    Autobiography of a Schnook

    Wow, I realized I haven't posted on iLounge in years....but hey... Just wanted to give a cheap, shameless plug to my new podcast. It's a podcast about...well, me. Why should you care? I...honestly don't know. I'm nobody special - I'm not a celebrity, politician, first responder, veteran...

    iPhone 5S suddenly draining battery

    A couple of weeks ago, just out of the blue, one day my iPhone 5S decided to go through the battery like nobody's business. We're talking with no apps in the background, going from a 100% charge before bed to 18% when I wake up six hours later. The obvious stuff: - Factory reset, setting up as...

    Podcast download prob PLUS ARCADE GAME PODCAST PLUG :)

    So my friend and I recently started Pie Factory Podcast (link in my sig), covering two arcade video games every week. We discuss our memories of these games as well as some strategies, quirks, and other aspects of gameplay. Having said that...one of our listeners is reporting that iTunes is...

    Podcast won't update

    So...I subscribe to a small handful (i.e. five or six) podcasts, and one of them hasn't updated in two months. I've been in touch with the guys who do the podcast, and they've tried tweaking their settings to no avail, and it's apparent that I'm the only iTunes user among their listeners that's...

    Podcast for Beatles fans....

    hey, all...I haven't posted in a while, so I figured I'd just share a podcast I really dig. It's called Fab 4 Free 4 All, and you can get it for free via iTunes. It's three guys from Long Island -- FM radio vets Tony Traguardo (if I'm not butchering the spelling) and Rob Leonard -- and...

    Songs will copy over, but information will not change!

    So, here's a wacky situation... My wife has a small part of her iTunes collection on her iPhone 4, using iOS 5.0.1. Now, I need to explain a few things...there are some songs on her computer that come from two different albums (actually the same album but two different versions), and on her...

    iPod Classic sync troubles - ERASES iPOD!

    Hey, all...here's the sitch... I have a 160-gig iPod Classic, had it for a couple of years...I use my MacBook 3,1 (Santa Rosa) to sync; the MacBook has 4 gigs of RAM, about 250 gigs of hard drive space out of 500 free (with my iTunes partition using only about 60 gigs of the 147 I set aside)...

    Custom podcast synching???

    First of all, yes, I add the "h" when appending a suffix to "sync," otherwise "syncing" would be pronounced "SIN-sing," and "synced" would be pronounced "sinst." So nyaa. Anyway....I did some searching both here and via Yahoo! (I don't use Google -- too Big Brother for my tastes) and couldn't...

    Ear buds comparable to Sony MDR-Vxxx studio monitor headphones?

    Okay...I was never a believer in ear buds, so I've always used a pair of Sony MDR-V2xx studio monitor headphones. Why? 1) They sound fantastic -- great frequency response with sharp, clear highs and lows; 2) the cans do a good job of blocking out sounds you don't want to hear while still...

    iPhone 4 will NOT stop automatically checking Yahoo! Mail

    So...my wife's iPhone 4 -- both before and after the latest update -- just refuses to NOT check Yahoo! Mail automatically. Settings --> Mail, Contacts, Calendars --> Fetch New Data: Push is set to "OFF." Fetch is set to "Manually." What else should I be checking?? I hate to have her phone be...

    iPhone 4 questions -- photos, custom ringtones, free bumpers

    iPhone 4 questions -- custom ringtones and free bumpers So....as of last night, my wife and I became iPhone 4 owners...we finally drank the Kool-Aid! When we went to the Apple Store a couple of weeks ago they were out, so we put our names on the wait list. We got e-mails a week ago from...

    FREE renaming software for Mac??

    Is there a free app for Mac that renames MP3 files based on their ID3 tags?? Sorry if this is commonly discussed, but I tried searching the forum and couldn't get anything but a "Invalid GET data" error. :(

    So...how does one copy playlists from iTunes to iPod without copying the actual tracks??

    How is the playlist stored on an iPod???

    Literally the day my iPod Video fried, I actually did a manual backup -- literally just dragged and dropped the contents of the iPod onto my hard drive. Thing is...I realize that now I have a new iPod, I have to re-build all my playlists. But is there a place on the iPod's hard drive where...

    Did I fry my 5G?

    Okay...so I decided to save money by simply upgrading my hard drive rather than getting a whole new iPod -- my 30-gig fifth-gen is full. Now, I have repaired my iPod before -- I successfully repaired my headphone jack last month -- so I felt okay in doing this...so I took the hard drive out and...

    Haywire with headphones...

    Hey, all...what do you make of this? My wife's 4th-gen iPod acts really strangely when she uses her Sony headphones on it. (Before you ask if she tried with the earbuds, earbuds really hurt her ears and she doesn't like to use them....in fact, she tossed them, now that I think of it...) The...

    Crash problem with Bejeweled

    So...I bought Bejeweled almost immediately when it came out...great way to pass the time on the Chicago L on the way home -- listening to tunes AND playing an addicting game... But something's been happening, and I saw someone else post about it...once in a while, the game completely freezes as...

    Dual-format iPod???

    OKay....so my 5G iPod is formatted for FAT32. I just got my first-ever Mac...which I'm absolutely smitten over! I'm LOVING this new MacBook!! In the two years since I got my iPod, have there been any developments (or hacks!) that allow the iPod to either be 1) dual-formatted, or 2) usable as...

    Duping the iTunes library with iPod contents...

    My wife asked me earlier if there's a way to make the iTunes library match exactly what's on her iPod -- basically, she has more songs in her iTunes library than on her iPod Color, and she wants a way to erase the extras easily. Is there such a way, or will she have to do this manually, or just...

    Yet another Sony Xplod user requesting help!

    [SOLVED!] Yet another Sony Xplod user requesting help! Hi there...first-time poster... Here's the deal...just got the 30-gig iPod Video. My car stereo is a Sony CDX-F5700, one of the Xplod models, and it has RCA inputs on the back -- one for front, one for back. So...when I connect my iPod to...
