iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

No update for 2nd-gen ipods, what a surprise….I’m getting a 60GB Nomad Zen when it comes out, if I’m going to get an upgraded product, I might as well go all the way…the Apple take on this situation really annoys me, I’ll take my money where I’ll get some respect.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

Well I’m trying the update and it just keeps saying “Can’t open iPod” when I try to run it…  Anyone got any ideas as to what could be wrong?

Apple Store: Refurbished 20GB iPod for $299

I recently ordered a 5GB refurb from apple store on June 7th.  It was supposed to ship on June 11th and ended up being delayed 3 more times: to the 13th, the 17th and finally July 9th.  Very frustrating.

Warning: Don't buy an European iPod, its volume is too low

That’s not gonna cut it!

They should fix this defective player immediately!  Temporary solutions that hardly do anything are not going solve this long-term problem.

I can’t believe I paid nearly 500 quid for an mp3 player that a little kid couldn’t even hear!  Really, even my daughter’s Teletubbies CD sounds too low on my Ipod.

Illegal Downloading Hurting Music Sales

Curiuosly RIAA left out the older demogrpahics. There has been studies that show that in case of people with disposable income, music downloads actually INCREASE compact disc purchase. I know that is my case. I sample and try new music, just because I know I am not wasting my money. When I find something I like I go out and buy their CD (or CDs, or even all of their CDs), because I want higher (and consistent) quality than the 128kbps mp3, ripped without jitter control. My CD purchase volume went up 50-80% just because soulseek. Thievery Corp (and other Eighteen Street Lounge artists) got my money in form of CD payments. I would have never discovered them without soulseek.

This ties into Apple’s extremely weak attempt of peddling online music. I do not want AAC at 128kbps, even if it is better than 128kbps MP3. I want 256kbps MP3 (or AAC) without DRM. Or better yet, one of the loosless compressions. Bandwidth is cheap and I got time, but I can’t accept inferior quality products even if they are slightly cheaper (ie. ~$10 bux for an album vs. ~$12-$16 for a CD, not mentioning the cover art, etc).

Apple, make some effort and INNOVATE!

Illegal Downloading Hurting Music Sales

“Why Are Music Sales Falling? DOWNLOADING”

Really?

I guess the music industry totally forgot about the good old days when people dub tapes and record songs played by radio stations.

I am not saying its right to download unpaid music.  However, the music industry seems to blow this whole thing out of proportion.  RIAA on the other hand is like crazy pitbull attacking everyone in sight.  I mean, have they ever consider the world economy might contribute to the downfall of music sales?  After all, 9+ million people in US alone are struggling to find jobs.  On top of that, there are plenty of people can barely stay a float in today’s trouble economy.  Do people in music industry really except people to buy 28. something CDs when they can barely feed their family?

Copying music is nothing new.  It is a problem.  However, it’s not as big of a problem as music industry protrait.  All I can wish for is music industry take active steps to work on this issue instead of whinning to news media every freaking day or overwhelm our justice system with lawsuits (RIAA is beginning to top the chart on suing people.  Their actions make Microsoft look good!)  If they can’t stop people from downloading musics, why not look at what iTune is doing?  I am sure they can make plenty of money to buy more mansions, exotic cars, and so forth for themselves by selling tracks for a buck a piece.

Illegal Downloading Hurting Music Sales

What the RIAA doesn’t factor into those statistics is that they released approx. 10% fewer acts than the previous year.  The acts that are released are marketed almost exclusively toward the “teeny bopper” demographic.  Of these releases, maybe 1 or 2 songs has a hook that is listenable for a couple weeks and then you never want to hear it again.  (Personally, I never wanted to hear Britney, Christina, NSYNC, et. al. in the first place)

I can’t feel sorry for an industry that has progressively charged MORE money for CD’s even when manufacturing costs have plummetted.  Can you blame people for downloading songs for free?  Why should people have moral hang-ups about stealing music when most of the “role models” of popular music are too busy bragging about “busting a cap in your ass” to even include music in their “product”?

Sorry about the rant, but we struggling independent musicians are very bitter…

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

Beware that *SOME* iPod owners are turning their cool iPods into the coolest paperweights after installing this “update”.. Follow the thread on the Apple discussions board for the iPod usage entitled ”
Update has killed my 30 gig iPod”.. I along with numerous other people now have completely non-functional iPods..

Pre-order iTrip for new iPods

Are there any companies offering a docking unit for the car that will act both as a charger and an FM transmitter (for the new iPods)?

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

what they mean is not the ipod that came with the dock, the ipod that have the new dock Connection (3G ipods) so old 2g and 1g ipods cannot use this update, so if you have a new 3g 10gb ipod this update applies to you doesnt matter if you have the dock or not, the connection on the bottom of the new ipods is what they are calling the “Dock Connector” because its different from the firewire connection that the old ipods have…..

20GB iPod for $294.95

I ordered a 20GB 2nd Generation iPod last night from MacWarehouse. It was listed as $325.95, but once in cart went down to $294.95. With overnight shipping and no tax total = $309. Not a bad price. I just got the beast 15 minutes ago so I’m playing with it right now. So, the deal is still out there keep searching. Check MacPrices.com for other iPod deals.

Happy hunting,
Christo

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

From my readings of the French restrictions on noise, this appears to be broadcast frequences of the units to stop interference and not the output through the headphones as some are suggesting.  The volume levels on the European and US iPods (and yes I have head both) seem to be the same to me.
