Fox News: Will the Beatles Take

Jeez.  Apple tries to do something to stem the tide of illegal digital distribution of music and what happens?  The record companies start suing.  Again.  As far as I’m concerned, I’m not buying another damn album until they stop this stupid, childish behavior and start trying to find real solutions for distributing music.

And this Apple Corps lawsuit is completely petty and ridiculous.

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

No you don’t get those unless you turn on 3d Surround, and Ambience. I hate these two settings because they make this “echo” sound to it. I highly reccomend turning up the fidelity, I used the “80’s Music - Grunge” setting and turned off both the Surround and 3d Setting and it sounded fine. Sometimes I get fed up and just turn it off, because I can’t find the perfect balance. Also I plan on getting an iPod within the next month, I was wondering if the 15gb iPod is really worth the extra 100 dollars. Thanks all.

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

After you’ve installed DFX, go to ‘File’ on musicmatch and then go down to ‘Convert Files…’ The box to check is at the bottom left corner once you’ve selected ‘Convert Files’ and the menu opens. I didn’t change the files that I have on my computer. I only changed the files copied off my iPod. When I listen to the music on my iPod now I can hear things in the music that I couldn’t. You can hear each instrument clearer and if you listen to hiphop you’ll hear all the little details that you couldn’t hear before. Don’t put all the settings on full. Listen through your headphones or speakers on your computer and adjust the settings to what you like so you don’t add too much of any setting. Am I the only one who has had success without any clicks/noise in their files?

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

The cracks and pops happen to me too. Try turning off 3d surround and ambience. Also it seems to do it more in Winamp than in Musicmatch. Now to encode them. Where exactly was “said” button. In Musicmatch window, in the DFX window, or in some drag down tab?

No, I get them off EAC-encoded mp3s at 192 VBR. Should be very high quality.

I’ve never got the clicks but maybe you are encoding too low quality a file. Maybe try encoding a CD track at 320kbps and then encode it with DFX at between 192-320kbps and see if you get the same results.

I’ve never used anything but Musicmatch to encode files.

How do you re-encode your MP3’s with DFX using Windows Media Player 9?

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

Does anyone else get distortion and clicks at periods of more intense sound? I’m gussing it’s just my laptop’s crappy sound card. I’m going to try it out on one file when I get my iPod again and see if the same problems are coming up on my iPod.

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

I own a 10 gig 2nd gen pod and my buddy just got a 10 gig 3rd gen wanna guess who’s happier? hehehe he luvs the sleek thin design but battery is abysmall, lockups remind me my old zen :) it seems that now apples main competition for the 3rd gen pods is the 2nd gen pods hahaha.  it seems that there is also room for a another mac vs pc thing here too….god I luv these :-D well here’s my 2 cents…get a clue even adobe is’t blind any more and has stated that PCs kicks mac but in speed and overall performance.  It still funny when steve heads hold up photoshop benchmarks to P4 computers, what are they afraid to post some athlon benchmarks as well?  Stop cracking on MS because of who runs because apple is guilty os the same practices only difference MS did it better (by the way I’m using Mozilla 1.4 FYI) search the web of apple related by out of various technologies over the past year.  End this now these 2 companies are here to make money and thats all if u drop ur beloved pod steve ain’t gonna be and angel and give u on out of the kindness of his heart as much as ill gates would.  Lets leave the threads to ipod related matters and not MS vs PC bashing.

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

The battery life is an issue; I switched to an Ipod from a creative jukebox.  My jukebox had two batteries and I could go for so long between charges that I didn’t have to worry about it.  Now I have to carry wires, and adaptors with me to make sure that I can charge when I need to.  I’ve requested that Targus make an Ipod end for their plane/car adaptor.  This will help for long flights.

I like the Ipod but the lack of quality software for windows makes me wonder if I should have stayed true to creative.  I hate not being able to delete songs from my machine on the fly as my plan was to load all of my cds and delete bad songs as I found necessary making room for new cds.  I wanted to use the star rating system to tag the songs for home deletion, however the windows software doesn’t use the ratings.

Better form, worse function.

