    there’s a feature called Genius, which allows users to create playlists from songs in their library that go great together. An opt-in connection to iTunes allows the company to learn about your musical tastes, as well as the tastes of other iTunes users. Genius also includes a sidebar that makes recommendations of songs on iTunes that you might like.
    A new iPod feature called “Shake to Shuffle” allows you to shuffle to a new song simply by shaking the iPod.



    The new iPod models should be in the stores by early next week.


    iPod Classic this holiday season - the thicker version - is discontinued. The thinner iPod is upgraded from 80 GB to 120 GB. Price stays the same: $249. There’s anew iPod Nano for the holidays. It has the larger hi-res screen as has been rumored. It has a new curved aluminum design with curved glass. It has a new enhanced user interface and includes the Genius playlist creation - without connection to iTunes. It also includes the iPhone’s accelerometer, which allows the screen to shift from portrait to landscape mode by turning the device on its side.

    New software for the iPod Touch and iPhone will be out on Friday.


    There are three models of the new iPod Touch. An 8 GB model for $229, a 16 GB model for $299 and a 32 GB model for $399. It will be thinner than the old iTouch and have the curved design of the iPhone. A speaker and volume controls have been integrated into the new phone. It also comes with built in Nike+ (which talks to your Nike shoes to track your workout performance).

    So when you are running with an iPod, wouldn't that shake it, and wouldn't that shuffle when you don't want to shuffle?

    And that's about it.

    No big news on Laptops, no changes to mobile ME, no earth shattering enhancements to the products.

    Sort of disappointing.

    That is a REALLY good point. I'm sure they've figured out a way to keep it from shuffling when you are walking around or running. But you never know until the device is released into the wild.

    I guess I wasn't the only one disappointed by the Apple event. Their stock is down a huge 5% right now (since yesterday).

    I'm asking Santa for the 32GB! I've been a VERY good girl this year (more or less).

    the headline on my cell phone was "Apple unveils new ipods, Wall Street yawns."...pretty much sums it up.

    I'm disappointed there wasn't the much anticipated macbook update! Who does that!?!?! Come out already!!! I need one jeesh!
    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    I have to agree, I was disappointed as well. For months now, the rumors of a macbook refresh have been circulating. I was really hoping to have Apple shed some light on this. Everything that was announced, we pretty much already knew.
    Your Life is an occasion, so rise up to it.

    I agree. I was really hoping for something regarding the MacBook Pro. I'm not going to make the same mistake twice. I really needed a computer "now" at the time, but I bought my iBook G4 like right before the MacBook was announced.
