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.

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.

Audible: Free month trial and more for new iPod owners

Kudos to Apple for supporting Audible.com. I’ve been a happy Audible member for two+ years, and it was the Audible.com 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 smile

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.

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.  ####, 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.

Mac: iPod It 2.4.1 released

Great application, honestly, it syncs everything in Entourage. I even sold my Palm since 95% of the time I was just viewing information.  This way I can hear music and also read my information.  And carry one device!

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

I too hear the pop and a slight pause between songs and it is very annoying. When you play “concept” albums where songs are sequenced to overlap each other this is unacceptable. (Pink Floyd Dark Side, The Who Quadrophenia, etc) There is a noticeable and disconcerting pop and pause as the songs flow one into another. New 30G iPod, soon to be returned.

My old Rio500 makes a small “squeek” noise between tracks.

I’ve never had any probs with my 10gb iPod in that regard…

iTrip Hacked

We feel so exposed…

If you really want an iTrip for the new iPod just give us a few more weeks and we’ll ‘hook you up’. Till then, don’t even think about returning our beautiful iTrip all ripped up and mangled because you tried to do it yourself first wink

I have a 30gb iPOD and it also has clicks between tracks - this was the reason i visited this forum to see if anyone else had the same problem - Seems like it is a common thing in te new 30gb machines -THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED SOON. Apple -  get that firmware upgrade out right away….

iPod 20GB for PC for $279

just bought a 10GB gen 2 iPod for Windows off amazon for 249.99.  Not sure if they still have them in stock since the expected shipping is a week from now while the availability says it should ship within in a day.  Who knows if i’ll get it.
