"A Penny Saved" comic features iPod

Do a search for ‘Charles’ on the Penny Arcade site to get all the Mac comics.

"The iPod As A Digital Wallet Gateway Drug"

Gimme gimme gimme!

I have been hoping that Apple realizes this for some time now. It seems they are on the right track.

It is also understandable though that they do not want to just add bells and whistles at random. The approach of making it surely but steadily better is a good one.

Your Mac Life had the product manager of the iPod on the show last week and he said that there are many very interesting 3rd pary applets in the making. He would not elaborate but said they were really cool.

It seems the iPod will get better and better in the near future.

"The iPod As A Digital Wallet Gateway Drug"

Man I was thinking this all alone.  Man Apple could do so much now that they offer both Firewire and USB 2.0 connectivity.  Since most if not all digital devices have either connection, it would be nice if we were able to record directly to the iPod’s hard drive.  People would get it just for this.  This could in turn get them to buy other Apple products.

20GB iPod for $294.95

Hi - the “More Info” link isn’t working quite right.  If you follow that link, it will tell you that the page is no longer available.  Just type “ACC5888” into the site search box and the deal will appear.  Good Luck!

iPADD: Text Input-On-The-Go for iPod

I can sort of understand where you’re coming from, and I also know that the iPod isn’t currently a PDA. With that said, I think it’s a great way to give yourself a reminder list of things you may need to take care of in an afternoon, or when you’re away from your computer (or PDA). Knowing that the list would be gone after syncing it means I wouldn’t put a note saying, “Don’t forget to call mom next tuesday, but maybe, “gas station,” or “Laundry.” On top of that, I could change the names of these individual letters, to say “Laundry,” then it’s not a difficult process, either.

For me, writing post-it notes is a surefire way for me to lose something. Shoving it in my pocket means the next stop is the garbage. I carry my iPod everywhere, and I don’t have to worry about it getting torn in my pocket, or having ink run, or just forgetting about it. I’ve only tried iPADD so far, but I think it’s great for simple little things. Not making a Holiday wish list to keep there for months and months.

iTunesStatus.com Resurrected

No doubt - we used it at work to share among all the Mac users. No stealing, no copying - just listening to a very diverse range of music.

As always, it’s a small group of jerks that ruins it for everyone.

iPADD: Text Input-On-The-Go for iPod

That still does not negate that fact that once you sync the stuff you so labourisly entered is GONE.

I’d rather scribble it on a post it note or type it into my Ti than know it will be LOST the next time I plug in.

I understand what the developer was trying to do but it does not change that if you EVER sync your iPod, this thing is useless.

Apple: iPod (with Dock Connector) Manuals Posted

Burton AMP Jacket and New iPod Solution

Apple changed the audio/remote connector because the old one was failure prone and somewhat difficult for many to use - you had to push relatively hard to properly seat the remote connector. This was meant to be an improvement for eveyone.

Seems like Apple’s customers feel so connected to Apple that they take anything that is not to their whim as a personal affront. Be glad that Dr.Bott has an adapter so that you don’t have to throw out your $500 Burton Amp jacket. Otherwise, you’d have to hack your own.

The world moves on. Deal with it.

Mac: VoodooPad 1.1 alpha 7 Released

The idea is that it allows you to have linked notes on your computer. Sounds pretty handy to me.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

Except that the blue is so much brighter than the white/gray backlight. 

And just a note: the displays with the blue light isn’t indiglo or like the deep dark blue color cell phones and other devices.  It’s just the LED color that’s a bright bluish/purple.  Under some lighting, it’s quite blue like the above picture, but under other lighting it’s a purple/white color.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

In my experience with buying the components (LED’s) to build LED flashlights, you order LEDs based on grade and luminosity. The quality of the LED is reflected in price. Often, larger LEDS’s (like the 5 watters) are darn near impossible to get in a perfect white, and cost an arm and a leg. I would imagine that the company (maybe not apple?) that assembled the displays (including backlight) used a variety of different grade LED’s during the manufacture process. This would explain why some are blue, some are blue-ish and some are white.

I’m no expert, but like I said, that has been my experience in the past. Since (I’m pretty sure?) blue absorbs the most light on the color spectrum, I would prefer to have a white one, myself.

iPADD: Text Input-On-The-Go for iPod

Hi Again,

Just for a little more clarification, the iPADD is designed to be customizable using as a playlist in iTunes, for easier use on your iPod. 

For example, let’s say you have two friends, Katie and Ryan, that you talk to regularly.  Enter their names into the “contact 1” “contact 2” area in iTunes. 

Then, if you need to remember to “call Katie at 4” and “email Ryan,” all you have to do is go to the iPADD playlist on your iPod, select the word “call,” then select “Katie” and then the number “4.” To remember to e-mail Ryan, you simply have to select “email” and then “Ryan.” The whole process takes only a few seconds and doesn’t use up too much space on your on-the-go playlist! 

Just for convenience I included the alphabet (A-Z plus some extra characters) and numbers 0-9, but the power of iPADD lies in your customization of it in iTunes.

-Dave

I’m glad that everyone is getting their’s replaced who is complaining about them. Apple keeps giving me the runaround saying that being the problem isn’t happening constantly, then they won’t replace, just look at it and send it back.

The reset problem is not ubiquitous with all 3rd Gen iPods.  That is the symptom I had and the grounds under which the Apple Store gave me a new iPod.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

yesterday i compared my 15GB’s screen to that of the 15GB of a friend. his has much more contrast, the letters where much darker (he ordered it right away and mine came 3 weeks later) but they’re both clear WHITE. I’m going to see if i can return mine..
but i ordered it online so i don’t know if i want to miss it a couple of weeks.

Under what grounds can you return these things? Presumably, a replacement iPod will have the same battery, clicking, channel-switching problems as the one you first bought.
