Apple did not consult with us when they named Ping, Ping.

Tiny iPod

While it’s nothing new functionality-wise, the iPod nano is certainly one of the slimmest music players I’ve ever seen. In fact, it reminds me of a wee, premium chocolate bar.

I still kind of want one, although I could see using the thing becoming a problem for anyone with large hands. (Like, for instance, Shaq.)

An iPod question for any of you experts out there: How do I access my “other” space? I have the 4GB nano and I filled it to capacity today. Now I’m noticing that 83.5 MB is tied up in “other”! (Started out at 83.7 and I disabled the display of album artwork and it went down.) That could hold at least another complete album, so I kind of want to delete it. No games or album artwork stored on there, so I haven’t a clue what it could be. Paul or Ryan, do either of you have iPods?

I do. My other space on a 30GB is 340MB, for reference; I assume that stores things such as the artwork and operating system along with games, notes, etc. Not sure how or if that usage can be minimized.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
