Gizmodo Today: iPod Rumors Rampant, Computers Chic or Cheap, CrackBerry Addicts Breathe Easier

(2/23/06) Today's posts were all over the map, from 150 feet under the ocean where an autonomous spy jet sneaks to the surface, to the pinnacle of the personal music player market where the iPod holds court. Rumors were flying about the mysterious announcement coming up next Tuesday from Apple, where the most likely of educated guesses had the Cupertino company offering downloads of complete major motion pictures. Also fanning the flames of speculation was a picture of an allegedly upcoming video iPod that was all-screen. Meanwhile we heard news of PCs large, small, elegant and cheap, and even one that was good, fast and cheap (pick all three). More cameras peeped out from behind the curtain in advance of the upcoming PMA juggernaut, and NASA revealed a tiny space antenna designed by a hive of Borg-like computers. Through it all, Crackberry addicts breathed easier when the US Patent and Trademark Office rejected one of NTP's patent claims in the lawsuit that might just go on forever.
