    ok, my gizmo arrived today (yay, even though at 2am it had barely been scanned in in Shanghai, weird).

    It is currently doing its update thing (which is taking a while), but I have a few questions.

    Right now I have it hooked up via Fire Wire to my G4. Does that firewire charge it as well as data or does only USB 2.0 charge it while data linked?

    Also, which is faster, USB 2.0 or FireWire? This update thing has taken damn near 30 mins so far.

    Now i just have to figure out how to keep from being completely OCD about keeping the back polished. I should have bought a cover, but I dont know what to get...

    3. Which cover should I get? I just want general protection. Nothing leather or hard plastic, I'd prefer something form fitting. Suggestions and experience please.

    Thanks! :wavey:

    great great great, thanks.

    Anyone in Houston know what is a good FM channel for the modulator? It seems as if there is something bleeding in to everything.

    Jay-Z with static-y tejano bleeding over it isn't appealing

    Firewire is faster and will charge.

    If you are going iSkin, I would wait for the debut of their new one:

    The Radtech Pod Sleeve is another good sleeve which I have now:

    or you can get one of the podskinz which may be my next purchase:

    I have an agent 18 cover for my mini and doesn't take away from the original look of it.

    I do not know about the firewire-usb debate cause my computer is still running USB 1.1 and let me tell you, It sucks and its so slow!!!!!!! I have a 40 gig iPod with the iSkin-Ghost case. I like it. It gives all around protection, and has a little flap that covers the dock connector.
