One More Thing…



Apple conveniently choose a spot that is dead to cell phone, so nobody is live blogging the event. We will get the updates after the session. [Engadget]

Some notes from Engadge:
* Video iPod! It will be30% thinner than the current iPod and can come in black. Apple’s focus is still music over video though. Seems like it will play MPEG-4 h.264 and most likely Quicktime.

* Updated iMacs. There will be a 1.5 Ghz with a 17-inch display and 2.1 Ghz with a 20-inch display. Also includes a built-in iSight.

* Front Row. A remote control for Macs.

* New iTunes 6 featuring downloadable music videos for $1.99 USD.

One more thing…

* Purchase episodes of Lost, Desperate Housewives, Night Stalker, That’s So Raven, and The Suite Life on ITMS for $1.99 each.

Thoughts? I signed up today to donate plasma… I am going for the 60 GB video iPod. I watch some vidcasts and wouldn’t mind watching a video on a small screen like that… mostly when I am bored. I think the price is right for the TV shows and I would pay 1.99 for a missed episode of Lost if I didn’t have a TiVo. I hope this succeeds so that they publish more shows on iTunes.

  1. I actually take back everything I said. It’s a bigger screen, it’s thinner, it’s new. I am very happy with my 60 gig color, but I am wanting to get one of these now. I’m surprised the price isn’t higher? I am thinking that with all my purchasing in itunes, the new videos and shows is going to be hard to resist.

  2. The new IPods are coming….

    A coworker of mine went to Wal-Mart(TM) the other night and said they’d taken all of the IPods out of the display case endcap. I didn’t even put 2 and 2 together at that point, but I did know about the “One more thing” event bei…
