iPod survival lessons

Selfridges--an upscale London department store--is set to offer to its customers who are apparently "baffled" by Apple's digital media player. The tutorial is roughly 40 minutes in length, and will cost attendees 65 for the session. A short distance away, customers are already attending workshops and sessions focusing on how to use an iPod, offered by Apple's Regent Street Store. The one-on-one sessions entitled "iPod Survival" will begin later this month, and will be available either in-store or via home-visits, according to a report from Techtree News. The lessons will cover topics such as basic iTunes and iPod usage, downloading podcasts, and transferring songs or videos.

    That's amusing, but I suppose using an iPod and iTunes can be a bit more complicated than setting a VCR so it doesn't blink 12:00. Some folks have trouble with that...

    Interesting. So there's a whole new group of Apple customers out there. Those who buy an iPod (or receive one as a gift), but who are not computer users. I hope they get a Mac to go along with their iPod. However...

    Maybe Apple should offer an "accessory" that is solely designed to make it easy for users to transfer music to iPods and make purchases via iTunes Music Store. It would have a CDRW and phone jack (and probably a few other connectors) and a place to plug in the iPod, and it would use the iPod's clickwheel and screen for control. A greatly simplified version of the iTMS interface would be operated through the iPod screen and connection would be via a modem dialing up a special 800 number (so that the user does not need to have internet access).

    An old Sony Walkman did not require the customer to have anything else, except the music. Perhaps the next step is an iPod "kit" that makes an iPod fully functional without the owner needing a computer, Mac or otherwise.
