Increase Volume of iPod

With many external devices, the standard iPod volume is not loud enough. Here are the tricks that you can use to increase the output volume.

Two major ways exist for increasing the iPod volume.

There are advantages and risks to each way.

First, you can increase the volume of the song through iTunes:

- Open iTunes.
- Select Library.
- Select a song or songs. (Ctrl+A for all.)
- Right click and select Get Info. (If a prompted to edit multiple items, select Yes)
- Navigate to Volume Adjustment at the bottom.
- Move the arrow upward toward +100%
- Click OK.
- Sync your iPod.

This is an easy way to increase the volume of an individual song or multiple songs. However, this will frequently increase distortion. This makes the song "hotter" but doesn't actually increase the volume coming out of the iPod.

Most software that you can download that will increase your iPod volume works through this matter as well.

The one piece of software that works well is goPod. This actually hacks the iPod firmware to allow the iPod to push more power. This will not actually distort the music (although it may introduce distortion by overpowering your earphones or external device.)

Obviously, hacking firmware is not for the lighthearted and you should do so at your own risk... although goPod makes it pretty easy.

Also, be careful. More volume and more power can destroy ear drums. Do not be crazy with the volume.

Using Latitude and Longitude with Google Maps

Whether you want to quickly add a waypoint to your GPS, or view a map of a known location, it can often be convenient to use real latitude and longitude values with Google Maps instead of dealing with street addresses.

Rerieving a map for a lat/lon value is simple enough with Google Maps. You can simply enter the decimal latitude and longitude into the search form instead of a street address.However, if you're viewing a map and you want to retrieve the lat/lon location, there unfortunately isn't a convenient "get latitude and longitude" button. Google Maps deals with latitude and longitude locations internally, though, so with this little snippet of javascript, you can easily get the job done: javascript:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()) This will return the coordinates of the map's center point. You might want to double-click a position on the map before running the above code. Doing so will reposition that point to the center of the map …

On a social bookmarking system or network, users store lists of Internet resources that they find useful. These lists can be accessible to the public by users of a specific network or website. Other users with similar interests can view the links by topic, category, tags, or even randomly.
