So I picked up a 10GB iPod, brought it home and plugged it into the new G4 I got recently. iTunes launches and bingo transfer all my music to the iPod without me having to do a thing. What amazing technology!<br><br>I do have a question though. Initially the iPod shows up on the desktop, but then after iTunes has launched, it disappears from the desktop. Why is that? And how do I get it to stay on the desktop so I can transfer non-music files to it for example. Does it have to be in FireWire target mode or whatever that is? Better check the settings on the iPod I guess and finish reading the booklet.<br><br>Then I also got some Pro Speakers, only $37.99 from OWC. They sound pretty decent, now to get the iSub. Going to buzz down to the Apple store here in San Diego today and pick one of those up. <br><br>I bought the iPod from the company where I work (at cost), ordered around 1 PM Thursday, had it in my hands before 9 AM on Friday. Can't say enough about online shopping, what great service.<br><br>Speaking of Apple stores, I was looking at the list of Apple stores and including the new ones that are opening here in California, Southern California now will have 10 Apple stores. Yeah, go ahead and salivate. <br><br>
No, Canada has no stores. Apple Canada has historically been in shambles. I would like to think there are signs of this changing. There has been a great deal of activity in the job postings in the last year. It would appear there has been some significant "house cleaning" and they are trying to rebuild from the ground up. These things take time. <br><br>We do have a few small but excellent Apple resellers but an Apple store would make a very nice addition. I have been fortunate to visit the store in Soho and Buffalo so I know what I am missing here.<br><br><br><br>
Congrats on the iPod! I love mine! I have the original 5GB one...would love to have the 20GB!<br><br>We have no Apple Store here either..closest one is 2 hours away. Our city/county is in the process of merging and then will be the 16th largest city in the U.S. according to what I have heard. Perhaps then we can get an Apple Store.<br><br>But then again, we do have a local mac store here, just down the street from me....but they always run out of stock, even their display stuff. So that's a bummer...<br><br>

Not to rub it in but there are two Apple Stores here both about eight miles from where I live.<br>A CompUsa two miles away with an Apple Rep on weekends<br>A MicroCenter three miles away which has a great Apple dept.<br><br><br>
The closest one to me is about 30 minutes away in San Diego. Then there are two others to the north of me about 50-55 minutes or so away, in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. Then if you go further north into the LA metro area, I guess there would be another 7 Apple stores around up there. The only other one I have been to besides the San Diego store is the one in Glendale. <br><br>
