And here we go again... One more thing...

So maybe they announced the iPod Nano to let it get all of the attention... and now they release the NEW iPod... or should I say vPod? wink

BTW, on the invite, the background looks eerily like the red velvet curtains found in movie theaters. wink

Not to be a stick in the mud, but I want Apple to be a computer company again. I love my iPod Mini but won't replace it until it dies.

I'm hoping this is a HD-video PowerBook or something. I'm still looking for an excuse to upgrade from my TiBook 667/DVI. smile

Voch

Or maybe its that tablet type device I've been reading rumors about for the longest time?

The iPods are really nice, but I hope the announcement is something non-iPod related. The new Apple mouse was a nice change even if it didn't impress me enough to go out to buy one.

I'd really love to see some major computer upgrades, but that's probably not going to happen until June 2006.

Remember the little pocket in his jeans that Steve pulled the iPod Nano out of?

There was so much demand for 'em, that Apple has merged with The Gap, and will be selling iPants.

They'll have regular iPants, U2 iPants (in black leather), and iPants Nano (for those who are into the whole "show off your butt-crack" fad).

What?

Hey, it's not any stupider than iPod Socks.

Here\'s proof!

The Gap's online store is currently "not working" for Safari users. Apple always closes its own online store when updating it for new products. See? iPants. Proof positive.

Ooh, this is fun! AppleInsider is weighing in with the Video iPod and updated Video iTunes Store (me likey) and ThinkSecret is firing back with upgraded PowerMacs and PowerBooks... wink

I'm OK with either quite honestly, as I could use both... but the invite does have a theater curtain in the background... I mean come on! wink

Voch stated my own feelings perfectly, although, just for the record, I love my iPhoto Photo and now my iPod nano, too (yeah, got it today smile ).

Look... Apple wouldn't say... "One more thing..." if it was a simple update to hardware. This is a new product boys and girls... and I personally suspect that it's an Apple style Tivo box to go with your Video iPod so that you have CONTENT for it. Job said that there wouldn't be a video iPod until there was CONTENT... so the apple iPod media store and Apple TiVo would probably be the best combination ever!

Just my 2 cents.

It's the Mac TV all over again. wink

I'm sticking with my predictions from August.

I think Pat's onto something with the movie curtains. Apple just doesn't throw random backgrounds into things.

Completely agree MAMEDave... it is about the content. And the sooner I can get all of my DVDs and Tivo recorded TV shows in my pocket, the happier I will be. wink
