iPod is an experience, not a product!
I now own an iPod ... and I can now understand a lot of the buzz about them. It really is amazing. Not the product, but the experience that Apple has created. I have to admit that I underestimated what Apple has created. I kept thinking "Yeah ... another MP3 player, but a little cooler looking." But after having it and using it for one week I am thoroughly impressed.
I'm working on ways to integrate the iPod with our product, and so I got one to begin to do the research. I wasn't sure if I would use it much or not, but I am now hooked. It is so well thought through ... again, not the iPod device, but the entire solution of iTunes and the iPod. I am now using both of these on a daily basis, and the synergy between the two products is well thought out and polished. Apple has done a lot of thinking about all of the details.
I do have a few complaints ... but they are very few. What I did like is that I can now add iCal and vCard objects to my iPod and they are accessible via the UI. I found a lot of information from this link about iPod synchronization sent to me by a friend.
Anyhow ... expect me to post more about my iPod experience ... so far it's amazing!
