    they're only available for the new iPods, even though the Dock Connector iPods have the same hardware support for them. WTF, why can't I get shuffle songs as a menu option on my 3G when all they had to do was change a few lines of code to make it happen :madfawk: it's the stupid shit like this that makes me so mad at apple sometimes... they develop a powerful, highly extensible hardware platform and then choke it with limited software updates so you end up buying new hardware just to get the ease-of-use of the SOFTWARE set on the new machine

    fuck you apple :madfawk:

    you tell me, you're working for them :p :o

    seriously though, why would you fuck someone that bought $500 in hardware from you less than a year ago... I bought a 30GB as a going-back-to-school splurge for myself... three weeks later they release the 40GB, and now less than 1 year later they fuck everyone with a 3G by disallowing them to access the improved software features.

    Fucking hell!

    not only that, but every time I download an iPod update I invariably have issues with getting it to work :mad:

    My iPod Mini was looking forward to the one-click Shuffle.

    Read Before You Install iPod Updater


    iPod Updater 2004-07-15 includes iPod Software 3.0 for use with iPods with a Click Wheel. iPod Updater 2004-07-15 also includes the latest software versions for iPod mini and the third generation iPod.


    With iPod Software 3.0, you can:



    Shuffle Songs with one click (using the Shuffle Songs item in the main menu)

    Create multiple On-The-Go playlists

    Delete songs from On-The-Go playlists

    Select reading playback speed for audiobooks

    Hear audible click user interface feedback in headphones

    Charge via USB connection

    Enjoy improved playback performance




    For more information about iPod, go to http://www.apple.com/support/ipod.


    iPod Updater 2004-07-15 contains the same software versions as iPod Updater 2004-04-28 for all other iPod models.


    iPod 3.0 Software is not compatible with other models of iPod, including original scroll wheel and touch wheel iPods, and iPod mini. :rant:


    iPod Software 2.2 and iPod Software 1.2 should not be used with iPod with Click Wheel.
