iPods!!!!:)

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I don't know about anyone else but I feel the iPods as they are right now are the perfect MP3 player. It does what it is supposed to do wonderfully. A lot of people talk about video capabilities and what not but I think it is fine as is. Keep bringing the prices down and adding more features through software. Bigger hard drives but does anyone else feel the same as me.
I love the miniBook!!! Oh yeah!!!

I remember playing Loderunner on my Macintosh Plus like 12 years ago. That was a fun game to play when it was in black and white. Ohhh the memories.

You can still play them. I downloaded Shufflepuck Cafe and Lode Runner (both B&W) and run them on OSX. Coolest vintage games.

I also have Iago which is like Othello or Reversi. I downloaded Social Climber (that was a great game) but ran too fast and was unplayable.

people, people, people...

the real reason Breakout is the only game on the iPod is:
Intellectual Property of Steve Jobs (when at Atari in '76)

Steve's baby. not going to provide a 3rd party game before his.
Now that the rights licence has been set with all-Steve IP, it will be possible for other games to get ported to the iPod.

if it's a colour screen iPod, you can bet the first colour game will be... Super Breakout (also owned by SJ)

Tetris licensing for handheld devices is mostly 'owned' by Nintendo (just saw a TV show - GameHeadz - on the history)

now if we're considering "games that work well with scroll wheel"
how about Tempest? or Maelstrom?

The only thing that would make me buy a new iPod (that I can think of) is if they added a radio to the thing.

A radio would definitely bee nice, and honestly can't be that hard to implement.

Oh, and a built in GPS would have me sold

I want a vibrate feature like a cell phone so I can have reminders.
I want to be able to set mp3s as my 'reminder tones'.
I want the AM/FM tuner (duh)
I want twice the battery life.
I want a minimum 20 gig storage space.
I want color displays.
I want 10 new games playable on iPod.
I want all of this for 1/4 the current cheapest price.

(there... that about does it... )

And the red shaft that was fat in the middle and a rounded point at the top?

Would you care to elaborate? I hadn't heard that the iPod was now open to third party games.
