iPods- Basic Information You Need To Know - Articles Surfing
Let's face the fact. iPods are the hottest things to have these days. Just about everybody has one or wants to get one. It's an all in one gadget that seems to do wonders.
iPods are capable of playing music while you are on the move, organizing your personal and business commitments, storing photos which you can proudly display to your friends at the touch of a button.
Just when you thought that things could not get better, the iPod mini was released complete with cool accessories like:
' Apple remote - Universal Docks support this. You can connect it to a stereo or television, plug it in the Dock and control everything from there.
' USB power adapter- Easily charge your iPod while you are surfing the internet.
' AV connection kit- Play your favourite tunes, movies or photos on the television with a simple connection.
' Radio remote- Changing radio stations is a breeze with the remote. It is a wired remote.
' Universal dock ' Basically this allows you to connect your iPod to the television or home entertainment system to view movies or display photos,etc.
' USB cable- You need this to connect your iPod to your computer.
' Camera connector- Tranfer your pretty pictures from your camera directly to your iPod
' In-ear headphones- Makes listening to music even better with its good bas response and quality audio.
You have some variety too. Since iPods come in models with 512MB or 1G. The prices are also very reasonable considering the tons of cool stuff you could do with an iPod. For about $100, you could pick up an iPod and be listening to Shakira's latest hit in minutes.
There are several points you need to consider so that you'll be able to make a wise decision when buying an iPod.
1.) iPod Nano
The iPod Nano is the most common model now. You have a coice of music,data and photos with this model and the colors are great. It is a slim model that will easily slide into your pocket.
2.) Battery life
The 4G model battery lasts about 8 hours roughly. Not too good. However, the latest 5G models have a battery life of about 14 hours.That's much better and the battery lasts much longer too.
Pretty standard color here. :)
In the past, video was not an option. Thankfully, things have improved and now with the iPod Video, you can have data, music, photo and video...all in one model. Just fantastic!
The iPod Shuffle is a slightly cheaper iPod model and suitable for those with a lower budget. It only supports music which you can listen to in a sequence or shufled. There is no screen or other features. If you only need an iPod to play music and don't really need the fancy features, this model would be a good pick.
You should be able to purchase an iPod from most good electronics stores. You could even buy one online.
Some websites are even giving away iPods free. Basically, you'll need to fill up some affiliate form and refer 5 friends to the site to do the same. It's a simple idea but you may face some difficulty getting friends to sign up. You could give it a try. There are many people who have received a free iPod in this manner. The rewards are good since the effort you put into it is minimal.
