When the iPhone came out in June I wanted one, but didn’t get it because of the two year contract with AT&T. While I was held back because of the contract others didn’t want to combine their phone with their media player. Tim Gideon from PC Magazine seems to agree with the others whom avoid combining their phone with their media assets. He says he couldn’t stand having his music interrupted by a pesky phone call. WiFi is changing the way we get our music. Apple allows flexibility in our mobile life style where iTunes music store is now on the go so that you may buy your music wherever there is a WiFi connection. Their new partnership with Starbucks allows anyone in Starbucks to buy their music and if you hear a song playing that you like you can buy it on your mobile.
The iPod looks like the iPhone at a glance, but actually it is much more thin. The 3.5 inch touch screen plays widescreen video with 163 pixels per inch. PC Magazine says that the best function of the iPod is the double click function to the one button. It’s the same button you see on the iPhone with the metallic shine. Pushing the tactile button twice makes the music controls come up over any browser.
I recommend Sure earphones to go with the iPod because they cancel out the sound and don’t fall out like the earphones that come with the iPod. Rock out to your favorite tunes on the shiny new iPod.
