Well I finally did it! I broke down and purchased a Video iPod I was using the Zen Micro from Creative that is now a couple of years old. Mind you there was nothing wrong with it other than I am a gadget guy and it IS 2 years old 😉
In talking with many people the Video iPod seemed the way to go for many reasons. I subscribe to several podcasts but I have seen a trend of many poducations going to video. I checked out on Itunes (the online application needed to connect to an iPod) and lo and behold not only could I get many video podcasts (one of my fav’s GeekBrief.tv) I could also download tv episodes and movies which are Perfect for traveling among many other things. That sealed my decision and I ended up choosing the 80gb version just so that I could have plenty of storage for all my stuff! turns out.
Well after loading over 1,000 songs, 8 episodes of a current show (Hero’s) 5 educational documenteries and many podcasts both video and audio (good audio podcast – MarketingOnlineLive.com ) I still have over 60 GB to fill. Looks like I will be ripping more of my cd collection.
Something that I found usefull even though the Video iPod is quite intuitive is a book called “The Rough Guide To iPods” I figured many of the basic things myself but I wanted to be sure I knew how to best use this new “Tool”. And this guide was just the ticket showing me how to import audios and videos to making playlists and organizing everything. If anyone reading this post has a video iPod besure to let me know what you think of yours. Also if you have a podcast post a comment on that to I would love to hear and learn what others are doing.
I hope to be launching ThatOnePodcast.com soon myself. next question video or audio….
Until next time…
I wish you all the best and much success in everything you do!
