Apple iPod Reviews

by KPY

There are many things that people say about Apple iPods. There are reviews posted all over the Internet and there will always be good or bad reviews available for the interested reader.

Here are some of the summarized reviews available on the Internet:

Throughout the years, music lovers have acknowledged the crisp sound produced by their iPods. People have always attempted to describe the different music experience and that every song seems to be played live. Aside from this, here are the features that people have written about on the net. Things that they love about the product:

1. Apple claimed that the hard drive can hold more than five thousand songs. Now, this number of songs is enough that a user would not be able to listen to the same song twice.

2. iPods comes with an ergonomic design which is the Click Wheel. Using the Click Wheel, users can easily browse through the controls of either fast forward, play, reverse, pause and stop. Apple iPod users can even access the menus using the Click Wheel.

3. Apple also counted the long battery life of up to 12 hours as very helpful to the image of Apple iPod. What is the use of storing about 5 thousand songs inside the iPod if the battery would not last until all the songs have been played.

4. Users also listed the capability of users to set up play lists on the iPod.

5. The iPod also lists the shuffle function as one of the most notable function of the iPod. It creates a sense of randomness in the play list avoiding boredom for the user.

6. Apple iPod reviews revealed that their product is an excellent audio player. This is due to four reasons:

a. The menu system is super-intuitive.

b. The sound quality is great. Although, other users contend that it would be better sounding through the use of other headphones.

c. The storage size relative to its size is a bonus.

d. Lastly, but definitely not the least, they consider this the most important; thousands of accessories of the Apple iPod to choose from.

MacBook trouble?

The corner of Nat's new MacBook now looks like this. We have no idea how it happened. Any advice? Should we be worried about her power supply swelling up? The battery is right over the other side.

How many times have you placed a call to a client, a business or a colleague or friend only to reach voice mail? Then within two or three minutes of leaving your message they call you right back. Sometimes they're honest about it and sometimes they lie but they've really been using voice mail to screen their calls.

This is just one of a long list of items of what is wrong with Corporate America. We don't allow people talk to us anymore. If we can get past that confounded voice mail tree, ("If you're calling to reach a real human, please press 8,") we don't want to leave a message. We want to talk with the person we called and not sit around and hope we're in the good graces enough that we get a phone call back. People who don't return their messages is a whole other discussion. It is becoming more and more frustrating for people to reach other people by telephone.

"Tweet me. Text me. Email me. But don't phone me. I'm screening my calls."

"It's good to know that I am not the only one who is very tired of this me-me-me, now-now-now society that we have become," claims Joseph Zeleznik, a Chicago area Attorney recruiter for Fennimore Solutions and The Placement Center.

When asked about screening calls by using voice mail, Zeleznik says that people just don't want to be interrupted. They want to control every little thing and that includes when and where they will take a phone call.

"We'll talk when I'm ready," says Zeleznik referring to the thinking of people who attempt to control every aspect of their working day. "Actually they won't even talk," he continues. "They'll just pass notes back and forth. They cut themselves off from all human interaction. They won't make a phone call all day. They'll email everybody then get on the train or bus to go home and hide behind their headphones."

But it doesn't end at the office according to Zeleznik.

"Headphones exist to draw a line in the sand and tell the world, 'don't talk to me,'" he says. "Then, when they get home, instead of doing something productive they update their Facebook page. And instead of calling people to see if they want to go out Friday night, they will send out a Tweet on Twitter."

New York State Senator Carl Kruger made headlines in 2007 when word got out that the legislator wanted to ban the use of iPods, cell phones, and other electronic devices by pedestrians in crosswalks. "You can't be fully aware of your surroundings if you're fiddling with a BlackBerry, dialling a phone number or listening to music on an iPod," Kruger said in a statement. Although Kruger didn't have any detailed statistics to back up his plan, he said the impetus for his bill (which would apply only to large cities) was a January 2007 accident in which a headphone-wearing pedestrian was killed after walking in front of a bus.

There is always a safety concern when someone is out in public and can not hear what is going on around them. Headphones in cars, on bicycles or in crosswalks and railroad crossings need to be addressed. But until more people are killed by being tuned out, not much will happen.

The Internet has also made it easy for people to tune out and remove themselves from reality. How many users of Facebook and Twitter are proud to have hundreds of "friends" in the cyber-world yet don't talk to a single person in their whole working day face-to-face? The truth is they have no real friends, just pretend friends. To have friends you need to be a friend. And to be a friend you need to have a conversation with someone - and not electronically.

But the me-me-me segment of society doesn't see it that way. Real friends expect you to indulge them occasionally with real conversation. There are obligations to friendships. Many people today just don't want to be bothered having real conversations because conversation makes them uncomfortable.

