ShareiTunes.com is launched

Their site allowed people to copy other people’s music. There is no copying going on here. But thanks for the concern.

I’d still be careful if I were you. IIRC, the college students that the RIAA sued didn’t actually write any sharing software either, just a search engine/indexer for the normal old windows network file sharing.

ShareiTunes.com is launched

Napster was about actually copying music, this is about playing music off of someone else’s computer.  Since stealing is not occuring this should be fine, and if its not, its really Apple’s issue not ours, all we did at shareitunes.com is put up a site where people can list their address to their iTunes hosted music collections, we didn’t actually write the software that allows the sharing Apple did.  Also if you actually buy digital downloads from apple, those songs are protected by Digital Rights Management and will not let you share them without a password.  Does that clarify it for you. You can’t burn music you are sharing from someone else’s share, you can’t load it on your ipod, you can only listen to it via iTunes while you are both connected.

problem with Napster is that you could download the music. this is just a stream, like listening to internet radio.

i would think legaly it would be the same as going over to a buddies house and listening to there CD collecton, no harm, no fowl, nobody making money off of it

This is a feature built into iTunes4? Isn’t sharing one’s music techinically ILLEGAL, and isn’t this what Napster got shut down for?

Somebody enlighten me, please :)

iPod 10GB for $199 at Target

Here in Minnesota, I called around to several places and the only location that had an iPod is selling them for not $199, not $249, but $279.  If you can find one for $199, consider yourself lucky ... I wouldn’t get too excited about this news.

MacDevCenter: Goodbye PDA, Hello iPod?

str - the same could easily be said about Microsoft DOS through XP, their CE devices, and all the MS apps. So your statement is true about both and lame about both. It could also be said about most car companies too.

Interesting conspiracy theory, genius.  Why do Apple-haters always pop up on Apple-related community sites?

iPod 20GB for PC for $279

Placed an order today at this price, I am also suspicious that the unit will never arrive. My order is currently displaying:

“Delayed Items - Currently one or more items are not available. Every effort is being made to complete your order.
Delayed 6/19/2003 - Sku:  A0066806 Quantity: 1 Description: 20 GB iPod MP3 Player For PC”

I hope I am able to get this, I MUCH prefer the gen1 and gen2 iPods over the gen3 iPod. For those of you in the same boat you may want to check out your local Target and Best Buy as they are also clearing out gen2 iPods at $199/10Gb and $299/20Gb.

Good Luck!

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Some people are happy with whatever life (and Apple) throw at them while others feel that they can have some influence on their destiny.  If people like “low-fi” are happy with the features that they have on their earlier generation iPod now, perhaps they will refrain from downloading any future firmware updates to conserve precious bandwidth for the rest of us.

KBase Docs: Touch-sensitve buttons and iPod software chart

And 1.3 still isn’t out for Windows iPods, although that chart doesn’t seem to mention it.

KBase Docs: Touch-sensitve buttons and iPod software chart

hmm. this whole software compatibility chart is a bit more official than Gayle’s post in the discussions, but it is also sort of ominous. I was optimistic, but I’m starting to wonder if 1.3 will indeed be the final software update for older pods. Still no whys, just cold hard facts. boo hiss.

iPod 20GB for PC for $279

They seem to be out of stock, and are reporting that this won’t ship until 6/18, which seems suspicious. On the other hand, they were reporting the same thing before they lowered the price from $450 to $350 so maybe they actually will get more. Anyone have any idea about this?

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

It’s not that I’m not satisfied with the iPod.  I plan to keep using it until it dies or something compels me to buy something else.  I’m just not satisfied with Apple.  Just as they’re well within their rights to do what they’re doing, I’m well within my rights to not like their attitude and factor that in the next time I’m shopping.  That’s really all there is to it.

MacDevCenter: Goodbye PDA, Hello iPod?

I, too, switched from a PocketPC (which I sold for $80 under what I should have so I could afford the iPod at the launch, thus getting the geeky tee shirt).  The only thing I really miss is the video support.  The huge capacity, and portability, and the _SUBTLTY_ of the iPod, make it a much better alternative.  It looks like an appliance, and not a device.  It has a few functions which it performs well, vs. a thousand functions poorly implemented.  If the pocketpc folks could spend the effort coming up with an input method as easy to use as the scroll wheel, they’d have a million seller.

iTunes Music Store Sells Over One Million Songs in First Week

Tell you what Apple is going to gain with all this activity. I have been using Windows PC’s for over a decade…never owned a Mac. in the last week I purchased an iPod and now Apple hardware has me hooked. I am considering purchasing an iBook or PowerBook so I can try out the “dark side” :)

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

yes, I am over it, I am SOOO over it…

But the more I research, the more it seems the features could be on my ipod if apple removed a version checking line of code and recompiled the firmware.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Get. Over. It. I am an “old” iPod user, and I am not at all disgruntled. The iPod STILL performs the same tasks and STILL plays music! It is not like they are taking features away.

Get over it. If you don’t like it, lump it. If you weren’t satisfied with the iPod in the first place, why the heck did you buy one? If you aren’t satisfied now because a new model came out, then stop letting the green eyed envy monster get a hold.

Because it’s being artificially tied to expensive hardware.

Apple doesn’t owe us the software.  But I can certainly be upset that they’re snubbing their old user base not because they have to, but because they want us to buy everything all over again as if we were new customers.
