I am sorry but the iPod and all its software are utterly useless. Please give me your opinions to my email address .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Thanks in advance

I'm a new iPoder, but I have used the previous generations as well, and I have to disagree about the bashing of touch sensitive controls. I love'em! I rarely if ever press the wrong button in the dark, though I've never tried to control it within my pockets as it's usually in my jeans.

I dunno, I love my iPod smile

Oh, and I opted for the 10gb iPod, simply because I didn't have enough money to go up to the 20gb, and I wouldn't of had the money for quite some time... Oh well, the only thing I miss is the dock, considering that I'd hate haveing that wired remote around.

hi, I am new-i just got a 20GB 3G ipod and it rocks!!!! I am 13 and I love apple and the iPod

I ordered the iSkin exo2 but do any of you kno any other good cases that WONT scratch the ipod w/ tiny marks?

Even tho the 3G is touch sensitive and a lot of you have frowned on this, I think its better than the older models. Tru, it is harder to control the actual ipod blind, but the remote takes care of this. Its buttons arent touch sensitive and are raised, so you can change songs and whatnot with your fingers and no eyes

I am getting a 15GB ipod in a couple of days and this reviewer says he got a case, control, even a docking stand with it. It seems he got in the origanel packaging. So I'm wondering does this come standard on all 15GB iPods or did he order it seperitly?

If he did order all this stuff seperetly he should have to told us.

Very happy with my iPod. Not yet messed around with it under linux, but it seems loads of problems people reported in May have been fixed now straight out of the box. Mine came with iTunes on CD, and it worked fine. Unfortunatley I had no firewire card so had to buy the firewire/usb plug (great for downloading and charging at the same time, crap when I realised I only had usb 1.1) Then I went and bought a firewire card. Completely worth it.

Also bought a hard rubber case, and some better headphones, although maybe shouldn;t have bought the apple in-ear jobbies... but anyway, I'm very pleased. Installing on xp was straighforward.

I have just purchased the new 15GB ipod and would have to say, not to happy about the battery life. It is going back to the store. The constant having to charge thing is very disturbing. And, when you use the alarm on the ipod, it does make an audible tone that you can hear without speakers attacked to it. Really kind of useful, just make sure it's hooked up to the charger,,,AR AR.

i dont own an ipod at the moment, i've been looking and reseaching on which on to buy. I'm tending to go towards the 15gb instead of the mini as i have heaps of mp3s. from what ive read, the tough pad is really good and sensitive etc, but does it have a lock function? like a mobile phone so that it doesnt change track, stop, when it's in your pocket?

@ playdreamer:
I, (and a lot of european ipod owners with me) are very glad there is something they called "eupod"!
thank you guys, thank you!

Posted by pepijn on February 23, 2004 at 11:35 PM (PDT) Comment 314

I have seen the same apple ipod 10Gb for $200 inc delivery. I just want to see if you can give me this offer or bite it.

Posted by Thomas on February 24, 2004 at 4:49 AM (PDT) Comment 315

Nice review, this site rocks! Funny reading some the older comments saying iTunes will never come out for PC, hehe. And MusicMatch's design sucks but it's fast as h*** in converting to mp3. With the click of a button (the large red record button!), it only takes 3-4 minutes to rip an entire album.
Anyway, long live the iPod! By the way, I got a 10% discount on mine at my local Apple Store just for being a student ($269 3G iPod, woohoo!).

I've heard a lot about ipod batteries breaking down after about 2 years, is this true in the mini ipods and the 3rd generation ipods?

Posted by Matt on April 12, 2004 at 9:49 AM (PDT) Comment 317

I own a 30 gig iPod and reading some of the comments I noticed that some spoke of a 'pop' or 'clicking/ticking' sound when their songs were changing. I never had this problem and I am listening to my Pod now and have closely listened for this. Most of my songs are coded at 96k's mp3 the others at 128k's mp3 and aac.

I love my Pod and use it constantly. My library is at 4,786 right now. My battery life is still pretty good. I've timed it at about 6 to 7 hours depending on how I use it. If I put on a playlist and just leave it alone, then it will play longer. My Pod is 8 months and 13 days old. It works great and I don't have any problems with it or iTunes and I'm using windows xp, guess I just lucked out.

Posted by undertool on May 10, 2004 at 6:37 AM (PDT) Comment 319

I have windows and downloaded the itunes softwear. All of a sudden I got on and it (after using it for some time) alerted me that it could not locate some of the songs in my library. Does anyone have this problem and know why it happened?

Posted by Jodi on May 12, 2004 at 5:44 AM (PDT) Comment 320

is it wrong to charge the battery before it dies, or when it is half way down the bar?

My ipod is coming soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by ben on June 20, 2004 at 11:37 AM (PDT) Comment 323

Just bought the 15GB iPod and after some "issues" I now can say that this thing is amazing. I am a first time iPod buyer/user so I was not familiar with all details related. By the way, if you do not need to hold 10000 songs (i.e. 30GB) then why spend the $100 extra. That was my reasoning. I have been collecting MP3s for several years now and have only 1500 songs to download to the iPod.

Some of you first time users should know that there are issues sometimes with adding Firewire boards (i.e. hardware conflicts) which is optimal for the iPod interface. After having a computer tech fix the hardware conflicts I was able to download MP3s to my iPod.

I bought the Transpod holder/charger/transmitter with this as well. Sound quality was a little disappointing. High pitched noise sometimes, very low gain (i.e. have to crank car stereo way up on certain tracks), just to name a few things. Also, please note that you cannot have a protective case on your iPod and put in the Transpod. It does not fit.

Nonetheless, the iPod is a must have for anyone who is obsessed with music!

a fricken nightmare! ive had the ipod for about 3 months now and encounterd nothing but problems, the ipod itself has been sent back twice for same issue and i'm still awaiting its return (its been about 2andhalf weeks) their are cheaper options out there and if the "little white number" isn't sorted out this time then ill be taking full advantage of them!!
