Buy a New Apple iPod Touch, Nano (iPod with FM radio) or iPod Classic music player online
There are plenty of retailers to choose from if you want to buy an Apple iPod online, plus you can get a host of accessories and add-ons for these ubiquitous music players! There are loads of places to buy iPods, but several well-known retailers are usually the place to buy the cheapest iPod. Make sure you're not buying a grey import without warranty on your search for a cheap iPod. It's always best to buy new if you can, as the battery life will always be better in a new iPod.




Podcasting with the New Apple iPod Classic, Touch and Nano music/video players
It's now easier than ever to listen to radio shows and audio programmes on the move and at any convenient time, thanks to podcasting. The iPod Nano and iPod Classic 160GB music players can not only download music tracks from music download sites, they can also be used as a place to store and play downloaded podcasts and other audio content. You can subscribe to podcasts using the iTunes software download and synchronise them with your iPod Nano or iPod Classic 160GB player. You can find podcasts by category on iTunes, or online via many radio station and media websites.




DAB digital radios with dedicated iPod dock

Using Apple iPods to listen to radio shows and other audio content

iPods are well-known for their ability to play mp3 tracks and video, but have you thought about other ways iPods can be used to listen to audio? Find out below and where to buy an Apple iPod online.

Unlike real-time streaming, podcasting is a way of distributing radio shows and other audio files to listeners via the internet, which can either be played directly from a PC or MAC, or can be transferred to an iPod music player (or indeed any kind of Apple/mp3/mp4 player) in order to listen at a later time. Basically, podcasts are downloaded to the PC or MAC and then synchronised to a music player such as the iPod Nano or iPod Classic 160GB music/video players.

A piece of software, sometimes called an aggregator - and in this case iTunes - enables you to select podcasts from a range of different genres such as technology shows, discussion shows, unsigned bands, etc. for playback on an iPod nano or larger iPod player.

Podcasts need not be just radio shows: they can be composed of any type of audio or video content.

The attraction of Podcasts is that listeners can choose what they want to listen to and when they want to listen to it on their iPod Nano 8GB/16GB player or iPod Classic 160GB player. Typically, radio stations are making popular presenters' shows available to download. However, Podcasting has spawned a whole new generation of wannabe radio presenters, movie critics and entertainers who are all vying for our attention. Listeners can subscribe to some extremely interesting and useful shows - these are often produced to an extremely high standard.

The iPod Touch lets you download radio Apps to stream internet radio stations to the device. You can listen through headphones or connect the Touch to a speaker dock. Stations such as Absolute Radio have their own dedicated apps, while BBC iPlayer is also available on the iPod Touch through the web browser.

If you want to listen to broadcast radio, look no further than the 6th Generation (and 5th Gen) iPod Nano with FM tuner built-in. You can pause and rewind live radio for up to 15 minutes. The iPod Nano is currently the only player with an FM radio built in.
