Apple Store: Refurbished iPod accessories

Wooo, my post ^_^

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

I encode all my files at 192kbps and just re-encoded them at 192kbps with the ‘Apply active signal enahncement’ box checked. Choose the dfx preset you like first. I used the Metal/Hip Hop Big Bass preset. Try one track first. I loved the results.

Enhance your MP3s with DFX

I was just wondering… What settings you use in DFX and how you encode the mp3. I dled the plugin but how do you encode them.

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

Battery life reduction for a sleeker design is acceptable for me, but they shouldn’t reduce any further.  Belkin makes a few battery backpacks that increase battery life to 15-20 hours.  So there are alternatives for the not so short-sighted individuals.

I for one like the new design, but it makes it difficult for case designs.  I am hoping that Apple rethinks the 4 button design and go with an all-in-one design again on the next go around.

Not sure if everyone is aware of it, but Comp USA offers a technology warranty that allows you to recoop your entire purchase price toward a future product.  Pricing is based upon original purchase price and term of warranty.  I have upgraded twice with this warranty from 10Gb to 20Gb to 30Gb without spending anything more than the original purchase price and the cost of the warranty.  Since this is a one-time-use warranty, every time I have upgraded, I had to purchase a new warranty.  The last go around cost $59.95 for two-years.  Well worth it.  If rumors are correct about having a new iPod by early or mid 2004, I will be ready.

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

I think this is one of those cases where previous experience skews your judgement.  He seems to rate many things as ‘worse’ simply because they’re different, where an unbiased user trying both types for the first time might well consider the new iPod to be better.

I’ve just got my first iPod, and I know I did the right thing by choosing one of the new ones, whatever Mr Prager says.

As to battery life, well, longer is always better, but I doubt the difference is that significant to most people.  As long as it lasts between charges, that’s long enough.

Boston Globe: New iPod is not necessarily improved

I don’t care about the short battery life. Can you actually sit there and listen to an IPOd for 8 to 10 hours straight. I can’t! The reason for reduction in battery life is to make it more compact. I do have the new 30Gb and it does have its flaws but its tolerable enuff until the new update comes out. I dont use it for all those features it offers but only for music. I always bring my car charger and if I go on a trip I’ll take my World travel adapter kit. I am not worried about the battery and if it goes before warranty I’ll replace it. If a newer model comes out I’ll go buy it. So there!

no try the free version and re-encode one track and see if it makes a difference. i can hear all the parts in the music now. the free version is good enough to make a huge difference in the music.

"How to Upgrade iTunes Without Losing Sharing"

Ok I have both verisions of iTunes running on my tower but my laptop was up dated by accident by my wife.  The question is how can I put 4.0 back on my laptop so I can listen to my music at work again?

I Lost My iPod

I lost my PDA and iPod in Tysons Corner once. Walked away from a table where I was having lunch with a friend, only to have him follow me a moment later, sans my gadgets. Went back to the table, and everything was gone.

Luckily for me, it was an honest custodial worker that found it.

I Lost My iPod

my friend recently lost his at dulles airport at a security terminal (he set of the detector so when they wanded him he lost it) but i helped him contact the TSA and he was lucky enough to get it back.

what i do is i put my contact information into a vcard for the contacts folder, and keep my name as the title of the ipod so hopefully if i ever loose it someone will now how to return it

I Lost My iPod

Wow, that’s an amazing story.

My next paycheque is tomorrow, I’m hoping it’ll be big enough for the 15 Gig.

Rob, thanks for the StuffBack link. I actually looked into that a few months ago. I called them and it is a service available in Canada, I just didn’t order it.

I Lost My iPod

I can relate Kenneth. I lost my 20 GB iPod over a month ago. Almost same story as you, after a long day at work. My iPod was attached to my bag but it came loose in lugging it from my car to apartment and I didn’t notice it gone for hours. I had registered it, yet had neglected to put my name in the contacts list or put a label on it. Due to my neglect I had considered it gone forever. Fortunate for me it landed in the hands of a Mac user who was kind.  They went through my contacts and got my mobile phone number from one of them. To say I was shocked that someone in Los Angeles would return it is an understatement. (I even had to beg the person to take a reward). So don’t be suprized if your iPod makes it’s way back to you. Wait a few weeks. And yes, my iPod now has an ugly label on the back and my full contact info as well. I was lucky once.. but I won’t count on luck again.

I Lost My iPod

Hey guys, thanks again for the condolances. I’ve decided that the 15 Gig is the way to go. I may have enough this pay, or I might have to wait two weeks.

This time I’ll be sure to have it engraved and make sure it’s on my person when I get into a cab smile

I did register it, btw, and a friend made a good point today. My name is in my contacts list on the iPod. Hopefully someone will be honest enough to bring it back, but I accepted long ago that it is gone.

Now I get a dock, solitaire and I think I’ll buy one of those 20-hour battery packs! Woo hoo!

you must treat your Ipod like cash. as mp3 players are becoming more and more popular thanks to the Ipod. people arent as surprised of seeing one in public and would love to get thier grubby little hands on one for free. may i suggest a wrist strap that way even if you put it down its still attached. i found myself in the habit of putting it into my pocket whenever i need to pull out my wallet. just watch out with keys or change because your bound to scratch it up.

I Lost My iPod

Hi Kenneth! Man what a sad story. I feel your pain. It’s like losing your pet or companion. I always have my IPOD with me and never let anyone touch it but me. I know how hard it is to lose something so valuable that you’ve paid your hard earned money for. If I still had my IPOD 10gb I would sell it to you but, have sold it to buy the new 30gb. My condolenses.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

Well guys… the white or blue thing is not new… in all Apple’s ads you see powerbooks & iBooks with a blue-light apple logo in the back… mine is definitely white (yellowish even)... i had to open it up & put a blue paper to make it blue…
