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.

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.

Infrared remote control receiver for iPod

I guess it’ll be under $50, sounds like a pretty sweet device. Unless of course the Super Dock rumours are true, in which case its kinda useless.

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

Hi there,

I’m the developer for the iPADD.  Just to clarify a little, the reason I created the iPADD was mainly out of the ability to write very, very short reminders to myself (or use the inlcluded words such as “appointment” “call” “e-mail” etc.), especially on long road trips or whatever.  I have a Treo 90, which I depend on a lot, and wanted to migrate to using my iPod only.  But this was difficult without the ability to add input of any kind.  The iPADD isn’t supposed to be a PDA replacement or anything, but something to tide people over until Apple (hopefully) includes a full text entry system into the iPod.  Additionally, you can make copies of the mp3 files or rename the current ones (using iTunes) for whatever purposes you need, which is why some of them are labeled “contact 1,” “contact 2,” etc. so that you can enter your friends and families’ names.

Entering it letter by letter….....hmmm…..as opposed to what. You have to write and do everything letter by letter. Dont diss the developers dumbass.

One of my biggest problems is that if they get it and they cant find the problem, they are just gonna send it back to me.

Totally new iPod with cellophane wrapping (until I opened it to do the backlight test).

I brought backk all of the original pieces from my 30GB and they did a wholesale swap.  When I got home I actually realised that I had left the little white port covers on my desk at home—how I have 4 of them in case I lose a few.

When you guys had your ipods replaced did they give you a new ipod in the retail box and everything?

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

I was able to get the new 30GB unit by taking it back to the Apple store where I had originally bought it.  I told the guy at the counter that AppleCare told me to swap it out for a new model and he did not say another word.  I was past my 10-day grace period for returns but was well within the 30-day limit that most other manufacturers put on “lemon” products.

If you did not get it from an Apple store, I would recommend badgering AppleCare with phone calls until you get what you want.  I cited the high volume of identical situations being reported by others on the iPod Usage forums at Apple.com.

Good luck.

Ok guys, I have a question for ya. How in the world are you getting Apple to replace your iPods? I have had to reset my iPod about 4 times in the past week, but Apple doesn’t want to repair it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t and I want to get me a different 15GB one. How can I get Apple to do something??

Oh yeah, I forgot it say it looks exactly like the ipod on the right in that picture under Apple Store and incandescent lighting.
