Apple iPod touch review

16GB Apple iPod touch
The iPod touch has only one dedicated button at its disposal, just as the iPhone, with one function to return to the main menu or in case screen deactivation is on, to activate the screen of the Apple iPod in combination with a sliding movement on the touch screen. The touch screen works flawless and fast. The main menu shows eleven icons, four of which are displayed for playing music, videos, pictures and iTunes. The remaining seven icons are for the Safari web browser, YouTube videos, agenda, contacts, clock, calculator and general settings. Furthermore the battery indicator is shown on the screen in the main menu. The time is rendered in every menu, in other words, it is always visible.

iPod touch Digital Photos
Unfortunately the iPod touch has not been equipped with a digital camera. It is possible however to synchronize the photos from your computer with the iPod touch through iTunes. Once the pictures are on your iPod you can watch them by touching the Pictures icon in the main menu on the iPod screen. Clicking on a picture will make it appear in a medium size in the centre of the screen. And also here, just as is the case when playing music, the picture is automatically rotated when turning your iPod into a different direction. If you turn the iPod one quarter, the picture will be rendered on full screen. The icon that tells you the number of the picture and a second one that lets you go on to the next or previous picture are still visible and available.

Apple iPod touch review
When the touch screen is touched once again on a spot clear from icons, the photo will be rendered fully. Instead of having to use the icons to go to the next or previous picture you can slide your finger to the left or the right on the touch screen and the next or previous picture will appear. An additional amazing function on the iPod touch is zooming in on pictures. Not so much amazing that this function is offered but more so because of the way it is carried out. You have to place your fingers on the exact spot you want to zoom in on and then move them apart. After that you can move to the right or the left sliding on the screen. If you want to go back to full screen and undo the zooming, it is simple; just double-click on the touch screen.

The World of Classical Music versus the World of the iPod

Have you ever had the feeling that the world Beethoven was 'talking' about in his music just doesn't exist anymore? Have you ever watched a movie that used Schubert as a soundtrack and entertained the thought that Schubert didn't even know what a soundtrack is? If you have, you will be able to relate to the tension and incongruity between modernity and classical music that columnist Ivan Hewett describes in a recent article for the Telegraph.

Nor can it [classical music] be plucked from cyberspace, because it doesn't come from there. It comes from a real space. OK, I know my recording of a Bach cantata was made in a studio, but the fact that we can hear 30 people all doing something together immediately evokes the real, social space the music originally took place in.

But that's not the space we live in now. We prefer the solitary, nomadic space of trains and airport lounges, which seem to be the places we feel most at home. And we like the space of privacy and home, the one conjured in all those home makeover programmes.

Have you ever daydreamed about driving Mozart around in a car, showing him the cities, the bridges, airplanes, skyscrapers etc., and just when his mind was swimming with the foreignness of it all, you pop on a CD with his music playing?

Classical music fits badly into the Walkman world, and even worse into the iPod world. For one thing, the technology doesn't suit it very well. Try listening to an opera on an iPod, and you'll discover the software puts a gap between tracks, which is pretty annoying if you're trying to enjoy the dramatic flow of an opera scene. And just try searching for your favourite Beethoven trio on iTunes, which is designed to search for "song" and "artist", and copes badly with keys and opus numbers.

Perhaps that is why classical music is so attractive; it opens a portal into the idealized version of a world that is no longer to be found. When we listen to it, we have the best of both worlds - a temporary escape into the beauty of the music, and a guaranteed return to the private mobility of our modern world, with all its challenges and perks.

Classical music doesn't belong in this private, mobile space. It was created in a space that's vanishing - the public space of churches, libraries, debating societies and concerts. That's the real reason it's so hard to listen to it on a Walkman or an iPod.

Apple Ipod Converter

Free iPod Video Converter Tips by Mary Markell

An iPod video converter is a software that will allow you to quickly convert your computer media files (avi,mpeg etc) to a format supported by your iPod. This way you can download, transfer, convert and watch all kind of movies, TV shows and other video files on your iPod. There are a lot of free iPod converters out there and most of them include extra software that will allow you to download video before converting it and playing it in your iPod.

Here is what to look for when choosing a free iPod video converter:

- The video converter software must support as many video file formats as possible (avi, mpeg, wmv, mov, divx are just some popular formats). There are video converters that also support conversion of popular audio files (wav, mp3, ogg, m4a etc). Check out if all the necessary encoders and decoders are included in the software.

- The video conversion speed. A lot of converters while they support all the possible video formats, they are really slow and sometimes they freeze causing a lot of frustration. Many video converters do not support multithreading and batch conversion making the process of video conversion a pain. Batch conversion will allow you to convert more than one video files at the same time.

- The user interface must be friendly and designed in a way that will allow even a total newbie to access all the controls and functions of the video converter software. If a software company creates a user friendly iPod video converter, chances are that the video converter will work properly apart from being user friendly.

