Some people want to use the iPod to share music between multiple computers. You can, but it's not easy. Syncing to iTunes is possible with only one machine. But there is an unattractive alternative. We were able to copy MP3 files from the iPod to a second computer's hard drive in Windows by turning on "View hidden files and folders" and browsing the iPod's internal directories in My Computer until we found the music. Mac users can do the same thing if they install ResEdit. However, when we reconnected the iPod to the primary machine, the device wouldn't mount as a drive until we reset it.
You're getting 5GB more for the same price that you would have paid for the 15GB--isn't that a good thing?
Ouch! Didn't know that. And I guess the only way to charge these things up is by hooking it up to your computer? Or is there a separate AC (or DC) adapter that's available?
(Pre-emptive edit: Looks like there are extended batteries and car adapters available for the iPods: http://www.apple.com/ipod/accessories.html )
Double ouch! Of course, if your battery dies two years from now, you could spend the hundred bucks on a replacement, or you could take that hundred bucks and buy a fifth-or-sixth-generation iPod instead. I'd probably rather do that than buy a new battery for an outdated model.replace!
I also have faith that we'll get a "living" version of the Dagobah Spirit Ben to cover my plastic cloak/hood down Ben needs, so that may be helping improve my opinion on the VOTC one.
Forgive my ignorance, but I've got a question for you guys...
I've been vocal in my desire to get an Non-Spirit Ben figure, but I may already have one, for it seems that Spirit Ben Kenobi (Dagobah) is... a kitbashed/rehash.
While goofing around with Ben last night, I discovered that the date stamp on his foot reads "2000", and to top it off he has a little tiny hole in his belt just like the PotJ Ben does. After comparing for a bit, I feel I can sefely say that Spirit Ben's legs, lower body, and torso are all identical to the PotJ version!
I think that his head may be recycled from the old Lays Spirit Obi-Wan as well. As near as I can tell, only the arms and cloak are new... but that may be only because we havn't figured out where they came from yet.
