New iPods are Smokin’

Apple’s keynote today revealed that the company has a lot more up its sleeve than imagined. First, the iPhone basically shaped the future of the cellphone market, and now, Apple is about to yet again set a standard for all mp3 players, even though so many companies before it have implemented the same features, except without the iTunes powerhouse and general recognition. Thankfully for you, the iPod-family grows in size and becomes more complicated–one new flavor added to the mix. The Shuffle and iPhone remain, while the nano gets squashed and the classic iPod gets a next-gen makeover. The big news is the iPod Touch, though, which implements iPhone-features (touch screen, Wi-Fi, sideways viewing, etc.) into it. That’s not it, though. The new iTunes Wi-Fi service offers up a mini-version of iTunes on your lovely iPod Touch giving you access to any downloads you want. The downloads charge up your credit card or gift card and then you’re done. If that’s not enough, the new iPod Classic is possibly the biggest iPod yet and it sets a new industry standard. 160GB will be just enough to store 40,000 songs and possibly your life, for the bargain of $349. That’s 2.2 gigs per $1. Yet again, Apple sets the bar for future mp3 players. (And) yet again, SONY, who has promised to bring a lot of these features to the market, has been upstaged.
