Just got my adapter.  I can confirm it will run a digital signal to docks.  I am currently listening to my iPhone 5 > Wadia 170i.  I will test it with my pure i20 later...

Thanks Pelli - it only took us 23 pages, but we got there in the end. Look forward to your feedback on the Pure i-20.

That adapter is going to look slightly skewed on the new ipod nanos (the lightning dock is not centered).

 

*I am curious about the sound though and future measurements.

No bugs with the pure i20 either!

Dude, you may be a little late to the party.

Just remember that the scientists discounting the 'phenomenon' are the same scientists who didn't warn anyone about either of the Asian tsunami disasters.

I worked on code fixes for Y2K - we started in 1998 - trust me when I tell you that it wasnt ALL hype. Our code was written in a relatively modern 4GL language (less code to do the same job as earlier languages) and had been built around the distinct possibility that we would need 4-digit years, but the testing was the important part - the banks have millions billions of lines of COBOL that form the basis of our financial system here in Oz - a lot of it written back in the day when memory was expensive and 'saving' two digits was a big deal. A code monkey in 1975 had a lot more to worry about than the distant possibility that his code would still be running in 1999 - turns out he was wrong. 

 

FWIW. we also tested the code against this little gem:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem

 

Even at the consumer level. many of us are running 64-bit operating systems now, but 32-bit was still very common in commercial Unix boxes 12-13 years ago.

this seems like a nightmare- quote from wiki: There is no universal solution for the Year 2038 problem.

 

getting back on topic, has anyone seen the new ipod touch 5g in store- future shop, best buy, or apple?

i know they're shipping but am wishing i can get them in store instead of deal with the hassle of shipping companies

I tried the new ipod touch in store tonight.

 

I ab`d it with the headphone out of an iphone 4 (my ipod touch 4G was in my bag but I was too lazy to take it out)

 

My thoughts, I liked it very much, quite lush. I listened to Norah Jones on both devices. Nice bass and mids - my kinda thing.

Thus it's as promising as the measurements that lnks posted around here showed.

just read from cnet that the new ipod touch doesnt have a light sensor 

its "just too thin"
