Well, I got what I wanted. I’m sorry for being quiet lately, but it was my birthday yesterday, and I got quite sick today, so I just wanted to give a small update before things will start to change around here. You can guess that May first is a bit in the blue; I don’t know if I will be able to get the new two ‘layouts’ finished in time. Anyway, work will continue, so you’ll notice, eventually.
Don’t you people miss a lot? My last iPod was a second generation iPod, 40 gigabytes, and it died (battery) quite quickly. Not so good for 600 euros of hard-earned cash. I hope this new nano will serve me a bit more faithfully.
Strangely, there are a lot of applications for the iPod, but very few seem to serve my purpose. There are very few apps to synchronize unread Mail, RSS articles, convert PDF’s to a rich text file and export it, and do ‘widget’ tasks (get weather, TV guide, stocks, or other info on your iPod). The biggest gripe, however, I have with my new iPod, is very simple; I want to see it’s battery life status on my Mac.
This shouldn’t be too difficult to achieve, yet nobody seems to have picked this up. I’ll see what I can do, myself.
Stay tuned for the monthly blog redesign.
