Hello all! I'm now the proud owner of an iBook G4 and am now thinking of getting an iPod to go with it (when I bought my iBook I couldn't help try out the iPod that was on display and I thought it was great). Two important questions though. One is battery life, I heard somewhere that after 18 months the battery won't keep its charge for long. Has the problem been solved with the 3G iPod? Secondly, I'd like to use it as an external harddrive aswell. How do you access the iPod's drive? I assume to transfer music I'd go into iTunes or something. But what I really want to do is to be able (like I used to with external drives on my PC) is to be able to open it up (like I would a cd-rom) and drag files across into it. Is this possible? Many thanks, Matt.
