    Apple iPod MP3 Player Review

    Bottom Line: Most of you have probably heard of Apple's iPod, it is small, it is white, it plays MP3s from a hard drive instead of a CD, and-unsurprisingly-like all Apple products, it is expensive. Read on to find out if the newest revision of the iPod is worth your money…

    Components:

         

    The iPod comes with all the same components as the original iPod, with the exception of the slick new cradle. The cradle interfaces with the iPod through a new proprietary jack-no regular Firewire jack like the old iPod.

         

    Because of this, the Firewire cable and the future USB 2.0 cable must have the necessary proprietary connection-you can't just use any old Firewire or USB cable. The cradle is handy for connecting the iPod to the computer for synching and charging, but while the iPod is mounted as a drive by the computer it is not possible to play songs, so you must unmount it before using the cradle audio out.. (As a side note you must have 6-pin Firewire ports in order for your iPod to charge from your computer, 4-pin Firewire will work for transferring, but not charging. Also, we are uncertain if USB will be able to charge the iPod, because there are other players that charge via USB, but on Apple's site it looks as though it will not be possible.) You may also notice that in addition to synching and charging the cradle also has a mini-jack audio out port to allow you to connect the cradle to any sound system.
