Illustration for article titled 6th Generation of iPods for January 2008

Analysts at Piper Jaffray peg Apple's next iPod announcement in January 2008, and they bet we'll see an iPod with an iPhonish touchscreen and running a version of OS X. What is it with these guys and obvious predictions?

I mean, January is Macworld. From the looks of it, the iPhone will continue to be Apple's mobile all-in-one handheld, while the iPod will move toward being a portable media powerhouse, with larger drive capacity, bigger and better screens, though lacking the iPhone's net capabilities. Again, obvious, but we only report because maybe they know some facts they can't share on record. But without specific details or quotes, what do we have here worth standing on? [Ars Technica]

iPod's aren't the only one. What about Creative? Everyone is too obscessed with Apple, that Creative get's overlook. Creative Zen's are great players, which are better the iPod. Apple did not invent the MP3 player, in fact they stole the GUI technology from Creative. Creative sued and won $10 million. Unfortunately, Apple unfairly profits with it's domiance, while Creative loses money.

Generation mp3 interviewed Creative earlier this yer and they revealed that they are working on new mp3 players which technology we've not seen before, such as X-FI. They are too come out before Christmas, beating Apple.

Forget about Apple, and take a look at Creative. Find Your Zen.
