    It's a great investment. Especially when you can hook it up to you car stero.

    Congrats...

    Which one did you get?

    I have a 30 gigger. Really nice machine.

    I don't have any accessories. But a case other than the one that comes with it is probably a good idea. My iPod is all scratched ( tiny scratches ) because of the case.

    Hmm.. yeah Im thinking of getting something a little better than the case that comes with it.. I saw one that you could access the front of the iPod which seems like an obvious choice for a case.. not sure why apple did it this way

    Also looking at that fm tuner thing.. that looks real smooth. Im not sure how else to hook it into a stereo.. if you have some ideas I would love to hear them

    Plus hmm.. oh maybe that earphone splitter to allow more than one person to jack into the iPod.. that would be pretty smooth

    I am going to do a little more research today to see what else is out there. Found quite a few nifty little programs to use with my iPod though so am pretty stoked about them

    You can get a headphone jack to RCA converter to get it into your stereo. That is how I have it setup to hook into my car stereo. The cable that I have is HERE at radioshack.com.

    Wait a minute.. why didnt you get the one that "looks" good? That's a little too practical Emrys.. what's going on! *grin* It is about half the price also.. so I think I just might go for something like that instead of other ones they are trying to sell to iPod owners. Thanks!

    Exactly! You're talking about MP3/AAC's here. The quality is alread gone, why bother paying double, triple, for a gold plated wire that will do you no good.

    headphones
    I have the 10 gig, I bought a better set of headphones, and headed to griffin and bought the fm adapter.. it's very nice.

    The headphones they provide, are pretty poor. especially with low end frequency.

    I wish they'd do an XM type adapter, then you'd never have to worry about a good station going out of range, and have to keep switching.


    My soundcard had firewire, i was told by the best buy clerk it came with a usb adapter! ha !

    i love those USB to firewire cable adapters, dont you?

    Yeah I already had a decent set of headphones and so am now using them.. plus the headphones that came with it.. hurts my ears.. I think they are too big. I have some wraparound earbuds that work great.. they are not white, but they are definitely functional

    Im looking at the iTrip, but it doesnt work on the 3Gen iPods.. so hopefully they'll have a new one some time soon.. and I can find a review on it and see how well it works before purchasing

    *laugh* oh yeah.. great adapters
