    Hej Adam,
    You explained that the itunes klip playing didn’t work so well with Safari…
    I did it in Safari anyway and got the grey box – I have quicktime pro so I saved it – it works fine.
    Thanks for a great show.

    Is a great Recording device..but its not out in stores yet

    Another griffin product. It’s an iTrip that plugs in through the dock connector, and it supports the iPod 5th Gen :)

    Neither of those products say anything about recording sound directly onto a 5G iPod. The product specs only mention FM and remote control. Nice products, but still no recording.

    Thanks for the mention of Andrew Escobar’s site, tried the Front Row ‘how to’ worked great.

    I spoke with representatives from Griffin and Belkin at the recent Podcast Expo and they both indicated they would be releasing devices to support recording on the 5G iPods in January, presumably at MacWorld Expo.

    Hey Adam, many thanks for mentioning MacIdol, I am really chuffed and am sure the other members will be too.

    Love the podcast, keep up the great work.. and keep on geeking!

    The limitation in recording for the older iPods was in the software because you can install linux for iPod and get around it.

    The European music store contest has been won by the downloading of a Motzart song.

    Thanks for the inside tip!

    Jason your dead right however the iFm does have a recording button and the preivous iFM allowed for recording onto the iPod so i think its safe to assume that when released the new iFm will have it also

    I like the computer information, but that was an awful song at the end of the show!!! Enough with the bad Christmas music.
