Apple CEO Steve Jobs held a newscast yesterday afternoon and unveiled several new products and services.
First, Apple introduced the latest family of upgraded iPods. Most notably the new iPod Touch is packed with incredible new features including Appleâ€™s stunning Retina display, FaceTime video calling, HD video recording, Appleâ€™s A4 chip, 3-axis gyro, iOS 4.1, and Game Center. To top that off, its the thinnest and lightest iPod touch ever. It also features up to 40 hours of music playback and seven hours of video playback on a single battery charge.
The new iPod nano ($149-$179) has been completely redesigned with Multi-Touch, which lets you navigate your music collection by simply tapping or swiping a finger on the display. Nearly half the size and weight of the previous generation, the new iPod nano features a polished aluminum and glass enclosure with a built-in clip. Lastly, the Shuffle gets even smaller (believe it or not) with a diminutive form factor and an amazing price ($49).
Apple tv was also revamped. It offers the simplest way to watch your favorite HD movies and TV shows on your HD TV for the breakthrough price of just $99. With Apple TV, you can choose from the largest online selection of HD movies to rent, including first-run movies for just $4.99, and the largest online selection of HD TV show episodes to rent â€” from ABC, ABC Family, Fox, Disney Channel, and BBC America â€” for just 99 cents.
Apple also introduced iTunes 10 with Ping, a new social network for music that lets you follow your favorite artists and friends to discover what music theyâ€™re talking about, listening to, and downloading.
