Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

What happened was that Apple had a whole bunch of 15 inch PowerBooks left over that they wanted to get rid of so they can start selling the Aluminum books. So they took out the displays and cut them in pieces to fit the iPods. One display was good for 16 iPods. Since the PowerBooks had color displays the iPod appear to be blue. There is no screen color calibration in iPod OS to fix that but after next firmware upgrade they will show the songs in color! Wahoo!

Dell iPod Deal Returns! 30GB $409 15GB $319

Well I checked my order for an ipod 30g at 409.10 and they canceled it. I am pissed! I will make sure never to by a Dell Go Toshiba if you need a PC.

Agustin:
Most of us are not whining or anything, just pointing out that there is speculation towards a new screen. (I can see your point though, how a few users are in fact whining).

"iPod Envy: Dealing With The idea That You Can't Have It All"

I Did. It has what, 2200 signatures so far? So about 1% of all iPod customers so far I believe have signed it. Pretty good for an online petition.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

I have an OLD iPod (the 5GB kind). Pretty soon I’m gonna be opening it up as shown at ipodhacks.com and adding some light blue film gel to the screen so that it really does have a blue screen. Only a pure white backlight (as I think mine has) would be able to work well with such a hack.

My observations:

- Under a 100W tungsten light, the screen appears blue-gray.
- Under 25W fluorescent lights, the screen appears pink-white (more pink when hot, white when cold).
- In direct sunlight, it appears pure, cold white (unless the sun is too bright, in which case it does that funny inverse-color thing).
- Under a 300W halogen lamp, it appears purple-blue, almost indigo (but less saturated, obviously).
- In pitch darkness, it appears pure white except at the edges, where it is almost reddish.

In addition, tilting it towards the righ or downwards increases the pink, while tilting it to the left or upwards increases the blue color.

There ya go. Just for comparison to the old iPod. See what your new one does in these conditions.

Come on people who cares what color the screen is.  You should be happy that you have an iPod.  There`s alot of people that would do anything to have an iPod and we`re crying over the color of the backlight.  Something is wrong with us, just enjoy the player and stop crying.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

I just saw the Oprah episode “Oprah’s Favorite Things Spring” (it’s still going on now, but I’m not watching it anymore). She gave away clothes, glasses, electronics… She also gave away 15GB iPods (obviously). The guy demonstrated how it works, the backlight was BLUE! BLUE BLUE! It looked exactly like the picture on the top of this page (the pic on the right). Definately the blue on the box. I am convinced that Apple is now making blue-screened iPods. I will get mine back from Apple care tomorow, if they give me a new one I will report on the backlight.

I don’t really like the blue backlighted ipods. However, on the other hand, if it does lead to a screen which one can view in much more comfort and less stuggle, then I don’t think it’s that bad.

I hate the red lights that you see behind the buttons. Where did red ever come to be near apple? I think that the buttons should have had a blue backlight and the screen with an amazingly good white backlight and LCD display

ok, this has to stop. You ^^^^^^^^^^^ are the impersinator, and so is the person that you are talking about. I find this very childish, and most of us want the feature that everyone can talk. So please stop abusing it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anyone is really disapointed with the resolution/contrast/tint of their iPod, please send it to me. Thanks.

Backlight, schmacklight.  I was just upset these new iPods weren’t black with red glowing buttons.  I would bend and bend for a black iPod.

iLounge is iTrippin'

I have been using my new iTrip for a week and I like it. It does not have the sound quality of a cassette adapter but, for the convenience it cannot be beat! No cables! There is occasional radio noise, but I am using it in my car. Cars and radios have built-in noise anyway. I give it a thumbs up.

For some reason, I doubt that Apple would be making two different batches of iPods.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

Seems like Apple is straightening out iPOD’s!!! Because i ordered mine 2 weeks ago on small dog and its been on back order since.  I guess apple isn’t restocking them because they are making a new batch of blue!!! And for any one with a completely blue iPOD, does it say Blue backlight for the specs on the side of the box ? Or this color just a wonder ful defect? Either way, i’ll prolly end up with BLUE BLUE BLUE!!! waiting pays off!!!

I’m just kidding guys it was me all along. BTW I think this is a conspiracy against the Apple customers. if they would just give us the blue backlights like we were PROMISED i would be happy to camp.

More and more interesting.  I’m positive that the “high resolution” is misspeak for “high contrast”.  Take a look at old Palm handhelds; my first one (Palm III) was barely visible compared to my Palm Vx, although the resolution and dot pitch were the same. 

I think I’m glad I’ve waited to purchase (‘cause I still don’t know if i need 15 or 30).
