This is the stuff that makes the Apple community so great: my DVD with “Welcome to Macintosh” arrived this week. I wanted a copy on my iPod Touch, so I started ripping the DVD and twittered about it. Some minutes later, I received this tweet:
@fkoehn Are you using the file we included on the disk? We added chapter marks and lots of metadata that will show up on iDevices
AWESOME! I hadn’t seen that (although they mention it on the web page) – that was indeed a lot faster… ;)
I’m already keeping my credit card ready for September – I just successfully sold my 1st Gen iPhone (the best thing about the iPhone 3G? 1st Gen iPhone prices went WAY up on eBay, even for used ones. Crap, I should have anticipated that and stocked a few…).
All I really want is a 32 GB Nano – hope they don’t make it too big (which would defeat the naming anyway). The Touch is not too good for in-car use – having to unlock the screen to change tracks really blows.
Oh, and updating podcasts through WiFi without iTunes would be great – just implement it the same way that buying songs on the Touch/iPhone works, that should not be a big deal.
