iPod video launched
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, Apple unveiled a new iPod model yesterday which will play videos. Seems like every product launch for the last year or so has been awash with rumours of such a beast, I guess they had to be right some time! It comes in black too – about time!
My currently uncharitable feelings towards Apple notwithstanding (my 4G iPod drive died last week, about a month or so out of guarantee) I still don’t see the point. I guess that everyone else’s hard drive player with colour screen plays video so they had to jump on the bandwagon but for me it’s not a huge selling point. As a driver I can’t exactly watch an episode of “Lost” on the way into work and I’m not sure I’d want to on a 2 inch screen either! And as for paying for music video downloads….
The new G5 looks cool though, proving that at least they haven’t lost their sense of style!
