"Same old Nano"on by m_chan1
Pros - Updated software
- Simple and easy to use user interface
Cons - Updated software that should have been included in the beginning!
- Lousy earphones!
- Music quality is still so-so!
- Still relatively pricey!
- Limited capacity to 16Gb!
- Lacks support for FLAC file format!
Summary Except for the software update and a video camera, it technically hasn't changed much!
- Music quality still isn't that great (esp if you use GOOD earphones)!
- Competitors player have better music quality esp FLAC support at relatively lower prices (and higher storage capacities)!
- Nothing new to write about!
"bad software design"on by pjcamp
Pros Small, keeps the fanboys happy
Cons Implements Jobs' no-buttons fetish; riddled with mode errors; software forgets where you left off
Summary Each control has multiple functions. This means you are forever backing up to undo the thing you didn't intend but which was controlled by the same button that controls the function you did intend to do. Desperately needs a power switch. It tries to guess whether or not you want the power on and mostly fails. So any time you turn the power off, you generally have to do it twice. This is true even if you have the hold switch engaged as the Apple software will ignore your clearly expressed wish to keep the power off -- you put it on hold, didn't you? And why should power off require two actions in the first place -- sleep + hold? If, as with me, you use the thing to listen to audiobooks, you will soon find an option in iTunes to remember the place where you left off. Trouble is it doesn't work. Sometimes it will remember your place, but only if you do absolutely nothing else in the interim, and occasionally not even then. You cannot, for instance, go listen to something else for a minute and then come back. It will lose your place. You cannot install new media and then go back to listening to your book -- the moment you sync with iTunes it resets all your bookmarks to zero. How hard is it to set a flag and leave it? All of these issues have been part of the iPod experience since the very beginning. No one at Apple ever bothers to debug anything once it is in the market. In the end, this is typical Apple product -- flashy, stylish, if you're 16 lets you pretend to be a genius, but in the core software functionality it is half baked and riddled with programming errors. It just doesn't do what it is supposed to do very well. It is one long sequence of minor irritations that add up to major frustration.
