Forums: Bigger iPod mini?, iPod Lullaby, Bedtime Tunes, Podjacking

This week in the iLounge Discussion Forums: the possibility of a 8 or even 10GB iPod mini is raised. Would you be tempted by the smaller form factor of the iPod mini to avoid a full-sized iPod?

A few readers are using iPods to fall asleep. While going to sleep while wearing earphones should be avoided, what other ways do you use the iPod to help you drift off?

In a related topic, there’s a discussion on Music To Sleep To. Have you compiled a definitive playlist to ‘rock’ you to sleep?

The subject of “Jack Sharing” (or Podjacking) was mentioned recently in a popular U.K. Mac magazine, a topic originally raised by a Lounger in the forums nearly 2½ years ago. Have you had any experience of a stranger asking to plug into your iPod? Or do you think it’s just an urban myth?

I love my 40 gigger, but would gladly trade HDD space for a small form factor.

i’m waiting for a 10gb mini w/ a color screen. i’d buy one of those in a heartbeat. i love the small form factor of the mini, but 6gb really isn’t worth it and if i’m buying a 3rd ipod (have a 40gb and shuffle), i want it to at least have a color screen.

I haven’t been pod-jacked, but “reverse pod jacked” if you will. A guy sitting next to me on a plane offered me his mini so I could check out his playlists. I was with my boyfriend, so I don’t think he was flirting…just a friendly guy willing to share wink
