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….)

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

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?!?

Incase Releases New Sleeve for iPod

Austin,

I called Incase about the Folio last year. I thought the chrome badge was cool, too. Unfortunately, as it turns out, it’s not a badge at all but a cutout—-so that’s actually the back of the Ipod showing through, all unprotected and ready for scratches.

Needless to say, I didn’t buy. But I did buy the sleeve (which I loved), and I’ll be buying the new sleeve for my new Ipod tonight.

VW Audio Interface Adapter

This seems to be a cool idea,but it seems that they don’t have the bugs worked out of it.  read the forums for postings of people who have problems using the device or using their radio after installing the device.

Still, hat’s off to them.  I’m waiting for the next revision before I get one for our Jetta. . .

Open Letter to Apple Concerning the Mistreatment of Apple Customers

Straight from the horse’s mouth:

About the iPod Software Updater application

You use the iPod Software Updater application to update or restore your iPod. You can download this application from Apple Software Downloads (http://www.apple.com/swupdates/). From time to time, Apple expects to release later versions of this application, which have later versions of iPod software. These later versions MAY INCLUDE NEW FUNCTIONS, or improvements to existing features.

They didn’t promise new features though they promise updates which could contain new functions, which means they should “expect” to give us the new updates.

Incase Releases New Sleeve for iPod

this has been out for at least a week now. I ordered it last Friday from the Apple online store. It was the same price as the Incase site, but saved a few bucks on shipping. I should get it by the end of this week.

Yeah i noticed this a while ago… I want the other case they offer. The trifold one is also cool, it has a little chrome badge that is real sexy :)

This is my least favorite design out of the 3

Speck Products Announces Several New iPod Cases

I have a 2nd Gen iPod and i had a blue iSkin and it sucked man. Too much dust and no screen protection. The I ordered the iSee off Apple.com and its awsome. Protection for the screen and you can see the iPod. Comes with a sturdy belt clip and headphone case. Fits 20gb perfect, 5gb and 10gb require you to put it rubber inserts. Its very easy. Best case for 1st and 2nd Gen iPods.

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

>>Why wouldn’t Europeans have the right to enjoy the same loudness as Americans do?

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

The somewhat longer answer: You choose to allow the EU to dictate every aspect of your life from basic individual rights to what kind of food you can buy, then you (not you specifically) criticise Americans (and others) that point out the inane bureacracy of the EU and the loss of freedom it will bring, and then you whine when a company ships a product that meets those very laws, complaining with the typical “why’s every American company always picking on us euros?!”.

Shut up already.

Blitzsafe working with Apple on iPod adapter for car

I don’t know of any specific brands but everythingipod.com has a FM transmitter on sale for about $28.  If you would rather not wait for delivery you can probably find one at your local RadioShack.  Although, I have to agree that you lose some sound quality by using this type of my device.  But, if you’re satisfied with it, then that’s all that matters.

I know, but I dont want to go through all that trouble, I want to get an FM Transmitter, so which is the best one besides the iTrip

The sound quality of the iTrip or any FM transmitter is orders of magnitude less than that of a direct input.

Also, Does anyone have any good reccomendations on FM transmitters? I dont want the Itrip because I would like to connect other things to the Transmitter. And you can’t connect the Itrip to anything but the ipod. And please under 50 dollars.

seems like that RCA input is for your CD changer. You can burn a 60 minute silence CD. And use it with that.

Also, I have to set it to “CD” and just pause the CD otherwise itll play on top of it.

"Old and New iPods, Side-by-Side" Review

Well, I suppose if I’m going to dish it out (by occasionally writing a negative review), I have to be able to take it (when I get a negative review of my review).  The post was meant to be my first impressions of the two models side-by-side.  The format of Sparkshop is very much a weblog style, which means I make frequent posts, and frequently revisit topics I have already posted about, so I’m pretty sure I’ll have more to say about my iPod as I log more hours with it both at home and on the road (I have already added more information in the comments section).  As with everything that gets posted on Sparkshop, take it for what it’s worth to you.  Sorry you did not find the post helpful.

Don’t bother with this device. Use an iTrip.
I do; it works fine!

nicholas,
Thanks for adding to my doubt about the effectiveness of the QC2’s. Glad it wasn’t just me :-)

Be careful, if it’s a pre out it might cook your ipod.  I would read the manual that came with the Pioneer.
