.... for no other reason than he is sick of me whining about the stereo in my car (mini Ipod can be played through any FM reciever using a special gadget). Obviously I'm thrilled to bits with this spontaneous treat, but now I need to get some tunes on it.

I know the site I'm getting them off but want some recommendations for tunes.I like pretty much any sort of music apart from Thrash metal and tinny dance music, IYSWIM... Have you got any new(ish) albums or downloads you love ? I've got 4GB to fill so all suggestions are welcome !!!!!

James Blunt "Back to Bedlam" when you're in a melancholy mood. The Hal one is good for driving on a sunny day.

Can you buy a connector thingy for an ordinary iPod? DH hits 40 soon and would be a good pressie.

its called an i trip and you just plug into top of ipod and tune it in to a radio station , think my bro got his one on ebay for about 10 or 20 pounds
HTH

yoyo, I think it only works on the mini ipod, and you have to buy it online cos i think it is unlicensed here in the uk......

I'm a retro groove at the moment and enjoying Pink Martini's Hang On Little Tomato, and the remastered Manhattan Transfer's Pastiche.
Neither of these could be described as remotely thrash-metally or tinny.
My other favourites are Divine Comedy and Guy Chambers' and Sophie Hunter's forthcoming The Isis Project looks good too.
And St Etienne have a new album out....

Yeah, they're only about £20 - £30 new. But I don't think they're terribly, ummmmmmmmmmm legal here in the UK. Excellent gadget tho

a guy at work bought one lst week from this country . ipod world or something similar. he def got it in this country though

You're right, the iTrip isn't legal in the UK and you "agree not to use it in the UK" when you buy one.

Yeah, right

NomDePlume Mon 20-Jun-05 12:34:39

Lol ! Rest assured I'll only be using mine when in licensed countries....

SoupDragon Mon 20-Jun-05 12:39:16

Oh yes, us too Well we would if only we had an iPod mini to go wih it - DH lost his!

I assume it's something to do with the frequency it broadcasts on.

NomDePlume Mon 20-Jun-05 12:42:09

i suppose it's illegal for the same reason as Pirate Radio stations.

i'd love an ipod mini - anyone know where i can get a cheap one?!

NomDePlume Mon 20-Jun-05 12:51:56

got mine from Amazon.co.uk. But you can buy them on Ebay for less, some are brand new and boxed too

desperatehousewife Mon 20-Jun-05 12:52:57

do you reckon it's safe to buy electicals from ebay?

NomDePlume Mon 20-Jun-05 12:53:32

I think it's ok so long as you choose a seller with good % feedback

NomDePlume Mon 20-Jun-05 12:54:04

we've bought a few brand new electricals from Ebay, all have been fine.

So you can buy them but not use them legally. Sound quality depends on frequency that you've tuned it in to then?

one more question - which product does anyone recommend on this site to go with a mini ipod? what's the difference between a car dock and a transmitter?
