Re: New iPod

The sad thing is there would be a multitude of buyers, just because it was an Ipod.. Hilarious vid.

Re: New iPod

Nope...and I don't think I ever will. It is a super fad! remember the walkmann? Party on man! Does the iPOD do anything that a normal MP3 player does not do?

Re: New iPod

That's brilliant...

I wish they had done that for the Mac Mini....it works the same way, except you lug all your schizz around in a Walmart bag instead of a fancy backpack....

Yes, a 30 Gb photo, and after owning a Creative Mp3 player before it, I have no trouble saying the iPod is worth the extra money.

Um SMTB, the Walkman wasn't a fad.

Do you get your mp3 from the web or or do you rip them off CD's you buy? What kind of quality is it if you get them off the web?

Re: New iPod

CD's I own. The quality is pretty good, much better than whatever Creative was using to compress the data.

I like the size (much smaller than my 20Gb Creative), intuitive controls, color screen, the much easier to use software and the EQ features all better on the iPod.

What I don't like? The thing scratches incredibly easy, but you can buy all sorts of iAccessories, including a cover, if you want. That's about it really. If you use multiple computers to synch, you have to be careful too as it will erase songs not on the computer you plug into with the default settings in place.

Re: New iPod

I also have a 30GB iPod Photo, and love it.

I'm NOT a huge Apple fan; Mac computers amount to an annoyance for me, and only add complexity to my job (desktop 'engineering' and escalated support), as I support 4000 Wintel desktops and a paltry 80 Macs. As far as I can see, there is nothing my client's Mac users can do on their Macs that they couldn't do just as well on a WinDOH!z box.

However, with an open mind and a desire for an MP3 player, I went shopping, and included the iPod stuff in my list of potential purchases.

I had recently bought a Creative Labs "Zen Micro" MP3 player for a friend, and had about a week to play with it before handing it over. I came away less than thrilled with the interface and the software. I narrowed the choices to the Zen Micro and a 30GB iPod, but after tinkering with a co-worker's iPod, the choice seemed clear. I did spend a bit more on the Photo version, which wasn't necessary, but I do a lot of photography, and perhaps I'll find a regular use for it someday. I figure that the 30GB capacity alone makes it worth the price premium over the 5GB Creative unit I'd been looking at. Other benefits of the iPod versus the Creative unit? The sound quality is noticeably better; the software isn't buggy; it outputs higher/cleaner volume; and the interface ("click wheel") is far superior.

With a 30GB hard drive inside, the iPod IS both bigger and heavier than the Creative unit, but I don't mind at all. One qualm is the shorter battery life; the 'laptop'-style hard drive's moving parts surely help the iPod suck the life outta the internal battery faster than the Zen Micro's microdrive. However, I have both a wall charger (included with the iPod) and a car charger, and I've not yet had the battery go dead on me during extended use, so I'll live with it.

I'm not an Apple convert, but this is a nice product...perhaps the best MP3 player on the market?

Re: New iPod

Seems like everyone has an iPod these days, except for me... I had one but sold it here...

Re: New iPod

I've tossed around the idea of buying one many times...but I just can't see myself using it. I would never listen to it on my bike, I have a CD player in my car, and at work I already have all my music on my laptop.
