iPod Revolution

I've finally jumped in and joined the iPod Revolution. It's in it's fourth generation so I figure they've got it figured out by now. RadioOne killing off Y100 pushed me over the edge. Now I'm in control of my own music. I just got it last night so I haven't had a lot of time to play with it, but I'm already impressed. Apple knows how to market products. Everything in that tiny box is perfectly designed and well-packaged. They don't skimp on packaging material or the even the design of the box.

Setup and copying music to my 30GB iPod Photo was straightforward and simple. I used the included USB 2.0 cable to download all the music and charge the player at the same time. I dumped Outlook contacts onto the iPod and even a few photos so I can show off the nice color screen.

I plan to give it a full workout this weekend while I'm on the train up to NYC, but I don't see myself being anything but impressed. The next plan is to hook this into the stereo in my Mustang.
