RE: Why not iPod?

John,
If you guys make it accessible i.e. it will speak, a lot of blind people
will be happy, but you also have to make Itunes accessible as well, even
though there is an alternative program out there to replace Itunes, its
not that great. If you guys can make it work, I know a lot of blind
people who will jump up and down. I just hope you do a better job than
the programmers who made Tiger, the voice application for Apple. Its bad
to say the least!

Subject: Why not iPod?

OK, right off the bat, let me say that I despise Apple, Steve Jobs and
most of what they stand for. Ahem.

That said, is there any reason why the iPod isn't considered for a
RockBox port? It would seem that with a port of Linux running on the
thing, there should be enough info out there for a port.

As I scan the racks of even Walmart and see all the nifty accessories
that work only with an iPod, I have to admit that it would be a nice
host for RockBox. I'd LOVE to have a set of amplified speakers into
which my jukebox would simply snap, like those offered by several
different companies for the iPod.

I don't want to even appear to become an AppleDroid but OTOH, the
hardware is nice...

John
