In this era of portable music, iPod has downloaded itself into public consciousness … where it will not be left anytime soon. It is not that we have the mind, we have the mind. Despite a large pool of prestigious competitors such as Sony and Dell who create their own Slim MP3 Gizmos, the iPod is still the most popular and best-seller of the bunch. Think about buying an MP3 player, and I bet that your knee-jerk reaction will be to minimize the idea, if not, then the iPod.
When Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the iPod Nano in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, it became known as the smallest member of the iPod family line and the successor to the iPod mini-display. Months ago NANO). Compatible with both Mac and Windows-both computers, the iPod nano comes in two colors, white and black. You also have a choice of 2GB version ($ 199) or 4GB version ($ 249), which is a bit steep for the fact that the iPod Mini has kept the same price tag for the 4GB and 6GB models, respectively. The storage drive of the iPod Nano has been flashed, which means that any moving parts in the inside (the wear and tear and the ability to break down), high durability and jogging, biking, or after happy hours, from home No sound coming out while coming out. Given the growing capabilities and capabilities of flash drives, I would not be surprised if Apple someday started implementing this technology in its major products. But this is for another article.
The first thing is that the Nano has the possibility to notice, as its name suggests, it is small. You really have to hold one to see how wonderful this device is, and my first thought was that small jeans of my jeans can now fulfill a great purpose. Nano measures 3.5 “long, 1.6” wide (small surface area with credit card), and measures only 27 “thick (thin compared to an AAA battery). Smooth and seamless, simple elegance of Nano familiar to Apple fans Yes, it is definitely a shiny looking machine, because it is shiny on its surface, it is a small machine because it does not have a thin layer of acrylic, but to eliminate the scratches and / or It’s sensitivity to fingerprints (especially black color). Version of Nano). Only by weight weighing 1.5 ounces, you can transfer the nano on a flat surface by sneezing it, although I recommend it for health reasons Have not.
Key Features: Like all other iPods, Nano is designed to mainly run MP3 files like digital music. And like our relatives, Nano inspires to work best. According to my research, Nano uses a similar sound chip, and as mentioned earlier, overall quality is excellent. The included earbubs do a great job of delivering the sound, although I would prefer high-end headphones to take full advantage of the audio experience. Fidling with included Equalizer settings also makes noticeable sound adjustments, so playful sound sensors can do something to smile at here.
Owners of previous iPods should not have any problem navigating the interface, such as selecting songs, playlists, and using a touch-sensitive click-wheel like it is still user-friendly, but I want to have those sharp fingers Hate to leave the marks!). Connecting and connecting to iTunes on Mac and Windows machines was easy and straightforward. According to information available on Apple’s website, there are 500 songs in 2GB iPod Nano, while the 4GB version is about 1,000, assuming that the average song is 4 minutes long and is compressed at 128 kbps using AAC encoding. And like the big iPods, Nano recognizes encoded songs in the following formats: MP3, AAC (AAC format preserved from iTunes Music Store), AIFF and WAV.
Unlike the iPod Mini, however, the Nano sports a single photo capability as a color display along with the top iPod photo. It may be a “just because we can” idea cooked by the engineers in Cupertino, because I found something strange when sharing my latest photos on a screen that is of a postal stamp.
But I believe that joining such a small device is a fun feature. Complete with the general organization options, you are able to create slideshows (with music and transition effects) and classify your photos in any way. Nano identifies images in the following formats: JPEG, GIF, PSD (Mac only), TIFF, BMP and PNG. I will take the time to note that the camera connector for the iPod photo is used to transfer pictures from the digital still camera directly into the iPod photo, the iPod will not work with the Nano. In addition, other existing third party devices like voice recorder and FM transmitters are not currently compatible with Nano.
There are also features that are especially present on the iPod Nano, such as the World Clock Function, which allows you to see local time anywhere in the world. Once you choose a region (or major international city), a clock will appear on the display. In the second area, depending on which time of the day, it will darken or dim the color of the clock, which often works for travelers. Feel like prank like calling your friends in Egypt at 3am local time? IPod Nano can help! (Of course, I do not condemn such behavior – use this facility to make sure that you do not accidentally call your friends in the dam in Egypt).
Other nano technical features include screen lock and stopwatch. Screen lock allows you to create a 4-digit combination to prevent others from going through your music and photos. It seems like an effective method of detection, is a thief or thief, but since I have so many passwords and codes in my life, I can do it without having to remember. Apart from this, such an affordable gadget like Nano should be kept in a safe place anyway. The convenience of the stopwatch is very clean, and allows you to keep track of your best lap time or keep track of providing long-term technical support.
Battery life: iPod Nano boasts 14 hours of music playback, although the use of the photo slideshow with background music increases in the background while playing in the background. Charging through the included USB 2.0 cable, which connects to the dock connector on its underscores, takes approximately 3 hours to get the Nano nearly one hour and one full charge to reach 80% capacity. Currently, the iPod Nano is not enabled. In my research, I have also learned that the battery of Nano appears to be permanently restored in the unit, which raises questions about the viability of the future battery replacement (or possibility). The information will be updated as soon as it will be found.

High cost for relatively small drive space (compared to other iPod models), more advanced iPod features / lack of support, no existing fireplace capacity, surface scrub and scratch are not easily preserved.
Despite the relatively heavier price tag for its storage capacity, Apple’s new iPod Nano is definitely a cool tool for most of the Got-pass-It-Gadget-Files, and for those who are a reliable, easy-to-use Want high quality mp3 player . If you want to relax or play your favorite songs while running, then Nano and its extra work will make you happy. People who are big in more complex tasks can be frustrated with the current lack of available facilities (no support for FM transmitters, camera connectors, firewalls, etc.). But its easy to use, intuitive interface, style and quality is a very difficult task to resist it.
