For a Christmas firmware update for the iPod, I would love to see the following:
- stand alone Party Shuffle on the iPod itself. All relevant info is stored on the iPod datastores, so it shouldn’t be that big a deal… right?
- fix the clicker settings so they’re saved on the 4th gen iPods. Resetting them everytime the iPod goes into deep sleep is annoying
- keep the headphone jack enabled when connected to iTunes. I actually like using the iTunes UI to control the iPod, but still listen through the iPod itself
- fix itunes so that it ejects the ipod on an XP system hibernate or shutdown. I’m tired of being told to run chkdsk and losing info because iTunes insists on keeping files open when they’re not actually being used, and munging them on a shutdown.
Thanks for your consideration and remember, November is the deadline.
