My foofpod

Posted by Mark

foof

When I pre-ordered my iPod Video I also looked around for a case for my iPod. From the start I decided I wasn’t going to get a case where I would have to keep my iPod in it the whole time. I wanted to enjoy the sleek iPod in my hands and not via some case. I also didn’t want to get an iSkin since although it would allow me to keep the iPod scratch free it completely destroys the iPods sleek look and feel. I also had one for my original iPod and I hated it. In the end I decided I would get an iPod sleeve. The sleeve would protect my iPod while I carried it in my bag or pocket but when I wanted to use it I could take out the iPod from it. I searched around for various sleeves and in the end if settled for the foofpod.

The foofshop has a whole lot of different materials for the sleeves but in the end I decided to go with the Red Fire Engine (vibrant corduroy). Since my iPod was going to be black I figured red would look good with it and I was right, it does. I got the foof before my iPod so when my iPod arrived I quickly shoved it into the foof and it was a perfect fit. My iPod felt really safe and at home in the foof. The foof also quickly grabbed the attention of my employees at work since it really doesn’t look like your average everyday case. Overall I am very satisfied and it only cost me around $15 for something that was handmade all the way in Australia, pretty cool.

Posted by Mark

Nokia N91 beats the iPod

Posted by Mark

… in a drop test. According to this post the N91 passed the drop test 300 times while the iPod mini only survived the same test 12 times. Nokia rulez? I don’t think so. [Link]

jeremy clarkson

Back in October I posted about a rumor that Jeremy Clarkson was in Kuwait. Around a week ago someone commeneted to that post saying that he was in Kuwait but just having a quick stay over before going to Iraq to do a story for an English paper. Seems thats true, I just found the article Behind Jeremy Lines where Clarkson goes to Iraq. [Link]

Amazon.com New Feature: Tags

Posted by Mark

Tags provide an easy way for you to “remember” and classify any item on the Amazon site for later recall. For example, you might be shopping for holiday gifts and tag items with the names of the people on your shopping list. At any time, you can review the items you’ve tagged and make final gift decisions. You can add tags from the detail page for any product, and the items you’ve tagged and tags you’ve used are displayed on Your Profile. [Link]

iPod Video doesn’t like phones

Posted by Mark

I was just talking to TivoGuy and asking him about his iPod Video since we got both ours yesterday. He told me it was great except the interference from the cell phone messed the ipod up. So I tried it myself, I made a call while holding my phone next to the iPod Video and the thing went crazy, the volume just kept going up and down quickly non-stop. I can’t believe this, now every time someone calls me on my cell phone my ipod is going to go crazy. Sucks.

Update: Here is a crappy video showing what I am talking about. Will shoot a better video in the evening with a better camera.
[Video 3GP 260KB] Right click and save as

Update 2: Just renamed the video file because some sites have been linking to it directly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

TV on the Go

Posted by Mark

arrested development ipod

With all the cool shows on TV I no longer have enough time after work to watch them all plus have enough time to go biking and shopping. So now that my iPod Video is here I will be able to watch TV while I am at work working. I love working while watching TV, its really comfortable. I currently have season 3 of Arrested Development, season 1 of The Office and 1 episode of Magnum PI all on my iPod. iPod video rocks!
