When I got the HP Compaq C700 notebook it came with a free Apple iPod. I installed Ubuntu on my Compaq C700 notebook. Since there isn’t any iTunes for Linux, i wanted to know how to be able to rip my audio CD’s, convert them to MP3 files and transfer them to the Apple iPod. When I tried to Google for help, I was able to get bits and pieces of information on how to do it. This weekend, I decided to write a how to about it to provide a step by step procedure on how a Ubuntu user with an iPod can do it.
When Apple came out with the first generation of iPod nano, I love the form factor and the slim design. I think it was awesome and the sweet spot for a music player design. Then Apple changed the design radically to a squarish iPod Nano which I think sucks. But now the newest breed of Apple’s iPod Nano is GORGEOUS! They brought back the previous design (great job Steve!).
