No Surprises – A day in the Apple

are you a phoner or a podder?

Apple have introduced their new line of ‘pods. The high points are a red iPod shuffle (cool), a fatter but shorter iPod nano (smaller?), a stripped down iPhone that is now being called iPod touch with the iPod classic pulling up the rear.

What is interesting, but expected, is the deployment of iPods with WiFi capabilities, with some of the patents that were floating around this is no suprise, but now that it is is moving into the wild it will be very interesting to see what happens next.

As an addendum to the Apple announcement/release I have been running a WiFi enabled phone for 2 months, and war driving like crazy. I live is a fair sized city, Sydney, Australia, WiFi spots, free and paid are few and far between. San Fran may be a different beast in the geeky nerd world but the may be a hole in deployment possibilities on the WiFi front.

The iPod touch is a great idea. Unfortunately it’s storage capacity of 16Gb is only a tenth of what I’d need to house my tunes. Why bother with creating the “Classic” iPod’s successor if it can’t hold jack shit. Ah well, only a year from now to wait to see if he corrects this error.zptm
