Me too!

I would love wireless earplugs for my ipod. One big bonus would be that I would no longer need the clutter (and extra cable) of the remote control - if there were no wires, I could just take the ipod out of my pocket and use its own controls. That would be great.

I think bluetooth uses a lot of power though, although I have noticed that Apple has now got a longer lasting battery in the newest ipods so maybe that’s not a problem.

Imagine yourself and a friend enjoying the same music from just one iPod.

Unfortunately, Apple may imagine this and decide it’s too risky. Wouldn’t want the RIAA to to think we’re not paying for some music. And imagine a Bluetooth recorder, that picks up Bluetooth audio and converts it to MP3 on the fly.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great idea. However, I’ve asked Mrs. Claus for a 40gig 4g iPod for Christmas this year… if the Bluetooth iPod gets launched at MacWorld in January, I’ll be wishing I’d waited until my birthday! (February).

This is a totally crap situation isn’t it? What’s the difference between my girlfriend and I sitting in a park listening to music off my iPod or both of us listening to the same music off the hi-fi at home? There is none - well, apart from the fact that my home doesn’t have grass and trees and lakes and other “parky” stuff in it.

I don’t think that’s a problem, Bluetooth is a short-range transmission.

Anyway, regardless of future iPod developments, I hope your Christmas wish is granted. The ‘pod is a great MP3 player, I wouldn’t be without one now.

Oh yes, someone heard my prayers. It’s here at last…

I definitely agree. Now that the iPod with video support has come out, it has sparked my interest, but honestly, I love my 3rd generation iPod. I just don’t like the idea of the clickwheel. I really want to modify it so there is the photo innards so I’d have the extra battery life and album art. I love album art.
