I don't think Apple believes they can afford to sit on their arses, even if MS didn't take on the iPod. They have been constantly refining/updating the iPod since day 1.
I notice that the iPod shuffles don't play Apple Lossless format...this makes sense given the capacity of the shuffle and the fact that you wouldn't fit many lossless songs on there...(though it does play AIFF!!??)...but what I want to know is how does the new Shuffle handle Lossless files in iTunes...does it convert them automatically on the fly when syncing with iTunes or do you have to manually convert lossless files to AAC or otherwise in order for them to play. A lot...
Interesting...Steve clearly said in the Keynote that they would come with the new earbuds! I will definitely make sure they do before I purchase one.
I feel sorry for anyone that buys a Zune...
Haha, great post...I love it!!! As for the death penalty, most Western nations abolished it decades ago (Australia 1937)...when is the US going to catch up? The death penalty is state sanctioned murder and justifies the notion that it is OK to kill someone under certain circumstances. What's more it is shown to NOT be a deterrant to any form of crime and the numbers of innocent people killed every year in the US number in the 100's if not more.
I find the US system of government perculiar in that your political leaders are elected separately to the representatives and this creates the situation you have now, a President who basically has no real political power (influence yes but power no)!! Compare this to most Westminster style systems where the party chooses their own leaders and the majority ruling party's leader is the political leader (ie Prime Minister). Bush now looks pretty useless and has gotta feel...
Ah OK I see now that there is a separate forum for Political posts...
Finally, the beginning of the end of Bush's Reign of Terror! I must say I find the US political system odd that you can have a president that effectively wields no political power??? He's gotta feel like a pretty lame duck now! 8)
I prefer the look of the black and white iPods. If you look after it and apply a thin plastic iPod skin combined with a quality case it should keep its good looks until you upgrade to a new version.
By far the best email service I know is www.fastmail.net It's a fast but feature rich service. They have free accounts but with the one-time member fee of US$20 you can have your own sub-domain and unlimited email addresses. This is great for spam protection! I use unique email addresses for various online boards and if I ever get spam (not had a single one yet) I can just block that address and I know where it came from!!!
