The New iPod

Apple has done it again. Hot off the heels of the iPod Nano's introduction five weeks ago, Steve Jobs, at a special event titled "One More Thing..." unveiled the much anticipated video iPod called The iPod. Itunes 6, video support in iTunes, new iMacs and a really cool Media Center PC function in the new iMacs called Front Row were also announced. You can read more about these at our tecnology and entertainment news site, TheNerdcast.com. We wrote a short article about the announcements and will have more as soon as we get a chance to play with them.


For now I just want to point out a few key points of the iPod with a full review to follow as soon as mine arrives.


First up is the just how thin these new iPods are. From the picture below, you can see that compared to the regular 20GB color iPod that the 30GB and 60GB video iPods are slimmer and have more storage. Tremedous! =)

Picture showing how thin the video iPods are


Second, the screen is much larger than the previous iPods, Color and Photo. Obviously this is because it plays video which requires a larger screen to make it worth viewing video.


Third, the specs. Nothing too surprising other than just how thin the new iPod is and how much storage is crammed into such a small space.

Specs: The 60GB iPod is 0.55 inches deep, 2.4 inches wide, 4.1 inches tall and weighs 5.5 ounces.

The 30GB is 0.43 inches (thats less than half an inch!) deep, same width and height as the 60GB and weighs only 4.8 ounces.


Welcome to the Family

If you have any previous version of the iPod or a mini and are looking to upgrade, or if you've never owned an iPod, this is your reason to get one. Apple has streamlined the entire iPod family, making it easier to pick which one you want. Now there are only 3 types of iPods - the Shuffle, Nano and iPod, each with two different capacities. No longer will you be intimidated by all of the different types of iPods. With the new video-capable iPod, we see the culmination of the iPod. Hello video, welcome to the iPod family.

HOLY CRAP! Madrid is awesome! And from Pensacola, FL!

At The Nick - thenickrocks.com - & met the bands. We're in for a great show. =) Wish you were here.

If you want great info about Dennis, go to www.wuwf.org and you can listen to commercial-free info from all kinds of local resources.

I-65 goes back to regular laning at exit 168. If you are in S-bound lanes get in right lane @ mile 160 or before if you want to continue north

Just passed 10 national guard vehicles headed south. Its started raining and traffic has slowed again @ mile 193 on I-65

Traffic just came to a crawl about mile 167, all 4 lanes. Dont know why yet.

There is a bad 5 or 6 car accident on I-65 @ mile 164 in regular northbound lanes.

I just saw two cute & little pomeranian pups that Alexis would have liked to see. Wish i had a digital camera or camera phone.

On I-65 and it is all northbound. I am driving north on a normally southbound lane. Jealous, Mark? =)

Just testing to make sure it works. Probably wont have a title. =)

Hurricane Dennis

Since i live in Pensacola, Florida, i am evacuating. I have enabled this blog so i can update it from my phone. I'll give a quick status report here. Most likely on traffic, gas, and what not. Just quick posts.

Why this blog? Because i need the server that this site is on to not go down. My personal blog is hosted in Pensacola (at the college UWF) and if they lose power, its bye bye updates.

New Domain Name Works Now!!

So i did it. I got the domain www.defiradio.com from GoDaddy.com. They made it so easy and their console to manage my account is easy to use. Top notch guys, so if you're looking for a place to buy a domain name from, GoDaddy.com is it. And its cheap! =)

I have a temporary design up over at www.defiradio.com. Please tell me here or at defiradio.com - in the comments - which design you like more. I'm open to your suggestions/preferences.


I'm getting the music together for 11. Unfortunately the new setup isn't here yet. But we'll have it for 12. I promise! Please stay subscribe and stay tuned!

Odeo First Impressions

I was recently invited to the Odeo beta. I've been playing around with it and have decided to write up a little "First Impressions" thing. I wrote it as i went through Odeo the first time i logged in.


If you haven't heard of Odeo, its a website and a program that let's you subscribe to and download podcasts. Its goal is to make it easier for people to listen to podcasts.


Interested? Good! =) You can check out my first impressions of Odeo to find out more about it. =)

HOWTO Subscribe to Podcasts

Ben Taylor and I just finished up a HOWTO we have been working on. We started it before iTunes 4.9 came out, so iTunes 4.9 is not covered in it. We are putting the finishing touches on our iTunes 4.9 HOWTO so stay tuned!

For now, you can read HOWTO Subscribe to Podcasts. In it we tell you how to install the most popular podcatching software and how to subscribe to a podcast. Very helpful if you are not using iTunes 4.9. We feel its helpful even if you are using iTunes 4.9 so you can appreciate just how far podcasts have come since October 2004.


We hope you enjoy it and find it informative. If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, etc., feel free to contact us at defiradio AT gmail DOT com.


And if you like the HOWTO, please click here to Digg it.
