Well, I finally joined the iPod revolution. A nice, new 40giger. I'm somewhat surprised to see that when an iPod is plugged in, the music is visible, but not playable. I would have very much expected to be able to go to one of my other Macs and plug in the iPod and play the music from it, as if it were a musical source like the other macs themselves are. Is this simply not the case? Does being with one of the other macs require that i disconnect it from the local stereo and connect it to the iPod? Hmm... i'm still learning.
