This was definitely and unexpected gift. For my birthday, my wife got me an Ipod. She mentioned that it was some gym deal or something but when it came she gave me a little back and lo and behold; an Ipod. The size is 30 gigs and it’s a second generation black. I use handbrake to convert my vids to mp4 and its been working out really well. I also use amarok with my Ipod. My wife also uses the same amarok on my laptop because amarok can manage two ipods with the same library. Itunes? No thank you.
