    Yes, but that doesn't always work. Depends on how well the software is made. Sometimes an inactive window will pop up in your face for a really inane reason. And sometimes an important window that requires user input (like an installation) will stay behind your other windows.

    MagicISO is a great little app. Very simple, especially by windoze standards.

    another good one. iPodRip seems to stumble on overly large transfers.

    Automator Plug in help

    Go into Safari preferences, general tab. Change the option at the bottom to "in a new tab in the curent window" Firefox has a similar option in the Tabs section of preferences
  5. Sounds like the old iBook logic board problem. I'd give AppleCare a call or take it to a retail store.

    iPods with radio on them

    Knowing Apple. they could do it without making the device any larger, but I agree with Joshua. When do you want to listen to FM when you aren't near another device like your car sterero or a house stereo? Excersizing is the only real example I can think of. And personally, while excersizing, I like to have more control over what I'm listening to.

    Use a program like iPodRip to get your music off the iPod first if you still want to restore it.

    Probably not difficult, it could be done, but if that's what you want to do, there's a zillion tiny little FM radios. I think Oakley even has a pair of sunglasses with one built in :wink:

    new iPod battery: Apple, or 3rd party?

    The only real argument for getting the battery replaced straight from Apple is that it will be covered for 60 (or maybe 90) days from the repair in the event that the battery doesn't work to your liking. The turnaround time is fast though. Expect to have your iPod back within 4-5 business days.

    1 iPod, 1 Mac, and 2 PC's

    Well Joe, unfortunately, in order ot keep your podcasts in sync, you must have uutomatic updating on, and the only way to prevent this from erasing music is to have the same music and podcasts subscriptions on all your computers. Looks like you're gonna have to use Juice or another third-party method of doing this.

    No, the iTrip is an FM transmitter for playing your iPod through your stereo using an FM signal. I doubt we'll ever see radio on the iPod. That market's already oversaturated.

    yeah, they usually never update previous generations of software when a new iPod comes out

    A very valid point. Apple's known for steering away from anything that will detract from the user's experience, but I see no harm in having an option such as this in the advanced tab. It is a very niche request, but one that can be useful in the right situation.

    Oh, that's classic, haha. Whatever will Microsoft Bill think of next? Oh wait, that's right. R&D = Rob & Duplicate

    I think it's all in an effort to keep the software simple. Average Joe would be confused by too many options. They have a little OS called Windows for that :wink:
