iPods can store up to 25,000 photos, or 15,000 songs, or 2,000 music videos, or numerous audio books. But first you have to download your song or photo files into the iPod. To do so, first download the files from the internet to your computer. Music, video and audio book files can be found at Apple.com and itunes.com. These are the main web sites for the iPod. After you have chosen and downloaded the files onto your computer, connect the iPod via the USB port and transfer the files from your computer to your iPod.
There are three main iPods out right now. The iPod Shuffle is the smallest unit and has no screen. It just plays random songs that you load onto it. It weighs only .78 of an ounce and is smaller than a pack of gum. It offers 12 hours of continuous, mobile playback and it re-charges in about 4 hours from the USB port on your computer.
The iPod is the largest unit. It can store up to 60 GB of files and has up to 20 hours of battery life. You can watch and listen to all of your favorite songs for a much longer time. It is controlled by the “Apple Click Wheel” which gives you access to your entire music, photo and video library with “one thumb control”. Control volume, browse, play, pause, rewind and fast-forward. You can also rate and organize your favorite files by creating playlists, and create and play photo slideshows. Click Wheel control is similar to the control on a cell phone.
The iPod Nano is very similar to the iPod. It comes with many of the same features, but its features are in a somewhat smaller size. It can store up to 4 GB of files and has up to 14 hours of battery life.
How would I make the iPod better? Why not add a cell phone and a small keyboard? But wait… isn’t that a “Blackberry”? That is another story. As with your computer, don’t forget to back up your iPod files.
