A rotten apple? Highly improbable. Apple has reported sales of more than 2 million iPods in the last quarter – a 500% increase over the comparable period of 2003! So what is all the frenzy about? I myself am quite the Apple enthusiast and will forever blame my parents for not naming me iTom...

I bought my iPod almost 2 years ago, it's a 4th generation with a monochrome screen and in general it is a good portable music player, although it is flawed. My original opinion was that it was the most hyped thing on the market so it must be the best. However, after using it for a while I soon...

"GREAT LITTLE JEWEL": that's how I would define my i-pod…just a present to myself. Well, it is easy to understand the reason why I chose to buy it: smart, 20 Gb memory (so that I can listen up to 5.000 songs, 3 days long non-stop music, without ever listening to the same song twice), no need of...

Product Information : Apple iPod M9282FE/A 20 GB 4th Generation

Manufacturer's product description

The original iPod changed the way you listen to music by putting thousands of songs in your pocket. Now it changes the way you see your music, with a crisp color screen. Browse playlists via vivid menus, thumb through album cover art, even play games and view calendars in color. Or sync photos and view them in color, anywhere. Your personal, portable entertainment library, iPod looks as good as it sounds. Or highlight photos. iPod displays 25 full-color thumbnails at a time, and you can scroll through them the same way you scroll through song titles. When you see a photo you'd like displayed all by its lonesome, just click the center button and voila. No one will have to say "cheese" as long as you have iPod around. Whether you're listening to tunes or checking out photos, you're sure to be all smiles. iPod lets you play your music for up to 15 hours on a single battery charge. Imagine: you could fly from New York to Paris and still have hours of listening time left as you stroll the Champs Elysees. While you're on the move, iPod keeps you aware of its charge level, and when it's time, iPod's quick to recharge. Plug it into your computer or a handy wall socket and you can fast-charge iPod in as little as two hours. As for the CDs you already own, iTunes makes it easy to transfer your favorite songs and albums. Just pop a CD into your Mac or PC and click the Import button. You can import music in a variety of formats, such as MP3 or AAC, and at whatever quality level you'd prefer. And with USB 2.0 and FireWire support, you can transfer the music from an entire CD to iPod in just 5 seconds or less. The Apple Click Wheel has been so well received on iPod mini that it has been incorporated into the entire iPod family. The touch-sensitive Click Wheel brings the easy-to-use navigation interface together with mechanical buttons for tactile feedback. You can now scroll with the touch wheel, click the symbols like buttons, and quickly navigate your entire music library without ever lifting your thumb.
