Submission + - New iPod and other toys (

Foldarn writes: The new iPod has been announced today at Apple's event. Details over on iLounge that give a play by play. Looks like the new iPod (and old ones) are pretty cool. The new iPod, called the iPod Touch is an iPhone without the phone capabilities. The picture and demo showed a nice wi-fi icon. Looks like the iPod is going to be the Zune killer contrary to Microsoft's initial intention! The screen is a widescreen that switches to full screen in a single tap and the overall interface is said to be pretty impressive with smooth 3D graphics. It sounds like a regurgitated iPhone, but I don't think you'll hear too many complaints. The older iPods are going to start going out with what looks like twice the battery capacity as before.

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome. -- Dr. Johnson
