    Aren't you a bit old to have an IPOD.

    Are you sure it wasn't your hearing aid that stopped working?

    I got the iPod Nano, as there are no moving parts, so not much to go wrong. The normal iPod is a mini HD, so it's bound to fuck up if it's constantly being jogged about when in use.

    Apple hardware have always been unreliable, despite the low volume production.

    PC used to have more inferior hardware but they caught up really fast.

    For the iPOD, it could be a quality problem because of the high production, something Apple QC department were never used to.

    What's the problem with it PP? My first I dropped rather heavily after a year and the disk went - made a whirring noise - The replacement Apple gave me has been going for 2 years now okay - And it is always being used whilst exercising and travelling. My only complaint with mine is the battery life - about 7 hours - I'll upgrade to another iPod - I've yet to see an alternative which offers the same for the price.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    This is from one of the customer reviews on Amazon for the iPod 80Gb. I loved the reasoning for their complaint: They have to spend money and time putting music on to the iPod - "You mean that it doesn't come with all of my favourite music pre-loaded!!!!" - Then they also complain because they bought the wrong cable.

    "I received one of these Ipods for Christmas from a well meaning partner who couldn't think of anything else to buy me. A box of soap or bunch of flowers would have been better! At least I wouldn't have had to spend so much money and waste so much time to get any value at all out of it.
    I seem to spend my life now down loading podcasts, syncing the Ipod loading CDs and photos. Then there are the times when it won't even switch off because it's running out of charge - I suppose I'll have to buy an in car charger and a mains charger to solve that to add to the reasonable set of headphones and the fm transmitter I had to buy so I can use my car stereo with the Ipod. Plus of course it needed a better cover than the flimsy one provided for what is supposed to be something you carry around. I tried to buy an AV cable but found the one I bought is incompatible with the IPod because it is for the zen creative mp3 player - perish the thought that there should be any standard interfaces - more of my time and money down the drain."

    I apologize for my stupidity, but what does an ipod do?

    Is it just an mp3 player?

    ooh ok then.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Jump to: navigation, search
    The correct title of this article is iPod. The initial letter is shown capitalized due to technical restrictions.




    iPod (fifth generation) in Apple Universal Dock, iPod nano (second generation) and iPod shuffle (second generation)


    iPod is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple and launched in October 2001. Devices in the iPod range are primarily digital audio players, designed around a central click wheel — with exception to the iPod Shuffle, which uses buttons because of it's size. As of October 2005, the line-up consists of the video-capable fifth generation iPod, the smaller iPod nano, and the display-less iPod shuffle. The full-sized model stores media on an internal hard drive, while the smaller iPod nano and iPod shuffle use flash memory. Like many digital music players, iPods can also serve as external data storage devices. In January 2007, Apple announced the iPhone, a device that combined the features of the video-capable iPod with mobile phone and mobile Internet capabilities.
    Apple's iTunes software is used to transfer music to the devices. As a free jukebox application, iTunes stores an entire music library on the user's computer and can play, burn, and rip music from a CD. It can also transfer photos, videos, games, and calendars to the models that support them.
    Apple focused its development on the iPod's unique user interface and its ease of use, rather than on technical capability. As of October 2004, the iPod is the world's best-selling range of digital audio players and its worldwide mainstream adoption made it one of the most popular consumer brands. Some of Apple's design choices and proprietary actions have, however, led to criticism and legal battles.
    On Monday, April 9, 2007, Apple announced that over 100 million iPods had been sold worldwide.[1] This makes the iPod the best-selling music player in history and one of the most successful (best selling) electronic devices in history.[1]

    I've got a nano too and my mate said I was a poof.

    (it's a black one by the way, not pink or white)

    I still have my original 5GB iPod. Replaced the battery once and now get about 11 hours of playback time. One of the most reliable electronic gizmos that I've ever had. Perfect for a geezer like me who thinks that all the good music in the world was produced before 1980.

    F*****g Ipod - I thought this thread was going to be about the all new iGasm.





    As far as I can tell the iGasm works hand-in-hand with the iPod for the pleasure of females. Apparently it “vibrates” to the song’s beat, providing an amazing sexual euphoria of sounds and feelings for chicks.

    Might be worth a try if you've got yourself a nympho girlfriend or the old "trouble and strife" needs a bit of a kick start .

    Great Idea wayne,
    My wife gets "demanding" at certain times of the month and as Mrs Q pointed out I am an old geezer, so maybe this sort of device would "fit the bill" so to speak, to assist when my natural resouces can't meet the demand, which I must say, at these times, would tax the prowess of a
    20 y old, let alone someone closer to 60, although a studly 50+.

    BTW re the OP, my I pod has decided to live again, woke its self up and working as good as.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    iPod sex toy arouses Apple's ire


    A vibrating sex toy accessory for the iPod appears to have got Apple's legal team all hot and bothered.


    Adult store Ann Summers, seller of the "iGasm", told the British tabloid News of the World that Apple's legal team had threatened it with legal action over its advertising posters.
    "Go at it hard and fast with a pounding drum and bass track or chill with the ambient classic," reads a marketing brief for the £30 ($NZ81) iGasm, which plugs into any music player and vibrates in sync with the beat.
    Apple says the iGasm ads, which show a female silhouette listening to an iPod with a cord snaking into her underwear, are a rip-off of its own iPod ads.
    "We hope this request to remove it [the ads] immediately will prevent us having to consider further action," News of the World quoted a legal letter sent by Apple's lawyers as saying.
    Apple refused to comment on the issue and Ann Summers did not respond to comment requests.
    But it's not the first time Apple has had a run-in with iPod sex toy makers - in November last year it was reported that Apple scuttled a Japanese company's attempts to bring to market a device called gPod.
    Apple said the gPod, which has features similar to the iGasm, infringed on its "pod" trademarks.
    At least two other companies, both American, sell vibrating iPod sex toys - iBuzz and OhMiBod.
    Advertising on the iBuzz website is similar to that used for iGasm, but the company behind the device, Love Labs, did not respond to requests asking if Apple had threatened it with legal action as well.
    Suki, founder of OhMiBod, worked at Apple for 8 years and said in an email interview that, since starting her new company, she has tried to steer clear of Apple's trademarks.
    "Some companies [like the ones being sued by Apple] think that the PR generated by this is funny or can drive sales," she said.
    "We are happy to ride the coattails of the iPods success [like many other iPod accessory companies] but do not feel that negative PR for Apple brings us anything but 'badwill'."
    OhMiBod has an Australian online store where it sells its vibrating toy for $119.
    Justin Lewis, the owner of the Australian store, said he had sold over 2000 units since the product launched here in November last year.
    But devices that translate iPod music into vibrations aren't the only high-tech sex toys around.
    Internet-connected sex devices, part of a field called "teledildonics", are personalising cyber sex as they can be controlled remotely via a computer. Teledildonics is a growing market in the US but it is yet to make a splash in Australia.
