    Maybe the "hidden" recording feature is not that at all. Maybe they are experimenting with a voice-activated iPod. The input is just for a brief command -like "play", "stop?, etc., or the name of the song or artist. It's just a thought, but I think it would be a cool feature, especially since I use my iPod the most in my car, where looking down at the screen for selecting can be dangerous on the interstate.

    Thoughts?

    Regards,
    Gus

    i personally would love recording on an ipod. So many people i know with mini discs record with them fairly good quality for something thats not meant for recording specifically. it would be great for a million reasons and fun for a million more. though the voice activated would be cool. i know that in the car i have a hard time using my ipod....i picked up an older one for cheap recently :)

    as cool as voice activation would be, i wouldn't be getting your hopes up.

    recording is on the cards. voice activation is a pipe dream, IMHO

    voice commands is impratical imo. so many lyrics would be bound to interfere. stop, play, pause, back, forward, ect ect are all over songs.

    Well, I've got an old one but it shouldn't be different..

    Hold down the menu and play/pause button until the iPod resets, while it is starting up again hold down the back select button and the next button, this should get you into the list.

    I switched back!

    Well, I once owned a 5GB iPod, and I sold it for a 20GB Archos Jukebox Studio because I desperately needed recording (fed up with MiniDisk).

    The Archos is a PITA when it comes to design or GUI, but does its job, and it's cheap. I was waiting for a rec iPod since the original came out...
