Forums: Firewire Heat
iLounger, “colskee” writes in the forums about his iPod overheating.
“As I have a mac at home (which contains my iPod’s mp3s). I once used the iPod to play tracks via iTunes on my work machine (i.e play tracks while it charges over Firewire). I wouldn’t recommend doing this. The iPod got RED HOT and the LCD display darkened to almost black. I panicked for a while, but it cooled down and the LCD lightened up now. Still love the pod.”

iPod goes to the Grammys
USA Today has a report on this years 44th Grammy Award performers and presenters receiving, you guessed it, an iPod in their gift baskets… should look nice next to the aluminum bust.
Cases: The PodPac Unlimited available in colors
iPoding has a report on the new, clear vinyl PodPac Unlimited, available in four colors; Pink, Yellow, Green and Blue. John Corbin, PodPac creator, had the following to say about the PodPac and the reason behind color PodPacs.
“I like to give people options. We were able to integrate belt clips, Velcro, and then got requests for Podpacs without either, unlimited by the additions. It seems some folks like using the Podpac AND another case. They use the inexpensive Podpac Unlimited to protect the iPod from fingerprints and scratches and transport the Podpac-covered iPod in a cushioned shock-protective case from other manufacturers. The color Podpacs are an extension of these requests for an unlimited unit that can reflect the personality or mood of the iPod owner - plus they let you tell your iPod from your friends’ iPods in an instant.”
