If you have an Ipod -please answer the questions below.
1. Where did you get the iPod?
BUY.COM
2. What kind of iPod did you get?
iPod Photo 30G
3. Was it a gift?
No
4. Do you use it for anything else besides music?
Photos and some notes, books on tape...
5. Do you like the iPod, if not why?
It's okay. But it scratches too easily! And mine freezes up when I'm playing it for long periods of time and I have to "reboot" it on a regular basis.
6. Do you like the software iTunes, if not why?
It's not bad, but it can be cumbersome to use. And it's calendar and contacts are useless if you do not use a mac or MS Outlook.
7. Why did you get the iPod?
To listen to music when I run or workout or pre-game warmup, and it's large storage capacity.
8. Do you think iPods are overated or trendy?
Yes they are like hot pants: trendy.
9. Do you like the new iPods?
I don't know which ones are the 'new' ones? They change every six months... (Hence the 'trendy' answer...)
10. Do you think they are too expensive for what they do?
Yes. Just like gas prices there is no other competition for them, so they can set the price for whatever they want.

1. Where did you get the iPod? best buy
2. What kind of iPod did you get? 20 gig/non video
3. Was it a gift? Everything is a gift to myself!!!
4. Do you use it for anything else besides music? mine doubles as a hard drive when i need to bring something to somebody and it wont fit on my phones memory card....
5. Do you like the iPod, if not why? i like it... and i dont... it has its pro's and con's
6. Do you like the software iTunes, if not why? not at all... it runs great on a mac... but it sucks for PC
7. Why did you get the iPod? wanted a portable mp3 player that also doubled as a hard drive
8. Do you think iPods are overated or trendy? yes...
9. Do you like the new iPods? dont really know... i still have mine from like a year and a half ago
10. Do you think they are to expensive for what they do? yes i do... i just bought a Dell PDA (does everything the iPod video does and a huge list of things it doesn't) and four 2 gig SD cards... and i still didn't spend as much as they were asking for a 60 gig iPod video... mind you theres no 60 gigs of space.. but i honestly dont need that much and if i do need more space... i can just buy more SD cards when i find them on sale again... and the bluetooth internet access on the PDA owns.

1. Where did you get the iPod? Apple store on North Michigan

2. What kind of iPod did you get? Newest 30 Gig Ipod Video

3. Was it a gift? Nope

4. Do you use it for anything else besides music? Yes, I installed linux on it, play games, watch movies, watch tv. etc.

5. Do you like the iPod, if not why? It's alright, I only got it because of the mass quantities of accys available for it.

6. Do you like the software iTunes, if not why? Hell no. I hate iTunes, one it makes you convert all your files to AAC which does prove to degrade sound quality. The interface is clunky and doesn't flow smoothly. I am a long time Winamp user so I just use the iPod plugin for it.

7. Why did you get the iPod? To function as a mp3 player when I go to the gym and to ride on my bike.

8. Do you think iPods are overated or trendy? Extremely overated. But I'll give it to Apple, they know how to design something to stick and be trendy.

9. Do you like the new iPods? It's the one I have, so I guess?

10. Do you think they are to expensive for what they do? Hell yes. Its just a hard drive and some software. 350 bucks is a lot of dough. I could have had a Archos 604.
