I was cleaning out some old photos I've saved throughout the years in Google Photos (Remember Picasa, anybody?) and I stumbled upon this photo of what appears to be concept art (possibly by a random individual) for an iPod Nano, so I did a reverse image search and it looks like that pic was from 2005! Funny to see that just 5 years later in 2010 we'd see that similar form factor on the 6th gen iPod Nano.

A couple of weeks ago I was given a 1st generation #iPad with 64GB. No charger for it, so I didn't have any idea if it worked or not. Last week I got a broken non-working #iPod that had a charger. (The battery is bad in the iPod, but it works if on the charger).
After a few hours, the #iPad powered on. Much to my surprise it's holding a charge.
W ekspresowym tempie dotarł do mnie kolejny produkt od Grid Studio – iPod Classic z 2004 roku. Przed rokiem był to rozebrany na czynniki pierwsze iPhone X, a tym razem jest to ikoniczny iPod.
Grid Studio tworzy i sprzedaje ciekawą koncepcję – rozbierają ciekawe i często wyjątkowe sprzęty, których poszczególne komponenty potem doczepiają do tła i szczegółowo je opisują.
W swojej ofercie mają praktycznie wszystko od Apple’a, od pierwszych iPodów po współczesne iPady i iPhone’y. Mają też Apple Watcha, SoC firmy z Cupertino, pięknie zatopione w pleksi, niedawno wprowadzili do oferty pinezki, no i nie można zapomnieć o konsolach do grania, w tym o Gameboyach.
Grid Studio, z okazji Black Friday 2023, od najbliższej środy 22 listopada do wtorku 28 listopada (więc promocja zahacza o Cyber Monday), organizuje przeceny, których wartość sięga 50%.
Jeśli szukacie podpowiedzi, to zaproponuję iPhone’a 1. generacji – to smartfon, który zmienił wszystko.
Wysyłka od Grid Studio jest bezproblemowa i trafia do adresata w ciągu paru dni – sprawdzone już dwukrotnie na własnej skórze.
Jeśli macie jakiekolwiek pytania na temat tych produktów, to zapraszam do kontaktu.
Jeszcze raz przypominam, że promocja startuje za 2 dni, 22 listopada, więc pilnujcie tej strony i pamiętajcie, że dostępność jest ograniczona, szczególnie starszych sprzętów, bo trudno dzisiaj je kupić w odpowiednim stanie, aby nadawały się na taką ekspozycję.
#ipod mini modders: do you have a preferred replacement Li-Ion battery brand that you like to work with?
i replaced mine with a (surprisingly expensive) "HSABAT"-brand battery from aliexpress that failed after 6 months.

So, ich hab meinen alten #iPod 5. Generation (iPod Video hieß der damals, glaube ich) aus der Schublade geholt, #RockBox installiert und was soll ich sagen: Das ist immer noch einer der besten mobilen Audioplayer aller Zeiten.
Jetzt bekommt er einen neuen Akku und die 30 GB HDD wird durch 512 GB SD-Cards ersetzt. Damit hab ich noch ein paar Jahre Spaß.

Experimenting with the #iPod instead of #MiniDisc today, and discovering that the biggest reason I don't listen to music more when out is because my MD player is godawful loud. It's okay-ish when just playing but seeking to a new track or just starting playing is so loud; and my unit is pretty freshly cleaned and lubricated although perhaps it was still quieter when it was new.
iPods are now considered ‘vintage’ tech—so of course, they’re sold out at Urban Outfitters 🎧
Apple’s fifth generation iPod was listed for a whopping $349 at the Gen Z-favored retailer.
If you’re shocked that the iPod is making a comeback, prepare to have your brain “shuffled.” The Apple iPod Mini (first generation) was selling for $199, while the Apple iPod (the fifth generation) cost a whopping $349.
Can you believe this week marks 22 years since the launch of the iPod? It was the gadget that could hold '1000 songs in your pocket' and it paved the way for so much more. What was the first song you downloaded?

On one hands $200 for a modded iPod Mini with 128GB of flash storage and a new battery isn't actually that bad. That's about the going rate from independent modders. On the other hand, I'm feeling the olds.
22 years ago on October 23, 2001, Apple introduced the original iPod.
The original iPod with the iconic mechanical scroll wheel, had a 5 GB hard drive capable of storing approximately 1,000 songs.
It was compact, easy to use and most importantly, it synced seamlessly with iTunes, Apple's music management software.
Nani!? #ipod (it was fully working, but the screen was stuck wrapped like this!)
🔫 Doom can be played on various devices where you wouldn't expect it... Can you identify the gadget in the picture? 🎶🎵

So a lot of the #iPod issues seem to have been caused by the iFlash SD card drive replacement being... kinda crap. Shoving an actual hard drive in it can play back the same music formats that gave the SD card trouble and actually maxes out USB 2.0 speeds.
I've seen reports of other people having similar issues, so watch out.
Not a great long term solution because well... hard drive! But at least the noises it makes are nostalgic, even if you can feel the access times.

