I Lost My iPod

I hear this.

We gave my son a 30Gig for college graduation and it fell out of his coat pocket at an AMC theatre in West Covina, CA. It was the last showing of the night so a cleaning person undoubtedly picked it up since he called that same night to the theatre and was told “no one has seen it”.  Like other’s suggest, the worker probably had no idea how to make the thing work but it looked cool.

It has a registered serial # but that won’t help deter a thief.  Of course, it is also missing the cradle, etc. so it doesn’t have as much value as out of the box but boy, do I wish there was a way for the thing to “phone home”.

iPod clone spotted, will Apple pursue?

I’m not sure who posts the news and how it’s decided it’s newsworthy but this is pathetic.  That picture looks nothing like an ipod.  Apple didn’t invent the use of cascading menus and white as a case color for an electronic device.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

I’m probably going to sell my 2G 10GB and get a 3G 15GB since Apple has the buy a laptop and an iPod and get $200 off deal for students.

I would expect Apple to update the older iPods’ software.  I mean, this isn’t a $30 CD player, it’s a $300-500 investment, and alot of money to most people.  While it’s grand that some people give such ardent support for Apple, I think it goes beyond comprehension.

I mean, what if it would’ve taken them a week to add in support for my G4/400 to Jaguar, but for some reason they didn’t do it?  Too bad, ts…buy a new Mac even though we could’ve made it work?  (Jaguar runs perfectly for me, btw, it was just the simplest example I could think of. :)  )

I’d love to have on the go playlists and song rating.  Hell, even Microsoft is supposedly about to give me the PocketPC 2003 update for free for my Toshiba e310.  What once was old is now new again.  This update would cost Apple practically nothing, they’re just suckering people into buying more iPods.  It’s called the “Sony strategy.” :p

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

Cougar, also the “status” given to you by your iPod can still be enjoyed if I have 2.0 on my classic. That doesn’t effect you one bit. I’m not sure who you said has resorted to name calling, but I haven’t to this point as it’s not pertinent to make a good argument and totally irrelevant to the matter at hand. I’m not sitting here whining about wanting something for free and I want people to understand that. Sure, I’d like it for free because I’ve already paid $500 four months ago, but I’d be willing to pay a small fee for an upgrade. And I was thinking about Apple giving us firmware 2.0 after the first gen 3 update but since us windows users still haven’t gotten 1.3 yet, I’m not quite so sure that’ll happen anymore. BTW, most of the truly rich people who buy cars like BMW, and Mercedes, and all of those things are usually modest people who don’t really care to be flashy. One of my friends was extremely rich, his dad bought him a mercedes when he was 15, and since then he’s a had a Jag or two and probably a Porsche, and through all that time I knew him, he’d never admit to having A LOT of money. Hell, he even worked at a KMart because I guess he just wanted to feel more normal, or not like he was mooching off his father. Anyways, you’ve paid a lot of money just as I did, if your iPod were replaced in 3 months would you be happy about it? And for anyone who says my iPod is not obsolete read the large caps below:

OBSOLETE DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT NO LONGER WORKS. THAT’S CALLED BROKEN. OBSOLETE MEANS THAT IT HAS BEEN EITHER REPLACED BY SOMETHING NEW, BETTER, OR HAS ALTOGETHER BEEN DISCONTINUED. MY IPOD WAS BOTH REPLACED BY SOMETHING NEW AND DISCONTINUED. IT IS OBSOLETE.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

Cougar maybe you should read closer to my posts. I said first of all for the millonth time, I never said I wanted a free update…I said I was willing to pay. Secondly, I also said I didn’t know which iPod you said, therefore I didn’t misread you post, I just didn’t bother to go and find it because I still have a better point than you do and your size iPod doesn’t detract from my point. iPods are hardware and nowhere does apple claim the features of the firmware as the features of the iPod. Have you ever noticed that? They talk about how many songs are on it and how easy it is to use and how long the battery lasts. All hardware issues. For the record, by saving $1400 a year for a few years you will have a sizeable downpayment fitting enough to make a BMW affordable. Furthermore, my friend with the BMW, and the people who truly like BMW, don’t just buy them for the “status,” they buy them for the performance.

iPod 10GB 2G at BestBuy $199

Houston Best Buy’s have them. Just call one up and ask them to do a store search, they will be able to point you to a store that has them in stock. I purchased 2 in the last 3 weeks. These stores I know do NOT have any:
willowbrook
59 south @ gessner

This might have one left:
greenspoint BB (45 north @ west rd)

I noticed on the store employee’s screen that one store in Houston had 5 of them left.

