I bought a 30-gig model a couple of weeks ago and now I rarely leave home without it. It's like having a sound track for your life. I've been taking a bit of razzing at work along the lines of the "cult" references in the Post story, but the little gizmo is simply a joy. And the sound of the new file format is simply not to be believed. Pricey? No question. Quality and design? Nothing else even comes close.

Yeah, my 15GB iPod pretty much shadows my every move.

And, as the article clearly portrayed, there's a cornucopia of iPod peripherals out there. There's such huge demand for us to review them as well.

Something that I knew, but just hit me. Anyone out there with iPods store/back up files? I do have some essentioals that I need to back up and I'm going to get an ext HD for it. But I could also use the iPod. Anyone care to share their experience??

H!

Oddly enough, I have yet to use the iPod 3G for data storage. I already have 40GB on my PowerBook G4, and a 14GB SmartDrive and 40GB MicroGB+, and a 160GB Firewire beast, as well as numerous USB Keychain drives with capacities ranging from 32MB to 768MB. I just haven't had a need, personally, to carry around gigs of data on the iPod, especially since it no longer uses an industry standard firewire port... I'm not one that likes to carry around cables...

Works well for back-up but I use it mainly for keeping certain files handy. There are a few tricks though. If you plug an iPod into a different computer, you are asked whether you want to make that computer (iTunes) the default. If you do, you will end up deleting the iPods library. Re-synching to the original computer will restore the music files. So, if you want to use the iPod to transfer files, be sure not to change the default (its a form of copy protection, I presume).

Gateway has just released an mp3 player. 128 Mb for US 129.99. Duh.
