Hey, what's that thing that looks like a cradle (between the earbuds and earbud covers) in that one pic?

P.S. I take it Fedex got their sh_t together.

P.S. I take it Fedex got their sh_t together.I'm psyched.

It's a dock adapter... remember, this new iPod is thinner than the old ones, and so needs a little help if it's going to fit into any sort of old dock. (Which I don't have one of anyway, so this adapter's just going back into the box, along with the earbuds.)

And they only got their act together after I browbeat them severely. ;)

going from a nano to the nano's father in allYeah, it's gonna take a while for all 5125 songs to synch to it... and I still haven't imported any videos into my Videos yet, but I have ripped Blade Runner and Sin City into what I *believe* are iPod-compatible formats.

Will post more when I have it.

Thanks again and i believe that that Fed-Ex lady was lying.The case is pretty much just two pieces of neoprene (I think) sewed together... light grey on the outside, white on the inside, with the word "iPod" embossed at the top. Nothing special, and certainly not something I will use long-term... but I'm glad to have it. Wish the nano had come with something similar.

This is one of those instances where even though a new product was released the product released before is still awesome. I just ordered a black 30 gig, but yet i still/will covet those sweet little non-hd nanos.

All this talk of the nano screen scartching issue has got me a little worried, i kept my 3rd gen is such good condition even without a case(i couldn't stand having it in a case my iskin screen cover turned an ugly yellow, and the iskin did not slide in my jeans pocket, it required having to restuff my turned inside out pockets back in.) I'm concerned that I'm gonna have to buy some big ugly bulky case to keep this thing nice. Anyone think i can get away with one of those plastic static screen protectors?(p.s. did anyone else have the ability to add the screen protectors onto your order, but not been able to find them on the site?) I won't mind the metal polish scratching a bit or even the black finish i just don't want that beautiful screen to scratch!

Interesting that Bono's picture is on the box itself-- a consolation prize for having the U2 iPod discontinued, perhaps?

Thanks for the pictures, by the way!

The Gorillaz album art is shown as well on the box which is funny considering they had nothing to do with Apple specifically before. I think it's cool though, I hope Apple continues to partner with other groups/bands other than (or in addition if they must) U2. There are a ton that deserve it, would be awesome to randomly print them on boxes and stuff.

It'd be a fun way to get different artists noticed and something fun for people to share w/ each other, "What song did your iPod come w/?" "Oh this totally random choral group, you?"

It would be really cool if it came pre-loaded with an entire album. Probably a mix album, something like the iTunes Music Sampler that was available when you first logged into the iTMS and created a new user account. I have since purchased three full albums off of that sampler because I liked the bands so much....probably would have not done so had I not heard them.

Even if we all got the same album, or even the same couple of songs, it would be a really cool way to promote some underexposed bands and get their music out there.

therefore;

It wasn't meant to be directed solely at you, and not just people from this thread. There has been a lot of spelling corrections going on lately, which although I completely agree with, especially with a global spell-checker there is hardly and excuse, but still don't find to be that large of a problem for an online forum.

Anyway, no harm was meant to you, hopefully none taken, it was just an observation.

I noticed at the store that the Nano has this lock feature on it, a screen-lock that looks like oldschool turn-style safes have. I asked a salesperson there if they knew if that was coming down the line through firmware but they were ridiculously uninformed. Anyone know about that? or a way to get it?

I find the opposite. I find the new clickwheel to be a bit awkward because of it's size. My thumb has problems going in even circles, I always go over the edge. I think it's just because I'm so used to the old clickwheel though. I'm sure I'll get used to it soon.

Oh that video looks nice! I does the black appear to scratch easily like the nano?

BTW: I dont know why but it looks like you have very nice hands/fingers. (?:confused: :cool: )

From the reports, and from my comparisons of this iPod to my Nano I had, I'd say definitely.

Thanks for the compliment, that's nice of you to say.

The new ipod really looks even better in person.
I am just scared to take the plastic cover off.
A lot of people on this board got some skins for theirs, but it's impossible for me to get one straight away. Did I mention i live in Luxembourg, Europe.
What did you guys do to prevent yours from scratching?
I am definately not going to use the white pouch that was included, the hairline scratches seem to come from this "unprotective" case. (altough it feels really soft??)

