I Wish I Had An MP3 PLAYER LIKE AN IPOD, im down to converting all my mp3s to 56kbps into my NOKIA 3300 so i could listen to at least 90 songs and have some variety, if i wanted CD quality i would upload only 30 songs or so....damn, but at least i could listen to music and all i need to do is plug it into my computer and download tracks and im done...not really hard, ,...

ne one kno tha cheapest place to get an ipod?

I don't know where you are at, but if you got a Costco nearby, go there.  I just saw the 40 gig iPod for $379.99 (that's $20 buck off the regular price).  Also, if you are a student, then roll on over to any Apple store (online as well) and ask for the student discount... I think you get something like $30 buck of the 40 gig ipod.

Definitely pick up the iPod... nothing out there beats it.

so you mean that sony is using their own technology but you don't like it because it's not the everyday norm *cough cough UMD cough cough*  ;D

MP3 0WNS the handheld music market, Sony's ATRAC3 is too late.
There IS NO standard format, or any format at all in the handheld mini-TV disc market.. big difference.  :)


sorry but you're wrong on the second half... with portable dvd players already pretty cheap in the market along with haveing a better battery life....UMD is useless... no difference

My pops bought me the 40gb iPod when i graduated college last december.  And let me tell you, the iPod is 10x better than i had even anticipated. I have the Belkin adaptor that everyone is talking about, where you plug it into the ipod, and it transmits to your fm radio on 1 of 4 frequencies.  My complaints on that are basically what they all said. If you use it on long trips, you'll have to change frequencies, and if the ipod slides around a lot, your quality will lack.  The interface on the ipod is the best, and i've even used itunes to buy songs, and its so damn easy once you buy the song, it transfers to your ipod instanly (with firewire anyway).  I probably have 500 cd's and i can't wait for the day that i don't have to drag them everywhere.  I only have about 100 on the ipod right now, so i still have work to do, but i can't tell you how convenient its is to have literally 1000's of songs stuffed into that little thing and listen to them whenever I want. I use it when i drive, when i work out, when i'm just chillin.  I hook it up to my home stereo and my car. I really am getting away from cd's.  While it is expensive, if you are a music fiend, you'll wonder how you used to go places but made sure you drug all your cd's with you. I highly recommend it. Peace

Forgot to mention.. discs/handheld consoles that can do games/mp3/radio as well as movies (possibly DivX & other formats)..
The portable DVD market is kinda different from the one Sony's trying to get into, their priority being: games > movies > music.
All rolled into one. Really another discussion though..

What amazes me, is how brainwashed most people are when it comes to Ipod, even if there's players with better/bigger harddrives, more features, twice the battery capacity, the same browse system, better screens, etc.
Power of the media, I guess.

I agree with you that there are players out there with a longer battery life or higher capacity, but they got nothing on the Apple design.  Apple always comes straight with nicely designed products.  I think that is a hugely important part of any product.  Plus combined with the ease and simplicity (not to be confused with lacking features) of iTunes... you have a nice combination to enjoy your music.

I would not get the 3rd Gen iPod.  If you can cough up another 50 bucks... pick up the $300 4th Gen iPod instead of the mini.  Here's why:

1.  iPod mini is $250 for 4 gigs.  You get 16 extrag gigs with 50 bucks more for the 20 gig ipod.
2.  Don't buy the old 3rd Gen iPod.  The click wheel on the 4th Gen iPod is a hundred times better than the buttons on the 3rd Gen iPod.  Like I mentioned before... I bought a 1st Gen iPod and that first design was and still is the shit.  The 4th Gen iPod has returned to it OG design with the wheel, but it has been perfected (grey color, "click wheel" (the 1st and 2nd gen iPods had a "scroll wheel" with buttons right next to the wheel... the 3rd gen iPod retained the wheel, but placed the buttons on top, right underneath the screen... the current 4th gen iPod has a "click wheel" which functions as both as the buttons and the wheel)

I would buy the 20 gig 4th gen iPod if you have the cash.

good luck in the decision... let us know what you end up going with.

Do you think the actual iPod stores in the malls give the same discounts?

They do... you just gotta prove you a student.  Sometimes they place the order online and then you can pick up your order at the store.  I think they ask you for something more than your student ID... like a transcript or current class schedule... but they do offer the student discount at the retail Apple stores.

Okay no problem then. I can print them up a copy of my schedule no sweat.

I was checking out the Mac retail by my place and I think that's where I'll get it since Best Buys prices are fuckin' ridiculous. I'ma peep the Creative's too so I can see what's best for me.

cool... give the Apple store near you a call before you head down there and simply ask about the student discount and what you need to show them so you don't waste your time.  If you end up going with the iPod, make sure to cop it from the Apple store.  Best Buy prices are crazy and they probably won't honor the student discount.

do you use iTunes to listen and organize your music collection?

I was thinking about switching to iTunes after I purchase the iPod. Is iTunes good?
