#135, a 20 gig Mac iPod for Christmas.

I'm pleasantly surprised how quickly my 16.3 gig of music downloaded to the iPod.

i got a 10 giger for $368 on that day after thanksgiving sale. it's damn cool.

marware carrying case with armband should be arriving any day.

i'd like to try jogging with it, but from all the posts i've read (mostly on the apple ipod forum) it's hit-or-miss whether it'll freeze up after the buffer runs out. seems like it depends on A) where on your body you keep it, and B) how "smooth" or "jerky" you run

a PC friend of mine is thinking about getting one (his first apple purchase), but he wants to try jogging with mine first.

Well, sorta... Apple posted some information about converting Windows-compatible iPods to Macintosh format, but the process requires a reformatting of the hard drive in the device, thereby deleting all of your songs. If you have a way of transferring the MP3 files between your current PC and your soon-to-be Mac (read: OS X 10.2 has native Windows file-sharing capiblities so you should be fine) before you convert the iPod, then you'll have no problems when you get your new Mac system. See question #9 in <a href="http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60920" target="_blank">Apple Knowledge Base Article 60920</a>. Note, though, that MacWorld San Francisco is just around the corner, and if Apple were to do any updates to the iPod line, MWSF would be the time they would do it. Just in case they do update the iPod, you're probably better off waiting until after January 6th to make your purchase.

Now I have to decide weather I can reasonably fork over $370 for one of these puppies... <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

10 gb Windows iPod. Reformated to HFS when I realised that what I really needed was a shiny new iBook!

(It works much better than the old Mac Portable I used to have...unlike my P3 Toshiba Satellite...!)

Picked up 154 (20GB) while in the States last week. I'm trying to replace my 6-year-old MD player/recorder and iBook.

It's not so bad.

MINUS 1 (155)

As you can see in the "something's fishy" thread in Future Hardware, my iPod was a casualty to an exploding can of Coke.

It was the original, used every day, and absolutely reliable... until this.



As soon as the new ones are released, it is getting replaced.

Been trying to get a 10 or 20GB iPod in UK for last two weeks via a dealer (MacWarehouse type). The two main suppliers in the UK who the dealers get their gear from - Ingram Micro and Computer 2000 - are both out of stock of any sized Mac iPods. Coincidence?

One of them (Comp 2k) told my dealer today that it was 'because of the Chinese new Year!!' - I actually overheard the conversation.

Does this suggest a revamp in the Apple version?

Note: Apple (UK) store have a 5-7 days lead time. I know there may be some available in other places but have reasons for going through my dealer. There are loads of Windows versions about.

My 20 gigger just shipped from Apple Store UK.

Should be here by Wednesday.

<a href="http://www.johnlewis.com" target="_blank">www.johnlewis.com</a> have loads available to UK buyers.

The fact that John Lewis have them and Apple have started to ship back orders might indicate no update soon.

I hope I'm wrong cos mine'll go back.

I'm involved in an event that I'd rather not talk about, and we were supposed to be getting an iPod from Apple as a prize, but we were told that they couldn't get us one. So they gave us an iBook instead, and we've now been told that we are going to get the iPod as well! I believe it's a 5 GB one, so it appears that there are still some around.

Edit. On that note, I'd better change my location. Internship form going in soon...
