    Some ipod revisions and apple tv stuff from what i've gathered thus far.

    doesn't appear to be any changes to the ipod classic.. some people think they are going to stop selling it but i dunno

    anywho,

    here's the new shuffle

    [​IMG]

    and the new nano. removed the camera and the ability to both record or view video.. not sure why on that one

    [​IMG]



    and now the touch

    [​IMG]

    -Retina display
    -Apple A4 chip
    -3 axis gyro
    -iOS 4.1 w/ game center
    -Facetime with front facing camera
    -720p HD video recording (960x720 stills)
    -iMovie capability
    -thinner than the previous model


    so basically i'm super stoked for the new touch! so glad i didnt bother getting the gen 3

    interesting..

    i know that there 3g coverage is so much less than verizons, and trying to make anything happen on the iphone without 3g is just soo slow. atleast it was on my friends phone anyway. i've just had verizon for a long time and i like the service so i figure why move to another carrier. i can get what i want with the touch and not have to worry about the phone aspect. and like i said before, if verizon ever gets the iphone i'll just get it through them.

    Only Apple could sell people an ipod shuffle.

    If any other company made such a product people would say “zomg no screen” and “randomly plays songs? wtf”.

    They also get $50 a pop for em too - not bad apple !

    Man i don't understand, the 3 other people i know besides myself who were stupid enough to select ATT have the same shitty service problems and dropped calls. I don't have any complaints really about the 3g services its been fine. But the amount of dropped calls is so utterly rediculous im paying the term fee and going back to verizion. The Iphone over all is a good phone.

    As far as him having an Itouch and a phone from verizon, i would go that route too. I use my iphone allot for the Ipod feature and drain my battery. Would be better to have a seperate music player. Athough if Apple would fucking let us swap batteries in this fucker i would uby a spare and keep it with me it.

    When I used to travel for work I never had a problem with my att service on my personal phone. No dropped calls or anything. I don't have a problem anywhere around CT I go with it except for some known dead spots. On the company phone with verizon I also had good luck.

    Same here. My VZ BB frickin' sucks as far as coverage. I'm always in a dead-zone it seems.

    Think motorcycle riders.

    When I'm on the bike, the last thing I want is a click-wheel.... I want buttons I can feel through gloves.

    You wouldn't really brag, I'd imagine. Probably more something like this, "Oh yeah, I heard that song....I got it on my iPod!"
