Name That Tune now playing on iPod 2.1 machines System
There appears to be a new game on my iPod (20GB;3gen) under iPod update 2.1 -- Accessed via the normal Games menu, it's called "Music quiz" and is like Name that tune... It chooses a piece of music randomly from your iPod and lists several track names, one of which is the name of the piece playing. You simply scroll and select the track title to play. As time passes during each playing track, names drop off the list, and you get fewer points for a correct answer.

Yes, it's a fun concept, but while playing the game I noticed the hard drive constantly spinning up and back down to load the song excerpts. Playing this game for too long would take a toll on the battery and seriously reduce the available runtime between charges.

Not to be a pain, but why is this here? A note about the game being available was in the readme for the firmware update. I'm seeing a lot less content recently; a lot of hints from recent weeks are "RTFM" quality.

Maybe that's because Panther is released on Friday?? No big use posting hints for Jaguar now, or at least most people figure that, I think.

Seems like after about 100 songs it starts repeating. Oh well. It was fun for a few minutes…

I made a little app (Name That iTune) that mimics this game for OS X. Get it here. Feedback appreciated. zacw@cox.net
