I Have Joined Fumbling Hordes Of The Self-Inflicted Legally Deaf

Everyone at Massive has been given an iPod-Mini for Xmas. Now I walk the streets, legally deaf, a peril to those around me I fumble at the traffic buttons waiting for the reassuring vibrations before I fling myself before the silent gliding deadly traffic.

I really like the iPod. My iPod. No. I LOVE my iPod. I like iTunes and within a day of having both tried every hack there is. I understand why you can’t easily transfer music off the iPod – but its a loosing war.

AudioBooks are great. I like that they can have internal bookmarks – nothing worse than trying to find out where you were up to in an 8 hour music file. Audio books are going to go boomtime with this technology.

Podcasting is very interesting. Over the holidays I intent to dive into the podcast scene and listen to everything I can get my hands on.

iPod Feature Wish List

DRM should allow use on two computers. I have a computer at home and at work I want my iPod to sync with both. If I have added a song to my IPod at home, when I get to work it should be added to my iTunes at work and visa versa.

If I am listening to music and I plug my iPod into the computer – I would like the option to automatically continue playing that track from where it was up to. iPod Playing – Dock with PC, PC starts playing.

All play lists should bookmark – there should be a “continue from where you were” function. It should be the default function of the >|| button from the main menu. There should be a global playlist bookmark anbd each playlist should have a bookmark.
