I would like to buy an Apple iPod for my upcoming trip to London, leaving in 7 days.
This will be my first digital music storage device, and while I have downloaded music etc and am comfortable with my computer -- I know very little about iPods beyond the (thorough) demonstration I had at the Apple store.
So I have a few questions I hope someone more experienced can help me with:
Is it realistic to assume that I can buy a new iPod, learn how to use it, and download say, a dozen CD's onto it taking maybe an hour or two each day for seven days?
What must I buy for it and or bring with me to keep it working on my travels (recharger etc.) What adapters, if any, do I need for London? Would you consider bringing along the small speakers?
Do you think the photo storage iPod is a good thing? (I do take a lot of digital photos. It sounds fun, but that unit is also considerably bulkier.)
Any other tips/suggestions much appreciated.