This new scratch feature really was not nessecary.Now if I was a DJ …;)

For what it's worth - I'm using my black 30 gig with no shield or skin or anything, just carrying it around in the case Apple provided.

I'm being pretty cautious with it even when the iPod is in the case, but I have no scratches at all so far - hairline or otherwise.

I was really impressed by the small formfactor as well. It seems like its slightly thinner than the 20 GB. And i'ts got twice the storage of my ibook.

Why did u get a 3G and a 5G?

Well I got my 3G about 2 years ago. I have sold it to my girlfriends younger brother but I haven't given it to him yet. ( I could not be ipodless while waiting for the new one to arrive…)
I got my 5G yesterday and it IS a lot nicer than the old one. That's why.

Or did I spell something wrong that could mislead to the idea that I got both of ipods the same day. Well then, sorry english is my fourth language, and I will try to avoid such mistakes in the future.:)

Here's my 30Gig (with photos next to 20gig colour) plus universal dock with Apple remote - bit let down by the remote though.

I don't know if anybody has said anything about this yet- but that looks like the final episode of "Sex and the City" on your iPod! I just ordered mine so maybe it's time to get "Sex and the City" DVD's and Quicktime Pro for Christmas as well! :D

I wouldnt recommend buying QT Pro. I have found great, free, and quicker solutions for ripping DVD's and converting them to iPod format. Just go to Versiontracker.com and type in Handbrake for dvd ripping and then iSquint for conversion. Works like a charm and is much quicker than QT Pro

Thanks for the MUCH cheaper solution! My iPod has already shipped out from China :), but now I have to wait until Christmas to open it! :( O well, Chirstmas will be here before I know it! :D

No problem, I too am waiting until December to get mine going but I am pre-ripping and converting them for them to be ready when I get it.

Yeah I'm doing the same thing with all my stuff. It sure is taking awhile to convert these to iTunes format. More than 1 hour for two "Sex and the City" episodes. Wonder why it's so slow? :confused:

Well its pretty snappy compared to QT Pro, but it could be the eMac. Not really sure, considering 1.5 isnt much better than 1.25. But I have 2GB of Ram and a Superdrive. Who knows, but its SUPER fast compared to QT and free to boot. Just be patient :D

I'm not sure either, but maybe the extra RAM is helping the speed on yours. All I know is that it takes a lot longer for movies. It's been 2 hours so far and it's still far from done. I'm gonna have to leave my eMac on all night. I won't be watching a lot of movies on my iPod anyway, but it never hurts to try.

The Wollongong AppleCentre has a big stock of 5G's now that customs have figured out what happened to their computers at the Sydney docks and they finally have one on display for us to mess about with.

The screen is incredible, just so amazingly good. They had a few of those Pixar shorts on there and it was so easy to watch, very crisp and clear and it made the screen seem bigger cause the picture quality was so good.

I so hope I get one for Christmas now, I was feeling fairly comfortable with the prospect of a nano but this new iPod just leaves the others in the dust.

Finally Apple has given me something to upgrade to from my 3G 15GB - love it as I do, this new one is the best I've seen.

It's my birthday on Monday so there's an outside chance but Christmas is looming very highly on the radar. Just hope my folks are feeling generous cause there's no way in hell I could afford it on my own.

Mind you I don't know when we'll be having Christmas this year, Dad's going to be away (par for the course, in his line of work Christmas is just another day, we're used to it) I'll be working down here where I live, one of my sister's will be working back in my home town so it looks like Christmas at my folk's house will be my Mum, one of my sisters and my Grandparents. Should be interesting to say the least. Just hoping there's a small square box under the tree with my name on it and $450 worth of iPod on the inside. Not likely but I think I've been suitably immature in the amount of pressure I've put on "those with the cash to buy me cool Christmas pressies" to maybe influence their decisions.

I also own a 20g 4gen (not color) that i keep at work docked to demo one of our sound systems (i work at an electronics store) because the battery is dead so it constantly has to be connected to a power source... sorry no pics to compare. The skins are the same thing that the ScreensavRz are made of from Radtech.us
