    Hiya

    Im after an ipod, probably 20gig.

    How future proofed are they? I dont want it to be useless in a years time.

    Im looking at the itrip and a universal charger of some sort and a case. Are there any good deals around?

    Any help would be great
    Regards
    Danny

    They're as future-proofed if not more than any other digital audio player, in that they play both of the industry standard music file formats (ie mp3 and mp4) as well as several proprietary ones. iPods have been around since 2001 that do this, so these requirements aren't going to change anytime soon I expect, and any design/feature problems have been ironed out. They use either USB2 or FireWire connections.

    A plus point as you've obviously already noticed is the range of 3rd party accessories that are available. Here's a couple of places you can try for accessory deals:
    http://shop.ipodworld.co.uk
    http://www.sputnikshop.com

    Deals on iPods themselves are few and far between though. However, if you have educational connections (student, pupil, teacher, lecturer) you can get a discount.

    be warned poo-pods don't play WMA (windows media audio) and therefore you will have to wait for crap-tunes to convert every song on your pc if you used windows media to rip them originally. Something like an iRiver however, will play all these (inc also OGG - fantastic!), record/play fm radio, record from a direct analogue or digital optical input record your voice etc etc.
