Future Apple Hardware - from 2003

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014

Okay, it's my 10th anniversary today as a member of AppleInsider and so I've taken the liberty of (sort of) bumping a ten year old thread. This thread is interesting historically and displays insights of early members.

Who knows. The point here is that whether or not Apple be growing iPod into something that effectively becomes the center of a personal digital hub. Something that effectively is a new computer platform. Slowly...surely.

I think the iPod is destined to be a Personal Organisation Device (as opposed to a PDA )

I also like Matsu's idea (if I remember correctly) where he likened the iPod to being a digital wallet. I think he proposed the concept of being able to download images directly from your digital camera to free up memory card space. Now that would be a handy feature too!.

    Contrast this with the posts on MacRumors at the intro of the iPod and you'll see who the real Apple fans are.
