Just in case you don't go on the music board.
so good! And loads of colours as well!
Wouldn't want to set off shuffle because you ran for the bus...
the hold toggle would stop you shuffling when running. Would be annoying if you forgot to put it on though!
They should just discontinue the Classic altogether. Utter shit. Compared to the previous model, anyway.
I liked mine too before it broke. Now I have a classic, which is the same - save for that:
a) It has a fucking communist volume limiter that stops you being able to hear anything quieter than Megadeth if you're travelling on the tube or using rubbish earphones.
b) For some inexplicable reason they included a screensaver, which does nothing but add another layer of menu to what is supposed to be a simple interface.
c) When you reset the device, it comes back with the default menu, meaning that you have to go into the options and put things back the way you want them - over and over again, if you're having problems. None of the other ipods did this.
d) When you're scrolling down the artists menu, it takes account of artists names that start with 'The', even though it organises them like usual. Result, you end up going through an alphabet that looks like this: "AAAATAAABBBBTTBBBTBTBBBCCTCTCTTTTC, etc". FUCKING annoying.
e) There's more, but I'm actually getting pissed off thinking about it, now.
Surely that's like Winamp?
From my Winamp list, for example.
Uhm, how to explain...
The problem isn't how it orders artists names (putting The Auteurs in the 'A' category for example). The problem comes up when you're scrolling through the names. If you spin the wheel fast enough it will go through just the letters A, B, C, etc, until you get to the letter you want.
With the model I own, it does the same thing, but where bands have the definite article, it will display those as letters also. So you end up seeing "A, T, A, A, A, T" where before it would have just been "A".
I know the letter feature you mean from Lo's machine.
it does file An Emergency under E though. i went and changed it through iTunes and now it files them under A and E. buh?
I've not checked WinAmp. To be fair, it's not really clear which an artist should be put under in such a case, I'd say.
i've had no problems with my sixth gen so far, and i wanted to hate the thing.
in my opinion at least.
after this poor showing. About time, really.
followed by Sony then Microsoft
Psht. Creative are to Apple what Rover are to BMW. Why bring them up.
IMO, Samsung's new phone is the closest anyone else is getting to a good phone + a decent MP3 player.
You know what, you're right! Skimming through this there's no sight of anything that resembling an iPod. There are things that look like iPods, but are actually phones and e-mailer things. There are other things that could be iPods but hold about 2 CDs worth of music.
What the fuck are they doing?
But every year Apple pass go and collect £200 from me. What am I supposed to do?
Fazing out the classic iPod to one model and lowering hard drive size, showing that they have plans to wipe out that part of their history forever.
Capitalising on the Nano's ability to be affordable for teenage girls who need to look cool in school by bringing it back to its second generation look and adding lots of preeettyy colours.
iPhone and iPod touch get no noticeable new features other than this last.fm but shit Genius feature.
So people who had the 160gb now have to get two new iPods? Apple can GET TAE FUCK.
...until their next announcement.
So I can get rid of the piece of crap one I have now. I was hoping for an iPhone with drastically increased memory, but they can't even get that right.
Is there actually that much Dream Theatre and Seinfeld slap bass anthems even uncompressed?
that was boring, really was hoping for more new stuff, cheaper classic or bigger touch at least.
You utter fucking cunts. No one should refresh their product range once a year. Once every three years, tops. I'm sick of everything being outdated as soon as you've bought it, and you want *more* new stuff?! Get to fuck.
On the new iPod Touch it claims:
A built-in speaker lets you hear the music, dialogue, and action without headphones, perfect for casual listening."
NO NO NO! A built-in speaker so more utter wankers can annoy us on public transport. You total bastards.
that and VOLUME BUTTONS. WOOP WOOP.
Nice of Apple to so swiftly putting out these ground breaking additions. I don't mind that the re-sale value of my touch has been toe punted in the balls, so long as it's in the name of progress. THANKS STEVE!
i could get one and blast out Atari Teenage Riot whenever kids on a bus put some tinny r&b on.
I have long considered this course of action but really it just seems more ludicrous.
and it doesn't have mp3 capability,.
Get with it, man!
wonder what detergent he uses?
