Give Apple iPod Feedback

Why can’t you people just accept the fact that a new model has new features?  Yes, it is too bad that you just bought yours a month ago.  I’m sorry.  Boo hoo.
If it had been any other consumer electronics product that came out a month after buying yours would you be crying to them about not being able to upgrade yours to current features?  Do you really think that Sony or JVC or Panasonic or anyone else would really care if you were upset that your DVD player you just bought couldn’t be upgraded?  I think not.
If everyone that had an earlier generation of iPod could upgrade theirs then there would be no reason to purchase a new one, other than the physical and size aspects.  Apple knows this.  Thats why there are new software features as well.
I have a 1st generation 10 gig and have no plans to upgrade anytime soon (mostly because of the lack of accessories for the new models).
Grow up, please.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Maybe we should “accidentally” select from the current models when posting the form too, since it’ll be less likely to be ignored.  They’re probably more interested in feedback on the new models than on the old ones.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

More power to you, Jamie.  I was toying with the idea myself, but don’t have the time.  Make sure you post an announcement to the site if you get anywhere.  It doesn’t have to be completed, you just have to start getting somewhere and then other people might join in.  TiVos have been hacked after all, but then again they’re linux-based which made it easier.

I’d be willing to pay up to $40 for the software upgrade.  After getting an iPod when my Nomad Jukebox broke, that was my #1 complaint.  But there’s no way in hell I’m buying another $400 iPod just to get it, and I’ve told them as much (but more politely.)

If you’ve sent them a message, send another one after a few days.  I doubt they’re keeping track and won’t even notice unless you submit multiple times in a row.

Wired: Music Biz Buzzing Over ITunes

Give it time. iTunes will be the only subscription based music store to see greater revenue and boast more songs than anyone. This is only the beginning. It is good to be a mac user! Thank You Steve Jobs for your creative ways!

Songdog, I have to say that if that guy is a salesman he needs to do some serious work on his english and spelling.  its nice to know that he thinks that apple shouldnt have to support stuff they ‘dont make no more’, and that ‘there’ only acting reasonable.  with sales people like that its no wonder apple is stuck with, what, 3% market share?

New iPods 'Live On Stage'

Great, I just wish we had Apple Stores over here in “Old Europe”.
Two things however:
- Seems I have a different idea of what “pouring into” means. The queue outside doesn’t look too impressive ;)-~
- As much as I love the iPod, it’s definitely not meant to be used for DJ’ing. It just looks pathetic and the guy also doesn’t look too comfortable dealing with the rather small interface. Well, still nothing beats vinyl + turntables for DJ’ing. Perfect concept, just as perfect as the iPod is for mobile listening.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

I had a little chat with my “friend” at the apple store.

I sent that chat to apple and I also posted it on my site so everyone can read it.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Yes, a commercial upgrade would be fair, and I’d pay a reasonable price for it ($15? $30?). The upgrade should definitely be available for free for really recent purchasers of second-generation iPods, though. There’s plenty of precedent for that.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

I haven’t seen this discussed anywhere yet. I would be willing to pay a reasonable price for the upgrade if I was getting a feature or two that I considered really useful. For instance, on the go playlists. Could apple make it happen if we were willing to pay?

Jamie:

If you need a hand getting the iPod 2.0 Installer (I “borrowed” it off the HD on one of the Apple Store Macs today), drop me an e-mail and I’ll hook you up. Too bad it doesn’t install on my 20GB…

I’ve said my piece at the feedback site, no anger involved. Maybe an online petition thing should be created, that seems to work for… nothing, nevermind, that’s a stupid idea.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

On http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipod.html

I put:
“You asked us want we wanted and we told you via this feedback form and now you are giving the features we suggested to new customers but not to us.  Thanks for asking.  This is terrible customer service.  I feel cheated.”

They asked us for ideas and we gave them ideas and now they are making us pay if we want them.  When I was suggesting software upgrades, I thought I was making suggestions for improving my iPod not just new iPods.  What a scam!!!

How to record with new iPods

No problem. The only bad thing about this is that after talking myself out of buying a new iPod I’m now going to have to head down to the Apple Store tonight!

How to record with new iPods

The recording tests they did were done in a special diagnostic mode…I would expect the 6 second limit to exist only for that mode. In “normal” recording mode (which apparently doesn’t exist yet) you should be limited only by the free space on the hard drive.

Recording feature discovered in new iPods

Recording feature discovered in new iPods

from the apple boards…which were copied from ipoding:

Hot off the presses from the people over at ipoding.com, this seals the deal i have to get one of these new ipods.
To record right now: (only 3rd gen ipods)


Plug in earphones
Activate Diagnostic Mode - Reset (hold MENU and PLAY) and hold down PREVIOUS, NEXT and CENTER buttons at Apple logo - Release buttons and you’ll hear a chirp and Diagnostic mode will appear
Use Next button to navigate to “J. RECORD”
Speak into Left earphone when “BEGIN…” appears
You’ll get about 6 sec. of record time and then “DONE”
Press center button for playback
Press Play/Pause to return to list of tests This is just the mono record feature… as noted here there is also a stereo line-in but that is in the dock connector and activated by “F. LIN REC”
