Product description

Manufacturer's Description

With no moving parts, the iPod’s new touch-sensitive scroll wheel is less vulnerable to dust, dirt or sand and more durable. The touch-sensitive scroll wheel is designed to retains its crisp feel throughout the lifespan of your iPod. There’s even a clicker that makes a tiny clicking sound when the scroll wheel is moving.

Small though it is, the iPod packs a lot of storage. The number of songs it holds depends on the compression rate you choose. At a 160Kbps compression rate (the default setting for encoding MP3s in iTunes), 20GB equals approximately 4,000 songs, or about 400 CDs. At 128Kbps — the most popular compression rate people use for MP3s — 20GB is equivalent to approximately 5,200 songs, or about 520 CDs. That’s how big it is on the inside. And with that much space, you might also find yourself storing documents, files and applications on your iPod in FireWire disk mode.

iPod’s rechargeable lithium polymer battery gives you 10 hours of continuous playback. In a hurry to get it recharged? Fast-charge the battery to 80% of capacity in an hour, and get it fully recharged in three hours. FireWire charges your iPod battery whenever it’s connected to your Mac. So iPod automatically charges while you’re transferring your music.

With an industry-leading 20 minutes of skip protection, iPod keeps playing without missing a beat. iPod has a 32MB solid-state memory cache, meaning that it has no mechanical or moving parts. Skip protection works by continually preloading up to 20 minutes of music into the cache, so your iPod is not affected by sudden movements.

The 10GB and 20GB iPod models include a clip-on wired remote control that lets you fast-forward or rewind a track, play, pause and adjust volume using just one hand.
