  1. Giulia vs iPod!

    Alfa Giulia
    I know this is old school and we have the wonders of Bluetooth, but I also have my entire music collection on a 6th generation iPod Classic. This worked fine when hooked up to the standard head unit in my old GQV (albeit with an interface which gave pretty much no control over the iPod from the...

  16. Apple, the iPod and iTunes

    The Technology Section
    Utter She-ite. I want to re-install some apps on my old iPod Touch. But I can't because it's iOS3 and all the apps in iTunas are now iOS7 only. And if I try and restore the apps from a back-up it says it can't because the iPod is synched to another (now binned) PC. Like i said utter She-ite.
