Re: Battery level on Ipods.

-FLACs should play fine at any bitrate, as they're much less cpu intensive
than Vorbis and MP3.
-There's no need to read the iTunes database really, as we have our own
format, with an automatic updater and everything.
-By "USB support is flaky" he means the iPod boots into Apple's Disk Mode.
It works fine, it just isn't in Rockbox at the time.
