    I have a confession to make

    I swore I'd never do it. But it happened: I bought (and love) my first Apple product. I saved up for a long time, and I am now an iPhone owner. I admit that it is the most fun AND useful toy I've ever had. I thought I should let everyone know since I've always expressed my strong dislike for Apple on this forum at every opportunity.

    Anyone else wanna confess?


    P.S. I still hate Quicktime, iTunes, the operating system, and the way that iPods work in terms of file transfer.

    I dropped my old Zen mp3 player in the toilet. Now I have a Sandisk. It's pretty cool.
    Everyone else in this house has an ipod and they have so much stress with 'syncing' it. With one click, you can erase the whole thing. They can't get (free) videos and stuff.
    I miss my Zen though.
    Here's a confession: I'm addicted to Myspace.

    iPhones rule. I've had one since July 4th.

    Still haven't upgraded to 1.1.3 (on 1.1.1) because I like my third party apps. We'll see what happens in Feb when they release the SDKs

    there we go, just right. keep walking...

    I grudgingly just bought my first new Apple Ipod. Only because it had 80 gb for under $250. I hate itunes, though.

    I have never owned an mp3 player. I was also one of the last people I know to give in to CDs.

    Wendy, I am addicted to myspace, too. But it comes and goes. Sometimes I'm always checking in, and then sometimes I just stop for a while.
    So patience... is nothing...

    I absolutely agree that iTunes sucks. I wish I could use the management software of choice for my phone, but, alas, they don't let you turn on disk mode for iPhones so I can't just upload whatever I want whereever I want.

    there we go, just right. keep walking...

    I love my iPod and I love iTunes.
    Alright
    Tap the lightpole and we'll be jammin all night
    And ain't nobody callin' the cops
    'Cause everybody's here freakin', if they're older they're doin the rock
    And every block from all around
    Comes runnin' to the park when they hear the sound
    And soon the word's spreadin' through our part of town
    "Yo, 40 Park y'all, Jam-On's gettin down"
    Yeah...

    just replaced my ipod as a bag got taken from my car with about $1500 worth of my stuff (Camera,ipod,Nintendo Ds & 9 games,GPS..more..) itunes feels a bit monolithic but workable.. love my ipod and the operating system!

    Not quite simple. You have to rip the DVD, then re-encode it into something the iPod can play.

    I installed osx on my hp compaq laptop the other day, that was kind fun, worked perfectly too apart from the battery charging, cheapest macbook I've ever seen!

    Look up osx86 if you're interested.

    That gives you the whole process using free software. I forget which encoder I used because I'm on campus right now. I've only had an iphone for about a month, so I don't know which encoder is better, but hopefully that tutorial will give you a solution.

    damn ether sorry bout that, thats brutal.

    i was lucky...my best friend loves me, i always get her leftovers. when wanted a 80gb ipod i got a brand new Nano. i love the sound quality, i have to admit its super! I am not the biggest fan of itunes and sincing but i deal.

    i started off with the dell jukebox,still have it, in fact have two now that best friend didn't want hers, but lost my charger. i dug it more, but the sound....makes the difference in the Ipod.

    LOL...

    :: pointing :: hooked on Pogo!

    I love how a bunch of people hoard their tokies and use them as a status symbol. Can you imagine how much time someone with 25 million tokies has spent on Pogo? :: shiver ::

    Literati is one of the Yahoo games. It's basically Scrabble with a few twists.


    Forgive me Father, for I have sinned:
    I'm also addicted to Starbucks, BK Mocha Joe, Legos, the song Strawberry Letter #23, drinking, exercising, making lists, Limewire, sexwithmyguy, sea salt, socializing, checking my Myspace page and the pages of my friends repeatedly, making lists, talking about myself, writing poems and short stories, make-up, reading, dancing, crankcalling, and making lists.

    I feel better.
