Question for I-Pod owners and I-tunes.

Question

cliffy

Here is the short version of my questions.

About a year ago I bought my wife a 2GB I-Pod Nano and she loves it. She has very different taste in music so I dont use it very much...and she thinks I will lose it....so its sorta off limits.

She wants to get me a IPod for my birthday...but we have questions about having two Ipods and only one computer. My main question is this....can I down-load music from her I-tune account...these would be songs she has already bought and they are stored on our computer? Also, would I be able to download songs from her I-tunes account onto my I-Pod or would that just screw things up?

Someone told us that I would have to open my own I-tune account and we couldnt download from each other's account..etc. Thanks for any info.

Cliffy.

there are directions on the itunes website on how to use more than one Ipod off of one version of iTunes.

you can manage your music on her itunes account. in the itunes, there is a Music Library, where all the music is located. you can create a playlist for you machine, or multiple playlists in Itunes and (here is the Key part) when you plug in your ipod, select the option to manually manage the music on your ipod, that way you can select the playlists that go onto your ipod, she can do the same on her ipod. My wife has a 4 gig, I have a 20, my library is about 32 gigs... Get a portable external harddrive to back up all your music..... I know this is really short, but to answer you question, yes you can run two (I think maybe more) ipods out of the same itunes list. and yes you will be able to use her music from itunes.....

Hope this helps, I know it is not extremely detailed, but when you plug your new ipod into the computer, it will ask you if you want to automatically update it or manually, select manually manage it, and you will be fine.

Not knowing how much music you were gonna use or need, but I don't think there is much difference in price between the 4 gb nano and the 30 gig ipod.....

There are rumors on "google" where there are free programs that'll allow you to work around using i-Tunes all together.

I spent the better part of yesterday searching around their web-site and I couldnt find the answers to my questions....and now I just double checked and I see there is a FAQ section that did answer my question. Wasted a few hours yesterday....found it in just a few minutes today...GO figure.

Thanks for all the info guys....I think I will enjoy the new toy.

Just bought my youngest a 4GB Ipod for $180 something. Was talking to a neighbor tonight and he bought an off brand 8GB that plays movies also at Costco for $140! I'd check out Costco. And, yes, both my boys use one Itunes account.

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
