"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

Hey Mp3 is not a gapless format Mike ! Ok the click’s are bad, but you will never get a live album to play gapless!

Mac: AAChoo 1.2 Released

Also,  why would anyone pay $15 to do this, when you can just use iTunes for free?

Mac: PodWorks 2.8.3 released

You can, but the folder containing the music folder is hidden, preventing you from easily copying songs off your iPod.

Mac: AAChoo 1.2 Released

Is it actually wise to convert your mp3s to AAC?  Seems like you’re just asking for poor quality audio.

Update: iPod Software 1.3 vs. 2.0

I have a new 15gb ipod that I use with Windows.  Does anyone know how to make the alarm go off to music instead of the “beep”.  I can find no reference of it anywhere, and the Apple documentation is entirely too simplistic.

Toshiba posts information on new 15 and 30GB drives

It would be interesting to see someone update their old ipods with 30G drives and make it work.  I can’t see how it can’t be done if you get a hold of one of these drives.

CNET: Hackers: iTunes can be shared over Net

This sounds like what we used to do back in the day, when we could hear a song on the radio and record it to tape.  It wasn’t the greatest quality, but I can’t imagine a stream being better than the original too.

I don’t use the feature, but it’s nice that it’s there. This is part of the Rendesvouz magic, is it not?  It’s not hacking!!!

Mac: PodWorks 2.8.3 released

I thought that you could use the Ipod as a hard drive on Macs as well as PCs…

CNET: Hackers: iTunes can be shared over Net

What I don’t understand is all the hubub about “hacking” and “hidden” or “secret” features in iTunes.  While the SpyMac search function definitely takes things a few steps into this realm, let’s please not get too in awe of the people who merely stream iTunes libraries over the Internet.  Keep in mind that the iTunes “Advanced” menu has a “Connect to shared music…” option built right into it which allows anyone the full capability to stream another Mac’s music without the need for any “hacking” or poking around.  Apple clearly had no intention of “hiding” this feature.

All that most of these sites do is collect IP addresses and preface the URLs with a “daap:/”.  That’s not hacking.

iTrip Hacked

You had better hook me and the rest of the guys that ordered on for our original pods first buddy, i’m waiting and waiting here!!!!!

on another note, maybe only members posting replys was a good thing (see post 2)

CNET: Hackers: iTunes can be shared over Net

Unfortunately, even streaming requires a license from the copyright holder.  It makes no difference that the file is not actually saved on the recipient’s computer. Any “broadcast” of copyrighted music would be a copyright violation.

There seems to be a new similar site at  Can bookmark sites and search by location and connection speeds.

Audible: Free month trial and more for new iPod owners

Kudos to Apple for supporting I’ve been a happy Audible member for two+ years, and it was the support that finally got me to shell out the $$ for an iPod.

Apple: iPod (with Dock Connector) Manuals Posted

I found something interesting…One the manual it says to charge iPod, but says on the Mac you can just plug it into your computer because the computer charges it…but the Windows computers do that to…
Also I love how they don’t call it “the iPod” , but just “iPod”.

Windows: DeviceLink 1.0 for MoodLogic Released

I don’t know about limitations with the trial, but I used the devicelink to transfer all of my songs to the new iPOD, not just playlists.  It worked perfectly.

CNET: Hackers: iTunes can be shared over Net

Well, i remember to recall people streaming files and other people just converting that stream to a file on their disk. Depending on the ‘quality’ of you stream, i suppose you could be ‘downloading’ the file through the stream ...

Correct me if i am wrong too :)

Windows: DeviceLink 1.0 for MoodLogic Released

I have used the devicelink trial.  For one thing, it’s buggy as hell.  the other thing is it’s pretty bloody expensive (20 bucks) for something that simply loads playlists onto the ipod.  No option to add songs.  Money better spent on Xplay.

Windows: DeviceLink 1.0 for MoodLogic Released

I have used Moodlogic for about 6 months, and I find it very usefull.  It does have a few bugs.  I have about 1375 ripped CD songs, and Moodlogic has “activated” 98% of them.  I have a fairly broad variety of music, from Beethoven. to Hank Williams, to The White Stripes.  The “activation” percentage has gone up dramatically over the time I have subscribed, particularly in the past couple of months.  I recently bought the new iPOD and transferred all my music to it using Moodlogic’s Devicelink.

I believe that it only is sharing, not copying. So if you’re just sharing music (streaming it) then you’re fine. Correct me if I’m wrong though.

Windows: DeviceLink 1.0 for MoodLogic Released

Actually, I just finished trying it out, and I have to recant my previous statement.  The program does not look great at first glance.  It is heavily dependent on what seems to be a very invasive subscription service.

The “free trial” program will first find your music files, and then it spends about 3-5 minutes “activating” about 100 of your songs.  This activation process is crucial - only activated files are eligible for the program’s features.  You have to spend more money for “song credits” if you want more than the allotted number activated.

Before using any of the program’s touted features, including automatic file renaming and auto playlisting, you have to pay at least $29.99.  And then, you can only use their features on your “activated music” if you are connected to the internet.

Also, it seems that only certain songs are in their database (naturally), and presumably this database is what allows for automatic file tagging and other features to work.  Of the songs that were selected for activation in my trial version, more than half of them did not have automatic information available for them.

Although it looks as though the program’s advertised features might be nice, I am unwilling to spend the $30 to give it a real try.  Musicmatch’s SuperTagging feature, flawed though it is, will be my auto-tagger of choice for now.

If anyone does subscribe, please let us know your results.

The “More Info” link is broken.  Try for more info.  Program looks great at first glance!

MacDevCenter: Goodbye PDA, Hello iPod?

str—shut up.

there was no way apple could have released this unit 6 months ago.  hard drive technology hadn’t advanced far enough.  battery technology wasn’t slim enough.  touch panels weren’t cheap enough.  shit, the 1.8” hard drives in the new ipod weren’t even released into the commercial market until TODAY.  the ipod was two weeks ahead of the TOL.

sure, they could have made it bigger, or cheaper, but then it wouldn’t have been an _iPOD_…it’d have been a Zen, or an Archos, both companies had a 30 gig solution last year.  big, heavy, slow, ugly solutions with cheap buttons, short warranties, ineffective software and lousy customer support.

as for “in development” software…anybody who thinks software should be a one off, perfect up front deal, doesn’t understand how complicated and expensive software development is.  good software takes a minimum of ten years in design and testing…or the resolve to eliminate features to make the basics as rock solid as possible.  the iPod is software isn’t perfect yet, but is better than any of my rios, and way better than my pocketpc.

you’re right, i did get appled…I got tricked into paying top dollar for a quality piece of electronics that I’m quite satisfied with and proud of.  same thing’s happened with two laptops and an xserve.  I should be ashamed to keep paying for things I want, knowing full well that something better will come out later…but, strangely, i’m not.
