Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

I just saw this article and was really baffled…i know some white LED’s have a bluish tint to them. I turned on my backlight to my ipod in the dark and I saw it was white., but hen I thought….the Apple Employee was in full florescent light in the store…I then turned on my light and then looked at the backlight…sure enough…it was bluish (and this is in regular lightbulb situations)....I think the backlight tends to look bluer in florescent lighting situations….ie: when you by a shirt at a store the colors look brighter then when you take it home or see it out in the sun. I’m sure under the massive usage the ipods recieve at the stores…the backlight might fade…of course a new ipod will look brighter than an old one that been on display in the public’s hand. Although…it still could be up for debate…and as far as the picture goes…dont trust it unless you see it with yoru own eyes.  Everyone try out the backlight in the dark then in the light and see if it looks bluer under lit conditions or not.

I received a 30 gig last Friday in Tokyo (personalized). It is definitely the top blue backlite one. Where should I email a picture?

The top photo was submitted by a reader and the bottom photo was taken by me in my closet. No Photoshoping. I added captions to the above photos for clearification. I’d like more readers to email me their photos of a blue backlight iPod.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

what motive would someone have for photoshopping a pic? i hope people who have these very blue pods share more info. i’m curious if they are different in other ways. I know that MY new 15 GB is FAR more blue than the bottom picture (which isn’t blue at all), but not NEARLY as blue as the top picture. What’s with that? i admit that I am so anxious for my bugs to be resolved (i don’t consider the screen to be a bug, but if this pod looks more like the advertised pod maybe it acts more like it too) that I may be creating senerios in my head, but, whatever, let’s see what comes of this.

never once have i heard any official word on “higher resolution”

higher contrast, however, i have. so this is most definately what the apple guy was getting at.

who would go to ipods.com? apple owns ipod.com, which makes sense.

He might be right, but: isn’t it weird that a display model at the store have all that music on it? Also, I notice that the red light on the bottoms are dark red in the picture with the blue-ish screen, and pale orange in the picture with the white screen.

Finally, I don’t see any sign of “new high resolution” in the blue-ish picture. If the screen differs from the 160 by 128 resolution, it would be noticble, even in those pictures.

I think that there has been some Photoshoping going on here.

Color differences also occur in different film exposures and type that is used. The slight blue tint has always been there to some extent.

Apple KBase: iTunes 4 Tips & Tricks

Anyone know how to browse your library by Genre? When I click on the browse “eye”-con, only artists and album columns appear. I think I’ve seen someone browse their library with 3 columns, the third being genre. Just wondering how this is done.

Online Petition for Firmware Updates for Classic iPods

Quote: Actualy when I bought my ipod I was told there would be future updates and the firmware was sold as a feature.  I paid for an upgradable product. 

You were told there would be future updates perhaps.  But updates that necessarily added features?  I find that really hard to believe.  Did you go in and buy the unit,  not being really happy with it from the get go but hoping it would be satisfactory later? Here’s a clue:  NEVER buy something under that pretense.

So is this iPod with the blue LED also static-pop-between-songs free and does it not switch right/left frequencies when you press pause? If so, I’m going to return mine.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

Got the new 30GB and sure enough the click/pop/tick is there.
Here’s a solution, feel free to shoot me down.
In iTunes when encoding, join all the tracks. That should satisfy all you Floyd fans out there. I had to perform this with Outkast’s Stankonia with loads of tracks.
Think I’ll have a shot with the The Wall right now.

Online Petition for Firmware Updates for Classic iPods

Quote from my ipod manual…
“Apple periodically updates iPod software to improve performance or add features.”

Lets hope this is true.. since I’ve bought my ipod there has only been two updates and they did not add any new features.  Also the 1.3 software that was suposed to be availible early may is still not availible to windows users.

Online Petition for Firmware Updates for Classic iPods

Part of the advantage of upgradeable firmware is the ease with which a product can be upgraded with new features.  Many first and second generation iPod owners have submitted suggestions to Apple for new iPod features through Apple’s “feedback” page hoping that Apple would add these features in future firmware updates.  I’m sure that many took the time to do this with the understanding that Apple would make the new features available to ALL iPod owners.  It would be a real shame for Apple to turn its back on the very people who have helped to make the iPod such a great sales success!
