[How-To] Get more from your iPod Battery

In one of my previous post, i had written about steps one can take to save mobile battery and make it go longer. However, as we become more technology oriented, saving the battery for longer playback time becomes a concern; iPod is therefore no different. In this post, i shall be talking about a few simple steps which one can take in order to get more juice out of his/her iPod battery.

  • When listening to Music, slide the HOLD switch to ON. This in turn disables power to your iPod’s controls which in turn means saving battery power.
  • Turn off the Equalizer: Go to Settings -> EQ-> Off. Equalizer settings definitely improves the sound quality but they do suck a lot of battery power as well.
  • Turn off the Backlight: Go to Settings -> Backlight -> Off. Switching the backlight to off also saves a lot of battery power.
  • Create your playlists in iTunes: We usually have a tendency to create our playlists using our iPod. Although, this is not a sin but it does take some juice of your iPod battery. So in order to save that precious battery juice create your playlists using iTunes application.
  • When not listening to iPod, set your iPod to sleep: This is one of the best tricks to get the best from your iPod battery. When you are not listening your iPod, keep the play/pause button pressed till it turns off. This is called putting your iPod to sleep.

Do comment and share your tricks on this. I promise to update them in this post 🙂

[How-To] Scroll to any point in a song on iPod

Usually i get email request from my readers asking for solutions primarily in the area of Windows/ Java/ AntiVirus/ Outlook etc. However, off late i have been getting email requests from readers querying about Apple iPod functionalities.
One such request has come from Mariana who wishes to know the process for scrolling to any point in a song on her newly bought iPod.

In order to scroll to any point in a song on your iPod, follow the steps mentioned below

Apple iPod
  1. From the Now Playing screen, press the Center button. A diamond symbol indicates the point in the song that is selected.
  2. Use the scroll wheel to go to any point in the song. The diamond symbol moves as you scroll, and the elapsed time and time remaining indicators change.
  3. The song continues playing from the point where you stopped scrolling. You may also press the Center button to continue playing.

Apple iPhone and iPod prices set to drop

Cleve Nettles from 9to5 reports that Apple is set to reduce the prices of iPhone and iPod models by as much as 100$ over the next 2 months.

Iphone and iPod

Cleve writes ” The price drops are likely to make some price spacing for the newer 3G iPhones that are expected to drop later this year – perhaps with the tablets.”

As per the website, the new prices are expected to be:

8Gb iPod Touch $199 8Gb iPhone – $299
16Gb iPod Touch $299 16Gb iPhone – $399
32Gb iPod Touch $399

Also, the clear indication that I am getting from reading the various blogs and News reports is that Apple is already working on the release of 3G iPhone and it may be priced around 499$.
