podSERVE CD encoding service launched in UK

“We take your complete CD music collection and convert it to Apple iPod compatible MP3 format. Why? Because you have better things to do than feed CDs into a computer. Because you’d rather have someone else add all the track data. Because you’d like the added comfort and security of having a copy of your valuable music collection. Because you’d like to kick-start your digital music library. Because you’re a music lover not a geek.”

By Wolf: “When do you actually have time to spend your money that you work so hard to make? “

I don’t spend much of it, the vast majority is put into savings for the future. I purchased the iPod as a treat for myself since I had the spare cash, and while you may laugh the main reason was not its abilities but the fact that by purchasing an iPod I wouldn’t have to keep replacing the batteries in my Nokia music player. Plus it looked good.
I don’t listen to a huge variety of songs, I listen to a set few basically on repeat, with an occasional change.

This seems to have come about from a story on the iPod in The Daily Telegraph (UK), suggesting that someone could fill the void by offering an iPod service like this.  Within two weeks or so, a company began in London offering just such a service: www.wepod.co.uk
Whilst I think this is a good idea in principal, I wonder whoc exactly would be interested, how you would advertise, and how you would cope if things really took off.  I own a small business offering support to home users and their Macs, and as a result of this iPod attention, have spent a little time developing some ways of moving it forwards - it cannot work with just a website, because people who want an iPod may not have a computer, so they won’t find the site…

It took a few weeks before i finally decided to go with the idea, but it will take a lot of work, and no-one will ever become rich from it - except Apple.

There are quite a few of these companies out there, one thats been around for a while in my area is QuickDigital.co.uk.

They’re cheaper then the others and but not too blatently iPod obsessed, whats gonna happen to these “wepods” and “podserves” when/if Apple comes up with a new brand name??

At least QuickDigital have thought ahead a bit!
