While owning an iPod brings with it the ability to enjoy over 10,000 songs from the palm of your hand, many people find that not having FM radio capabilities can really hinder the overall popularity and usefulness of the iPod. Thankfully there are numerous FM transmitter devices that have been developed to be used specifically for the iPod and iPhone devices.

FM Transmitter Overview

An FM transmitter is a device which connects to your iPod and allows you iPod to play FM radio stations for free. This effectively turns your iPod or iPhone into a portable, high quality radio that can play any stations within range. Most FM transmitters designed for smartphone use also include some type of hands-free calling system and a universal charging port which allows the device to be powered from the DC adapter in your vehicle.

As one of the most popular MP3 players ever invented, the iPod has won numerous awards and has been purchased millions of times by people all around the world since its inception over 10 years ago. Apple has included their own operating system, known as iOS, on all of the iPods they have built and shipped. While iOS is a good operating system in its own right, some people naturally want to expand the capabilities of their iPod by installing a new operating system that replaces the existing one on new iPods. iPodLinux is an operating system based on Linux technology that is designed to run on all Apple iPod devices.

History

The idea for a Linux type operating system to be used on an iPod was thought of shortly after the original iPod was released in 2001. Computer scientist student Nils Schneider recognized numerous shortcomings related to the Apple iOS operating system and decided to extract the fourth generation bootloader. This process took him 22 hours to complete. After extracting the bootloader Schneider was able to replace the original iOS operating system with a Linux-type system he and fellow students had developed.

We are answering maybe the popular question in this year, what is iCloud? iCloud is the largest and most used cloud computing service available. It was launched by Apple in October of 2011 and it allows users to store files, music and iOS applications on secure cloud servers so they can be accessed and retrieved later. The service also allows all data including email, app settings and preferences, calendars, bookmarks, notes and other things to be automatically synced between all Apple and Windows devices as long as there is an internet connection.

When first iCloud Started

Originally launched as iTools way back in 2000, iCloud started as out as a way for Mac users to organize their contacts, notes and calendars in an easy to use interface. The program later relaunched as .Mac in 2002 and became MobileMe in 2008. MobileMe is the direct predecessor to iCloud and it offered many of the same services that iCloud currently offers. iCloud was launched on October 12th, 2011. It offers many services and features that are similar to the previous brand of MobileMe.
The original idea behind iCloud was to offer users a safe, convenient and easy way to store and access all of their information from one location. Because the servers are located on the internet the personal information can be accessed anywhere with just a password from any device. The purpose of iCloud was to allow people access to their information quickly and easily, and to be able to sync all their information into one location.
