Ah, I see.  Essentially it's a pyramid scheme.  I understand now. 

Ok, I'll see who I can get interested in this and if I go ahead, I'll use your link.

So, I got this awesome 40GB iPod last week for Christmas. And it's great, I love it. Really. Honest. But, for the past week, I've been loading CD after CD after CD into my PC and importing tracks, and - well, goddamn it, I'm tired of doing this ****!! This sucks.

There are websites that will charge you like 50 bucks plus shipping - you mail them your CD's, they rip them all and load them onto your IPOD and mail it all back to you.

Speaking of ipods, I see Apple has a new version, the ipod "shuffle", and man is it wee.

Getting close to finally having all of my main CD's on the iPod.  I'm at 8 GB with lots or room for more.  My hard drive can't take a lot more though...maybe 5 more Gigs

What I have left is about 100 Pearl Jam concerts as well as my wife's stuff which I'll probably add on there too because I'm not sure I can add 5 gigs more of stuff I want

LOL.

I'm at about 32 GB now, and have barely touched my collection. Of course, I'm encoding at 256 instead of the recommended 128, but that's just me. It just sounds better to me, especially if I have it hooked up to me car or home stereo. 128 just doesn't cut it when you're playing it on anything outside of the earphones. Or earPods or whatever.

Also, I picked up this little Altec Lansing portable speaker system for like $150 in Best Buy, and this thing kicks serious ass. Four small little 1" speakers shouldn't sound this good.

You do know that you can erase them off your hard drive once they are in your iPod, right? Just make sure the iPod isn't connected to your pc and clear them from your library in iTunes. It should ask you if you want to permanently delete them from your hard drive, click yes.

Also IMPORTANT!!! Make sure you don't have your preferences setup to automatically update your iPod every time it's connected, otherwise it will erase all your tracks next you connect to your computer.

I've read enough stories of tons of songs being wiped out to not resort to manual mode yet :)

Episode 3 iPod Case at SWShop.com

Anyone going to pick up this little item for their iPod?

For $30, I think I'll pass.  Besides, I like my black cushioned sport case a bit better anyway.  ;)

I think I'm gonna have to buy one of those... I've been looking for an iPod case that I like, and the ones we have at work are about $30 anyway.

Yeah, I'm a sucker... so what?

An Update...

My iPod is now well over a year old and I can't remember how I ever got along without it.  It still amazes me that I can carry my entire 250+ CD collection around with me where ever I go! :)

As a result of me using my iPod pretty much daily for a year, my wife is now considering picking up her own iPod to use while walking/working/travelling/etc.  She's leaning towards the newest guy in the Apple family... iPod Nano. 

Anyone have any reviews on the iPod Nano?

I'm considering getting one of those new iPod Nanos... even though I have a Rio MP3 Player that serves me well, I like the smallness of the Nano. It holds a lot of songs for it's size too.
