Yesterday I finally tried to use my new Ipod. (Other things on my "to do" list for Sunday that I didn't get to cross off: clean out closets; hang curtains; assemble wool sweaters knitted last winter; garden and go to gym.) Since both the Raider game and Chargers game were blow-outs, little attention was required, and I was able to fiddle with my lap top and Ipod. I managed to download a few albums, a couple of audible books, and I set up an I-tunes account. Lots more fiddling is required, but hey, it's a start!

Have fun with it. I'm not yet on board with the ipod thing, but my wife and son spend lots of time downloading and listening. It must be catching, because even my 6-year-old daughter can't go to sleep unless she has mom's ipod to listen to.

I've spent so much time with my ipod that I've started to fear for my hearing. Hence, this for the last few days and into the week, I've instituted a no-headphone rule.

Dan - I will say in my limited experience so far, that it does have really nice sound quality . . .

ffleur - I did hear some where that they were blaming excessive earphone use for some hearing problems . . .

Good luck with your iPod Diane. I'm still doing a 50-50 mix of spinning vinyl and cd but I'm planning to go iPod to save space. I also have a slight dvd space problem as well..... wayyy too many. I'm ready for a moviepod.

ffleur - you need to get a Bose docking station. Okay, you can get any docking station, but Bose is the best one!

I wear headphones 40 hours a week for work, so I try to listen to music through speakers when I'm off-duty. My ears are pretty over-worked as it is.

Congrats, Diane. Pretty intuitive, isn't it? I downloaded a music video and the picture quality is incredible.

Diane - I use my iPod/Bose docking station combination as my home stereo now. The sound is incredible. The Bose unit was $300 and well worth every penny, but there are certainly other options.
