The new iPods

Apple announced some significant changes to their iPod lineup today. To summarize:

  • The Nano now has widescreen with video.
  • The regular iPod is now called the iPod Classic and comes in sizes up to 160GB.
  • The iPod Touch is essentially an iPhone without the phone. It maxes out at 16GB.
  • The iPhone has a price drop of $200, down to $399 for an 8GB phone.
  • The iPod Touch and iPhone will allow wireless purchasing of music.

Well, it really sucks if you paid $600 for an iPhone only a few weeks ago.  But with the price drop, proliferation of the already popular iPhone should explode.  The Nano is infinitely cooler thanks to the new video, and the Classic is a beast of storage.  If the Touch were 32GB or more, I would run out and get one tomorrow.  16GB is just not quite enough for me, though the wireless aspect of it is incredibly tempting.  I would have liked to have seen a little more power out of the Touch, but Apple is going to slowly upgrade it to keep people buying more and more iPods.  I’ll wait a year or so and get the second generation.

iPod Amnesty Bin

iPod Amnesty Bin

Microsoft put this “amnesty bin” in their Zune department with the idea that their employees will voluntarily trash a piece of equipment that they spent a few hundred bucks on. I wonder if anyone actually puts in an iPod that isn’t already broken.

Also, I think Ford or Nissan should make a huge box like this where their employees could throw away cars they own that were manufactured by their competitors. That would be a much cooler visual.
