There must be something wrong with the IDC numbers that were just released. IDC says that Apple shipped 1 675 000 machines in 2003. According to Apples financial briefing yesterday they sold 833 000 machines during october, november and december. That leaves only 842 000 machines shipped for the rest of 2003, or approx. 280 000 pr. quarter. Surely this isn't right. How trustworthy are IDC's numbers?
I have about 2400 CDs organized in 4513 albums (1159 artists). It is difficult to tell exactly how many CDs there are - I haven't counted them for a while . It is mostly classical music (a lot of opera) - around 2000 CDs, with the rest pop and rock.
Not really. It is almost instantaneous in all cases (except when the disk needs to spin up). I don't touch type, so I watch the keyboard as I type. When I look up at the screen everything has been found. When I browse by artist or genre there is a short lag, but not more than 1 second from I click on the artist until the list is shown. The library is on an external 250 GB Maxtor FireWire disk. The machine is a 17" PB.
I finally finished ripping my collection: On my iPod: 2422 songs - 11,30 GB On iTunes: 40448 songs - 221,76 GB On my Computer: 40448 songs - 221,76 GB % legally acquired: 99,9%
A: I'm not sure B: About 36 000 C: About 36 000 D: 99,9%
I can hear the difference on a stereo. Not on the iPod or through the computer. I only listen to the ripped songs through the iPod, never through my stereo (Conrad Johnson amplifiers and Quad electrostatic loudspeakers), so I should probably just rip at 128 kbps. But I think that 192 kbps is a compromise that will let me use the iPod on the stereo if need be without being too dissatisfied.That's nothing. I have a friend who has more than 20 000 CDs. I know of people that...
I'm in the same situation, but a bit more extreme. I'm in the process of ripping my CD's (about 2200 of them - ripping in 192 kbps AAC) and am soon running out of space on the 250 GB external disk I use for my music library. I will need to add another disk soon. I could of course put it all on a 0,5 TB disk, but they don't exist. So the question stands: How do you spread an iTunes library over 2 disks (if you want iTunes to handle organizing it all). I could of...
What's the big deal? I get about 3,5 - 4 hours from my PB (17") (Yes - I really do - Just today I used it for notetaking in class. After 2 periods I still had about 65% charge left. When I lecture I keep the PB turned on for 1 h. 45 min. continuously with a video canon connected. I usually have about 50-60% charge left after this). Just turn off BlueTooth and AirPort when you don't use it and keep the light on the screen down. Then - after 3-4 hours, close the screen,...
If you go to the AppleStore an configure a dual 1,25 G4 with 256 MB RAM, 80 GB HD, Combo drive and Radeon 9000 it ends up at 1599$. Not too bad.
$799 for the 800 MHz eMac $999 for 1 GHz w/combodrive Terje
