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.

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”.

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”?

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

Wow, the new iPod’s have a bluish/whitish tinted LED. Looking at my OLD iPod, under certian lights it looks blue also. Amazing.

It’s just a different perception of the color. It’s like how two CRT’s of the same model can look slightly different. Just the way they were manufactured. I can see how you could be angry if it had a cheezy green tint, but it doesn’t. It’s fine. Stop complaining.

Ok, sorry for the inconvenience that is going to be taking place in the near future, but the option that everyone can comment on news and things is coming off either tonight or tommorow, whenever I get the time to do it.

I believe that he is just trying to state that the Backilght can be different with different settings on cameras.

MATT - PLEASE ANSWER ONE QUESTION.
Does your iPod suffer from the bugs others have complained about?

Online Petition for Firmware Updates for Classic iPods

The problem here is they are ignoring previous owners in hope that it will make them buy the new version.  I was once a Mac-hater PC-user.  I have grown to realize Apple makes some quality products.  But when they bully their customers who paid a very premium price for their hardware AND software, it makes me rethink their quality as a company.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

I called Apple this afternoon and of course I wasn’t probably told the truth, but am just posting what I was told. First, I was asked if I had been reading rumor sites and I said I had saw a couple of posts about it on a message board that I read. I then asked him if they were supposed to blue screens. He said that he hadn’t seen any blue screened iPods. Before I hung up, I asked him about the clicks between songs and he said that they know about it and are working on it, along with some other problems and that a firmware update would be out soon, but he wouldn’t say how soon that would be.

AAC vs. MP3: Tested and Rated Part 2

The really interesting thing is, there’s an application called Aachoo (think there’s an article on this site) which appears to be using the QuickTime Pro “best” setting to encode AAC (I think I followed the link from this site). Isn’t that amazing? If it’s accessible (they claim you don’t need pro, which I believe), why didn’t Apple just add an option to use it in iTunes?
I like Gunnar’s article, especially the fact that he includes both the blind and non-blind results. I believe he really does hear big differences between the 128kbps iTunes standard encoding and the QT 128kbps “best” setting. There is a bit of a disparity between his initial evalaution of 128kbsp iTunes AAC and the results of the second test where he fairly well rubbishes it.
I’m almost tempted to buy Aachoo…

AAC vs. MP3: Tested and Rated Part 2

So the enhanced AAC encoding has to be done through a QT application other than iTunes?  I have QT Pro, but I only get two choices in iTunes—“High Quality (128 kbps)” and “Custom”.

Honestly, I think iTunes High Quality AAC sounds better than Good (160 kbps) iTunes MP3, so I’m not exactly getting the same anecdotal results that Gunnar is.

phil, you are mistaken about the Crystal Meth ipod, what you say about the LEDs shining from the left is actually wrong because the dark areas are caused by the shadow of the fingers of the holder of the ipod…

AAC vs. MP3: Tested and Rated Part 2

I was surprised byt that myself but there is indeed access to an enhanced AAC encoder through Quick Time Pro. It has a setting of “better” and “best”. Doesn’t seem a practical way of encoding a large collection of CDs though…
