Ipod and jogging (#1625)


Five reasons not to believe "five reasons not to buy an IPOD"

It's good that someone is the devils advocado I suppose, but don't let this put you off owning a smashing gadget...

Six-plus hours of battery life is not always enough

Hmm, starts off with a good one, not that I'm in the habit of frequent journeys of more than EIGHT hours, but if I was I'd get one of these...

Jogging with a hard drive-based player is not cool

"Some experts say that it's impossible to damage the drive in this way" well, that would be good enough for me. If I ever jogged.

The IPOD is expensive

The standard excuse rolled out by people who are too poor, or have spent all their social security on glue and scratchcards. Work harder you jealous bums!

You want to make high-quality digital recordings

Oh no, also I can't watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer on my IPOD! Also, why can't I make toast in my kettle? How rubbish is that, all devices should be able to do ALL THINGS... Who's to say this option won't be available with a free software update... that's one of my favourite things about this, I've not had a personal stereo that I could upgrade before...

You want a choice in online music stores


Ah, right at the end of the article they 'fess up - it's the best piece of kit around.

ipod and jogging

dont do it. no matter what apples says the ipod does not tolerater running. If your not having problems then your not running enough. I ran for 5 years with a regular cd player no problems. the ipod didnot tolerate 5 weeks got it repaired and last 3 weeks. I am looking else where for a product that take the beating and keep on ticking!

...and I'm not a bum without a job :-)

I just don't see why I should buy a $400+ device
when I can buy one (e.g. from Archos) which can do exactly the same AND more !!
