I know I'm light years behind the curve but does anyone use an iPod?  I like listening to 60's music and quite fancy having a dabble at downloading.

Hi Clive, I have an Ipod....easy to use IMHO

Have a look at  albums called the Boat that rocks and 101 pirate radio hits  ;) for 60s music.

I use the iPod integrated into my iPhone.  Once you've got iTunes up and running, it's very straightforward, Clive.

My iPod is the best gadget I've ever owned.  I rarely use it for listening to music but it's great for listening to downloaded radio broadcasts and the Harry Potter audiobooks.  The video quality is acceptable to me too, and I often convert videos to watch on it.  Treat yourself, Clive; you won't regret it :) .

Use it everyday, Clive. Just invest in better headphones than the ones Apple supply.

Me neither. The Bose in-ear are very good, the on-ear noise cancelling ones are even better. :)

I don't like things in my ear, so could never get on with the 'bud' type earphones.  You're tempting me with those Bose ones again.  ;D

It must have been one of the first so I wonder if I should get a more up-to-date one anyway?  :dunno:

I own a 120GB one-pod, but seldom use it for playing music - I have a rather nice sound system for that kind of thing.  Where the one-pod really has proved indispensable is during my stays in hospital, when I've finally got around to watching a lot of the films that have somehow found their way onto my hard drive recently.

The only problem came during my last stay, when the ward nazi wouldn't let me charge it up because it hadn't got a little green sticker on the charger.  It was probably the medication to blame, but I may possibly have said something uncharitable to the ugly, fat, lesbian bitch as a result.
