“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: [url=http://www.wepod.co.uk]http://www.wepod.co.uk[/url]
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!
