Die iTunes! I can finally get a iPod Shuffle
April 12, 2005
Found out through engadget that Martin Fiedler has created a little hack that allows me to drag-drop music files to an iPod shuffle, bypassing the need to have iTunes installed. To me, this is great news; the two reasons I haven’t gotten an iPod yet are that I’d need to use iTunes and it doens’t support WMA files. Martin’s hack effectively mitigates my first complaint and with my WMA collection shrinking (especially now that Windows Media Player 10 has built-in mp3 encoding support), the second complaint doesn’t matter much anymore either.
Now I just have to decide whether to get 512MB or 1GB. Ahhh… decisions, decisions 🙂
