I can't believe Apple is charging for ringtones. That's ludicrous. I can make my own ringtones for free for phones that can't even do video, and I get way better selection too.
Should Rockbox still work on the new 160GB classic? They're still 5.5G, right?
And again, the prices in euros are ridiculous compared to those in US dollars. The 8GB nano sells in France for €174,75 (€209 tax-inclusive), which, at the current rate, is equivalent to $238.49 / $285.27, versus $199 (tax-exclusive) in the US.The 8GB iPod Touch sells for €258.36 / €309 ($352.36 / $421.66) versus $299 (tax-exlusive), and the 16GB sells for €341.97 / €409 ($466.69 / $558.16), versus $399 (tax-exlusive).
it just reads any image file on the folder of the mp3s.
Now they gave it a new name, the iPod classic. I would call these newer iPod classics by their name, they aren't 6G iPods. So the new iPods are still 2G iPod shuffle, 3G iPod nano, 1G iPod classic, and 1G iPod touch. If anything, that iPod touch deserves to be called the 6G iPod.
I suppose it might really depend on the iPod's future. In 9-12 months, will Apple even offer anything like an iPod classic? If the touch will eventually use a hard disk, as the traditional iPod always has, and if the classic model is axed, will it lose the "touch" moniker? Would it then be the 7G iPod?I'd say, to make it easier, the classic should be the 1G classic, and the touch should be the 1G touch. Then, if Apple decides to offer a later product solely called 'iPod", that'll be the 6G. Otherwise, we might end up back-tracking, calling certain iPods "true 6G" or what have you. Then again, what defines a "generation"?
Hi guys.About new iPods: what are their S/N ratio and Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)?Are they still use the Wolfson Dac (24 bit like the Wolfson Wm8750S in Teclast players?)?Thanks

It is unknown if the iPods will work with Windows 2000 using 3rd party software.
Many people on iLounge are complaining about that but I don't think it is a big deal. Windows 2000 was released 7-8 years ago (I remember buying a PC back in 1999 that came with Windows 2000) so it is pretty old. Most of the PC market is running Windows XP and newer computers are running Vista. I don't think Apple is asking too much from their users by requiring them to spend less than $100 to upgrade to Windows XP Pro.Then again, many people have been running Windows 2000 for many, many years now and are happy with it. I guess we can't expect Apple to support the aged OS forever.

I just googled what a Vcap dock is and it's some snakeoil voodoo black box costing $390 plus S/H.
