I can help you make the best possible purchase – one that will assure you’ve invested wisely and, even more importantly, one that will brighten the smile of that special someone whose “chomping at the bit” to use the wonderful technology iPods provide.
Just the Facts, Please!
Okay, first things first – What facts do you really need to know before looking for a good iPod sale?
- You need to know basically what an iPod is, and how it will be used.
As almost all older children and teenagers know, an iPod is the coolest MP3 player ever invented. While most people use the storage space on an iPod hard drive (up to 40 GB) to store music files, the palm-sized gizmo can also be used as an external hard drive for your computer. One special application is to use an iPod to store high-resolution digital pictures.
But let’s say, however, that your son or daughter (or some other lucky gift recipient) intends to plop in a couple of batteries, plug in a headset and embark upon an MP3 music feast for the ears. Did you know that an iPod with a 40 MB hard drive will hold more than 10,000 songs? That’s a lot of music! Of course, you’ll need to take a little time off for changing batteries -- about every 12 hours.
While many types of software are available for playing music on an iPod, a lot of folks use iTunes, which will operate on both Mac and Windows systems. Enthusiasts can download music from the iTune Music Store http://www.apple.com/itunes/store/ and then play it on their computer or the iPod. Most people transfer their MP3 music files to their iPod -- probably because it’s not really cool to walk around with your PC on your shoulder!
Okay, so you know basically how your would-be iPod owner plans to use the little gadget. And now -- because you’re so admirably thorough – you also need to know where you can find a good iPod sale on the Internet.
That’s the easy part! Just visit any of the links below and you won’t be disappointed. In fact, I’m sure you’ll find an iPod sale that will knock your socks off. So start clicking!
