The iPod Mini

The iPod mini, the smaller sibling to Apple’s 40 gig iPod, is a highly portable MP3 player about the size of a credit card.  It was the most popular gift in the 2004 Christmas season and sells for about $250. One key feature is the highly sensitive, intuitive control wheel.  One touch instructs the iPod mini on what to do next, whether it’s turning up the volume or paging through the player’s various menu trees.

iPod works with the Apple website, a separate e-commerce service which has quickly become the legal alternative to the latest round of peer to peer file sharing programs. Both songs and audiobooks are available for sample before purchase and download.

When building your personal music collection, MP3s can be accessed from your previously existing music folder, imported from an external CD collection or purchased from for 99 cents a piece.  Though initially limited in scope, Apple’s selection continues to grow daily.

To organize the sometimes unwieldy thousand song list on the mini, Apple provides playlist capability.  A playlist is a set of instructions created by the user via drag and drop technology.  Simply create a playlist, select the songs you’d like to hear, and drag them onto the playlist icon in the desired order.  The iPod mini will automatically sync the changes to the player the next time iTunes is started.


The best part?  iPods are fully compatible with both Mac and Windows.
