    Is it true that iPod's battery last for about 18 months or so and then it has to be replaced 'exclusively' from Apple at a price range of around US$100? :shock:

    That used to be the case. I heard they were changing the battery type but I'm not positive of this.

    I've heard it's fixed. And I'm really tempted to buy one, they look very sexy. Great toy.

    They are great if your on the road or have a long commute. My friend has his hooked up to an RF converter(?) that allows him to use it with his car radio. It's on my top five list of things to get.

    1. Laptop
    2. 10D body
    3. Harley Nighttrain
    4. Clone of Kate Beckinsale or Charisma Carpenter
    5. Ipod

    The iPod is an "simple" Mp3 (AAC, WAV etc.) player. You can use it on Mac Os (X) and Windows, you'll need firewire or USB to connect it to your computer. Then drag your music from your HD to your iPod an you're done.
    I have one and I've expierenced no probs.

    Basically it has a mini hard drive that stores all of your music. Thats about it.

    It is also the only player that can (legally) play the songs you might download with iTunes. Although there are ways around this!
