It’s true, I’ve taken the plunge. After about 12 months trying to justify buying one – & Amazon making me wait a further 3 painfully long weeks for delivery – I now have it by my side. I saved £30 by using Amazon (it was only £270) on the 40GB model.
There’s been some teething problems: iPod’s can only be linked to one computer. I had originally installed it on my work PC, then when hooking it up at home it went through the same process & wiped the iPod clean of the 1500 songs I had put on it that day.
Then today, after adding more on at work again I found I couldn’t sync it at home at all, nor could I extract the MP3’s manually. Luckily I found SharePod, a very handy & simple application which solved all my problems.
Now we’re both getting on & I think we’ll have a wonderful future together. I really do like having all my music together like this. Using the shuffle mode is forcing me to listen to some songs that I haven’t heard for ages & now I’m gradually appreciating them all over again.
