[Faulty Products]
I finally decided to get hip and get an iPod today. I ended up getting he iPod+hp sold at Radio Shack. Unfortunately, I'd like to say it's a cool, fun device, but I'd never know because it's a freakin' nightmare trying to connect to the PC. A word of warning for Windows users out there: the iPod is not ready for prime time. After viewing the forums on various sites, it seems I'm not the only one who has big problems even getting the damn computer to connect to the iPod without crashing. I'd avoid this toy until Apple and their OEMs make it more reliable and compatible with standard PC configurations.

I like the way iTunes takes over the system when a CD is inserted. I had some other things set up, but like most Apple products, the damn thing thinks that it can usurp control from other processes without any permission. Yet another reason why this product isn't ready for prime time.
