It will go the round of reviews, get a few mentions on a few websites and then fade into obscurity. I'd love to see the Marketing Requirements Document for this one, who would their demographic be? Let's people who own iPods but no computers and need to rip CDs some how.... now that would be... let me think... 0!

that would be useful for when you're traveling, especially when you have a stepdad like mine, who doesnt let me download itunes on his traveling laptop. at the same time, does it have preferences where you can pick certain tracks? because on some cds, you may not want all the songs on it, Especially when you have a nano like me, you have to be wise about what songs you want before your ipod gets fille dup

Hmm...if it worked with DVDs and did solely that I could definitely see its use. Ripping DVDs to iTunes for use on your iPod is much more difficult than ripping CDs, so if they could make it smaller, make it primarily for DVDs, make it faster, and make it cheaper (which is A LOT for the company to do) then I could see it finding its perfect niche.

Interesting concept, but I agree, I don't think I'd use it.

iLounge had actually reviewed the iLoad and created a video posted on YouTube that showed the iLoad and iTunes ripping a 60 minute CD to two same generation iPods. Their findings? The iLoad took nearly 20 minutes to rip and load the CD to its iPod while iTunes finished its CD in about 5 minutes and then they actually were able to rip and load a second 60 minute CD with iTunes with time to spare. Of course, it's not scientific or anything, but it's something to consider. Granted it could be very useful to those who don't have computers and do have iPods or those who aren't tech savvy enough to use iTunes, but in my experience (with my mother), she can't even figure out how to work our DVD player, much less an iPod so I'm seeing it as a product with a very small target audience because I don't know how many other people a) have time to kill waiting for it to slowly load or b) have the extra space to put that clunker. Anyway, if you're interested in the iLounge review and multi-part video, here it is: http://backstage.ilounge.com/index.php/backstage/comments/getting-rid-of-iload-and-wingspan-the-full-story/

I could see that as being useful to some, I wouldn't use it though.
