    Graduate studies in CANADA or USA?

    I see you guys are talking about Farenheit 9/11. Don't you mean Bowling for Columbine? That was about "gun culture", while the former was about Bush and the Iraq war.

    I cant stand mp3!

    In the summer, because I was bored and curious, I performed tons of blind AB tests on high end equipment regarding lossy vs. lossless, mp3 vs. aac, 320kbps vs. 256kbps, vbr vs. cbr, cd's burned at 4x vs. 1x, etc, and came up with interesting results. It's important to note that before I...

    Is there any point to minidisc?

    I've been an MD user and I'm currently an iPod user. These are pretty much the only advantages to MD: - Most recorders/players have excellent battery life - Great for recording meetings and live shows Now here's the disadvantages: - ATRAC3 Compression. Even if you use their highest...

    opinion on nirvana?

    Nirvana was overhyped trash. The only reason why people are gushing over the band today is simply nostalgia.

    4G iPod screen contrast

    The contrast on the iPod is directly related to the type of screen and the temperature of the unit. When the iPod becomes hot from extensive disk use or warm climates, the contrast will appear darker than normal (and vice versa). So in an air conditioned room, 60% contrast might look great, but...

    bitrate and battery life

    Yeah... I don't get that either. I'm pretty sure it just depends on file size. Although I know that certain formats require more processing power than others. i.e., on the iPod, Apple Lossless takes more power than AAC.

    New 4G Ipod Missing the Checkmark?

    Many people griped about the checkmark issue with the 3G's because you could not operate it in the dock if it was connected to a PC. The only thing you could do was unplug it from your computer. So Apple responded and removed the "Ok To Disconnect" screen from the 4G iPod.

    This isn't a fair test. Obviously the lossless files would be superior. You want to compare apples and oranges, rather than two different apples.

    where's the hype about the Karma2?

    I saw pics of the new Chroma somewhere. It had a color screen and a different colored housing. I don't remember where I got the pics though.

    4th Generation Ipod audio quality???

    Specs really don't tell you much about audio quality. I haven't heard anyone complaining about the sound quality of the 4G and I doubt Apple changed any of the hardware directly relating to the sound. However, if you want to know for sure, you should either listen to both the 3G and 4G yourself...

    stunning new picture of the 4th gen ipod...

    The 4G 20GB is 1mm thinner than the 3G 20GB. And the 4G 40GB is 1mm thinner than the 4G 40GB. I have seen some photos on the web recently that have a 4G 20GB and a 3G 40GB side by side showing the thickness. Then they state that the new iPod is so much thinner! I would just like to point out...
