The Going Again Č I remember the first time that I had ever used an iPod. I was in a different world as I lived in the small hours of the early morning on a subways trip. You wouldn’t know anything about an iPod. It was all in binary. “That’s good, that’s good…” That was it. I didn’t hear a thing. Bla, bla, bla. “That’s good…”then it stopped. I don’t know if it was because the battery had no power or something but I honestly don’t know why or how that stopped.
I ran all night and thought “what if I just worked on my iPod all night?” Then I remembered that I still had the real thing. So I went ahead and did.
So you’ve just received your iPod Nano (your actual iPod), and you’re ready to go. There are some things that you need to take into consideration when choosing your iPod. Many things are cheap and easy to put together, so they may be worth the price if you don’t know what you need. However, if you do, here are a few tips to help you decide what you need.
- If you don’t know where to start, you’ve probably realized that most people use their iPods to listen to music. Great. That’s great! Because there’s a pretty good chance that you already have all the music you’ll ever need. It’s the kind of thing that makes sense to buy another player that’s even better. If you don’t need fancy iTunes sync or podcast Synchrony, the entry-level iPod will do the job just fine. You can buy an iPod that’s pre-wired to play your music from the moment you plug it in, or you can go with a little investment and just plug it in to a computer and sync it yourself. Having the option is probably more convenient than not having it at all.
- You can get a lot done with a little bit of practice. Most background and skill development programs are free and easy to use. Even if you don’t have a lot of time to get familiar with it, just do a bit of research. The internet is a great place to begin.
- You can buy a keyboard for your iPod. This is cool, but probably not something you’ll need to use. Your iPod is still going to be your best friend, wouldn’t you want to be able to have a keyboard in there somewhere? I wouldn’t, but if you don’t want to deal with it, I can totally see the benefits of giving this a try. So, if you do a lot of audio, you may want to consider getting yourself a keyboard. It can really help you organize your thoughts!
- If you’re a movie buff, you can get yourself some great (and expensive) films as gifts. This might be a great option if you have a massive collection of films, but most gifts are at least portable, so you don’t always have to leave the house to watch your gift. I know, it can be pretty hard to get that grant thing, but it’s worth it in the end – besides, $1 and you can keep it forever!
- There are many TV guide services. The way to watch most of your channels is to buy a separate guide service, or subscribe to some online ones. You can watch whatever you want, whenever you want to. The best part is, they don’t even have to be discs, you can watch on your iPod! That’s right, you can watch your own TV guide! Most of these services will also update the data on the disc, so you never have to be without your favorite shows ever again!
- You can always watch TV shows on your iPod. Thanks to some recent developments, you can watch recorded TV shows from your iPod. It’s… not as cool as watching live TV, but you can always do it whenever you want. And thanks to some new iPod devices, you can watch even more shows than you could a few years ago.
This is just a quick overview of some of the things you can do with an iPod that has some basic software to support it. You can find all sorts of other things to do, including gaming with it, photo editing and downloading MP3 files from iTunes. This gadget is a lot more! It’s hard to believe how advanced this technology has gotten since the days when it first arrived on the market.
