Not by a long shot.

So... your suggestion is to take a lossy audio file, decode it, then re-encode it with a different lossy codec? That's a great way to get even less quality than you started with....

(Granted, if you still have access to the original CD from which the Ogg file was ripped, you could re-rip that CD and encode it in whatever proprietary, patent-encumbered codec the iPod can play... or you could spend $100 less and get a Neuros that plays Oggs and MP3s, and has a built-in FM radio transmitter.)

quote:
The iPod works seamlessly with iTunes.
Well of course. They're both created by the same company.

quote:
You can't talk about the iPod without talking about iTunes.
Good monkey. Extra food pellet for you tonight!

quote:
iTunes is great and also comes with the most legal freedom that I have seen.
Except the freedom to share my songs.

And the freedom to listen to other people's songs.

And the freedom to avoid paying money to the RIAA.

And the freedom to use Linux.

And....

quote:
You can burn a song unlimited times and even legally share your music over a network.
Oh really?

If I buy a Metallica song from iTMS and decode it and re-encode it to MP3 format, I can then go ahead and stick it in a KaZaa shared-music folder? And the RIAA can't sue me?

Boy, are you in for a rude shock one of these days.... [shake head]

Seriously though, I've heard good things about the Rio Karma (MP3, OGG, FLAC, and more?)

...from the cnet page:
Editor's note: More than a few Karma users, including some at CNET.com, have experienced hard drive problems or even failure after several months of use.
Might be a good idea to search for a slightly used 3G ipod instead, people are selling theirs cheap so they can get the new click wheel model. Or, better yet, buy a new one with a powerbook and get the cram&jam rebate - can't beat a $70 ipod [Smile]

Yay! Give a company 1500 dollars for something that you can buy from another company for 1100 and get 200 dollars back! w00t!

So Rio suffers from "bad Karma?" [Roll Eyes]

You say that now, but if it comes to pass that Windows is the only operating system that can play your music, I suspect you may think differently.
