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.

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).

Windows: MUSICMATCH Jukebox 8 Released

I Love MM I actually paid for lifetime upgrades. It was cheaper in the long run. Since I can’t get Itunes—I didn’t know about it before buying my ipod—I use this.
Winamp is too plain, Windows media player too restrictive, and Real is a JOKE.

TechTV: AAC Developer Interview

Yeah…  I’m not sure what that means Rob but I just realised it would be illegal to record it and put it on the web.

Apple DOES own ipod.com. Type it into your web browser and see.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

Uhm… peeps, if you look carefully at the photos posted by Matthew S. you can see that the iPod in these pics is actually the old iPod… I guess these pics are irrelevant to the topic in hand! We’re talkin bout the new iPod’s here… the one with the the promised high resolution! I guess thats all that matters in the end.

Actually, that was the point, and ought to have been pretty clear from the statement that it’s a 20GB model (the new ones don’t come in that size).  Everyone knows that the old ones are white backlit, but they look blue in plenty of conditions.  So therefore, assuming there’s a whole new, top secret model out there which fixes all the bugs just because the backlight looks blue is probably a little premature.

Also, I don’t think we were promised higher resolution screens.  In fact, the tech specs for the new iPods list the exact same resolution and dot pitch as the original ones do: 160x128, 0.24mm dot pitch.  I’m not entirely sure where this whole “high resolution screen” thing came from.

I know it’s not me saying it, so I’ll explain it to myself nice and slow like.  I can enter any name I like in the “name” box and post under it.

This invariably leads to some 12-year old using my name to call people “gay”.

“Could someone in the US record, encode and post this somewere on the web so us not in the US can see it too?”

Don’t make me come over there.

There’s nothing “wrong”, it’s just the system lets you post as anyone.  Which might seem wrong, but rest assured is merely part of My Grand Design.

Honestly though, let’s try to be a little more creative.  For My sake, who misspells their own name? “Mathew” vs. “Matthew”?
