CNET: Hackers: iTunes can be shared over Net

Well, i remember to recall people streaming files and other people just converting that stream to a file on their disk. Depending on the ‘quality’ of you stream, i suppose you could be ‘downloading’ the file through the stream ...

Correct me if i am wrong too :)

Windows: DeviceLink 1.0 for MoodLogic Released

I have used the devicelink trial.  For one thing, it’s buggy as hell.  the other thing is it’s pretty bloody expensive (20 bucks) for something that simply loads playlists onto the ipod.  No option to add songs.  Money better spent on Xplay.

Windows: DeviceLink 1.0 for MoodLogic Released

I have used Moodlogic for about 6 months, and I find it very usefull.  It does have a few bugs.  I have about 1375 ripped CD songs, and Moodlogic has “activated” 98% of them.  I have a fairly broad variety of music, from Beethoven. to Hank Williams, to The White Stripes.  The “activation” percentage has gone up dramatically over the time I have subscribed, particularly in the past couple of months.  I recently bought the new iPOD and transferred all my music to it using Moodlogic’s Devicelink.

I believe that it only is sharing, not copying. So if you’re just sharing music (streaming it) then you’re fine. Correct me if I’m wrong though.

Windows: DeviceLink 1.0 for MoodLogic Released

Actually, I just finished trying it out, and I have to recant my previous statement.  The program does not look great at first glance.  It is heavily dependent on what seems to be a very invasive subscription service.

The “free trial” program will first find your music files, and then it spends about 3-5 minutes “activating” about 100 of your songs.  This activation process is crucial - only activated files are eligible for the program’s features.  You have to spend more money for “song credits” if you want more than the allotted number activated.

Before using any of the program’s touted features, including automatic file renaming and auto playlisting, you have to pay at least $29.99.  And then, you can only use their features on your “activated music” if you are connected to the internet.

Also, it seems that only certain songs are in their database (naturally), and presumably this database is what allows for automatic file tagging and other features to work.  Of the songs that were selected for activation in my trial version, more than half of them did not have automatic information available for them.

Although it looks as though the program’s advertised features might be nice, I am unwilling to spend the $30 to give it a real try.  Musicmatch’s SuperTagging feature, flawed though it is, will be my auto-tagger of choice for now.

If anyone does subscribe, please let us know your results.

The “More Info” link is broken.  Try for more info.  Program looks great at first glance!

MacDevCenter: Goodbye PDA, Hello iPod?

str—shut up.

there was no way apple could have released this unit 6 months ago.  hard drive technology hadn’t advanced far enough.  battery technology wasn’t slim enough.  touch panels weren’t cheap enough.  shit, the 1.8” hard drives in the new ipod weren’t even released into the commercial market until TODAY.  the ipod was two weeks ahead of the TOL.

sure, they could have made it bigger, or cheaper, but then it wouldn’t have been an _iPOD_…it’d have been a Zen, or an Archos, both companies had a 30 gig solution last year.  big, heavy, slow, ugly solutions with cheap buttons, short warranties, ineffective software and lousy customer support.

as for “in development” software…anybody who thinks software should be a one off, perfect up front deal, doesn’t understand how complicated and expensive software development is.  good software takes a minimum of ten years in design and testing…or the resolve to eliminate features to make the basics as rock solid as possible.  the iPod is software isn’t perfect yet, but is better than any of my rios, and way better than my pocketpc.

you’re right, i did get appled…I got tricked into paying top dollar for a quality piece of electronics that I’m quite satisfied with and proud of.  same thing’s happened with two laptops and an xserve.  I should be ashamed to keep paying for things I want, knowing full well that something better will come out later…but, strangely, i’m not.

Mac: iPod It 2.4.1 released

Great application, honestly, it syncs everything in Entourage. I even sold my Palm since 95% of the time I was just viewing information.  This way I can hear music and also read my information.  And carry one device!

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

I too hear the pop and a slight pause between songs and it is very annoying. When you play “concept” albums where songs are sequenced to overlap each other this is unacceptable. (Pink Floyd Dark Side, The Who Quadrophenia, etc) There is a noticeable and disconcerting pop and pause as the songs flow one into another. New 30G iPod, soon to be returned.

My old Rio500 makes a small “squeek” noise between tracks.

I’ve never had any probs with my 10gb iPod in that regard…

iTrip Hacked

We feel so exposed…

If you really want an iTrip for the new iPod just give us a few more weeks and we’ll ‘hook you up’. Till then, don’t even think about returning our beautiful iTrip all ripped up and mangled because you tried to do it yourself first ;)

I have a 30gb iPOD and it also has clicks between tracks - this was the reason i visited this forum to see if anyone else had the same problem - Seems like it is a common thing in te new 30gb machines -THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED SOON. Apple -  get that firmware upgrade out right away….

iPod 20GB for PC for $279

just bought a 10GB gen 2 iPod for Windows off amazon for 249.99.  Not sure if they still have them in stock since the expected shipping is a week from now while the availability says it should ship within in a day.  Who knows if i’ll get it.

"iPod Envy: Dealing With The idea That You Can't Have It All"

I like the 2nd generation ipod way better than the 3rd generation. I want the version 2 firmaware and less weight but those are my only complaints. The old ipods look cooler have a better button arangement and cost $200 at best buy. Once again the new ipods are very ugly (who wants that)?

Audible: Free month trial and more for new iPod owners

No proper Windows iPod support for second- and first-gen models yet, though. “Early May.” We shall see.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

I recently bought a 2nd-hand 5GB scrollwheel iPod and noticed last night that it absolutely *does* “pop” between tracks. I was listening to classical music very softly and had not noticed this previously. It is definitely not intrusive. After careful review, I find that the “popping” sound varies each time, sounds a lot like a burst of static or electomagnetic “popping”, and is present between ripped CDs, mp3s, and AAC files.
  I also have an older iRock mp3 player that does not “pop” between tracks, so I know what I’m hearing. Not a big deal, in any case.

Hope for iPod Software 2.0 features on older iPods

I agree, for now. I don’t want to “screw Apple” (funny, your username is auto-censored in here), I want to get their attention. If they correct this, that would show good customer support. If enough time passes and they don’t, they’ll have proven bad customer support.

What I did was to send them my opinions as feedback and share that feedback as an open letter. If they improve things, I’ll give it the same attention. If they don’t, we shall see.

or you could just write Apple directly. doing what you suggest may dissuade someone from buying an iPod all-together which isn’t in their best interest, or Apple’s.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

My “old” 10GB iPod has no noticeable clicks BETWEEN tracks, at least not on a regular basis (the “charges” seem vaguely familiar, but maybe I’m just getting “superstitious” or paranoid about things now)—but I do clearly recall there being very loud “clicks” or even outright “pops” sometimes when the iPod has just been reset.

What I want to know is why the iPod “freezes” up every now and then!  I’ve had that happen again recently, and I’m getting “spooked out” here!  Also, I had the iPod clock not working on me once, not getting set no matter how hard I pressed the buttons (which worked fine otherwise)....

The iPod is a rather tempermental thing!  Oviously, it’s a gay thing…!  =D

MacDevCenter: Goodbye PDA, Hello iPod?

str—mindless apologists like you should be banned from typing their mindless diatribes…

back to the subject; Sabon’s comment (sorry, i think you’ll be waiting forever for someone to come up with a thumbboard, and it would be…well, inelegant). points to the fact that the ipod is almost there as a PDA, but it wasn’t designed as such, so it’s still just a music player with a couple of convenience features.
