This past weekend, I was going to update my generic, cheap MP3 player's contents, since I had just recently received and ripped my latest CD purchase of Finnish Symphonic Metal music (http://www.amazon.com/Highest-Hopes-Best-Nightwish/dp/B000ANHGHC/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4/102-5153874-7918518?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1174912936&sr=8-4 ) using iTunes.My generic player had been full of Angry German Pop Metal ("stomp-grrrr") music (http://www.amazon.com/Glaubeliebetod-Oomph/dp/B000ELL1KI/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2/102-5153874-7918518?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1174913470&sr=1-2) and Angry German Techno Metal ("stomp-grrrr-beep") music (http://www.amazon.com/Reise-Rammstein/dp/B0002XDODU/ref=sr_1_4/102-5153874-7918518?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1174913402&sr=1-4).I hadn't done anything with iTunes since before I bought the Mac Mini, mostly because I was happy listening to my set of Angry German Music for a long time.But it appears that in iTunes, there's not an easy way to simply send the tunes to my generic MP3 player as it just behaves like another volume, but iTunes expects an iPod or one of a very short supported list of devices that impersonate an iPod.So I'm gonna get an iPod Shuffle. Not being content to pay Apple's or anyone else's full price, I've gone to Amazon and found a refurb'd unit for $65 (plus $4 to ship), plus the AC adapter and the car power adapter. (I still have my Belkin FM transmitter, so I'll keep using that.)So I'll be letting you know how this works for me, as opposed to what I was doing months ago with Windows and my generic MP3 player. I may figure out this Apple cult thingy yet.Duck
