The Apple iPod "mini" squeezes all the best features of iPod into a case weighing just 3.6 ounces. It's smaller than any cell phone and features an anodized aluminium case that resists stains and scratches. Like its (slightly) bigger brother, iPod mini gives you over 25 minutes of skip protection and lasts up to 8 hours on a single battery charge. All the features of iPod are still under your thumb. Apple engineers moved the iPod buttons under the wheel. The iPod mini Click Wheel gives you the enhanced durability and sensitivity of the iPod Touch Wheel, with buttons underneath. The Click Wheel takes best advantage of miniscule space and lets you scroll single-handedly though 1,000 songs from your iTunes music collection.
System requirements are simple: the iPod for Mac requires a Macintosh with built-in FireWire and Mac OS X v10.1.5 or later (Mac OS X v10.3 recommended). iPod for Windows requires a PC with built-in FireWire or USB 2.0 port or a Windows-certified FireWire or USB 2.0 card and Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4) or Windows XP Home or Professional.
iTunes 4 lets you organize your music on your Mac or Windows PC and automatically transfer it to iPod mini. Whether youve ripped your CD collection to mp3, bought music from the iTunes Music Store or made your own track with GarageBand, you can take it with you wherever you go. Your iPod mini includes both a FireWire and a USB 2.0 cable for high-speed transfer from your Mac or PC. In fact, you can move an entire album from your computer to your iPod mini in seconds flat. With the industrys only true Auto-Sync, your iPod mini is always up-to-date, mirroring the latest changes youve made in iTunes. And if your collection on your computer is bigger than iPod mini, you can let iTunes automatically choose a selection of songs to fill it up.
Behind the Click Wheel of your iPod mini await features that make it the worlds best digital music player. Listen to your music as you fall asleep, and wake up with music or an alarm. Store a copy of your contacts, calendar and to-do lists on your iPod mini. Or keep anything from store restaurant reviews to nightlife guides, and news articles to exercise routines right at your fingertips. iPod mini also includes four fun games you can play anywhere, a feature youre sure to appreciate the next time youre standing in line or waiting for someone. You can even play your music as the soundtrack to Music Quiz, Solitaire, Brick and Parachute.
The iTunes Music Store features hundreds of the latest and greatest audiobooks which sync with your iPod mini as easily as music does. And iPod mini bookmarks where you pause, and remembers even if you listen to music at the gym.
There's also a pile of cool optional accessories like the elegant docking system, sophisticated "in-ear" headphones, convenient remote or the great armband carrying strap.