@goatsarah @fne8w2ah #Apples #Lightning Connector was shit from day 1 and had 0 reasons to exist - unlike the original #DockConnector, but even then the #iPod could've used #MiniUSB or #MicroUSB + #AV-Chinch and #MHL to do Audio & Video.
Remember when you had to plug in your #iPod to sync with #iTunes? That's basically how I use my #AppleWatch and #iPhone today: My iPhone is the hardware-iTunes I use to manage my #Apple Watch, which is the replacement for my iPod. I hope some time soon we'll get Apple Watches that no longer need an iPhone to be managed. I'd be ok with setting it up via iPad or Mac, but I really don't want to own a #Smartphone anymore. My dream setup would be an Apple Watch, an iPad Mini, and a #Mac.
"A mint-condition, first-generation iPod sold for $29,000 on collectibles investing platform" #ipod #collector (red flag on "collectibles investing platform" however). https://www.axios.com/2023/08/07/apple-ipod-first-generation-sale?utm_medium=social&utm_source=mastodon&utm_campaign=editorial
- OG iPod, mint in box, sells for $29K
- This marketplace is like a stock market for collectibles. You can buy into an original Wozniak Apple I, for example.

So old and still alive. I love my #iPod 5th generation from 2005! Originally it was the 30GB version. I upgraded to the 60GB version by replacing the micro hard drive and a new back cover. 😍
Help me fill my #ipod looking for music to relax and vibe to whether I’m working, walking, or working out like some trance music or electronic dance music similar to Tiesto, Lily Pita, and more. I can grab it off #applemusic and such and convert it to music for my iPod offline. I will pay for music as well as I am able to to support artists.
Drop artists, albums, or even sets you love below please! I got about 220GB of space available!

I’ve found a new hobby: building iPods Classic using bits from AliExpress parts bin storefronts. It’s not that hard really – you could do it too!
One of my old project posts is doing really well thanks to Mastodon users. Seems to be massive interest again in both retro audio tech & offline audio players. I still use mine on a regular basis. #ipod #apple #offline #audio #ssd #mindful https://www.johnlarge.co.uk/ipod-5th-generation-upgrade-ssd-iflash-sandisk-sd-cards/

Despite learning a lot about computers when I was a kid from the Apple Performa my family had, I've never been an Apple guy, despite owning an iMac once myself. I also really didn't like iTunes, so I never had an iPod.
Back around 2005ish when people were mostly getting iPods and before I got my beloved brown Zune (that someone later stole) I had a wild and wacky (and physically HUGE in comparison) DMC XClef mp3 player that looked like this. It had a LOT of storage space for the time, for the price, and had no software like Apple or Microsoft packaged in with their mp3 players. You didn't need it! You would just plug it up to your computer and transfer the damn files, as it *should* be. A method I use to this very day with my phones.
And I just looked it up to compare, 5th generation iPods around 2005 had about 30 or 60GB drives, these XClefs had 80 to 100GB. I had a friend joke saying I'd never fill it up - and I had to tell him I already pretty much had. 😂
My 14 year old iPod Shuffle works beautifully... except for the 45 minute battery life. I'd really love to have a longer battery life, since I use it while walking, and it's rare I walk less than 2 hours a day at the moment.
I have no idea where to start about installing a new battery into this thing. If you have any recs for tutorials and where to order parts for this little project, please let me know!

Following on from yesterday - I have budget for many #Features at iMore this week.
They can be 'out there' as much as possible, it just has to be fun.
I want new voices.
I think it's kinda cute that Sony have released two new Walkman models, and the (largely USA-centric) tech world is absolutely mystified as to why, apparently unaware that a) Sony never stopped making portable audio devices, and b) DAPs are a huge market.
It's astonishing to these people that not everyone thinks that streaming music is the pinnacle of music appreciation.
I’ve been thinking of starting a weekly #TechTuesday discussion where we can nerd out over our favourite stuff, old and new. Would that be of interest to anyone?
Here’s my modest but growing tech museum that brings me so much joy! Anything here catch your eye? I have a few newer additions that aren’t on display yet. Running out of shelf space, but the Funkos are soon to relocate to a new cabinet. #Apple #Mac #iPod #iPhone #StarWars #Nintendo
Disconnection from walled garden complete.
Synchronizing an old #iPod Nano with a Mac using the marvellous Swinsian instead of the pointless Apple's Music.app (which replaced iTunes on Catalina).
In 2017, I wanted a way to programmatically put music on my iPod. While I found old libraries written in C and Perl that mainly targeted Linux, there wasn't anything modern and cross-platform.
That changes today.
Meet Clickwheel, a .NET 7 library for managing iPods, written in C#.
