    Default More reason to get iPod

    Hope this rumor is true:

    The iPod firmware update will also add the ability to store digital photo on the device with the addition of an optional iPod-compatible photo card reader which will also be available at the Apple Store. Also look for Apple to improve playback performance, display contrast, backlighting and the battery meter. Sources also tell me Apple is adding a Music Quiz game
    A few more hours to go... and welcome iTunes for Windows users.... ^^

    The review mentioned about the photos being corrupted after transfer... this is a big concern to a user who wanted to buy the iPod for the player-cum-photo-storage solution.

    sound quality on ipod is good enough for me, maybe you can try it out yourself @ any AppleCentre.

    Don't think i would get the card reader add-on since i have a 2G ipod, better to top up $$$ and get powerbook

    .. and when you get your iPod, you may want to consider getting the Belkin Media Reader for iPod as well.

    agree with you that the sound quality is good enough. i'm just using the supplied earbuds. should be able to get better sound with better and more expensive ear/headphones.

    as for the new media reader, i think that's quite a bit to top up from a 3rd gen iPod + media reader to the cheapest 12" PB... prob work out to something like another S$1500?

    Sorry to hijack this thread. Another OT question for Mac owners.

    I had an ibook battery bought less than a year ago and it doesn't last for 10 minutes after recharging. Does the warranty cover replacement for this? Anyone knows what no. to call apple to ask about this?

    I've heard that there are shops in Sim Lim that can replace the cells in the battery. Does anyone knows which are the shops?

    Okay back to the topic. If the issue about corrupted files can be resolved, it will certainly give me a good reason to get an ipod.
