new iTunes, new Quicktime, new iPod - http://www.apple.com/music/
mmm, ipod more sexier
i don't see separate Mac and PC SKUs. GASP!!!! Did they finally make one iPod that works on both platforms???!?!?!?!!!??!?!!
that would be cool if they did. I would get one to use as a hard drive.
you can buy songs through iTunes for 99 cents a song. Sweet.
i posted about it in the mac forum
It's too smooth. Looks ugly. I prefferred the remote connector that wrapped around the headphone jack, too. And I hate the new button layout.
On the plus side, it is bigger, and MUCH thinner. My 10GB 2nd-gen is .72 inches thick, the new iPod seems to be .61 for the 10GB model. The ads also claim it's lighter than 2 CDs, and I really like the Dock, that kills the hassle associated with trying to get the darn firewire port to stay open when plugging it in.
and Finally, you can customize the menus! I don't feel like I need to do that, but it's nice to know Apple is looking out for us. I wonder if those abilities will come out in the next patch for us old-podders?
the iTunes Music Store, I'm not so sure about.
d'oh! they made them cheaper! only $299 for a 10GB, and engraving only $19.
oh well, I'm happy with mine. It looks cooler and less like a suppository (sp?)
Yeah, I know. I saw that just after I posted. So much for checking ahead of time.
i merge u!
looks cool, me thinks
I think buying songs on iTunes is really cool, darn good price for a full quality mp3 too (not just streamed or other crap like other music services will provide). Nice guitar as well .
person on apple discussion forums says new ipods aren't simultaneously compatible.
This is totally sick. I'm buying tons of songs.
This is much better than hassling with p2p programs.
so what is the deal with the new format? ACC? Are the devices going to remain backward compatable with mp3? Can you convert your mp3's to ACC? And what exactly are the limits? I've read that you can ahare over 3 macs, you can put on music players, but then I also heard something about a 10 burn limit. How is this encoded and enforced? I'm very intrigued by all this, but am wary....
thoughts, comments, preguntas?
i bought a song on their music service, copied the .m4p file to my PC, and it wouldn't play. It says it's ACC Protected or something.
Try burning an mp3 cd from itunes, then you can use it anywhere.
I want the new iPod
yes, but will the new iTunes allow you to do that, or will it make you convert to ACC?
$0.99 should be how much a song costs with unlimited use. Any limitations and it becomes a ripoff. CD's cost $15, which include usually 10-14 songs, plus you pay for the quality, the medium, the packaging, and the lyrics.
1) Purchase song for 99 cents.
2) Burn song to Audio CD using iTunes
3) Import song from Audio CD using iTunes
Now you have a regular mp3. I can play the mp3 on my PC with no problems. I don't think the mp3 isn't protected or restricted in any way.
