Well, this officially settles it: we are all officially in 1984, as our iPod Shuffles--and conceivably other iPods--have been bugged from the get-go.

:eek:

You only just noticed it because it only just came out. ;)

I did very much enjoy the novel, although I can't comment on the film yet.

Can you do the update without wiping everything from your iPod? I don't keep everything in iTunes as a backup to my iPod.

Yes, it won't erase your iPod.

I'd love an update that gives my original Photo the stopwatch etc., but at the end of the day my iPod still does what I ask of it, so I can live without the extras if I must.

I think I'll have to--the new iPods use a different screen size, so back-porting those features isn't one-click simple.

Well how about that. I bought my iPod a few days ago and installed the software from the supplied cd. I downloaded this apparent latest update from the Apple site (didn't check software update) and when I went to install it, it said my iPod software is already up to date :eek: I checked software update and indeed I already had it on the cd supplied. So I didn't need it. Guess that makes sense it is 17/11/05 update after all.

One of the nice things about a product being this popular is that it moves very quickly from assembly line to stores and into customers' hands. So when there's a firmware update, it can propagate through the channels extremely rapidly.

Question...keep old updaters?

Question: Are each of the updaters fully-contained?

That is, if I download this latest version, do I need to keep prior versions for
any reason?

Thanks,
Frank

Still nothing to allow nested folders...What's the freaking point of adding it to iTunes to clean things up if you still have to wade through tons of playlists on your iPod. Hello! Apple? Anyone awake in there? :(
