New version seems really nice so far... It will be amazing when I can buy tuntes. Love browsing through the store. I feel like a kid in the candy store. Its just going to only keep getting better and better.
So the question I have is, who here is going to re-import their music collection in AAC format.
I'm thinking about re-importing my music collection as AAC files, but it's the sort of thing I'd rather do on a desktop, and my only Mac is a Powerbook. Maybe when I break down and get myself a iMac/PowerMac....
Update: How much of a difference is there between AAC files and MP3 files, both in size and quality?
Apple is claiming about a 25% space saving at the same bit-rate and the default is 128 kbps (or whatever the unit is). Several people claim that Ogg Vorbis is better but since AAC is part of the MPEG4 standard, its a no brainer for Apple.
Am just going to order a 15 gig iPod. Been waiting since Feb...... Heh, patience is rewarded.
I'll recode all of my CDs as AAC for it. BTW, you should never convert mp3 ->AAC as there is no point whatsoever. Always convert from the CD source (I know you knew that jfp but some people might not).
Wonder how long it'll take to migrate the music store to Canada? My 15 gigger is supposed to ship May 2 +m 3-5 days shipping..... I'm sitting in DC right now but my credit cards are all Canadian.... ratso.
The Apple music store FREAKS ME OUT!!! ::--)) Integration with iTunes 4 is great. Most innovative thing to happen all year in the music world!!!! The samples are STUNNING quality. Click listen click listen click listen click listen click listen click listen -- that's what I've been doing for the last 2 hours.
WOW -- that's all I can say after realizing what the future of the music industry is going to be like. Better for the environment too.
