Recording feature discovered in new iPods

The clever guys at iPoding have discovered that the new iPods have a recording feature built-in!

“Well, we couldn’t wait so we went to the local Best Buy and picked up a new Gen 2 15GB.  It’s going to be taken apart soon, but we first ran Diagnostic Mode on it.  It has a recording feature! There is also a test for LINEIN that does recording too.  We don’t have a mic to test with it at the moment but after “recording” when we listen to the headphones we hear the sound of nothing recorded (you know what we mean right?)”

If you follow their comments, I believe they just learned that one of the ports at the top (where the remote can be plugged in), is where a mic works…at least that’s what it sounds like following the posted comments below the story

from the apple boards…which were copied from ipoding:

Hot off the presses from the people over at ipoding.com, this seals the deal i have to get one of these new ipods.
To record right now: (only 3rd gen ipods)


Plug in earphones
Activate Diagnostic Mode - Reset (hold MENU and PLAY) and hold down PREVIOUS, NEXT and CENTER buttons at Apple logo - Release buttons and you’ll hear a chirp and Diagnostic mode will appear
Use Next button to navigate to “J. RECORD”
Speak into Left earphone when “BEGIN…” appears
You’ll get about 6 sec. of record time and then “DONE”
Press center button for playback
Press Play/Pause to return to list of tests This is just the mono record feature… as noted here there is also a stereo line-in but that is in the dock connector and activated by “F. LIN REC”

Nowadays, is it worth to buy a music device unable to record?

10G, 15G, 30G or whatever, I want to be able to play/rec what I need….
