Supersize your iPod - get 4 times the tunes on it!

I just heard about this cool new software download called ShrinkMyTunes. It re-compresses any mp3 files so they end up even smaller, allowing you to get more of them on your iPod or other mp3 player...and in tests 88% of people couldn't tell the difference between the original and the shrunk mp3.

They've got some sample mp3s on their site so you can hear the difference.

You should be able to resample your mp3s in iTunes, drop the bitrate under the options and then right click on the song(s) and choose to convert to MP3. I've done this in the past and dropped down to around a quarter of the usual rate, and cannot notice any difference.

Cool...I must admit, I hadn't thought of doing that. Thanks for the tip Sarah!
