|Today saw Apple launch the revamp to 3 of their existing products. iTunes and the iPod nano, touch and classic.
Starting with iTunes. Apple today unveiled iTunes 8, which includes breakthrough Genius technology that, with a single click, lets you automatically create playlists from songs in your music library. iTunes 8 also features new ways of viewing your music and video libraries, and it adds television programs in stunning high definition for sale on the iTunes Store.
Steve Jobs then introduced the new iPod Touch. Perfect for music, movies, and games, the new iPod touch features an amazingly thin contoured metal design, a gorgeous 3.5-inch widescreen glass display, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi wireless networking, integrated volume control buttons, a built-in speaker for casual listening, a built-in accelerometer and other advanced sensors, and Apple’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface. Available now in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB models. The 8GB is £169 and the 32GB £279. So not much of a cut on price...
Then came the grandest of the re-designs in the shape of the new iPod Nano. Available in nine vibrant colors, the new fourth generation iPod nano — the thinnest iPod ever — features a sleek new design with a curved aluminum and glass enclosure. It also incorporates Genius technology and features a built-in accelerometer that automatically switches to Cover Flow when rotated and automatically goes into Shuffle mode when lightly shaken. iPod nano (4th generation) comes in 8GB and 16GB models, starting at just £109.
The Classic also had some attention paid to it, with the moto of 'One size fits all' applied to it. The new Classic has a standard 120GB of storage, iPod classic can hold up to 30,000 songs, 150 hours of video, or 25,000 photos. That’s more than enough room for a day’s — or a lifetime’s — worth of entertainment.
Unfortunately, computer lovers who have waited 2 - 2 1/2 years for new MacBooks and MacBook Prosare going to have to wait even longer. With another product seminar to be held in October of this year. Price reduction and special iPod slots and tracker pad technology are 'to be expected'. Fingers crossed...
