The iPod is now compatible with both Macintosh and Windows. And Apple has revamped its battery life and controls, transforming the scroll wheel used by previous iPod generations into a "click wheel," which lets you scroll through songs and incorporates the Menu, Fast-Forward, Rewind, and Play/Pause buttons.
The Apple iPod, reffered to as; the worlds most popular digital music player. It got even better with the 4th-generation iPod. It's thinner, yet provides up to 50 percent more battery life. And, the Click Wheel, first introduced on the iPod mini, has been added to iPod, giving customers faster and easier access to their music collection. iPod continues to define the perfect digital music player for Mac and Windows.
A musical dream come true, the iPod offers huge capacity, letting you easily slip up to 5,000 songs into your pocket. And enjoy it wherever you go, in the car, on the treadmill, at the office, around the house.
But, guess what - iPod lets you do much more than listen to music. iPod provides you with up to 20GB of storage. True, you're likely to use a good portion of that storage capacity for your music and audio books, but you're bound to have a little space left over.
