iPod, the Next Generation

I was so excited when I was on-line at 2am in the morning to watch Steve Jobs make his “One More Thing” announcement, because it was all of my sweetest dreams come true.

Aside from a new iTunes, he announced my current true love: a video iPod. Finally, the Pod of my dreams has arrived, and wow does it have promise.

Aside from a new iTunes, he announced my current true love: a Video iPod. Finally, the Pod of my dreams has arrived, and wow does it have promise. This fifth generation iPod has more than a video makeover: the Apple iPod touch‘s design has subtle improvements.

It’s slimmer by a twinge than the older 20 Gb version, with a slightly curved back for more comfortable gripping, and a larger 2.5 inch screen with 18 bit colour at high resolution, so even your photos look better.

And, of course, you can watch movies! MPEG-4 movies are supported, but not AVI formats, so get your video converter software busy.

In fact, the new iTunes 6 released by Apple in conjunction with the video iPod tells you what movie you can watch, and if you have the appropriate codec, converts it for you, so as usual, it’s one smooth operator. The new iPod also comes in show-off white, and glamourous black, so you can decide which fashion style to go with.

And if you’re feeling rich, just buy both, and make your fashion decisions easier! At $500 plus for the 30 Gb version, the iPod is a worthwhile buy. So grab it while it’s out, and be the envy of everyone else on the MRT. I know I am.

I can see the envy in other commuter’s eyes as I watch Desperate Housewives’ Eva Longoria get it on with the hunky gardener.
