Also, get a car charger if you get an iTrip. They say that the iTrip uses little battery life, but it's a lie, I tell you! A lie! I
Agreed.

I my ipod. It's got some scratches though and I really wish I'd gotten a case... *goes to buy one*

The lesson, as always, is that I'm an idiot.

So I've been trying to decide on whether to get an iTrip or a professionally installed converter to play my new iPod in the car. Then it hit me last night ... my stereo also has a tape deck. Couldn't I just plug an old cassette tape adapter for a Discman into my iPod?

I tried it this morning. It works perfectly.



BTW, Bonochick, I bought the Incase folio that you recommended from the Apple store in Novi last night. It's fabulous.

Glad to hear it!

I think I might head out there today and dream of buying more iPods.

yeah me too!
I was really pissed off at the result because they wouldn't let me return it. for some reason my itrip and my ipod don't work together in the car so I just use it at home for my stereos and stuff.

that's what I use in the car, and I find it to be WAY better than the itrip

Some accessories that were normally white were made in black to match the U2 iPod. Same accessories, different color. And there was also the above-mentioned black and red case. Though it could be used for a regular iPod, it was designed with the U2 iPod in mind.

oh my. that thing looks beautiful. it certainly puts to shame the half-broken computer speaker set that i use at work.



oh, and the main point behind me reading this thread - will someone tell me exactly, in plain english, what the hell an itrip is? or send me to a link? i'm technologically retarded. i swore against getting an ipod for several months because i was sure i'd never be able to figure out how to use it. glad i saw the error in my ways since the thing is my best friend.

I use mine in my office too. It's especially nice when someone turns on the crappy music out in the hall...just shut my office door and turn up the good stuff.
