    Cover 4: T (guys arms spread like a t)

    Cover 5: L (lines come together in an L-like shape)

    Cover 6: E (f you squint at the tree, you can force a capitol E out)

    Cover 7: S (look at just the black, and ignore the H)



    Scary, I see it too.

    At this point who cares if any of this stuff runs OS X. It's really meaningless (to anyone except the bean counters) since Apple isn't supporting 3rd party development on any of it.



    It means a great deal. The present is not the future.

    Don't hate the Wiki...



    It is fantastically useful for the mundane stuff. Like pop lyrics from 40 years ago. Or rubber band nomenclature. and other whatnot. Anyone who goes to wikipedia for current political, economic or social issues where people have a stake in shading (or distorting) the truth, well buyer beware. Don't throw out the baby with the bath water...

    While the iPod is the main attraction there are other products and services that are related which could get mentioned and they are:
    • iPod Hi-Fi - I can see this getting wireless capabilities so we can stream music to it without needing an AirPort Express.

    • iTunes - It could get an upgrade to handle new functionality that could be major enough to bump it to 8.0.

    • iTunes Store - Movie/TV show sales to non-US stores and movie rentals (not likely)

    • Apple TV - Updates to support iPod/iTunes/iTunes Store improvements.

    • iPhone - functionality could be added to match what the iPod gets.

    • AirPort Express - This could get updated with 802.11n and support for the iPod AV Connection Kit.

    I really hope the stubby iPod is an iPod Mini, not the nano. The formfactor for the current Nano is ideal for many uses. A larger screened nano would be welcome though...



    As for the widescreen/touch iPod, I really hope it has hard buttons for both play/pause as well as reverse and forward (hard buttons for volume too). I have an iPhone but I can't use it in the car because I can't "pilot" it blind to fast forward through podcasts or to skip to the next/previous track. For a music-centric device it is crucial to have hard buttons for these.



    Neil Pomerleau did a great mockup for 9to5mac.com that shows these. Way too intuitive for Apple not to do it this way.

    I feel your pain dude. My fiancée actually wants ME to BUY the new 6th generation iPod (namely, I fathom to get me to shut about it. I've never own an iPod-I do have a 1st generation nano; but I have 71+ GB's of music on my Macbook and 15+ GB of videos---so I need at least a 100GB iPod). We are also paying our way through the wedding.



    Good luck, mate!

    Granted, I just synced and caught the latest update on 8/29, but anyone else with an iPhone notice the next sync date is 9/5? Had to wonder if the next update check is supposed to coincide with the announcement...

    If your Mac is set to update once a week and the last update was Wed. 8/29, the next update would be a week later, Wed. 9/5. Simple coincidence.



    Or is it?

    Well, now they have to step up their game, Sony introduces a video Walkman and puts the kibosh on their Connect Music Services. Never thought I'd live to see the day, especially since I'm old enough to remember the very first model, which had high quality metal parts and unbelievably good sound.

    wow. my fiancee got mad at me for buying an iPhone. she doesn't even know i bought new skis, too.

    like she should complain, i just dropped HUGE cash on the ring. [we're paying for the wedding ourselves, too, but i'm putting 3x as much in savings as she is]



    i bought her the original click wheel ipod when it came out. she doesn't understand why anyone would need more than a 20 gig [she uses about 6 gigs] monochrome iPod. i guess i should be happy she doesn't want something new.
