I completely forgot I promised to write something about my iPod shuffle. So here you have it:
Many words have been said now about the shuffle by many users and I just can’t add much to that. It sounds all right, the electronic sounds of Sigur Rós tend to clip (can also be an encoding problem, but I don’t hear them that clear on my stereo) and switches slow between songs (about a second silence between each track which really is too ong). It might also give some audible feedback when pushing the buttons. Here are some interesting links about iPod shuffle.
- Apple Talk on Gathering of Tweakers (sorry, in Dutch)
- One of the first iPod shuffle covers and absolutely beautiful. The guy seems to got a lot of success by just putting some nice pics online :-)
- A funny mod, probably a weak pun on Apple’s comparison
Okay, so that is what they say and do with it. I had my own personal iPod experience. About a week after I had activated it, the left headphone started to make a cracking noise. That was a bit disappointing, but since I of course have warranty, I called Apple and they sent me a new pair without any question. Way to go, Apple! Excellent!