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

I love my 30G. It’s a gateway drug - I’m now buying tracks from the Apple Music Store, better headphones, thinking about cases and hardwiring an aux input for my car radio. I have about 16G of music on mine and of course it’s impossible to listen to all of it. That isn’t the point. I can listen to what I want, when I want, where I want. The battery life is fine for me.

Update: iPod Software 1.3 vs. 2.0

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

Uh, could we please not turn this into an Apple vs Microsoft forum?  There are plenty of other places on the internet to debate those kinds of issues. :)

Anyways, I agree with the first post—the battery life is more than sufficient for me.  I’m sure in the coming years battery life is one issue that will be improved dramatically once several other factors stabilize.

The one point I do agree with from that article though is that I do have to reset my ipod a couple of times a day.  This is starting to worry me as my old ipod never did this.

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

Well… I have a new ipod.  It works great.  The batter life is not a probelm for me - as I bring it home to charge it after work.  But I guess some of us could work 10 hour days.  As for… too much storage - that is a stupid argument.  I do agree that changing the already luaded ergonomics might be difficult for some but it was perhaps to improve reliability?  Not sure about that but the specialized connector was designe for the dock and maybe - a microphone setup for recording which we have not yet seen.  So I think we need to give Apple some time to show us why they made these changes.  I don;t know if change is good- but change always brings some criticism….  Still the look is cleaner and now has no crevices where dirt could penetrate the machine.  The extra storage is a godsend.  And the lighter weight is cool too.  And lest we forget one reason why the battery life is less is because this IPOD lights up.

They don’t make upgradable computers, and everytime I needed an upgrade, I had to take it in to a professional or BUY A NEW COMPUTER


That’s funny :-) It’s not true but I still laugh at you.

Why does anyone hate Apple?

With Windoze I suppose you just upgrade it yourself and everything’s fine. What a joke!

______

One thing I’ve always wanted to know: people that defend M$ and B. Gates what do they say? I mean what are the defences?

_____


G4’s aren’t slow clock for clock but their clock rates are defferent to Athlons and P4s. My dual-gig G4 will trounce any p4 2.5Ghz so I’ve no real problem. When the PPC970 appears all the windoze chips will be lame and then what will you say?

Anyone that like M$ now will (as before) eventually become to hate them. Everyone is just on their own learning curve. (and it’s a slow one!).

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

I don’t care anyway. I’m not about to join some religion of Mac users when it just doesn’t make sense for me to use Apple. All of my friends use Windows, and to me, Windows is superior. I know that Macs might be “easy to use” because I grew up with a Mac. When I turned 3, my grandma bought me an Apple IIgs. I went through 5 or 6 macs, and decided that they weren’t worth defending. I switched to Windows, and now, I can play the latest games on a 2.8 gHz Pentium 4 with a Nvidia Geforce 4 graphics card, 5.1 channel surround sound, 21 inch display, and a price tag under 1600 bucks. Sure, Windows seems a little tough to use at first. Sure, Windows isn’t as “fun” to use. But when I want superior performance, modular equipment, and compatibility with my friends’ hardware, I buy Microsoft.

Bill Gates doesn’t even know how to spend his money anymore, he just gives it away.

If 95% of the world used Mac, I’m sure that Steve Jobs would be just as greedy and you all would be whining about him having a monopoly. The simple truth: IT DOESN’T MATTER.

p.s. G4s ARE SLOW

Get your STUFFBAK when you lose it

Some facts:

The Washington D.C. Metro collected 25,700 items on its Metrorail system, 2,200 items in city taxicabs, and 8,200 items on Metrobuses in 2000. - The Washington Post, Jan. 2001

74 cell phones and 96 laptops were recovered at Denver International Airport’s security checkpoints over two weeks alone from 1/28/02 to 2/11/02 - USA Today, Feb., 2002

2,900 laptops, 1,300 PDAs and 62,000 cell phones were left in London taxicabs in the first 6 months of 2001 - PointSec, Aug, 2001

Only about 5% of these items are ever returned to their owners due to lack of identification and a convenient return process. The strength of StuffBak’s service is its simplicity.
