Hitler is not very happy with the iPod touch camera situation. I can't blame him, actually. He makes a pretty good case, touching all the bases.
Azzparently, if you want to open an iPod nano fifth generation, you will need an old school razor. That has to hurt, in a un chien andalou kind of way.
...And iPod Touch gets screwed! Yesterday Apple unveiled a few new toys. Best of the lot was the new Nano, now with built-in camcorder, and iTunes 9, with media sharing, iPhone app management and a store makeover.
New iPod Nano in hand, we promptly tested the video camera and the crazy video-record filters. They're fun, but the camera itself is positioned awkwardly.
It's cheap and it's small. But how does the new iPod nano's video actually work? Check out our interface clip here.
Here's the new iPod Nano. The paint is less matte, more shiny. The corners seem less sharp (a previous complaint of mine). But physically, it's about the same. The differences are inside.
As well-documented by the "word on the street," the fifth generation iPod nano is also a video camera...and radio and a pedometer and a voice recorder too...and it's available today. Details:
The iPod Classic just got bumped up to 160GB for the old price of $250. The Shuffles are now at $59 for 2GB, $79 for 4GB and come in black, silver, pink, green and blue. They're all shipping today. Updated
As expected, the iPod touch third generation is here. It comes in 8, 32, and 64 GB—for $199, $299, and $399. The new 32 and 64GB version has a faster processor, 50% faster. Just like the iPhone 3GS.
I look forward to the inevitable Photoshop of the Apple tablet in this shot if and when that ever comes out. [It's Only Rock and Roll Liveblog]
And on the third keynote, he speaketh again. And the people rejoiced, and feasted upon the lambs and iPods, and carp and anchovies, and iPhones and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and tempura tofu plates. Steve Jobs is on stage:
