Whoohoo! I finally got my ipod today. How freakin cool is this thing. I love the clam shell design of the box, very slick. I have only seen a few first gen ipods before and they were all locked in cases. So I was blown away when I saw how small this thing is. I was doing some Christmas shopping today and couldn't help chuckle at all the people I saw clutching their huge cd players.
I purchased the 20GB unit and as soon as I placed it in the cradle itunes opened and asked me if I wanted to transfer my music. Less than 9 minutes later I had all my 1500+ mp3's sitting on my ipod, yay firewire!
So far I am loving this unit but I am not too crazy about the remote. I prefer my LCD remote from my Sony MD player. I wonder if Apple did not include an LCD remote due to battery life concerns. Also I prefer the drop-around-your-neck style of headphone wires that are common on Sony products.
I wish the playlists on the ipod were smart playlists like in itunes. Is it possible to create more than one on the go playlist?
In itunes I have all my songs rated so that within a certain genre the songs I like are played first, however on the ipod it plays all the songs within that genre. It is possible to tell the ipod to play certain songs within a playlist? Sort of like un-checking certain songs in itunes.
So far I am super impressed with the ipod and wish I got one sooner. It's funny to read some of the ipod forums and see PC users raving about how cool this Apple product is.
