Apple has posted their streaming video feed for the Let's Talk iPhone event. So if reading all the live blogs and news still isn't enough for you, you can hop on over to Apple's events page and watch the keynote address for yourself.
The iPod nano and iPod touch lines have now been refreshed. The iPod nano will now have built in sensors to make the fitness experience even better. You won't need any additional adapters or software. Icons are also a bit bigger to make navigation easier. It'll come in seven different colors and you can choose between an 8GB capacity ($129) and a 16GB capacity ($149). It will even have 12 new watch faces -- including Mickey Mouse -- for those who want to strap it to their wrists!
The iPod touch line will also see the addition of a white model. The models will remain the same capacity wise - 8, 32, and 64GB with the following price points -
There are some alleged 7th-generation iPod nano prototypes floating around the internet that show it just might be getting a camera this fall, something the 5th generation had but the current iPod nano lacks. Aside from Apple having to modify the clip so as not to interfere with the camera, is this really something we want?
The Giffin Wristlet for iPod nano is nice silicone holder for Apple's tiniest screen-based music player. Just slip your 6th generation iPod nano into the stretchy case, then wrap the wrist strap around your wrist.
The case covers the on/off and volume buttons, protecting them from scuffs and scrapes and minor weather, but leaves the 30 pin dock connector and 3.5mm headphone jack clear for easy syncing, charging, and listening. There's a cutout for the clip, so you can still clamp your nano onto a shirt or band or anything else if you so choose.
The wrist strap is quite comfortable, and the nice thing is you can really hang it on just about anything. And yes, it does let you weaponize your nano, kung-fu whip style -- though it might not survive a lot of impacts. Unfortunately, it's moulded out of the same single piece of silicone as the case itself so it's not really adjustable.
The Griffin Slap for iPod nano is a fun, colorful watch adapter that children of the 80s will no doubt appreciate. It gets its name from how you use it -- just grab it by the strap and slap it onto your wrist. It wraps around and voila -- iPod nano watch!
But how does it hold up in use? Read on for the review!
The Griffin AeroSport for iPod nano is an armband strap for those who are always on the go and want to take their music with them. It's made of a lycra so it is very light, comfortable, and flexible and stays put on your arm whether you are jogging or playing sports. For more on the Griffin AeroSport for iPod nano stay with us after the break!
Developer and hacker, James Whelton has managed to "Jailbreak" the iPod nano, getting past its cache comparison and installing a rather simple tweak that can remove default apps and replace them with 'blank spaces' on the nano's springboard. This can open up the iPod Nano to more hacks and mods from other hackers, including the ability to potentially view Movies or TV Shows, set Calendar Events and set a passcode lock.
Whelton pointed out some hidden strings that he discovered in the iPod nano OS as well.
Next is the discovery in some of the device’s plists of reference to support of Movies, TV Shows, Apps, Games, vCards, Calender events and so on, with a few other cool things like a passcode lock. With the bypass I figured out, I hope to enable these pretty soon. It seems like the OS is a rehashed version of the previous nano’s OS.
Details on how to jailbreak the iPod nano are said to be released in a few days. It'll be interesting to see what Team Jailbreak will do with the newly hacked Nano. Would you want Movies and TV Shows on such a small screen? Are there any particular mods you would like on the sixth-gen nano?
Should you get an iPhone 4, iPod touch (2010), or iPod nano (2010)? Or more specifically, who should get an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPod nano? That's a question we get a lot from people considering their first iOS device or a second device for their family, and that's the topic for the fourth episode of our new, conversational video show, TiPb TV!
Rene and I go over the strong and weak points of each device, always on internet connectivity vs. the cost of a data plan, sleek and thin vs. smaller camera sensor, cheap and highly portable vs. no video and apps. Sure there's a lot of overlap but there are a lot of differences too.
Maybe you already have a phone or smartphone, maybe you need a phone or a second media player or workout music. If you're thinking of picking up a new iPhone, iPod touch, or iPod nano this holiday season -- for yourself or for that special someone -- then check out the latest episode of TiPb TV and we'll help you decide!
Take an iPod nano that's just begging to be worn as a watch and add renown Nike designer Scott Wilson and you get the TikTok and LunaTik, a truly sweet project on KickStarter.
TikTok and LunaTik transform the iPod Nano into the world's coolest multi-touch watches. The idea to use the Nano as a watch was an obvious one ever since the product was announced. But we wanted to create a collection that was well designed, engineered and manufactured from premium materials and that complemented the impeccable quality of Apple products. Not just clipped on a cheap strap as an afterthought. We wanted to create a product that your friends and strangers would stop you and ask "WTF is that??? And where can I get one?!"
The only issue I have with the Nano watch is that if you want to listen to music with the watch you need to get longer headphones. Either way this watch is very cool.
If you like them you can pledge your support -- and get in on the pre-order -- now via the link below. I'm not even going to lie, I'm waiting on one of each already!
