Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

I thought Apple was a high quality customer-focused company; however, after having all 4 of my “normal” software request postings deleted in the last couple of days, I have started to change my mind.  Most of us are just requesting one “on the go” playlist and/or any new software options that our “old” iPods could support.  As of right now, my iPod may be the first and last thing that I ever buy from Apple.  I was just starting to get into Apple and was even considering buying one of their computers.  Apple needs to address this issue to regain the confidence of many its customers.  This situation seems unusually similar to their “Jaguar OS” scandal where people who had purchased pre-Jaguar computers just before Jaguar came out had to buy an expensive Jaguar upgrade (if they wanted it). 

I am looking forward to the release of the Philips HDD100.  Cnet calls it a potential iPod killer and I have always had excellent experience with Philips products, so I may get one if the reviews are good.  You can see more about it on cnet.com or at http://www.audio.philips.com/betatest_HDD100.asp

DvForge Announces Spring Sale Event

So you have to pay $40 more to get one of the ‘numbered versions’?  Give me a break!  They look identical - DVForge used the same image!

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

Tons of my postings got deleted from their forums.  It’s pathetic.  I bought a $500 music player from them and they delete my feedback.  !@$#!@$*, Apple.

Give Apple iPod Feedback

Having purchased the 20Gb iPod in the last two months I am extremely disappointed in Apple not providing v 2.0 for the 1st and 2nd generation iPods.  My assumption is that this is purely an economic decision.  However the high price of iPods does not justify a purchase of a new model at the same or higher price solely for software updates.  As such, I hope Apple decides to serve those customers who have been loyal to the company and championed its success through their purchase of the intial iPods when cynics disregarded the model due to its sticker price.

Recording feature discovered in new iPods

If you follow their comments, I believe they just learned that one of the ports at the top (where the remote can be plugged in), is where a mic works…at least that’s what it sounds like following the posted comments below the story

Extensive Photos of New iPod 15GB

If the new iPods are the same for Mac and Windows, what filesystem does it use?  Just wondering.  Thanks!

Extensive Photos of New iPod 15GB

As far as size is concerned, notice that the photos compare a 15GB 3G against a 20GB 2G. The 20GB is 4.0” x 2.4” x 0.8”. The 15GB is 4.1” x 2.4” x 0.62”, or roughly 25% thinner. The 30GB, on the other hand, is 4.1” x 2.4” x .73”, or roughly 9% thinner. This means it is actually thicker than the 10GB 2G iPod (.72” thick)! So 20GB owners who want to take advantage of the thinner size as shown in these photos will need to drop 5GB in capacity.

Yeh. Or you could just search for ‘R Kelly’.

I plan on getting 2.0 to work in my old iPod… and releasing it to everyone. DMCA be damned.

iLounge is iTrippin'

I do indeed own an Itrip, and will say that this is a great product. Its a little tricky finding a strong station not close to other station in the Bay Area but i did manage to find a couple. No drifting of the stations over time either. I traveled just yesterday through three counties and it didnt skip a beat. The only bad part of this product i believe is the fact that you need to have Musicmatch Jukebox installed to install the playlist for the stations. Really all you have to do is copy and paste your own playlist from the cd and have it recognized by whatever your using ie. Ephpod or Xplay. Well worth the 35 dollars.

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

So what the hell are we gonna do about it then?  I am extremely pd off about this situation.  I saw the new firmawre update and it appeaered that it was gonna give uws all the features we have been requesting for an age…as an ex Jukebox user the on the go playlist has been long oversdue in my opinion - but apple go and stab us in the back in the name of copmmercialism.  Is that how you maintain a loyal customer base?  Problem is I cant see how we can beat them on this - esp if they are silencing complaints.  Anyone fancy having a go at hacking the firmware to work on the ‘old’ pods?

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

It is hard to come to terms with the fact that I am an “old ipod” owner, considering I have had mine for a month. I have given
Apple my feedback and do hope they update the software for us “older” ones. As a PC user who decided to pay Apple’s outragious prices for my ipod, I am dissapointed. I am shocked by the way Apple treats their customers. Maybe that is why I switched from Apple in the first place, at least the compitation forces the companies to show their customers some respect, I wish Jobs would do the same.

A Humorous Review of iTunes 4

Actually, browsing by artist DOES win over browsing by genre SOMETIMES. When you say “Oooooh, I want R Kelly…........Is he Rap or RnB…...........dont know…........so I can’t find him :(” But with browse by artist you can zoom right into the R’s and find him, R Kelly.

Actually, if you can remeber back in school, they taught you that there are different types of news stories and headlines. Factual, features, announcements, and opinion/personal reflection.

Actually regtools, I am proud to say that I was one of the strong ones - that is to say, I held off until the new iPods came out! I didn’t get a new one! And I agree with iPodlounger’s opinion about the new iPod, it just doesn’t seem right to put opinion in a news headline…Should only be hard facts. Whatever.

A Humorous Review of iTunes 4

“You browse the iTunes Music Store by genre by default. Who wants to browse by genre over artist? “

Golly, I don’t know.  When I walk into a record store, I head to the ‘rock’ section, then I follow alphabetically.  Unless I’m looking for jazz, or country, or anything else.  Then I head to those sections first.

Sometimes I like to express my opinion. In this case, I don’t see anything wrong with it. I’m not a moderator, I own and publish iPodlounge. ;)

“The new iPods are more elegant and refined than the old iPods.”

Interesting how iPodlounger, a moderator, put in his opinion in the news headline.
