    Do you know what 'Verge' means in Korean?

  • February 21, 2018 at 9:23 am

    The video title and thumbnail makes it look like its going to be an hour long video on how to change your iPod's battery :-/, rather than an actual show. That might put some people off! Love the show though guys! 🙂

    First 5 minutes: The Verge's editors being completely baffled by bluetooth technology lol

    Paul why are you filming a laptop test on the ground? Don't you use your laptop on a desk?

  • February 21, 2018 at 4:50 pm

    Can someone explain why the 5th Gen iPod Classic is better than the 6th, other than the meta data limit?

  • February 21, 2018 at 4:54 pm

    Can you guys please get rid of the sound you add every time you show somebody's name or displaying the product etc… It really is annoying sounding.

  • February 21, 2018 at 6:28 pm

    / No micro SD card slot

  • February 21, 2018 at 6:41 pm

    MicroSD is definitely NOT SSD. Cool mod though.

  • February 22, 2018 at 8:16 am

    Mybe a background music would be better

  • February 22, 2018 at 10:20 am

    when you are showing the tooth brush can you put it where the camera is i don't see it

  • February 22, 2018 at 8:22 pm

    I HAVE A QUESTION: do most verge staff use iphones? I know Vlad is android or die, but do most verge staff end up on ios?

  • February 22, 2018 at 9:21 pm

    Please who wants to sell a fifth gen iPod with bad battery and bad drive.

  • February 22, 2018 at 9:30 pm

    What?? Music sold on the iTunes store was MOST DEFINITELY NOT DRM-free at first. They only went fully DRM-free in 2009, which Amazon had already been doing for a year. They were the followers, not the innovators. And if you wanted to get rid of the DRM on songs you had already bought, you had to pay $.30 each for the privilege of "upgrading" them. How gracious.

    Which brings me to point 2 — the vaaaaaast majority of that space is going to be wasted. I have a 128GB SD card in my own iPod Video (using the iFlash-Solo from Other World Computing) and it doesn't see anywhere near all of the songs on it even when using large, high bitrate rips. I have the same problem with my car stereo's USB reader. There just isn't enough database cache to make use of all that storage, and there's no way to upgrade that.

    Man, why did I not watch this show before? It's like what Vergecast should've become before they ditched the video. Love it!

    p.s. still missing Josh

  • February 23, 2018 at 5:02 am

    Wasn’t there an issue about the amount of storage space actually able to be used on the iPod when upgrading? Has this addressed that?

    Also I’d love to see a video for the 120gb Zune, as my HDD in mine is dying and my iPod is going strong.

  • February 23, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    Now if I could find a way to upgrade the storage on My 16gb iPod Nano 5G

  • February 23, 2018 at 3:28 pm

    Hi guys, regarding the iPod hack… do I have to care about the MicroSD File System? NTFS? exFAT? Or will iTunes do the trick for me the first time I plug it into the PC? Thank you 🙂

  • February 23, 2018 at 4:14 pm

    Paul the man! Even with no hans. Awesome!

  • February 23, 2018 at 4:22 pm

    So with the iPod video being fitted with the iFlash upgraded drive, can you still use it as an external hard drive, like how you have that option with a regular iPod classic/video?

  • February 24, 2018 at 3:41 pm

    Where is Xiaomi Notebook Pro/Mi Book Air on the opening test?

  • February 24, 2018 at 8:15 pm

    120 Gb limit on Ipod Classic!!
    I own 160 Gb. Am I missing something?

  • February 24, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    The blue "foam" pad on the original HDD was there primarily to transfer heat from the HDD to the metallic back of the iPod which acted as a heatsink.

  • February 25, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    I love the site's 'What's In Your Bag' feature, but, none of the laptops have sleeves, and many of those bags don't look designed to be protective laptop bags. So, do y'all care about your laptops less because they're free work computers? Or are modern laptops sturdy enough to withstand bumps while we commute? Thanks!

  • February 25, 2018 at 4:48 pm

    I’ll be honest, I wasn’t gonna watch this video after seeing it was an hour long, but well I dint think I could enjoy so much a show about opening notebooks with a thumb and iPad bed accessories

  • February 26, 2018 at 2:55 pm

    why did you removed mr robot after show from your channel, i just found the show, that is really unfair.

  • March 15, 2018 at 9:36 pm

    Dami losing her patience with Paul with his iPad stands is brilliant

  • April 5, 2018 at 5:24 am

    Dami makes any Verge show great, looking forward to her book! Great show again!

  • April 17, 2018 at 2:18 am

    He comes out from brain surgery with this brillant idea. Just look that trippy bandage over his head.
