Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

What about his correct gripe about the 1.3 updater? Early May and June 12 are very far apart, and its still not available.

I think he raises some vaild points, but unfortunately, many apple/ipod users can’t “think differently” enough to even consider a criticism of mother apple.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

The new iPod is nice, but it’s really only an incremental improvement over the old iPod. I mean, whereas the old—first—iPod was revolutionary, the new version is pretty much evolutionary. So I think you’re griping for no good reason, IMHO.

And actually—the nice thing about the new iPod isn’t the software—it’s the size. It’s a sleek, sexy little beast. On-the-go playlists are nice, yes, but you’ll survive without them.

I’ve got a new and old iPod, and they’re both superb little gadgets. But the old one works fine. The new one is nice, but if you’re just using the iPod to listen to music, both the old and the new gadgets play your music just fine.

If Apple is gonna spend time on anything, I’d rather them fix the clicking between tracks and tweak the battery life. I mean, us *new* iPod users are missing some basic stuff that was in the *old* iPod.

If anyone should write an “open letter” and complain, it’s the folks who have purchased the 3G models. (And don’t even get me started on Windows and MusicMatch support ...)

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

I understand your feelings towards this situation and hope that some or all of the features come to the previous iPods in some way shape or form. I do think that you are being a little harsh, though in your use of the term obsolete. Webster’s dictionary defines obsolete as: no longer in use or no longer useful. Well I would hazard a guess that though many owners of the previous incarnations of the iPod, though may hope for and want the new features do not find their iPods “no longer useful” Do you? Webster have a second definition and if this was the use you intended it does fit a little more: of a kind or style no longer current. The previous iPods are not current, but in my opinion are far from truley obsolete. Current does not necessarily always mean 100% better than the old. So given the definition I would say your argument fails on that point, the previous iPods may not have the new features, but that does not make the obsolete, because they are still useful to the user.

I support the idea that the new iPod features come to the previous iPods in some way, but I do not personally support the tone that this letter or petition that has been set employs.

Purely my own thoughts and opinions. I respect you and everyone else for their own.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

You’re really being an a-hole. How dare they not keep improving your iPod after you’ve purchased it. Are there any major bugs that threaten the security of your data or the functionality of your iPod? No. THAT’S what those seven WinNT service packs were for, remember? What does you opinion of Mac OS X and how finished it was have to do with your iPod firmware? Your message is: Apple should give me free stuff because their four year old marketing campaign was “Think Different.” Bravo.

Why don’t you sell some of your graphic design talents and buy a new one like the rest of us did. you can probably get US $300 for your 20 GB on eBay.

Zip your iPod, new case announced

Great to hear, I have improved zip since our newsrelease so you will have the latest.  Developing is an ongoing thing here in my China office, I can’t leave things as they are, I want to find a way to make it better, it goes back to my designer, development of high end property in Canada. I have the case on my iPod everyday, I look at it this way, if I like it enough to use it and not want to be without it, it is time to release the product.

Get over it!!!! That is why the other ones are Gen 1 & 2 and why the new ones are Gen 3. Damn why won’t my B&W G3 have the same functionality and features as the new FW800 Power Macs… damn iDVD won’t work I think I am going to get a billboard to make Apple support me in my cause… NOT!!!!

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

Apple NEVER said they would keep the first two generations of iPods up to date with any new generation of iPods. Just like they never promised and never delivered the functionality of new Macs to the old Macs.

Hey Ford. Can you please make my 1965 Ford Galaxy functionally equivalent to the newest Mustang? Please? You’ve got to be kidding.

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

I agree. In addition, it’s entirely possible that the new firmware won’t work on the old ipods. Honestly, you want them to spend the money to deveop an upgrade of the old ipods for customers who won’t pay for it? That’s just dumb. The ipod does what you bought it for and more. It’s still just as good as it was 6 months ago.

Though, maybe you could get with all the .mac people and they’d contribute a dollar as well. After all, they wanted something for nothing, too. What a brilliant plan. Though I expect that everyone who wants the billboard is going to expect everyone else to pay for it for them. I mean, that’s what you’re expecting with this update, right?

Dell delays iPod shipping

I ordered on the 15th and kept getting my ship date delayed further and further.  SO I kept calling and calling them and then I got that email on the 6th about it being delayed til the 20th and to keep my order I had to call them or they would cancel it.  It shipped later that night and I got it on tuesday.  I’m so glad to be done with this fiasco.  They’re not filling orders in a rational manner…they can’t be when you read over at the apple boards that someone who ordered on the 19th got theirs on the 2nd while I had to wait until the 10th - I placed my order 4 days earlier!!!  I emailed complaints in everyday until it shipped…doubt that did anything except to help me vent since I kept getting the same form letter back no matter what language or tone I used - funny actually.

Dell delays iPod shipping

I also ordered mine from Dell when they were $404 and I just recieved mine last night.  It took so long to get here that I put off getting a firewire card until now…

Off to pick up the Maxtor 1394 cardnow.

Zip your iPod, new case announced

I am the manufacturer, you ask are we reliable? I suggest you enter iSkin into your web search engine and check out the news sites that have tested and reported their opinions about my product iSkin. Maclear “zip” is new but is built the same as iSkin, quality first. If you have looked up TPU you know there is no better material out there. TPU is 6 times more expensive than soft PVC.

Dell delays iPod shipping

” If you are a complainer, you should have ordered it before the big rush like I did, otherwise wait it out and buy some great headphones with the money you are saving.It’ll come eventually.”

What day did you order exactly?

Zip your iPod, new case announced

The material they use is TPU, there must be a misprint here? I read up on TPU and it is incredible, this should be an alright product if they put it together right. I am not familiar with the company Maclear. I went to thier website and see they also manufacture Iskin. Does anyone know about these people, are they reliable?

Dell delays iPod shipping

I ordered my 30gig days after it was announced, From Dell, and it came a week later.  I got it for $404 delivered.  They sell it at the best price around, received many more orders than they could possibly fill, but don’t make this out to be thier fault.  They can only get so many.  If you are a complainer, you should have ordered it before the big rush like I did, otherwise wait it out and buy some great headphones with the money you are saving.It’ll come eventually.

iPod Spotted: Homestar Runner flash animation

At the end of that clip, click on the radio.

There are usually easter-egg-type-things in those episodes if you either wait long enough or start clicking on things.

Dell delays iPod shipping

No issues for me. I bought it on may 19th. A 15Gigger Ipod. And I got it last Friday.

The price is 319.10. Therefore its a 80 dollars saving.

I dont know why but maybe because I always buy stuff from Dell. For example, I bought 4 Canon cameras from dell just last year. S330, S200, and 2 S230.

All is good. Cept I am still waiting for firewire card to get in. (12.99 shipped)

Samsung backs down from potential lawsuit by Apple, redesigns iPod clone

i would buy this before i would buy another ipod. i still feel like an idiot for shelling out for my 10gb in feb, only to have the price cut in half now… My forray into apple has been dissapointing with the lack of firmware updates as well.

You realize that CDs are 44.1 KHz right?

The picture doesn’t show the old design. The old design was all white like the ipod. I’m not sure about the details but it looked very similar. I think it might use the same hard drive too.
