Tera's "review" was fine with me and gave me a few pointers. I ordered the 40 gig iPod photo. I didn't know it would import photos from a card reader. That's a nice touch if it works.
Check the AV cable in the photo. That doesn't seem to be the same that came with my iBook. The video "out" quality is poor on the iBook which explains why the iPod has s-video out on the dock. I'd like to know if there's much difference in quality between the two. Has anyone tested the battery life yet?
Oh, one more thing for all the grumblers... where's your web site and examples of your reviews of Mac products? Show us the goods, dudes. It's a web log, for crying out loud.
yup ... i thought i lost my network connection or something!bpd115 said:Not to mention the site is SLOOOOOOOOOW
But that's pretty much all it's supposed to be, isn't it?nagromme said:MacBytes itself could be criticized for just collecting links to other sites
Exactly--and I think MacBytes is a great ideaiMeowbot said:But that's pretty much all it's supposed to be, isn't it?
I think the card reader the manual is referring to is the Belkin Digital Camera Link ...mfeldman said:I tried loading images direct from a card reader and could not get them to show up on ipod photo. The instructions vary from the enclosed booklet and the user manual on the CD but it looks like it should work.
Anyone else able to get images into ipod photo direct from a card reader? I cannot figure that one out.

BTW - I'd be happy to run a "guest writer" piece from Peyote, or Wiglet Bill, Foster, PM666, et al. That'd be interesting, eh? First come, first served...
FYI -- iPod Photo's been playing now for about 13 hours and still shows battery life... that's a welcome improvement I'll take.
"THINK TWICE?" Yeeesh, hits just went up again. Thanx!
Strange. I read the same article and it didn't say anything like that at all. Maybe you were reading something on another site... I'm having difficulty finding anything troubling with... "ipod photo packs a few surprises."Peyote said:This person's articles have time after time had misleading headlines to increase readership, and articles filled with info most mac users already know.
What...she didn't know that iTunes imports the photos into the new iPod Photo? Did she read anything about them before she bought one? I don't plan on buying one, and I knew THAT much...some surprise.
What? Another ipod review? How revolting! And shame on her for pointing out some things about the iPod we are SUPPOSED to know (but do not). How does she know that? You are right. The title is soooooo deceptive it even fooled you!Peyote said:This article is just another review.
Another disappointment from Mac360. MayBytes needs to verify that her article titles match her articles, or stop linking to them. I'm fine with having a review up there...but I can't stand underhanded tricks like a deceptive article title, and I think MacBytes is above that.
