“Apple’s 30GB iPod is an extremely sexy gadget. As a piece of industrial design, it is remarkable in its beauty and operability. As an extension of Apple’s lifestyle-friendly suite of music-photography-video applications, it is a screaming success. It’s fun to use, and if just seeing one is enough to induce lust, actually holding one is enough to tempt a righteous man to larceny. But is it a serious piece of kit worthy of serious consideration by an audiophile?”

I read this article last month while killing time at BWI airport. I later regretted not buying the issue to learn more about the “technical specs” of the iPod. Until that time, I hadn’t realized that AIFF files were supported by the iPod. I’m amazed at how much this product can do! Thank you iPodlounge for sharing this very in-depth and interesting article about our favorite music-player!
