[access-uk] Re: iPod shuffle ready to go?

No one forces anyone to steal it is always a choice and an indication of
one's character.

device, intended to have its contents changed on a daily basis rather than
holding your entire music collection.  It's early days still with these
products, but the signs are encouraging.

> Whilst iPod or iPod mini can come up as an external drive the actual way
it stores and organises it's data is quite another bucket of freshly mixed
mud since it is not human friendly.  For this bit you need iTunes or Anapod
to help you do the organisation for you.

cannot deny the ease of use in that it more or less automates the process of
feeding stuff in to synchronising with the iPod.  Anapod can deal with the
iPod but the experience is not so slick.

use and IPod without any problems.  I looked at one of the click wheel
models and think it would be next to impossible to do.

without a screen, with a wheel with fixed functions, it seems perfect. Plus,
it's only £99.99 for a 1Gb version.  Shame the accessories are so bleeding
expensive.

> The problem with Ipods isn't really the hardware however.  It's the ITunes
software that can cause you the most trouble.  A lot of people have reported
that it is a swine with screen-readers.  In fact, it is that bad that it
won't even work with Apples new screen-reader they are bundling with the
next release of there operating system.
>
> There is however a solution, Anapod explorer from red chair software. This
now supports the IPod shuffle and gives access to the shuffle like most
other devices in Windows Explorer.
