The redesigned nano primarily exists to upsell adult customers to an iPod touch. By removing the click wheel they removed the primary reason (other than price) people sight for preferring the nano over an iPod touch. Children seem to manage the screen ok with their smaller fingers.I also think it's strategically part of their forward planning. At some point in the future the cost of manufacturing the nano will start to bump up against the cost of manufacturing the shuffle...
This might just be the first time I buy one.
Ballmer is the best employee Apple's ever had.
There are tons of numpties out there. They google "free Mac antivirus" and implicitly trust whatever google search throws up. They probably also click on banner ads proclaiming them a winner for being the millionth person to visit a site. Before using any web service for the first time I, at the very least, google "servicename + scam". That's not to say it's not Apple's responsibilty. I hope this is another area they take the lead, unlike Microsoft, which allowed an entire...
This x 1,000,000 Windows alerts are logic haiku. Unsave changes? [yes], [no] or [cancel]

Imagine doing away with the plastic frame that holds the glass in place, both the front and back surfaces "melting" around the edges to meet the antenna. Apple have an increased incentive to...
I doubt it will be called "iPhone 4S". The iPhone 3GS was probably only called that because it was the third iteration of the device but "iPhone 3" sounds like a retrograde step coming from an iPhone 3G. Steve has never been fond of convoluted product names. In can't imagine he would be thrilled to label a product something which suggests it is only a half baked improvement on the previous model (think Nintendo DS > Nintendo DSi > Nintendo DSi XL).
I imagine it would be reserved for tracks you have purchased from your iTunes Store account for three reasons: 1) the integrity of that data is guaranteed 2) Apple has existing access to this data 3) It adds value to music purchased through the iTunes Store compared to music purchased elsewhere and imported (which Apple does not make money from)
Is Google just spooked by the relative ease with which handset makers could displace Google Search with Facebook or Bing if it were truly an open platform?
But doesn't that just create lots of shadows?
