Gah, still no Ogg support. Shame.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

2.0.1 update for 3rd gen ipods only. 1.3 update for Mac OS users only with no o-t-f playlists anyway and Windows version available “soon”.

Why do they bother? Steve Jobs really /is/ having a laugh at the 2nd gen Winipod users.

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

But does the download have to be so huge?  29MB?  Geez.  I am sure that’s not all firmware.  Does someone have just the actual firmware file?

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

The On-the-Go playlist now works like it should! When you add a song while the playlist is playing it will go to that song an play it when it comes up in the play order, WITHOUT having to restart the entire playlist.

DJ’s rejoice.

Dumbs asses!  Pay all that money for a piece of crap product that can’t even do what it’s design to do…namely play Mp3s at a decent sound level.

You’re all brainwashed by Apple and get what you deserve.  IPod is a lemon!!!  Suckers!

Blitzsafe working with Apple on iPod adapter for car

pbox:

preouts are for connecting an external amplifier to your headunit.  Think of it as a line out.  Since the HU has an internal amp, the preout bypasses that so it sends the unaltered signal to your external amplifier.

What do they mean by “Clean Screen Protection”?  Is there some sort of film or plastic over the screen to keep it from being scratched?

Which do you think is the best case for the New Ipod?  The Belkin looks like a winner to me (clear one).

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

Hi Christopher,

Just a short answer for your question regarding the dB output of the Apple earbuds.

I don’t know what the official specs for the earbuds are, but let me put it this way…

No speaker/headphone driver ever made can boast a 100% efficiency rating.

I would say that the electrical efficiency of the Apple earbuds is probably 85% or quite near.  And that does not take in to account the obvious problem with the fact that the earbud’s driver is not directly connected to your eardrums!

So for argument’s sake, if the earbuds had an efficiency of 100%, then by the time you take things like, the way your ear is shaped, how far you push the earbuds in to your ear, the length of the ear canal, and the thickness of the skin that makes your ear, then you can expect the 100% to drop to about 85% - 90% of the sound that comes out of the driver, to actually hit your eardrum.

I would guess that the sound pressure level that actually hits your eardrum from an iPod outputting it’s maximum rated output (96dB) will be somewhere in the region of 80dB - 85dB Peak pressure level.

I use a set of Sony MDR-EX51SL earbuds, and they are not as efficient as the Apple’s, but sound a hell of a lot better!  So if the Apple’s are outputting 85dB, then the Sony’s are outputting arround 82dB maximum pressure level.  Not exactly high, is it!

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

From Todd Fiedler:

“The short answer: Because you are willing ceeding your rights to the EU”

If I may, this is exactly the contrary. There is no European law, which, because it is *European*, would be any stricter than any other national law.

‘Giving up’ to the EU is most of the time about harmonising the rules across a number of different countries. For some this means strickter rules than before, for others less. Sweeds would considered any EU environmental law as not strong enough (because they already have very drastic laws regarding this), but Italians would still struggle to cope with the strenghtened demand to be environmentally friendly.

The diversity of laws in Europe (not to be confused with European laws) is the reason why I, in Belgium, could not buy my iPod in the UK (where it is 100 euro cheaper).

To go back (or nearer) to the iPod issue, apparently the problem here comes from one country which has a rule, so instead of adapting to 15 or 20 different countries, Apple went for the strict rule. It could not afford that with the US because 1. anything dealing with ‘freedom’ is better left untouched, and 2. the market is so big, efforts are not waisted (obviously).

Trive, thank you for the details. I had heard of it, but did not make the connection. How unfair of Apple.

And, as is quite often the case, cars don’t have cassette players.

@Todd Fiedler

I’m not criticizing the Americans for picking on Europeans, I’m blaming Apple for generalizing Europe by thinking it’s the same as France. It is not only a shame for Apple, it will hurt there income as well.

And you should’ve left the ‘shut up’ part away. It made your comments barely worth reading.

VW Audio Interface Adapter

Cassette adapters albeit somewhat better than FM modulators are also of lower sound quality than direct inputs.

Besides coupling a direct input with a belkin auto dapter gives you audio input and POWER with one connector.

Cheers,

hey, I may be a little slow, but isn’t it easier & cheaper just to use a cassette adapter?

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

For Christopher:

New iPods (10/15/30 GB) have software version 2.0.

Version 2.0 is not avaible for download because Apple doesn’t want “old” ipod users to get (freely) the features included in version 2.0.

Apple wants old ipod users to buy new ipods for getting the enhancements.

You can restore your ipod to a version previous than 1.2.2 ONLY if you have a scroll-wheel ipod (5-10 Gb).
Remember that versions previous to 1.2.2 DON’t work with windows (unless you use third-part software just like ephpod or something….)

There is no such EU law!!!

As Apple states on its website (see firmware update 1.2.2) the volume cap was introduced due to a _French_ law (which might even be invalid thanks to EU legislation).

So why you’re bashing the EU?!?
