My new ipod arrived yesterday and what a wonderful thing it is! Yeah of course you can listen to music, but to me it is the other things that make the difference. First and foremost I have subscribed to a handful of BBC radio podcasts, these are automatically downloaded to my PC from the BBC website each time they are published (in most cases weekly) and whenever I plug in the ipod, it automatically adds them. With the 4 podcasts I have chosen (Radio 4 and 5 mostly) I will get about 2 hours a week of radio programs for free.
In some of the spare space I have all of the photographs from my PC on there and the next step is to add some movies.
The movies are a bit of a pain though as I have to convert them into another format, but I think it will be fun when I get it going.
A multimedia extravaganza in my pocket!
