Apple Store for Education promo features iPod

Oh, well that’s just wonderful.  I see this an hour after I open my shiny new iPod, dreaming of how great it will be when I do the same to my shiny new PowerBook.  Today just isn’t my day…

CNET: Microsoft, again: Apple's old nemesis

Microsoft is boasting they Apple was not the first to do it. Okay, let me say this. Apple was the first to do it right! When has Pressplay ever had 2 million downloads in 16 days? Huh? Apple doesn’t have to necessarily reinvent the wheel, just improve on it which they have done. Apple still rocks!

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

I just received my new 30GB iPod today from Dell.  I originally had one of the 30GB units that first came out but returned it because it was much cheaper at Dell.  The backlighting systems are very much different.  On the original 30GB, the backlight color was definitely white, and you couldn’t tell where the LED’s were behind the screen.  The screen was a little ‘sandy’ and hard to read.  The original screen was also very dim, but it was good enough to use in the dark.  On the new iPod I got from Dell today, the 30GB unit has a definite blue backlight, and is MUCH brighter than my original 30GB.  The contrast is also much higher, and to set at a normal level, I had to set it at about 25% or less on the scale bar.  Setting it in the middle will not let you see the screen.  Also, I can see three distinct LEDs on the left side of the screen which I couldn’t see before with the original 30GB.  The screen appears to be crisper than the original as well.

My original 30GB had a lot of ‘reset’ issues.  It was resetting quite often.  My old 20GB iPod never locked up on me.  Hopefully with this newer 30GB unit that I have, I hope that it won’t lock up on me like my previous unit.

Audible: Free month trial and more for new iPod owners

Yeah, I chatted with an Audible.com online support rep last week and they said they’re waiting for Apple to release the new firmware for Windows iPods. <sigh>

RealNetworks Launches New Music Service

what if i only want one song? $10.74 seems pretty steep… 10 songs fo 17.85? it costs less to buy an album at the high priced virgin megastore! then there is the added inconvienence of burning them to a cd before i can rip them to itunes. This service seems doomed to failure.

"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.

79 a song doesn’t sound so great when you also have to pay a $9.95/month subscription fee. I’ll stick with iTunes, thanks.

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

yeah i noticed that too, “iPod” vs “the iPod” or “your iPod”

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.
