Apple Announces New iPods: 10, 15 and 30GB

I saw it on techtv today and i love how it looks and the new features. And when the back light is turned on the play,pause,menu buttons turn red. Its off the hook. And the 30gb can hold 7500 songs in it. What’s good about the docking port to me is that you can have either USB2.0 or Firewire 400 or 800. I have windows but i’ll like to have firewire800.

Creative Announces Three New Speaker Systems for iPod

umm….I wouldn;t exactly say that they are releasing the speakers for the iPod. I think they are releasing them for the Nomad Jukebox - but,  I am sure they WILL work with an iPod as well smile

iTunes Music Store Launched

The iTunes Music Store does not require a .Mac membership. If you have ever bought anything online at Apple.com, you most likely already have an Apple ID. If not, you just need to register for a free Apple ID to use with iTunes Music Store. In iTunes 4, click “Sign In” (upper right corner) then click “Create Account”. Follow the process.

iTunes Music Store Launched

I just download a new album by Mindi Abair.  I really like the store.  Worked flawlessly.  Great selection.  I’m liking the AAC format.  I’m listening to the album now on PB12 with Grado SR60s.  Sounds great.

OK, let me ask it here too.

What is up with the “Apple ID or .Mac” account requirement? Isn’t it that those actually cost money (like $100/yr)? Isn’t that a subscription fee? Did I miss something?

iRemote Concept for iPod

Might want to redesign your mock up ..... and griffin as well,, since “ironically” after 1.5 years of foolin aground delays delays… and finally getting this itrip together.. the very day there going to ship one to me,,, is the day apple changed the architecture and now we all have our butts stapled to the wall…:(....  when I get the itrip , I will be sending it back and moving on with apples new direction.  Apple ought to quit fleecing the customer base and get all of the important features into the ipod in the first place…right away….by the time I get the ipod I want ....  I will have bought 8 or 10 intermediate versions..

iRemote Concept for iPod

This is the best idea that I have ever seen!! It beats any inline remote and will make playing music with the iPod even more fun than it already is!!

Apple Music Service features

Nobody seems to mention the cost of the .Mac account (required for Apple Music Service). It is 100/yr. Am I missing something?

To tell the whole thruth they say “Apple ID or .Mac account required”. Is any of those free?

Nicely thought out - hope you get it off the ground.
Good luck.

This is a great idea! Not sure if it will happen though :(

Apple Music Service features

Converting MP3 to AAC is not useful really. To take full advantage of the AAC format you would have to reimport your music from your CD’s into iTunes (if your music was from a CD).

Yes, the rumor is that there will be an updated iTunes which support AAC and 1-click ordering. I’m not sure if they would provide a batch processor for MP3 > AAC, let’s hope so.

Does this news that AAC format is available mean that we will get a new iTunes and a software update for the iPod. We also need a batch updater for existing mp3’s

Uh, you might want to fix the MacMinute link. You have it set as href=“macminute.com” instead as href=“http://www.macminute.com”

Griffin ships iTrip FM Transmitter for iPod

Any “independent” review? How does it compare to iRock and the rest of the crap?

View or Subscribe to RSS News feeds on your iPod

It should probably be stated that kainjow is the author of Pod2Go, which has indeed been popular with iPod users. User feedback on Pod2Go can be found in this iPodlounge forum.

View or Subscribe to RSS News feeds on your iPod

iSync and iCal are the *extra* applications you have to install/use. 2 apps to use while you could use any 1 simple app like Pod2Go to get the news. Also, iSync is like 50x slower AND loading a PHP script to parse the RSS webpage is even slower! And iCal is a freakin’ slow app already so once you get like 5 calendars it gets mad slow.

Sorry that’s just how I feel. Feel free to do whatever you want but I’m telling you…it’s not the best way to go.

Apple's website debuts new store design

yes MAYHAPS they will indeed

Apple's website debuts new store design

They probably kept the 5gb model so they could have a starting price of $299 and not a sticker shock at $399

Forums: iPod Phone Survey by Apple

They asked about all aspects. Took about 10 minutes. They asked about software, hardware, ease of use, battery life, where I used it. Even asked how I accessed music i.e. playlist or browse etc. Asked several demographics questions - age, number in household, other electronic devices. I think it was a satisfaction survey.

New iPods with Docking Stations Coming Soon

I agree that the new dock will be a problem the iPod will need to be mounted without protection (unless some smart case manufacturer can find a way round this), leading to extra risks of scratching etc.
Of course, this wouldn’t be so bad if the iPod wasn’t so ludicrously prone to surface damage. I can think of no manufacturer other than Apple who would encase a portable unit in such a scratch-inviting finish. They did the same with their iBook and the things looked like junk after a few weeks in the real world. They have corrected that with the new iBooks (textured metal-finish that is much tougher) and I’d hoped that look/finish would work its way through to iPods. The iPod is a very useful device, but I cannot adequately express my frustration that industrial designers should create a highly mobile product that is so feather-delicate to even the most careful hand-held use. Even gentle wiping with the softest cloths causes fine scratches. The iPod materials are as delicate as a CDs playing surface! It astonishes me that consumers accept this feeble quality of materials in exchange for eye-catching-but-short-lived good looks at time of purchase.
Its actually quite preposterous that Apple have put showroom looks before any kind of ability to avoid cosmetic wear and tear. Two thumbs way down if the new iPods show no signs of improved durability.
