Mix: Motorola M500, silhouettes, Nokia Neo, vinyl

pic Even though Motorola’s new 5GB M500 player is $20 cheaper and 1GB bigger, Engadget says it’s still not enough to dethrone Apple’s iPod mini.

PhotoshopSupport.com has posted a great tutorial on creating your own iPod silhouette ad.

The Nokia Neo is an upcoming iPod lookalike mobile phone that has a scroll wheel instead of a regular keypad.

Tom Cox of The Times explains why he is selling his vinyl collection and switching full time to iTunes in order to make his life easier.

You know, I welcome the competition.  However, this is one ugly piece of gadgetry!

But it’s a whole $20 cheaper!  Who cares if it’s compeltely ugly and hard to use?  It costs less!  It must be better!

Right?  Right?

I own a 4G 20gb. I sure wish I could have an FM tuner and an FM RECORDER. I know that if I listened to the radio, Apple might make more money off of me because I would know what new songs and bands I like, and I would probably buy more stuff on iTunes. As it is, I have to go to the used CD store to listen to new music, and then I just end up buying the whole CD because I’m there AND it is cheaper than iTunes. Or better yet, just borrow CDs from the library—So, if Apple WANTS to make more money, then maybe in the next model they will be smart enough to add what everyone else already has- and FM tuner.

I’m more bothered with that Times article. The photo shows someone in a modern record shop clutching something from Mo Wax. And yet the journo writes about his 60’s and 70’s rock and jazz.
Now I know Mo Wax does touch upon the fringes of dance with artists like UNKLE and Cavern on their books but could you seriously expect someone with classic hip-hop, jeff mills, deep house rarities or breakbeat to do the same?
iPod is for listening - vinyl is for playing.
