- Pedantic mode on -

Jetski was actually by Kawasaki (Yamaha = WaveRunner), though I guess by saying it was a Yam actually proves your argument in one way

- Pedantic mode off -

See you there!

Just picked up a battery one in a petrol station for £10.00 after looking at this thread. Only had a quick play with it but looks OK could be a bit close to Radio 2

Thats because it is. I'm no 'brand fan' but nothing else does it as good. Its exceptionally well made (stainless case) looks good and works almost flawlessly. It has the biggest storage capacity (at the time I bought mine), and with 400 cd's I never even took up 20% of its memory.... to my amazement Its one of the best things I ever bought ! To think I can take my entire collection with me wherever I go.. fantastic

Cod needs a ipod... its a natural fit cause of the rhyme. I am switching over to a ipod because they drive the market. Its a status symbol for the kids, that is one reason there are so many sold. They work well from what I am told and Apple has been extremely effective in their marketing strategy as well as their business plan. There are much more accessories made for the ipod so in my estimation it is the only one to buy. I don't have time to hunt down what I need for any other mp3 player so the decision is a slam dunk. I am converting all my music to mp3 files and getting rid of all my cds, they are obsolete essentially. In the very near future we will have all our favorite music, movies and photos as well as god knows what on these damn things, who knows where technology is going to end up? Why bother with cds or anything else when you can carry it all in a shirt pocket? I have 4000 songs in my catalog for the boat this summer, only 11,000 to go, plus the pictures and videos, amazing little device..
I will have the latest and greatest ipod on War Machine this year, the cd player is a dinosaur..

And why exactly would I need an IPOD when I can use MP3s on my phone or on my Ipaq? I can also use the internet and have numerous maps and charts along with sat nav and speed camera id - what more do you want?

It amazes me loads of people carry things like pdas and blackberries etc around with them but never use their MP3 features!!!

As to amount of data - ok maybe something with a hard disk in it stores a bit more but a 4gb SD card will hold about 800 tracks - enough to be getting on with!!!

And talking of Ipods and the sort of reasons I would never have one - a mate of mine has just asked how does he get all his songs off his IPOD to use elsewhere? He downloaded them through Itunes I think. It is a serious question - anyone know of any free software to do this?

Of course with a normal MP3 player you would just copy and paste the files over......

We've tried a few bits of software to do this over the years and failed with all of them. Their are bits of software out there that de regulate Itunes but they have a habit of screwing everything up. And if you've got 1000s of tracks to put on thats a lot of work to be mucking around with.

I have a seperate Hard Drive with backups of all my music in MP3 format. I've just checked it and its up to 37 GB of music now. Although my favourites only add up to some 2 GB. The other 35 GB is for a rainy day.

Does that mean my mate is stuck then? What happens if he wants to transfer to a computer or another IPOD? I honestly have never bothered with an Ipod for these very reasons.
