    Thanks, RIAA.



    And thanks for the link, PBG3. Alas, the one person who I know could really use this is probably not up for the hackery involved, nor for the lack of support.



    Grrrr.

    Looks like Apple has built (or bought) a lot of extra functionality into the iPod. Good recording was one feature I was really pining for when I picked up my 3rd gen iPod. I got a 30GB model for an unbelievable price at the time. Sadly my supply of friends/aquintances moonlighting in retail seems to have tappered off now that most either have real jobs or are far enough along that they can make enough money within the confines of academe. But this is all a useless digression.



    I wonder though, how long before this level of recording prowess (16/96 is not too bad at all, if unconventional) somehow comes to work with Garageband and the rumored USB/Firewire audio box? Could be good for musicians who want to quickly record an idea and work on it later. An iPod, a good quality small mic, and your choice of instrument. I particularly see urban kids running around sampling random noises, then taking it all back to garageband as they work out their beats...

    And this is the same Matsu that once got into an argument by saying that computers were overemphasized for young people in the classroom setting?



    Apple is supposed to release a Sub $600 Mac and our our local curmudgeon sounds like he is about to start talking about backbeats and bling - what the hell is going on?!?
