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…

Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

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

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”

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.

A Humorous Review of iTunes 4

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.