- Check out if the iPod video converter allows you to convert a part/segment of the movie. This is a demand if you want to watch just a part of a movie show or a football game. Be sure to use the preview feature if any, to see the output result before converting.

- The quality of the converted media file. Many iPod video converters are really fast but the output is disappointing. Video freezes, audio stops playing, screen turns red or green, short audio or video breaks during playback. This is common for some video converters. Especially if you don't know how to use the conversion process properly. Be careful when adjusting video size, bit rate etc.

Before installing any iPod video converter make sure you have the latest version of firmware for your iPod in order to get the most out of the video converter software. Download the latest firmware for your iPod for free at the apple website.

Why you need an Ipod

An Ipod is not just at tape recorder, have you noticed how many people are using them? Lots!! Why? Convenience! Thousands of hours can be recorded, and it is music of exceptional digital quality. You can listen to podcasts, audio books, and watch videos and pictures. It can store from 120 songs to 10,000 songs depending on how much memory you get for it.

Some players have available expansion slots. Expansion slots are integrated receptacles for installing additional memory via a removable memory card (Secure Digital, Multimedia Card, Compact Flash, etc.). Installation is simple; the card simply pushes in and clicks into place. This is so you can upgrade to more memory if you want

Using the USB 2.0 connection from your computer, you can transfer your favorite tunes from a music website to your Ipod quickly and easily. Don’t go for those free download sites on the Internet because they may be illegal. Instead shop around for the many online subscription and pay-per-download music services. This can be a good alternative to iTunes, which is fairly expensive. You can transfer an entire CD to your player using the USB 2.0 connectivity from your PC.

The iPod nano is a fine player, very easy to use and it works nicely with iTunes. It has some little games built in and it is supposed to play videos but the screen is tiny and useless for video. The display screen size is an option that’s up to you. It is also worth considering that mine came with 8G of flash (2000 or so tracks). In comparison to a pocket Pc, this is cheap. The nano is also much smaller than a pocket Pc, you can use it in a shirt pocket and it is hardly noticeable. Battery life is great, about three days on one charge

When you purchase your Ipod don’t forget to buy a good case for it, which will protect it. Don’t damage it! It is fairly common for the Ipod to get scratches on it, so don’t worry about this. Docking cradles, power supply, AC adapters and cables, belt clips, personal speakers, headphones/ear buds, cases, car FM stereo transmitters, lanyards, sync adapters are also available as accessories.

The Ipod has a good rechargeable battery life.The battery on the iPod is good for 20 hours and then it can be recharged, while batteries on MP3 players usually last about 3 hours. The Ipod can do your (to do) list also. Daily tasks list, contact list and calendar; personal organizers, which easily sync with Microsoft Outlook, are available on the Ipod.

Don’t forget that the Ipod is like a regular tape recorder, except you can record a long time because of the large memory space. Find out how to adapt your Ipod with an accessory so it will play over the car speakers as a CD player.

The Ipod is a very versatile gadget that can give hours of enjoyment.

Apple Ipod Itunes

Ipod And Itunes - Friends Or Foes? by John Roberts

Despite how user friendly itunes is, it can nonetheless prove a real threat to the music collection stored on your iPod. Before saying anything else, rest assured that there are steps you can take to essentially eliminate this risk, but if you keep the default iTunes settings, the risk will remain.

The first impression itunesiTunes gives is that of a very simple and easy to use software to buy music online. It also servers as a library with a huge amount of music data as well as the primary application through which you manage you iPod. Before that slick interface, however, lies cutting-edge encryption, authentication and digital rights management technology (DRM) that tries to make sure that what you download and play on your iPod is actually paid for!

Apart from Apple's own DRM restrictions, itunesiTunes seems to do everything in it's power to make sure you loose your music collection. Here is a list of dangerous itunesiTunes behaviors and settings.


Even if you are a complete beginner using PCs or an iPod, you should never, ever allow for automatic synchronization between your iTunes' music library and the library stored on your iPod. You see, an iPod can only be tied to a single iTunes library, at least in terms of synchronization. Hence, if you connect your iPod to a friend's computer (or vice versa) and iTunes starts synchronizing the two libraries, all content on the iPod will be lost! To avoid that, go to Edit - Preferences - iPod and select Manual Synchronization.

iPod is not a Backup

Many people think that their iPod also acts as a back-up of their music collection. Guess again. Data transfer always happens from your computer to your iPod and not the other way around. So, in the unfortunate event that you computer's hard disk fails and you loose your iTunes library, you can't restore your tracks from an iPod.

3rd Party Solutions

Lucky for us, the huge user base of iPod and iTunes as well as the flexible design of the iPod's operating system have allowed for the creation of 3rd party programs that can help you better manage your iPod music library. SharePod, for example, is a very simple end easy to use application that allows you to transfer songs from your iPod to your PC (and vice versa), manage your iPod playlists, share your iPod tracks across a network and much more. Anapod explorer is a similar application that also allows you to manage photos, notes and contacts, as well as convert music tracks to different file formats.
