iPods in Libraries
Julie (Head of SJCPL's AV Area) and I have bantered
about circulating MP3 players for months -- a rather cool idea. Kalamazoo
PL has been doing it awhile. They link up to audible.com for content. My vote
for a circulating player would be the iPod! Here's what I'd do in a perfect
world: Circulate 20 10GB iPods
Load 10 with the hottest
AudioBooks going or collections of Audiobooks by super-hot authors -- purchased
just for the iPod (you can't circulate something you've copied to MP3 format)
Load 10 with a sampling of the
super-popular musical styles that people are into:
Hot Hits of 2003 (including new
releases - Fleetwood Mac and Madonna anyone?)
"Now that's what I call..." with all 12+
When the selections have run their
course, the iPods are updated with new stuff and the originating CDs can be put
into the collection. Rock On! Patrons
would give a credit card deposit of $300 and receive the iPod, the AC plug
adaptor and cable to charge it, a case, a car kit and directions.
I googled to see if any libraries are
circulating iPods but I didn't get any good hits.

Dell's DJ... iPod Wanna-Be?
As part of a far-reaching
effort to add a line of consumer electronics to its arsenal, PC maker Dell Inc.
announced Thursday plans to introduce its own variations on Apple's iPod and
iTunes Music Store for this upcoming holiday season.
Although details are
still scant, the company indicates that it will produce the Dell Digital
Jukebox, or DJ -- a "digital music player featuring a sleek design, with large
storage capacity, excellent battery life and easy to use controls."
I'm interested in how this will play

New Music and a Rant about Prices
Adding new music to my iTunes library. Today I
bought three new CDs: Doors:
Absolute Best Steve
Miller Greatest Hits
Best of the Grateful Dead We
were at Borders
in Mishawaka and I had them in my hand but the prices seemed to be
too too much: Miller was $18.99, Doors was $19.99 and the Dead was $14.99. I
thought the Steve Miller would be on sale because it was just released and I
asked but it wasn't. So I put them all back and went to Best Buy just up the street. Miller
and the dead were $11.99 and the Doors were $19.99.... Note to the Borders
corporate people: put the new releases on sale!!... I know they can't have sale
prices as low as big 'ole Best Buy but please! Julie was with me and had
purchased the new Simply
Red . Best Buy had it just a dollar
cheaper...I love Borders: atmosphere,
book selection, etc... but every dollar counts.... I wonder what the prices are
at Barnes and Noble....

Pioneer Player in the new Forester w/iPod AUX!
Last night, the incredible fellows at Best Buy
Mishawaka installed a Pioneer
DEH-P8500MP in the new Forester. Jon, incredible install guy, knew
I wanted to play my iPod as well so he used the AUX in and wired in some RCS
cables. I need a Monster
iCable and I'm ready to
roll.The player is very nice,
supporting MP3 and ready for an XM receiver if I evber go that way...but with an
iPod why would I??

Tracks are the new currency....
I chatted with Keith, my friend from college the
other night, and we discussed how the advent of the Apple iTunes Music Store
and services that are copying them will change the way we buy music forever.
Albums may not be marketed the same ever again we pondered. "Tracks," Keith
said, "will be the new currency of the Music Industry..."

New iPod Review
30GB iPod.... new features...
I've been using the new iPod about a week. I am
really impressed with the improvement of some of the features: the play,
forward, back buttons... the scroll that feels just so COOL...and the rounded
corners. I bought the Japanese version of the Sony Fontopia 71s -- they are
white! Look for them on eBay or at
. The dock is pretty cool but I am iffy on the
adaptor to let the iPod charge directly to an outlet. The previous version was
fluid and simple. I am pondering a second dock for the stereo.
I have a little over 31GB of music on
the G4 at home so I was able to load up just about everything I'd ever want on
the road or at Panera
is the new iPod...with my favorite song playing....
