    possible eBay scam?

    Hello everyone, I need opinions on what I should do. I just sold an ipod on ebay. the buyer is someone with 0 feedback whom first registered on ebay in 1998. However, he just recently changed his screenname on 6-20-2006, the date my auction ended. I looked at his mailing address (listed in...

    Worth keeping my 4G ipod?

    I still use my 4G 20gb ipod daily. the monochrome screen makes it an antique almost. I have a nano as well but don't like how the screen is hard to see indoors without having to turn the background light on. so basically I use the nano outdoors and the 4g indoors.

    Not enough love for the Sony D-NE330?

    I just picked up the D-NF430 from circuit city for $53.99 +tax. Very good deal for a player that pretty much does everything and runs for extended hours on 1AA battery. I use it with KSC-75 and like the sound. I am going to use it to replace my 1997 Sony DT405 (14mw/channel) which I still...

    SquareTrade Warranty

    I just bought a 3 year warranty via SquareTrade on a new iRiver U10 that I purchased off an ebay seller. It was only $9.99 for 3 years coverage which they state they will refund you the complete purchase price if anything breaks. Has anyone tried using this SquareTrade warranty before? Is it...

    AAC to MP3

    other programs besides itunes are able to play AAC. the simplest and one of the best is foobar2000. dbPowerAMP can mass convert between AAC and MP3.

    Anyone Still Rockin' With a 1st Gen Ipod?

    the great thing about 1G/2G models is you can get replacement batteries for them really cheap (~$15). They are also the easiest models to replace batteries. I had a 1G 5GB that ran for 16+ hours on a 1600maH battery. I plan to get a 2200maH battery for my 2G 10GB that will likely extend playing...

    ipod battery life suddenly down

    it's well worth a try to take it back to the store. It probably depends on the manager and the stock they have but I my friend's coworker got her 3G ipod replaced recently due to battery problem with a new monochrome 4G ipod that they still had in stock. The warranty period had passed already...

    wait, they collected $400 and went out and bought a 20gb iPod Color which retails for $299 (w/ tax may ~330), and who knows might even have been on discount cause of the 5G release? Haha,

    Sony has a new player coming out also!!!/New Sony HDD Walkman Released; E600 Released

    this sony looks pretty good to me actually. I like the OLED embracement that sony has going on with their new products. The buttons stand out though. If they had made the buttons a touch interface with that OLED, it would be like navigating a giant blue piece of candy.

    I've used the iRiver H320 to record. it has very good mic quality for recording classroom lectures. I could be sitting in the back or the front and the mic is sensitive enough to record the speaker pretty well. the internal mic is much better than the zen micro's mic which is pretty weak. The...

    Koss KSC7

    lol, if you looked at the original date of post, I asked this question back in 2003. back then KSC-35s were going for $100 on ebay, the KSC-75 did not exist, and the KSC-50 had bad fit for most people. This is a moot subject now that the KSC-75 is out and the KSC-35 is back on sale.

    E4c and iPod TREBLE sinergy

    I've browsed through a few of the posts on that thread and there seems to be reports that the line-out or through the dock doesnt have the problem. the distortion comes from Apple modifying the headphone-out jack to be able to output video signal to the television. Also supposedly using...

    E4c and iPod TREBLE sinergy

    Hi, are you using a 4G photo or color model? It has been reported that those models distort in high frequencies because Apple redesigned the headphone jack to be able to output photos to the TV (through special adapter). Here is a thread regarding the problem.
