  1. In all seriousness, hopefully this fixes the volume issue when synching your iPod while in full screen visualizer mode. Doing this turns the system volume down to about half its previous volume, but the volume slider doesn’t move. The only way to get it back to full volume is a reboot.

    G4 Cube 450 MHz. (Duh!)
    Tiger 10.4.6

  2. (Of course I realize I need to get a life . . . . . )

    It is my imagination, or does each new iTunes update change the behavior of the visualizer? ? ?
    Sure seems like it changes.

    MDN (Non word??) – hes

  3. There will definitely be an accessory like a band for your legs where you could put this tiny thing and still use it without having to buy the nike shoes. No wonder Apple charges you for this piece; and nike like any other company gave a nice idea to Apple and let Apple make the money.
