Nike+ Only Built-in on 2nd Gen iPod Touch. iPhone Owners Clearly Lazy

Nike+ Only Built-in on 2nd Gen iPod Touch. iPhone Owners Clearly Lazy

Gizmodo confirms what we feared during our meta-live-blog -- the bits that receive the information from the shoe-insert are built-into the 2nd Generation iPod Touch and not any other Apple device. That's not surprising -- hardware is as hardware does.

That's not the real bad news, though. The real bad news is that the 'dongle' that iPod users have been able to use for those transmissions in the past continues to be incompatible with the iPhone and the 1st Gen iPod Touch and that's not a situation that's likely to change.

iPhone 2.1 Firmware Available Friday, Sept. 12

iPhone 2.1 Firmware Available Friday, Sept. 12

In all of the about 10 seconds devoted to the iPhone in this year's Apple pre-holiday event, Steve Jobs let rock with the iPhone 2.1 announcement. No demo, though we suspect it will be very similar to the iPod Touch 2.1 software that received so much loving. Jobs did run down the "feature" list, however:

iTunes 8 + Vista = BSOD? WT*, QA!

iTunes 8 + Vista = BSOD? WT*, QA!

Seems iTunes 8 for Vista 32/64 will crash if you hook an iPhone or iPod up to it, or, you know, look at it funny. Gizmodo says some users are having luck reverting back to 7.7, or doing a complete uninstall and then installing 8.0. Apple, meanwhile, is asking for crash logs to try to figure out what's happening.

Could Apple's Quality Assurance department really not have any Vista machines in-house to run tests on? Any other company, and we wouldn't even ask but as reader Bryan points out in the comments:

Jobs Speaks! One on One with CNBC.com

Jobs Speaks! One on One with CNBC.com

Jim Goldman over at CNBC.com scored a one-on-one, on camera interview with Steve Jobs, fresh off the stage from Apple's "Let's Rock" event.

Jobs chats iPods, 'natch, and after (and off-camera) joked that rumors of his ill-health were being spread by "hedge funds with a big short position in Apple." Other than that? He could stand to gain a few pounds. Maybe the stress on uber-thin products is just creating a little negative peer pressure?

Love him or hate him, Jobs is the soul of Apple, and its great to see him in action again.

Head on over to CNBC.com for the video...

2.1 iPod Touch Available, But Looped?

A colleague of mine just sent me this, along with the screenshot above:

Every time I try to update my iPod Touch I get this message. I do the help about and it says 7.7.1.11 is installed. Looks like it’s in a loop.

Anyone else getting 2.1 for the iPod Touch yet? Anyone else stuck in a loop? Let us know!

Apple Posts (iPod Touch) 2.1 Guided Tour

Apple Posts (iPod Touch) 2.1 Guided Tour

Continuing their all iPod Touch, almost no iPhone pre-holiday blitz, Apple has released a guided tour for the new, second generation device and its upgraded 2.1 firmware (available Friday for Touch and iPhone users alike).

The focus remains squarely on games. Sweating yet, Nintendo and Sony? But also shows off the new Genius feature. (Which we'll be getting on the iPhone as well, right Steve?!)

Apple Updates Quicktime to 7.5.5 in Advance of iTunes 8?

3

Apple Updates Quicktime to 7.5.5 in Advance of iTunes 8?

QuickTime is one of the core layers of OS X and many Apple products, including iTunes, so it makes sense that when an iTunes update is ready to drop, a QuickTime update will be right there, leading the way. So it is with QuickTime 7.5.5, now available to download right from Software Update.

Go get it!

iPod Takes Center Stage At Lame-ish "Let's Rock" Event

iPod Takes Center Stage At Lame-ish "Let's Rock" Event

It wasn't MacWorld 2007, was it? Too much hype, too little delivery? Rumors of secret features and analysts wetting themselves over lower-margin product revelations set the bar too high? Or did Apple just decide to slip under it this time?

Either way, for iPhone lovers like we here at TiPb, Apple spared only about 10 seconds worth of attention. Highlights were limited to Firmware 2.1, which will be available Friday and include better battery life, less crashy apps, and... working 3G?!

Apple's already made their money for the year on the iPhone, however, so it was time to pump the holiday purses: iPod Nano and iPod Touch. Read on for pics and the full roundup!

HD Content: Coming to an iPhone Near You?

HD Content: Coming to an iPhone Near You?

Last week Rene reported on the upcoming iTunes 8 release and how HD content may be included. According to a source over at Gizmodo, the iPhone handles full 1080p screen resolution "just fine".

My guess is that if this does indeed turn out to be true, we will more than likely start seeing video clips in 720p right on the iPhone. I say 720p simply because that happens to be Apple TV's native HD resolution. In my opinion, 1080p is a little too much. Actually it is complete overkill for such a small screen.

A Look Inside the "Let's Rock" Crystal Ball

A Look Inside the "Let's Rock" Crystal Ball

Today brings Let's Rock. You know, Apple's yearly pre-holiday event. The one that the entire tech-verse has been chomping at the bit for since roughly 0.001 seconds after Steve Jobs left the stage at WWDC 08. The one that will answer: "What's next?"

But that’s all we know: Let's Rock, September 9. We don’t know what, exactly, Apple will announce, or even if Steve Jobs himself will be announcing it (though we certainly think so!) -- or more importantly for the end user: whether or not "OMG new firmware can has stability!!11"

However, that won't for one Jobs-forsaken minute prevent us from guessing!

Steve Jobs Keynoting at "Let's Rock"?

Steve Jobs Keynoting at "Let's Rock"?

Personally, I believe Steve Jobs' health is his business unless and until it materially affects his ability to act as Apple's CEO, and I believe a great deal of the internet speculation has been in poor taste, to say the least. But more than anything, I believe in the rights and freedoms of other people and sites to cover things however they best believe. So, while I'll spare you my rant on how the stock market has gone from something that encouraged investment to grow companies and wealth over generations and increasingly turned it into the speculative, impatient mess that is modern hysteritrading, I will say I love me some Steve Jobs Keynotes, and it looks like we may just be getting one more for the record books tomorrow.
