GetItemById takes the Item whose Id is given in the function! so if you hardcode it to 1, it will always take the first List Item!

You should learn basics of SharePoint Object Model, if you want all the Items in the List simply use SPList.Items property to get all the items in the List

You can use SPQuery to get your desired items and use List.GetItems!

Once you run a query you will get SPListItemCollection and you can use foreach with collection to update bulk items!

So it depends upon what you are trying to achieve, get hold of SP Object Model!

Just a warning: SPList.Items is executed exerytime it is evaluated see here. There are therefore some things to condider. Like: Prefer SPList.AddItem over SPList.Items.Add, store Items in a variable, etc., etc. –  Markus May 24 at 8:43