Zip your iPod, new case announced

Once I launch g3 I will redesign g2 and g1. The first iSkin design launched by www.iskin4ipod.com was removed from the market 3 months ago. The existing stock of 3000 is being prepared for a 50% sell off this month sometime.

wow.
it looks NOTHING like it. Whoever posted the article didnt do it with care. It is entirely different. Any new mp3 player that uses has same colour LCD scr. is considered a clone?

Get over it, the iPOD is not the only mp3 player avaiblable.

DJ Rents Customized iPods to Businesses

What good is his DJ-ing with the IPOD when there are gap sounds when music files are larger than the memory cache ?

Speck Products Announces Several New iPod Cases

Looking at the pictures, the cut-outs for the four buttons are rather small. In addition, the thickness of the plastic makes the buttoms very “deep” so if you have large or “meaty” fingers, it may be very hard to press the buttons.

Zip your iPod, new case announced

The new iPod iskin is 3.0mm thick as is our current iSkin, but that is where the similarity ends. For an update: on Wednesday the test of the mold worked excellent better than my expectations. The iSkin G3 mold is a very complicated mold because the new iSkin G3 is covered at the top and bottom, no openings to insert the center mold. Many mold makers said it was impossible. Molds for these type of cases are 3 part molds, top, bottom and center. These are easy to make when you have a large opening at the top of the case, like Groove Jacket, Aqua Jacket and the previous iSkins. The iSkin G3 mold is a 7 part mold and there is no opening for the mold at the top or bottom, so how was it done? How do you insert the iPod into the case? All answers will be coming soon. I did this on a gamble,  I felt if I did succeed, iSkin G3 would be the number 1 case on the market and no case of this type could come close to competing with iSkin G3 and iSkin G3 would set the new standard for what would be expected from a soft material case. My secrets will benefit the new iPod users, this will be the best case every. Loaded with 4 new features not available with any other cases of this type selling or offered for sale this month for the new iPod.

Feature #1 - top, bottom and both side are covered in the highest grade of soft Japanese silicone to offers maximum protection - feature 2 revealed in the next few days. Delivery of the case will be within the next few weeks. iSkin G3 will be packaged in a Maclear case which will you can us for additional protection when you are not using your iPod - this case will be free with the purchase of iSkin G3 from dealers supplied by www.iskin.biz

iPod clone spotted, will Apple pursue?

The mp3 player is actually made by Jens of Sweden. CNET spotted the player a number of months ago.

Other than an image, Jens no longer offers any info on the player on their web site. It was scheduled to begin shipping in May.

The suspense on the iskins is killing me!  Well, maybe not that bad but I really like my iskin keyboard protector so I’d imagine I’d like the ipod protector as well.  Kind of scares me when I see how much lint and other debris my fingers bring to the keyboard on a daily basis - and I wash my hands before using my computer!  I know the keyboard protectors are thinner than the ipod protectors but how much thicker are the ipod protectors?

this is absolutely not a clone. if it is, then the ipod is a clone of the creative nomad.

naviPod Wireless Remote for iPods Announced

Ok. Since iRemote is vaporware and might never come out, it’s not fair to compare naviPod to an unreal product.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

If you can find me a BMW for $1400 a year I will stop buying ipods.  You missed my point.  My point is that just because you can’t afford to upgrade doesn’t entitle you to free upgrades.  Zync, you should read closer before posting because I did buy the 30gig gen 3 ipod.  I bought the 5gig when it was the only ipod.  I bought the 10gig BEFORE the 20gig was available.  If you read a little closer you would have seen that i said the 10gig was gen1.  Zync, you said that I will be singing a different tune when Apple stops supporting my 30gig gen3 ipod.  You’re right, I will be singing the praises of my new 60gig gen 4 model, not complaining that Apple doesn’t support my 3rd gen.  Bob, my self esteem won’t be dented when Apple release the new firmware.  You may be different, but most people I know who own exclusive cars, like BMW, do so, at least in part, for status.  So excuse me for having paid for that and wanting to keep that “status” for a little while.  I’m really not the elitist that some of my posts sound like.  Just like I’m sure most of the people who want the free upgrade aren’t babies or any of the other names that have been thrown around.  I’m just trying to show people another way to look at this subject. I haven’t resorted to name calling because I feel my view has merit.  Just for the record, Apple will HAVE to release the new firmware the first time they do an update for the 3rd gen ipods.  1st and 2nd gen ipod owners will be able to download it off the Apple site for free just like the 3rd gen owners.

The iRemote looks smaller because it isn’t real. The guy doesn’t seem to know anything about the actual electronics required, so he has no limitations in his design - he says so himself.
