VW Audio Interface Adapter

Is this passthrough cable made specifically for VW automobiles? Do you have a part number?

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

The volume cap is like 8 decibles from 104 and 96 if I remember correctly.  Goodness, that’s louder than a vacuum cleaner.  Anyone listening at louder than 90 decibels is risking hearing loss if listening at that loudness for extended periods of time.  If the complaint is that it isn’t loud enough and you are listening at louder than 90 decibels, fine, don’t complain to Apple when you need to buy a hearing aid, or furthermore, learn sign language.  To learn what decible levels are safe, visit:

Griffin iTrip FM Transmitter for iPod: $32.95

yourmom—before you flame someone how about doing a little more research first.

Had you done so you would realize that the iTrip gets ALL of it’s power via the headphone jack!!!!  There is NO Firewire connection.  This is obvious upon inspection and ALSO stated in the owner’s manual!!!

I speculated that the reason it may not work with the new iPod because of software differences.  You see, the software in the IPod signals the selected transmit frequency to the iTrip via the headphone jack (this is essentially a “song” of sorts that the iTrip listens for).  I don’t know if the new iPods would do this the same way.

Now let’s relax and listen to some nice music :)

VW Audio Interface Adapter

Current VW owners with the changer attached can buy from radio shack an inexpensive RCA passthrough cable with an
1/8” stereo plug at one end and the RCA passthrough at the other.  The iPod signal will mostly silence the CD’s playback, but you can still hear the CD at high volumes.
I just created a 60 minute silent audio CD for the iPod.
That said, way to go Ed.  Great idea.

Griffin iTrip FM Transmitter for iPod: $32.95

tom, you are very wrong about the itrip. 
first the itrip doesnt work with the new ipods because the new ipods dont have the firewire plug at the top.  apple has made a new port at the bottom.  also, your statement:

“There are two platic tabs that fit into the firewire hole, but these just keep the iTrip aligned with the iPod.”

lol, the reason it plugs into the firewire is because thats where it gets its power from.  it uses the ipods battery, they dont just do it to keep it aligned, lol.

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

Volume down is true only on touchpad-wheel ipods (2g ipods), the ones who have 1.2.2.

Apple told costumers about the volume-down only if you update from version version 1.2 to 1.2.2.

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

I have to say that I really have a strong disliking towards most of the long-term Apple “customers”.  They have an arrogence that is just breathtaking.  They give Apple a bad name, with their attitude of put up, or shut up.  And by being like that, help Apple get away with things that most companies can only dream of trying.

Why people get like that is beyond me.

My way of thinking is that when you pay your money, regardless of the manufacturer or retailler, and especially when the the item is only designed to do one thing, if it fails in that task, then the item is usless.  And should be fixed, or at worst, refunded.

I am a first time Apple buyer, and I don’t think I will ever trust them again.  And certainly, will not be buying anything else from them in the futre.

I for one, will be gob-smacked, if Apple actually fix most of the problems with the 3rd gen iPod, and there is quite a list of “bugs” that need addressing!

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

Hum, I’ve had my new 15Gb iPod for two days only, and did not know about this issue. Now I understand why, from the very first song I listened to, I had to put my volume near 95%.

I think I’ll try to get the earplugs mentioned above.

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

Okay, first up, my hearing is fine. I don’t have problems hearing any other source and my other portable equipment is fine at about 3/4 volume. Usually just under.

However, my docking iPod isn not fine. I can mostly manage with it at full volume but if there are any slightly quiet songs, I can’t hear them and I just can’t use the EQ function at all because if the volume is okay on the MP3, it becomes distorted when I use the EQ setting.

Here’s another good example. I put the iPod through my computer speakers. To get a decent volume out of them I have to put the iPod on full volume AND the PC speakers.

If I do the same with my CD Walkman, it’s deafening! My old solidstate MP3 player was fine volume wise.

All Apple need to do is have one extra setting in the Settings menu to have the volume cap on or off. It’s just a firmware upgrade not rocket science! As for costing more to test it, that’s just tough! They shouldn’t be selling the thing if it’s deficient.

POSSIBLE FIX FOR VOLUME TROUBLES

I live in the states and use a second generation ipod, but this may work.  I read that if you put all the settings of your mac to USA then it will fix itself, this means changing the timer, license and so and so forth.  It’s definitely worth a try.  right?

Bose Announces QuietComfort 2 headphones

With the disclaimer that I don’t use the Bose headphones, I have found that noise cancelling headphones make your neighbors conversation come in clearer than in a noisy environment.  Noise cancelling headphones can lower the volume of constant noise, such as airplane engines or trains clicking down the tracks, but they cannont reduce voices. 

For complete isolation, try some Etymotic earphones.

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

Shame on you for forwarding us to this crap review. Long on words, short on substance. He doesn’t mention battery life at—surprise, he has no really experience with the new machine yet—and the review is chock full of spelling mistakes and repeating phrases. Horrendous.

Apple posts KBase Doc for independent labels

Good news for musicians but bad news for record labels.  God, now you don’t even need a record label to get your music out there.  You contact the iTunes Music Store and they distribute it for you!  This is the RIAAs worst nightmare.  Their big fear with music swapping was they they will no longer be needed and here Apple goes and makes them obsolete pretty much overnight!

Griffin iTrip FM Transmitter for iPod: $32.95

Have you noticed that if you unplug the iTrip after you’ve turned the LED off, the LED turns back on when you plug in the iTrip again? It doesn’t retain the command the same way it retains the frequency.

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

I got a new 15 gig on a warranty replacement for a dead 10 gig (1st gen) last month. I liked the look of the old one better at first. But as more websites post side by side pictures, the more I like the look of the 3rd gens. The old design looks like a brick compared to the new design. And that is quite an accomplishment considering how beautiful and refreshing the old design was. It
