OK, I know it has little to do with photography, except that photography is often a solo activity and listening to music can put you in a mood that suits.
After years of resisting buying an Apple product (I despise their customer service principles – in particular, the one the stops you getting your money back on a clearly faulty product as I had experiences with my daughter’s iPod in the past), I finally plunged in and bought the 4th generation Apple iPod Nano 8Gb model.
Very nice, although there seemed to be some interference by announcements at train stations.
BUT, I have a big gripe with it – there are only 2 settings for shuffle (random selection) mode – all songs or album.
Now I like my classic music and have them in a different playlist to my other music – but why can’t we shuffle within a single selected playlist???
I was at the footy last night, and it was not conducive to a good listening experience when the shuffle selected my Beethoven and Mozart.
Now, the online manual says that when you set Settings-Shuffle to album, it should shuffle your selected album OR playlist. But when you start playing a playlist, it plays them sequentially, not in random order, and if you go back to the main menu and select SHUFFLE, it then shuffles ALL SONGS not just your current selected play list.
Lastly, it would seem you can’t re-charge it via USB connection to a computer and listen to it at the same time. To play songs on it, you must eject the iPod but even though still connected to USB, it no longer re-charges.
If anyone can enlighten me I would be pleased to hear from you.
