GoodNo offence taken
I think that is correct, I have a couple of US Market Creative devices that I was reliably informed are louder than their EU couterparts.Don't iPods/MP3/Phones purchased in the EU
have the volume levels lower than those sold in other markets?
It's not actually that bad from a standards compliancy POV, the problem probably being Microsofts age old ideology that Standards were Extensible and building in proprietary web controls that people used and other browsers had trouble with...It's a third rate web browser from Apple.
I quite like it myself

I've had to bin off Firefox for IE7, single sign on via the windows security token doesn't work with FF and I'm developing workflow on Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server at the moI meant third rate as in I'd use Firefox or Opera over Safari.
(My only exposure has been on the Touch. Let's just say
it works 90% of the time.)
:thumbs: I have to agree. The iPod itself is very nice and ergonomic, it does have the " Feel Good " factor about it, perhaps like an Alfa !The iPod isn't a bad piece of hardware to be fair to it, the software it runs on and the iTunes pap you have to put up with is dire though.
For people who don't like the Crapple interface when using the iPod, look into
MediaMonkey beats iTunes hands down in almost everything, you can sync to your iPod and any other MP3 player out there without it deciding it wants to wipe everything and start again, you set the directory structure you want to fill your ipod with. It organises, tags files from the internet, builds playlists, libraries, exports to Excel/ Access. The only thing missing is that it doesn't work with Linux.
Best of both worlds, you get the iPods swish design and you can use it how you want.
Heretic - burn the Blue Bear now!!!!!
There's a zillion and one of these pieces of software out there, Anapod is also pretty popular, Winamp does the same job, Foobar with foo_pod, Songbird, even Windows Media Player will sync with your iPod. Not heard of xplay and never used it myself. All a matter of personal taste really, they all do pretty much the same thing, some are free, some aren't, all have cracked copies floating around the internetHave to look into this Mediamonkey, is it the way forward ? No one has posted much about xplay yet either, are these two similar or is one better than the other or is just down to personal taste ? Really would like more info on this and it seems a few other folk would also be interested.
Helle-freakin'-luyah :thumbs:I can't stand the way iTunes scatters songs around the iPod hard drive so you're forced to use the database to find and play stuff, I want all files from an album together in the same folder so you don't have to keep rebuilding the database every time you put anything new on it.
