Apple Event on September 12th

Okay so here is the deal with the original 5G iPod with the new firmware:

-Gapless works. (I think the tracks have to be marked Gapless in iTunes though)

-Quick Scroll present.

-Brightness setting present.

However, spotlight type search is NOT present, just like I said/thought.

This doesn't seem to have been posted already which is weird but here it goes. Check out the Apple store. New ipod nanos made out of the alluminum alloys that the ipod minis were made out of with the same colours, new ipod 30 gig/ 80 gig and a brand new shuffle design.

Apple.ca <-- check it out!

Does the 30gb version get 640x480 too or that just the 80gb?

I know the battery life is the same on the 30gb.

Also what about those games, just for 80gb?

I read many places and it doesn't make it too clear :(

if you check out compare specs "games" is listed under the iPod section, which i believe means that they both run the updated software, for it's not under the nano which has the basic games (i believe)

Probably just bugfixes.

Guys, check out the badass new iPod nano commercial: http://www.apple.com/ipodnano/ads/

Is it only me that sees this as a big step that Apple lowered the standard iPod price to $249? I mean I think thats a big deal, lol

its still pretty cool. would love to see spotlight type search sometime in the future however.

none of my tracks are marked gapless, yet they still play gapless now

also i noticed a batter indicator i present when watching vidoes now

They got rid of that cool button where you could import/burn a CD. Now, it just says "Burn Disc" on the bottom.

Also, the aqua scrollbars are gone :(

Yeah, iTunes 7 is ugly as sin on PC. Why did they change it?

It's probably Apple's way of teasing Windows users. They're like "HA! You got a small taste of Aqua but we've taken it away!! SUFFER! Get a Mac if you wanna see it again."

lol

I'm sorry, I didn't read the last 30 pages :

What generation is the new iPod? Five or six?

BTW, I feel sorry for my friend. He bought a Nano yesterday. Not "like" yesterday, but he purchased an iPod Nano yesterday. As in the 11th of September 2006. Ha!

I'm buying a Nano to replace my aging Mini 2G 6GB.

Also, do the iGames work on the iPod video that has been out for like six months?

i think it's a sign of what's coming for 10.5

edit: and i really like the way it looks, now if they could make the WHOLE OS look like that it would be good :)

I personally don't like the idea of having an MP3 player that's no bigger than a Canadian loonie (New Shuffle)! But then again, I do like the new iPod Nano and I placed an order for the new 2 GB a few hours ago. $169 CDN + tax is not bad at all for that (previous 2 GB was $250 plus tax last year).

Maybe I'll write a review and post it on Neowin when I get it! ;)

I dunno, I love aqua a lot, and this does not look like aqua, lol. If they could merge the 2 styles that would be awesome, kinda like plastic used in Mail.

I feel the same way about the design. Way too bland for my taste. =/ All greys now. I miss the nice and bright aqua colors. It just seems more rigid and..PC-esque now when I look at it. I know I'll get used to it later on but I can't help but notice it now.

If they design Leopard like iTunes 7 it will look like a bad microsoft design. :laugh: They should have keep the Aqua and redesign it a little.

The design is the only bad thing in iTunes everything else is awesome.
