Exclusive Video Leaked: iPod Firmware Coming, Enables Cover Flow

A little birdie told us that a firmware update for iPods is coming soon, giving you that same Cover Flow view that you've grown to love in iTunes now. See it in action, right here.


The tipster also tells us that we won't see any new-generation iPods before the iPhone debuts, either. But to us, with the scrubbing of the scrollwheel and the coverflow not quite lining up, it seems that this whole thing could be a fake. We're keeping our eyes out in any case.

I'm with everyone else. Coverflow is one of those ideas that sounds much better than it actually is.

Contrast with Clutter, an idea which actually works out much better than it sounds. At least, it did, until I realized that it doesn't really play nicely with Expose.
