So, How Good Are the New iPods?

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Apple iPods" @ 08:30 PM

"With the latest iPods shipping this week, you'll be wanting to know whether an upgrade is necessary-or whether to take the plunge into the wild world of iPoddery. So far, this is what the reviews are saying:"

Quick reviews of the new iPod Touch, the iPod Nano and the iPod Shuffle express a variety of opinions on the latest iPod generation, and they're mostly very positive, with a couple negatives thrown in. From the reviews:
  • The iPod Touch: not a replacement for a camera or videocam; the camera is not as good as the iPhone's camera; the speakers are lousy; the screen is less bright.
  • The iPod Nano: feels cheap, like an iPod clone; volume buttons are small and hard to operate; no more watching video, and no more camera.
  • The iPod Shuffle: using the clip, sometimes the controls (track back skip) are hit by mistake; audio a bit flat.
Overall, more positives than negatives, so it looks like Apple has another generation of winners. Also, the Nano displays a a digital representation of an analog watch, so there is already a clamor for a watchband for using the Nano as a watch replacement.

The iPod Nano's Changing Form

"Perhaps more than any other device in Apple's electronics arsenal, the iPod nano has changed dramatically over the years. Birthed as the iPod Mini, the first generation nano rounded off and slightly shrank the design, while adding a color screen."

This was one change that I really didn't get from yesterday's event. But then again, I think that has been the problem with the Nano all along, just where does it fit in the iPod mix. As you can see from all the various changes, perhaps Apple has been wondering this same thing as it has taken on many forms over the years. What are your thoughts? Do you think the Nano change is good? Bad? Too close to the Shuffle?

Apple Updates iPod Nano Software to 1.04

"Apple has released Software Version 1.04 for the fourth-generation iPod nano. According to Apple's release notes, the update fixes an issue which resulted in some incorrect daylight savings date settings, now correctly displays Thai song information tags when syncing in disk mode, and includes other minor bug fixes."

This update is available via the iTunes update feature only. Sounds like a fairly minor update for you iPod nano owners.

Apple Wins 4 Design Awards

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 09:00 AM

"That Apple's products are well-designed isn't really news to anybody, but it's always nice to see the Cupertino folks getting their due from their peers. So we imagine the design team at 1 Infinite Loop is pretty pleased that their products took home four separate iF product design awards handed out by iF International Forum Design."

Winning awards is always cool, and this award is from one of the most prestigious in the design community, International Forum Design, which has been around since 1954. Apple also came in 2nd to Samsung in both the creative and company categories. You can go here to get list of all the winners in the various categories for this year (check out the umbrella).
