I hate the iTunes software. I am a whizz at computers, even spent quite a few years designing applications and websites, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to work iTunes - it is the most counter-intuitive program I have ever come across :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I think it's just like anything new, takes some getting used to.

Having bought a Mac recently, the first I've ever used, I am finding that with a lot of things. Now I am finally starting to fly around this machine, I loves it!

The biggest problem with iTunes is how easy it is to buy songs. :roll: Have to keep an eye on that.

I have a 30 GB ipod video... besides the fact it cost 500 bucks when i got (xmas pressie from the parents) i have had a few probs.... it sometimes glitches and just stops working..for maybe 5 mins sometimes more.. but other than that theres nothing wrong with it...

an ipod battery however only lasts about 2 years if you are lucky... then it starts to deteriorate.. and i hate iTunes with and undying passion...

in regards to nanos, if u are going to buy one you should alos get a metal carry case... or a simsilar firm material as they are so thin they break in half at the screen.

my bf's little sister got a nano and she has had nothing but trouble with it.. in the enmd they replaced it for her.

I want to know if anyone is using the Ipod Nano and the nike+? I was thinking if I was still running at christmas time I might ask hubby to buy me the sports kit. I have heard some good things on the cool runnings site. But would love to hear any reviews on this system anyone might have!

I was thinking briefly of buying it myself but then figured I don't really need it. Have since heard that they are not that great but the person didn't expand on why, can't even remember who told me so I am not much help really. :?

I have had... 3 kinds of iPods and never had a problem with one of them.

First I had an iPod nano 2gb. This one was great because you can get heaps of accerssories so you can run with it. Then for my birthday I got a 30GB video - good but was way too heavy to run with. Now I have a 1GB iPod shuffle, its TINY and just clips onto my clothes when I run.

I would recomend the iPod shuffle, they're around $100 but have good battery life and great to run with. Sound quality is good.

Everyone says iPods are crappy, but they seriously have gotten better in the past few years.

I want one of these! But I dont think they work with a iPod shuffle, only the nanos, which is dumb! But then you have to buy the nike shoes as well I think...

I had an iriver for ages, very hardy (i'm a dropper) and its battery life was great, was also very good when jumping around an stuff.
It went missing a few weeks ago though and I can't find it so I think I'm going to buy an ipod mini in a couple of weeks.
