There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Zenjamin is flying high
Default best audiobook player

I both love and hate how the shuffle handles audiobooks.

It is small. it is eaisly concealable. I put the the ear-buds in, I put the pod down my shirt, I attach it to my pants and all I ever nee to do is pause and play.

Why should I pay so much extra for a screen when I dont need to pick and choose between different songs?
When I am at work, washing dishes or some other manual task, I love the ability to just quickly bring my hand down to my waist and discreately pause it, never drawing attention to the fact that I am listening to an audio book.

However, apple has put no effort into their software in regards to how the shuffle or Itunes handles audiobooks.
First, Itunes automatically syncs the audiobook. Which means I always lose my place. If I want to put a new Author's name would have been quite enough - no need to post a link... just looks like advertising podcast on my Ipod, Itunes will automatically synch everything on my ipod with what is on Itunes.... meaning that the bookmarks on my shuffle are replaced with the Itunes Bookmarks.

Further, every time I accidentally bump my Ipod the wrong way and hit the reverse button, it reverts to the verry beginning of the audiobook.
I used to just put a butterfly clip on the fast forward button to try to get my place back, but this is apparently so energy inefficient that It loses all of its battery life within an hour. Even if it is fully charged.

Honestly, how hard would it be to fix these two things.
Just make it so that, in the case of audiobooks, the bookmark in the Ipod is saved.
Next, whenever the reverse button on the Ipod is pressed, tell it to never revert to the beginning o the audiobook. only to reverse a little bit, as if it were held down.

There are other things that would help, such as how fast forwarding was handled, but the above two solutions are so common sense, and provides so much of an improvment, that I would have expected apple to do this a long time agao.

The new shuffle seems like it would be more akward in terms of trying to conceal it, as the cord of the earbuds would have to be work above the shirt. and it may take an extra second to fumble with where the controls are.

But even that would be fine if the voice over feature said at what point in the audiobook you were on. But it does now.

As it is, I am fed up enough that I am asking for advice. Moving away from the shuffle, and perhaps even away from Itunes.

Does anyone know of a small, clip on MP3 player/ application combo that would best handle audiobooks?
And if not, is there a way to fix my current problem without spending more money?

I really like my shuffle, and would hate to consider going to something like the player name would have been quite enough - no need to post a link... just looks like advertising, but even just being able to know what point I am in in the audiobook would help the auto sync problem. Of coarse, that doesnt play AAC files. and that is all my audiobook builder app creates.

Edited to comply with the House Rules.
Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated.

You should keep iTunes on your pod; it's the easiest way to get updates from Apple. However, I wouldn't use iT for anything else. There are a number of free programs that make it easy to transfer files to/from your pod, and to as many computers as you want. Most of these programs will sync on command, or you can select files to transfer. I couldn't find a free prog that transferred videos, but not a prob for you. m or other free software sites will have a few of these programs, and many people have reviewed them; all can be found via Google, etc. There are a couple of these programs that can be stored on your pod so that you can download from any computer you plug into, regardless of OS. I don't know about bookmarks, but there are probably free readers that will run on your pod. Find easy instructions on the web if you need to learn how to tell your pod to act as as a mass storage device.

As to your accidently hitting the switches, you could probably inprovise a small hard case. A shuffle would likely fit into a medicine bottle.
