I do not often take time to thank people for their Web efforts. Your article(s) on outliners deserve kudos. I do not know how, but I strongly invite you make efforts so your Web site is better known.
Wow, I look forward to these articles every month. After each issue I try something new to see how it fits in with my workflow. I’m still surprised that there is not one outliner that will do it all but the way these articles spell out all of the features it is clear why.
Thanks very much for all this work. The quality of this series is incredible.
I got this with my new 4G iPod. My experience wasn’t as pleasant as yours.
I took mine back. It took 25 minutes to read a 512 MB card and completely discharged the iPod. Since I now mostly use 1 GB cards, it is totally unsuitable. It is a good idea, but a very poorly executed media reader.
I’ve used the iTrip for my 4th-generation iPod and it works just fine. Figuring out how to set the frequency was the tricky part (due to the fact that I rarely read manuals—doh!); but, once you get the hang of it, it’s very simple. I commute through the Chicago metro area. For the most part, I can set it to 95.5 and get a good reception. The sound quality is on par with decent FM radio stations, so I am very happy with the product. It’s great at parties, too, since I’m virtually taking my entire music library with me and I can play it on the boombox, although the sound quality is not CD-quality.
Performance will definitely vary depending on your location and other factors, but I’ve tried it in my Civic, my friends’ Altima and Maxima, my home stereo, and my buddy’s boombox. So far, they all worked fine. Great purchase for $35!
Thank you so much! I have been waiting for a review on the iTalk from Macworld, or MacAddict, or anyone for that matter. I wanted to buy one to start creating an audio journal and to record some personal interviews for a book I’m writing. This review really helped in making that decision. I wasn’t sure about file size, how the file was stored, or if the quality would be good enough. I really appreciated your audio samples. They made the difference in my decision. I completely agree with Patrick S. This is one of the best reviews I have ever seen for any product. Well done!
The site is nice enough to make me wish I had a Macintosh so that I could participate. As a multiple PC owner I have to just snatch a few images and make off with them.
I enjoy the monthly ATPM transmission so very much. I really appreciate the time and effort your staff puts into preparing the issues. Thank you so much!
