"It's Showtime!" - new upgrades to the apple ipod and itunes http://www.engadget.com/2006/09/12/live-from-the-steve-jobs-keynote-its-showtime/#c2084540 ^warning for 56k users, lots of pics and blog comments so a basic summary: So as you probably have seen from the link, the major change is the ipod shuffle. I totally wasn't expecting a redesign, but alas, it's smaller! Also you can see some ipod mini resemblance in the nanos and their curved sides. The 60 gig ipod has been replaced with a cheaper 80 gig to fit the new itunes movie store. (but no full screen ipod.. booooo ) And finally of course, huge battery life improvements for the 80 gig ipod and the nanos. one thing i hate about apple is that they constantly release new upgrades to their products making the previous buyers feel like idiots for having the older products (such as the ipod mini). But I can't blame them that much since it's just a marketing technique and that's probably why I haven't bought an ipod yet. i might consider getting one next year but who knows.. any thoughts, comments?
