iPod Dissection Photos

Now I’m reading that the recording line-in will be part of the remote jack on the iPod itself? Is it true?

iLounge is iTrippin'

A good frequency that works reliably well for me is 91.3. I live in San Jose and commute to San Francisco.

This is a picture of the old 20 GB ipod compared to the old 5 GB ipod. This is not the new rev 3 ipod.

Hope for iPod Software 2.0 features on older iPods

I wonder if they have enough space on the EPROM for 2.0 firmware? If memory serves, the size is 2MB and there’s been afew updates. It’s got to be close to full.

iPod Dissection Photos

What I really want to see is a close-up of the dock to see if there is an RCA jack for a line-in for recording. Is it true?

How to record with new iPods

You mean there’s a line-in on the dock that will enable stereo mp3 encoding from an audio source in a future firmware/hardware upgrade? If so, this is the deal maker many of us have been waiting for. Now if they could only increase the battery life through a firmware upgrade too. I understand it’s really only 7 1/2 hours, which is pretty lame.

iTunes Sharing Status Service Debuts

I think it might be for sharing across the LAN but I could be mistaken.

Toast Converts Protected AAC to AIF

Yes, that’s what he meant by “without having to burn a CD first”... Kindof an ugly step to have to burn a physical disc is you’re just going to make MP3s after it later…  Or maybe it’s just one song.. etc…  Also, because of jitter and other types of things, it might actually be better quality to avoid the cd-burning/ripping step (probably unnoticable to most ears though).

PowerMax: Trade-in your old iPod and get a new iPod

iTunes Sharing Status Service Debuts

lol I hadn’t thought about that but your right if the new music store is all about buying music and not sharing then why does it have a share option? that would be pointless when they don’t let you share it

I think you are referring to the Toshiba 1.8” 15GB HDD photo? It says 500mA.

iTunes Sharing Status Service Debuts

Does sharing allow one to copy said music file to ones hard drive?  if so, the statement “Don’t steal music, share it”, seems a mute point!

How do the interal links work? I haven’t tried a 3rd gen iPod out yet… does the Notes function allow for hyperlinking, or am I missing something?

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

amen.

I would willingly pay up to $40 odd bucks for the upgrade if it would save me buying a whole new feeking iPod. these things are not cheap and I am not as loaded as apple would like me to be.

like I said previously, this goes deeper with me than just a bad marketing choice, I have already put my powerbook up for sale. I do not want to be a part of what the apple brand has become.

live on open source.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Well, like I said before, I wouldn’t mind paying for the upgrade, since it does add significant features and is not just some tweaks.  However, I feel they’re being unreasonable by asking us to buy an entirely new iPod just to get them.  iPods are expensive, and I shouldn’t have to buy another one just for features that are done in software only and can easily be done on existing iPods.

Toast Converts Protected AAC to AIF

In all fairness, so does burning a protected AAC file in iTunes…I burned a CD for my g/f as a test and she then ripped the CD into MP3 format with no problems.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Yes, indeed, you do get free OS updates with a laptop or PDA, with the *expectation* that you get some *new* features—but that of course is not analogous, to say, a music player. You’re right, my analogy was that—an analogy: something to use as an aid to understanding, a paradigm, an example—not an exact replica of the scenario.

Indeed, it would seem irritating if Apple took features and put it into a new model, and WHAT??! didn’t give those to me for free? How mean of them!  Adding user feedback to new products! Sheesh, I’d rather have them stifle innovation instead and charge more for non-plussing upgrades! OK, sorry about that… Truly, if anything, Apple only owes an explanation. Or even minor updates, if possible. But NOT the whole sh-bang, yes?

I’m just not irritated with this new development, nor was “upgradeable firmware” a major selling point—*it’s to listen to music, without button clutter*—that’s it for me; my current iPod seems to work just fine for listening to music. But hey, the new ones look even better. Sorry, Adam; no offense to 8-year-olds. A few of them are my best friends. wink

Again, sorry for being so overly-polemic. I guess I’m just one of the minority who’s NOT miffed, and find it whiny—or even a bit cheap—when everyone else is a little too ticked off. I should’ve kept my argument simple for you: What Rob said.

Extensive Photos of New iPod 15GB

I don’t see how it uses both file systems as nothing else out can do this, and if it reformatted the harddrive every time you connect to your computer you would loose all music on your ipod, now it may reformat everytime you sync but it wont every normal connect, and iPodlounger’s opion in the news article is like any other article you read in any magazine or newspaper, its only when you are being deilvered the exact news such as News programs on TV that you need the factual news given and nothing else.

PowerMax: Trade-in your old iPod and get a new iPod

well, if you have a original 5 gig iPOD, then it’s problay abused and that would be a good deal because i’m not sure will people on ebay buy a scratched up ipod.  Then again, people on ebay buys anything wink

The above news item has been corrected. Thanks for catching that.

I agree with jersey it is very misleading when they say you can trade in your old ipod for a new one, then later actually explains you are still spednign another 200 dollors.

Update: iPod Software 1.3 vs. 2.0

Also whats sad is that apple is trying to sell the new ipods as a new product…. Do you think that when they finished designing the new ipod, they looked at how much better and improved it was physically (practically not at all - the remote is still lame, same size, they moved the buttons and threw in a docking station), and decided they better make it look better by only giving the new software to the new model.. sad sad sad
