Just wondering, if there is any interest in having woodworking
videos on iPods and similar devices. Perfect for the shop - small,
light and portable. I know some folks have TVs in the shop but
is for entertainment or for instruction?
Interested in comments. I'm doing some "back of the envelope"
market analysis for myself. So any comments are appreciated.
I would add something else to this reality... How many of those
"visually challenge" folks have an iPod? They probably don't even know
what it is.
Sorry but this idea is good for garbage.
Also, I'm not sure I'd want a sensitive $400 piece of electronics in my
shop, which is filled with spinning metal bits, sharp edges, precarious
drops, hard floors, and sawdust everywhere.
It's an interesting concept, but I'm not sure how practical it would be,
Thanks much to all who posted. Without out something to
actually show people, I'd guess most here are not enthusiastic
about the idea of a portable video player in the workshop.
Appreciate the comments tho, again thanks!
To answer one question: people have provided hacks
for using iPods with Linux. Tho, Apple has yet to
provide an iTunes for Linux which would be so much
I heard of an iTunes workalike for Linux just the other day...
It was on sourceforge, I think. A quick look shows:
1. Allows you to share audio files with iTunes users on MSWxx & Mac:
2. Allows synchronizing your iPod w/your (linux) computer (and other stuff):
3. Same thing, platform independent (java) app:
4. Some think their iPod is more useful if it is _running_ linux?!:
