Summary: I bought the iPod from Amazon and it was delivered about a week ago. I also bought the Apple Care Protection plan. The product seems to work fine except I am having minor but irksom problems 'navigating' using the buttons and wheel thing. I am using it for an Audible book which is supposed to start where you left off. Well, after 7 hours it decided to start at beginning again. I try fast forward and the thing goes to the next book.

Summary: Apple iPod is a total waist of money. No way is it worth more than 200 dollars. If you want a good mp3 player you can get one for less than 200. The Arthos 10gb studio jukebox holds 2x the standard capacity of the ipod 5 and costs 1/2 as much. Also the firewire is a pain in the behind its just more money you have to throw away. Get another brand that is designed for windows. The only thing i liked about it before i replaced it was the LCD with 6 lines that was hot.
Summary: I just recieved the iPod for windows for christmas, it was the worst gift that i recived this year, and it was supposed to be my favorite. It took days to get the hardware to work, and then the software wouldn't install. Using music match Jukebox 7.1 is stupid. You can't get it anywhere anymore and it wouldn't install from the disk. They should have makde the plug-in for 7.5 also. I just could not get it to work and it was a waste of time.
Summary: Think iPods are god's gift? Apparently you haven't heard about their problems with battery life and freezing up. My iPod freezes up about every 15 - 20 minutes and has to be manually reset all the time. You can almost set your watch by it. I've tried to have it fixed but Apple says that nothing is wrong with it...Think my problem is rare? Go to Apple's website under the discussion board to find out just how "rare" it is. Believe me, EVERYONE is having this problem.
