iPod mania

Its exactly been three weeks I have owned this 80gb raw entertainment; an iPod Black Classic. If you have been a regular reader of this blog and have read the older posts: Out of dilemma and iWars, you might be awestuck what motivated me to own it? Well, the radio stations are no more interesting to listen, unlike a few years ago. Whenever, I tune into any radio station, I'm forced to listen the most bugging or annoying song: Jhoom baraabar jhoom or E murdon ka shaher! How awful would it be to listen to 'E murdon ka shehar' on a monday morning while you are stuck up in a sickening jam? Moreover, the RJ's have lost the creativity to hold on listeners for a long time. Over 9 Radio Stations so far, most of us keep changing the channels very often.

Ever since, I've been loading it songs, photographs, movies(is a must) from the PC. The day I bought it, my computer had conked off past a month or so! Got the SMNP replaced with a new one. Aaaaaaargh, had forgotten Windows XP admin password and had to format the C:\ drive, thus losing much data of which no backup was taken :(

Having installed iTunes 7.4 and happily transferred songs upto 2gb. Even then, 72 gb space was free. Hence, I decided to transfer few movies. How can I forget the HP series? I tried transferring using Real Player and iTunes. Both didn't work. A friend suggested a link. When I downloaded and converted the movie file; the movie of length of upto 5 minutes was converted as it was a trial version :(Later, Sudipta, who had been owning 30gb iPod past few months gave me few links out of which many were trial versions and finally, we managed to download the converter which could convert movie of any length :D Thanks, da!

I, finally, bid an adieu to my old Transcend mp3 player. Now with my iPod, I can enjoy a movie everyday while travelling in the bus. With a video iPod, who cares a radio?

PS: Buying iPod isn't a waste when you have a passion for music. Instead, its a 80gb asset. Yet to store Pirates of Caribbean :D
