I've never had a problem getting podcasts onto my 2nd gen shuffle. You just drag and drop them onto the shuffle (or into the playlist you sync with your shuffle). I listen to them at the gym all the time.
So now they're buidling castles in the sky...
I have an idea they're doing it so the focus is on the content. I like the aqua blue look and was initially sad to see the brushed metal looks go, but I now think that was for the best. Now that Microsoft et al have effectively "cheapened the brand" by plastering overly glossy textures and transparency effects everywhere (even in places it doesn't make sense to include them!) Apple has to distance themselves from the gaudy sideshow. This is all about focus, reducing visual...
So how long until we see a "system on a display?"
The 13-inch MacBook Air does have the same native screen resolution as a 15-inch MacBook Pro (1440x900).
Seconded!
That's been there for a while. Even the second generation device has it courtesy of a free update. In my opinion it's one of the strongest reasons to own the device. It's not the natural, immersive web experience that the iPad is but it's definitely useable if you know a few tricks. And the battery life is insane. I travelled with a friend who had one in the US last year and used it to book accommodation, check email and maps when outside of wifi range. It rescued us from...
I like the physical home button. When holding an iPod touch in landscape orientation you can rest your thumb in it without triggering it accidentally. Apple seems to understand the importance of haptic feedback. They replaced the capacitive buttons on the third generation iPod with a click wheel didn't they?If they want a seamless surface I could see them making the whole front surface into a click button - like the trackpads on the macbooks and the magic mouse.Clicks in...
The video is fine. I could definitely see an iPad Film Festival. But most people are more likely to take a photo than shoot a video in everyday life. The larger screen is actually great for framing birthday shots and then sharing it without everyone having to huddle over a tiny screen. It's a little heavy and the tiny (!) shutter button is in an awkward position. But the camera sensor is fine for the web but you can't even take decent photography in good light. I don't see...
Skeptical, but if true the clip on the back would need a large cutout for the camera to see through without blocking the lens. I figure the current nano is designed purely as an upsell mechanism. I imagine the screen would appeal to many people in the market for a shuffle, while the iPod touch is a natural upgrade for those accustomed to the roomier screen dimensions of the previous nano. It's in Apple's interest to stimulate people to consider moving along the path...
