The New iPod



Did you know that this is the week that Apple has its big meeting to unveil its new products for the coming year? That means that the next generation iPod may be around the corner.

My 14 year old son is literally dreaming at night of the variations that Apple could apply to the new model. We had an ichat earlier tonight where he sent me prototypes created by other fanatics who want to get their "best guesses" out there. Thought you'd get a kick out of these:

This one is a touch sensitive screen:



This one makes use of the Front Row screen that you find on Apple Computers:


The idea that our iPods would work with our car stereos seems a no-brainer too, for the future:

The full screen look seems the most likely candidate for hot new feature:

Jacob thinks that there's the possiblity that the new iPod might also take photos! Have you thought about it at all? Do you have an iPod? Do you care? We own six different iPods in our house. :) Kind of fanantics for Apple here. I have an iBookG4 which now feels like a dinosaur compared to the Macbookpro that is on the market:



Off ot justify reasons to buy that Macbookpro computer...

We are a two iPod household right now, but I've been foaming at the mouth at the thought of getting one that can store EVERY song I have and play videos that I may wish to download. All Amy can do at this point is roll her eyes (and I think do a little praying that I just don't run out and buy one).....

How about a phone-ipod?

I have an iPod Video, and don't know how I lived without it. I use it for audiobooks I check out from the library via the web, in addition to tons of music and some video clips. I already have a dealer-installed iPod adapter for my car that lets me control the iPod from the car stereo while it recharges. Great for long commutes.

Bob, I think there was/is an iPod phone, but it apparently was pretty lame as an mp3 player, so I don't think it has sold well. Not sure what they have up their sleeve in that department.

We have zero iPods in our house. Curt had one but it was stolen out of his dorm room last spring. I have a little cheapie SanDisk mp3 player but that's no comparison.

But I do like iTunes on my computer, fwiw...