Aaron and Roxanne are a young professional couple. They have two cars parked in their condominium double-car garage. In the morning, the garage door opens and they each drive their own cars down the freeway into the downtown. At the end of the day, within a few minutes of each other, they arrive at home, pull into their garage and close the door behind them before they ever get out of their cars. They have lived next door to their neighbours for years yet have no idea who they are. They've never introduced themselves. And when a neighbour catches them outside their home, they will indulge for just a few moments until they can retreat back into the safety of their house.

In fact, it could be argued that the reason there are so few friendships in the neighbourhood is that it's possible one may have given the finger to the other on the commute today and are afraid of the reprisal.

Of course it would be better to have a conversation but it's hard to do with business colleagues when people won't even talk to their next door neighbors. People are afraid to engage face-to-face. They've gotten lazy with social skills and are afraid that a conversation might bring up a topic that they don't know anything about and be embarrassed. They want to have conversations on their terms at their time. It's a control issue.

People have checked out of living with others. And while this may have occurred, it has left a small void for people with decent social skills to climb the corporate ladders quickly. The successful CEO's of tomorrow are going to be the one's who know how to look people in the eye, shake a person's hand, wear a real genuine smile, make some small talk and refuse to be cut off from the rest of the world.

So if you want a shot at becoming CEO in your lifetime, get those iPod ear buds out of your head. Otherwise, don't whine when you get passed over for promotion. And you will get passed over because you don't answer your phone when the boss calls to offer you the promotion.

A few nice macbook images I found:

Vendo Macbook White + Bolso
Image by jorgerock
Así es. Vendo mi Macbook White 7.1 modelo del año 2010, comprando en Septiembre de ese año, por lo que hace muy poco se acabo la garantía de Apple. Pido por él 0.000. Si quiere negociar al menos inténtelo, estoy dispuesto a escuchar.

El funcionamiento del mismo es impecable. Las especificaciones técnicas:

Core 2 Duo 2.4 ghz
2 GB Ram
250 DiscoDuro
Tarjeta Nvidia 320m 256mb
Pantalla de 13.3”
El sistema operativo es Snow Leopard, pero perfectamente pueden instalar en él Lion.

Lo puedo entregar en blanco (sin programas anexos instalados) o con alguno a su petición.

El equipo tiene un detalle en la esquina superior izquierda de la pantalla, está un poco doblada (tuve mucho frío en el invierno y estaba muy cerca de la estufa) como pueden apreciar en esta imagen, solo es apreciable con el Macbook cerrado.

Por lo demás el equipo tiene los típicos rayones por el uso y por el material del que está hecho, en la parte inferior evidentemente se raya por el uso, sin embargo exceptuando el doblez que mencionaba está en perfectas condiciones.

Por favor, difundir :D.

The New iPod Video Format

For years the mp3 ruled the world and everyone used it. This format was used for music, whether a person just downloaded a song, or they decided to rip a song off of their favorite CD. No matter what it was, all files ended up in mp3 format. As of late though, things seem to have changed. Instead of mp3, we now have mp4, which is yet another type of multimedia container. This format, having been release by Apple has taken the world by storm. The biggest reason that more and more people are using it is simple because it has some abilities that the normal mp3 format does not.

One thing that users of the mp4 format are going to notice right away is that the mp4 doesn't just play music, it plays video. What does this mean exactly? It means that you don't have to have two different formats when you play your video files and your music files. Of course this gets a little bit confusing after a while, so Apple popularized the format m4A which was exactly the same as the mp4 format, but it was easier to tell when a video was being played in a stream.

So which iPods are able to take advantage of this technology? Actually all of them have the ability. That's right, every single iPod ever made is able to use mp4, though not all of them can play video. You can try to play some video on your iPod shuffle but you probably aren't going to get very far with that. The 8GB iPod models, as well as the iPod touch are capable of showing crisp clear video using this format, and you will find that the battery on the iPod touch can last for up to twenty four hours.

You can still use AVI formats in your iPod, of that there is no doubt, but there are a few things that you need to remember. While your iPod may be 5 to 8 GB, that is actually a pretty small space. AVI files are usually uncompressed and will take up a huge amount of space on the iPod. This is exactly why mp4's are important. Yes, they will still take up quite a bit of space, but it is considerably less than a raw AVI file.

The resolution of the video on each iPod differs depending on what sort of iPod you have. For example, on the 5-8 GB models, you will find that the resolution is just 320x240. On the iPod touch however, the resolution is actually 640x480, which is pretty nice for a hand held device. Your dependence on portable video will probably be the determining factor in what sort of iPod you ultimately purchase.

The iPod is capable of doing some amazing things, and you will be able to enjoy hours of entertainment whether you are at home or on the go. No matter what it is you want to watch, you can watch it easily on the iPod. So if you're in the market for some great video and audio, then go with the iPod.
