iPod nano Screen Flaws Due to Large Size, Weak Coating

iPod naniSuppli's Vinita Jakhanwal reports:

"The successful launch of the latest in Apple's line of MP3 players - the iPod nano - has been marred by complaints regarding its display. Some users have noted cracks in the screen, a flaw that Apple says is limited to one tenth of 1% of all the nanos shipped so far....

"According to Apple, it is not a design issue. However, the display suppliers have not been informed of faulty display claims and no products have been short listed for a recall.

"The display is large compared to the size of the iPod nano at 3.5 inches by 1.6 inches by 0.27-inches. This could cause stress on the display.

"Furthermore, iSuppli's Teardown Analysis service revealed that the display module thickness is only about 0.095 inches, and there is almost no clearance between the frame surface and the front end of the LCD display. The structural strength of the display is enhanced by employing protection films, which might be weak because of the use of a vinyl chloride coating instead of a hard coating. All these factors potentially could be related to the reports of cracked displays."

Behind the Wheel with an iPod

The Wall Street Journal's Walter S. Mossberg says:

"Millions of people listen to music in their cars, and millions of people listen to music on Apple Computer's popular iPod music players. But the two don't mix easily. In fact, it is a real challenge to safely use an iPod in a car, keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel while navigating through your music.

"There are scores of products that attempt to solve this problem, ranging from simple in-car iPod mounting kits to more elaborate gadgets that recharge the iPod and connect it to a car's audio system via a cassette adapter, or an FM transmitter that routes the music through a vacant radio-station setting. Some of these devices also can use a cable that plugs the iPod directly into a built-in audio input jack, if your car is in the small minority of models that have such a jack, or if you have had an installer add one."

Tips

iPod: About the Battery Charge Status Icon

An updated Apple Knowledge Base article says:

"The battery icon on an iPod's screen indicates the state of the internal battery. If the iPod is awake a small version of the icon will be displayed in the upper right hand corner of the display. If the iPod is asleep while being charged, a larger version of the same icon will be displayed in the center of the screen. When an iPod is charging, the battery icon changes to a battery with a lightning bolt, and the progress bars on the icon animates to indicate that the battery is charging. If a lighting bolt doesn't appear in the battery charge status icon when you charge iPod, check the connections to your computer or iPod AC adapter."

iPod: Charging Icon Appears but not Recognized by Computer

An updated Apple Knowledge Base article says:

charging icon"When you plug your iPod into a power source, the charging icon appears - it's a lightning bolt over a battery. If the battery is fully depleted, you won't see an animated icon. Instead, you'll see the icon pictured below (even on a color screen). The icon indicates the battery is charging successfully, but it doesn't have enough charge to power up. When connecting an iPod with a depleted battery, it may take up to 30 minutes for iPod to have enough charge to turn on and be recognized by the computer and iTunes."

iPod: About Sleep, Deep Sleep, Hibernation, and Sleep Timer

An updated Apple Knowledge Base article says:

Sleep

When not playing music, iPod sleeps after a few minutes of inactivity. Sleep is the same as if you turned iPod off by pressing the Play/Pause button for a few seconds. To wake iPod from sleep, press any button and the iPod will wake quickly to the menu. By falling into sleep, iPod goes into a power conservation mode but can wake quickly.

If iPod sleeps while powered, the charging status appears on the screen. When iPod is not powered and sleeps, the screen is blank.

Deep Sleep

If the iPod or iPod mini is left in sleep for about 36 hours, it will fall into deep sleep. To wake iPod from deep sleep, press any button. To wake iPod mini from deep sleep press the Select button. When the iPod wakes from deep sleep, you will see the Apple logo displayed for a short period of time before the menu appears. By falling into deep sleep, the iPod goes into a power conservation mode that requires less power than sleep, but requires more time for the iPod to wake than sleep....

Hibernation

Some iPod models support a feature called hibernation. This allows the iPod to go into a power conservation mode after 14 hours of inactivity but resumes operation in the same state as when it was last used....

Sleep Timer

When playing music, iPod sleeps after the amount of time set in the "Sleep Timer" preferences. The default setting for this feature is to never sleep or Off. If you set the timer to go off after a certain amount of time, iPod sleeps after that time has lapsed. The preference is then reset to its default of Off. You will need to reset it to an amount of time if you wish it to go to sleep again....

Hold Switch

If you wish to have the iPod stay in sleep while it is in your pocket you should deactivate all the buttons by sliding the Hold switch on the top of the iPod to the center.

On their eye candy website, Miniot.com says that:

"Nothing matches the look and feel of nature. That's why we made the iWood, with love and dedication, from the finest wood. No two persons are alike, neither are two pieces of wood. But there's more that makes your iWood nano unique: a monogram engraved on top. And a message inside. To remind you of all that matters.

Like a good wine or whiskey, the iPod nano reflects your taste and personality. Your iWood nano makes it even more personal, with a monogram of choice engraved on a two line message inside the lid.

Griffin Announces iTrip for New iPods

PR: Griffin Technology Inc., announces iTrip for the new iPods.

New iTripNow compatible with all full sized dock connector iPods, including the newest 5th Generation iPod with video, the new iTrip follows in the tradition of Griffin's iTrip line, with superior performance and innovative features that make the iTrip the most popular iPod FM transmitter in the world.

The large, easy to read backlit LCD screen makes setting its digital tuner easy and intuitive. A convenient switch on the side of the iTrip makes it a breeze to select broadcast frequency. But you won't have to adjust the settings very often - iTrip remembers its settings for convenience. The compact, self-contained design makes controlling iTrip a snap, perfect for use in autos.

One of iTrip's innovative new features (something not found on any other FM transmitter) is selectable LX or DX modes of broadcasting, which allow you to adjust for the absolute best possible audio under real-world conditions. Even in large cities with lots of radio stations crowding the dial, iTrip's DX Mode delivers a background noise level below that of a cassette tape adapter, allowing the music to punch through cleanly. The results are stunning.

Another innovative feature gives you the ability to set the iTrip to either US or International tuning modes. International mode allows access to all available frequencies throughout the world. US mode limits tuning to those frequencies relevant to US stations. The result: no unnecessary scrolling through channels.

iTrip requires no batteries, drawing its power directly from the iPod, so there's never a power issue to silence your tunes.
