u were in my shoes…u never bought an ipod but ur interested…ur options r
1)get an ipod min(original plan)
-or-
2)get a new 20gb 4g ipod for 50$ more

i have around 2gb of music so that kinda perfect for an ipod mini, nd also ive heard that a mini is more scratch resistant and more durable…but the 4g has more value per dollar….so i dunno…what would u do?

by the way. I know that a lot of you guys talk about how there could be improvements on the ipod. If you really feel like something can change, just go to apple.com. Then go to itunes and ipod, then when you click on ipod, you scroll down and fill out a feed back form, where you can suggest ideas, and problems that you have to apple. I asked them for a longer battery life, and a little smaller size, and they delivered

I would have to say I am very keen to get my hands on a new G4.

Hi Jeremy. The review was great! Very thorough and articulate considering the minor changes from 3G to 4G. Many thanks for your hard work.

I was just wondering when the Power Users review would be coming out as it was mentioned in the review.

Thanks again and keep up the great work!

One last thing, is there any way to donate to the site? Do you guys take donations?

Backstage: iPods taking slow boat from China

Hi Jeremy.

Well, I just called Apple and it still hasn’t shipped but the guy said it’s PREPARED and ready to ship today. It’s actually Saturday in Shanghai so I’m not inclined to believe this guy. Anyway, I’m departing for Shanghai next Thursday and if the iPod doesn’t get here by Wednesday evening, I’m so screwed. I’ll be gone for a prolong period of time.

I gave Apple a try. If they fail me this time, I’ll most likely not be coming back.

Please keep reminding Dennis to post my final review (PacRim iShield II)... It’s been done for ages now :D

Backstage: Early iPod 4G review comments

My apologies if this posts twice.  I’m not sure if the first one went thru.
Does anyone know for sure if the increased battery life is due just to the software update?  It would seem more likely that they’d have increased the cache (or RAM) in the 4G iPod to get the longer battery life.  I also read somewhere that the 3G had a 32MB cache.  Can anyone confirm if it’s been changed on the 4G?  If that’s the case, then loading the 4G firmware wouldn’t really do much for the 3G, right?

MikeM: That was no complaint - trust me, I’ve read tons of them from all sorts of spoiled journalists whose desks are filled with great stuff. It was merely a reflection on the fact that at some point (when your fun hobby turns professional), you temporarily relinquish the “fun” part while you’re doing your job. And of course I’m not looking for anyone to feel sorry for me - after all, I’ll be having my fun soon enough. grin

Bikepodmini: Well, the review’s live now, so I guess I’ll have to pass. wink And thanks for what you said. I take product reviews very seriously for a number of reasons, and firmly believe that an “excited” rating means nothing if you’re excited about everything. The upcoming changes to our review system (from icons to A through F letter grades, pluses and minuses) are designed to give people an even better summary sense of our feelings.

Hey Jeremy.  Send that 40Gigger over to me, and I’ll do the review for it!  =)  LOL.

Send me a PM, and I’ll give you the address…

Really, thanks for all the great reviews that you do here.  I’m tired of all those places that review gadgets and stuff, and always say everything positive about them.  It’s like, what is the point of reviewing everything, if everything is going to get a good rating.  Let’s be real, folks.

Please continue to complain about having too many new iPods and cool accessories to review. I’m sure we’ll all feel very sorry for you at some point.

Backstage: Apple drops Remote and Case pack-ins

The case and remote was carried on the high-end 40GB.  Given that they upgraded the mid-level to 40GB (and kept the mid-line price) and the low-level to 20GB, it stands to reason that these options will be bundled with the new high-end 60GB model, coming out in a few months. 
This way, Apple can SAY they lowered, the price, when in reality, they just upped the capacity. That’s why the 15GB was dropped as well.

Backstage: Early iPod 4G review comments

Sound quality will probably be identical to all of the other ipod’s.

While i love my 3G ipod, only about 6h30 of play time (changing songs every now and then) gets to me! With 12h of battery life i would trade it in for a 4G any day!

Oh and just a thought, does anyone think it’s possible to make the 3G ipod take the new firmware…

Then we could see if the improved battery times also apply to the older ipod’s (with new software). And we could use all the cool stuff like multiple on-the-go playlists!

We could try and copy the firmware partition on a new 4G ipod to a 3G one’s through linux or macOS, like its possible to change the firmware on 100dB limited ipods to unlock them…

Worth a try….

The question isn’t whether an obvious genius like the previous poster can use a given MP3 player, but whether the average person - say, your grandmother - could do so without hours of training. The iPod is in a league of its own in this regard.

Lancer: Both of our Apple Store-ordered 40s arrived without incident, two different addresses. Any luck?

Backstage Opinion: Is the Click Wheel right for you?

i much prefer my 3G 40GB control set.. for so many reasons..

and, though I am a diehard Apple freak/lover (ask anyone who knows me), I’m actually quite upset at a few other issues on the 4G front..
