iPodlounge iPod photo review. A good balanced review of the iPod photo. I'd summarize by saying really beautiful screen, but the photo stuff is pretty lame.
For myself, my photos cause itunes to crash when it is trying to process them. It really doesn't like tif files and barfs on them as it trys to process. It actually creates bad thumbnails.
For big Jpegs, it appears to die on some of them, but there is no error diagnostic I can find. It just fails.
Without the photos though, it is a beautiful user interface. Very expensive, so it is truly the Volvo of music players. Get it if you have to have the latest, otherwise, the more pedestrian iPod 4G 20GB serves well and is about $300 vs. $400.
