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.

"iPod Envy: Dealing With The idea That You Can't Have It All"

I like the 2nd generation ipod way better than the 3rd generation. I want the version 2 firmaware and less weight but those are my only complaints. The old ipods look cooler have a better button arangement and cost $200 at best buy. Once again the new ipods are very ugly (who wants that)?

Audible: Free month trial and more for new iPod owners

No proper Windows iPod support for second- and first-gen models yet, though. “Early May.” We shall see.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

I recently bought a 2nd-hand 5GB scrollwheel iPod and noticed last night that it absolutely *does* “pop” between tracks. I was listening to classical music very softly and had not noticed this previously. It is definitely not intrusive. After careful review, I find that the “popping” sound varies each time, sounds a lot like a burst of static or electomagnetic “popping”, and is present between ripped CDs, mp3s, and AAC files.
  I also have an older iRock mp3 player that does not “pop” between tracks, so I know what I’m hearing. Not a big deal, in any case.

Hope for iPod Software 2.0 features on older iPods

I agree, for now. I don’t want to “screw Apple” (funny, your username is auto-censored in here), I want to get their attention. If they correct this, that would show good customer support. If enough time passes and they don’t, they’ll have proven bad customer support.

What I did was to send them my opinions as feedback and share that feedback as an open letter. If they improve things, I’ll give it the same attention. If they don’t, we shall see.

or you could just write Apple directly. doing what you suggest may dissuade someone from buying an iPod all-together which isn’t in their best interest, or Apple’s.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

My “old” 10GB iPod has no noticeable clicks BETWEEN tracks, at least not on a regular basis (the “charges” seem vaguely familiar, but maybe I’m just getting “superstitious” or paranoid about things now)—but I do clearly recall there being very loud “clicks” or even outright “pops” sometimes when the iPod has just been reset.

What I want to know is why the iPod “freezes” up every now and then!  I’ve had that happen again recently, and I’m getting “spooked out” here!  Also, I had the iPod clock not working on me once, not getting set no matter how hard I pressed the buttons (which worked fine otherwise)....

The iPod is a rather tempermental thing!  Oviously, it’s a gay thing…!  =D

MacDevCenter: Goodbye PDA, Hello iPod?

str—mindless apologists like you should be banned from typing their mindless diatribes…

back to the subject; Sabon’s comment (sorry, i think you’ll be waiting forever for someone to come up with a thumbboard, and it would be…well, inelegant). points to the fact that the ipod is almost there as a PDA, but it wasn’t designed as such, so it’s still just a music player with a couple of convenience features.

5 years life on the drive, eh?
Thus, using the iPod every single day for that 5 years costs you 27 cents (for the 30GB version).  Or $1.92 every week if you listen to it at least once a week.

Small Dog Offers iPod Trade-in Program

Have you looked at used iPod prices on eBay since the new models came out?  At the moment, you’d be lucky to pull $225 for a 20g, it seems.  Smalldog, OTOH, has the opportunity to sell them as a tested reliable apple merchant, so they can demand higher “used” prices than any joe schmoe on eBay.

yeah so they can turn around and sell on ebay for a profit….....i think not! save yourself the middle man and sell it yourself.

Audible: Free month trial and more for new iPod owners

This is brilliant! I just signed up for one free month of the Premium plan. I’m downloading Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales” as we speak! It makes me appreciate my iPod even more! grin

Best Buy stores: iPods from $199

As of today it looks like Best Buy has pulled the $199 deal on the 10GB models. However, Target is still selling its remaining stock at that price; I just snagged one there this afternoon.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

While some people are accepting of Apple’s decision, a lot of us feel differently.  A suggestion for those of you who feel ripped off and forgotten-Let Apple know that you want the new features for the “classic” iPods by writing a review of the iPods both old and new on Amazon.com and similar websites.  If you feel like I do, one could argue poor customer service in the review.  Maybe this will get Apple’s attention.

My 6mo old 20g iPOD with updated firmware clicks between tracks.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

This may not be directly relevant, but my Jornada PDA has exactly the same problem on its MP3 player: clicks between tracks.

It’s a very unpleasant noise and is the reason I decided to get an i-Pod for music in the first place (oh, apart from storage issues!).

It’s a real shame if the new i-Pod has a similar problem, I certainly won’t be upgrading soon.

Best Buy stores: iPods from $199

The Best Buy in our town was doing just that. They had 10G for $199 and 20G for $299. They had an open box 10G and I bought it for $149. Couldn’t be happier. It works great. I also bought the one for $199 for someone else.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

Well, despite what ipoding.com reports, my experience is different.

On my original model (scrollwheel) 10 GB Mac iPod, there are no clicks audible between tracks when listening with either Etymotic ER-4Ps or Grado SR-60s.

On my new 30 GB iPod, there are clicks audible between tracks using either the ER-4Ps or the SR-60s.

I used the exact same MP3 and AAC files to test both iPods.

The clicks on my new iPod are not a big deal to me.  They’re a minor annoyance, but not a problem that ruins my iPod for me or makes it any less enjoyable to use.

But, having said that, I’d still like to see this fixed with a firmware update! wink

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

My new 30gb ipod definitely clicks between tracks; it actually seems to occur at the start of a track (it happens when a playlist begins, but not when it ends).  It happens with either aac or mp3, it happens regardless of power status, with any speakers/headphones/earbuds, and it also happens when you press any button while music is playing (listen carefully, on a quiet track).  But it doesn’t happen on iTunes on my iMac.  So… it’s clearly a problem with the ipod (software? I hope?).  I really like this thing, but the clicks are starting to get to me…
