I remember my favorite Sony Walkman. It was yellow. And bulky. And slow. And ugly. I loved it. It played cassettes. Cassettes! I took it to Australia one summer. It’s still something I think about from time to time. Just me and my music in this yellow player thousands of miles from home.
So when Apple asked if there was a particular color of the new iPod nano that I wanted to test out… → Read More
It looks as though the forthcoming seventh-generation iPod nano will undergo some hardware changes, according to some allegedly leaked pictures. Apple may be bringing back the camera – but losing the clip. → Read More
A charming couple in Ottawa, Canada, Chrys and Dom Coballe, is making some handsome, if expensive, iPod Nano watch bands that pop out and even turn at an angle to offer multiple viewing angles. Although I think the hey day of the iPod Nano watch is over, they seem far too charming to just ignore. → Read More
It’s an iPod nano watch band for women. Pink, purple, black and white for $29.95. Moving on. → Read More
Another day, another Kickstarter project. This one is a little iPod Nano dock that looks like a Glade Plug-In. It plugs right into the wall and then you pop the Nano on top. An internal hollow amplifies the sound and, well, that’s it. → Read More
For those who like to incorporate tech with exercise, there’s nothing better than Nike Plus. It’s simple, cheap and fun, especially since you can compete against friends. The HEX Sport Band offers easy functionality with Nike Plus and adds a bit of fashion into the mix. → Read More
It’s not much of a hack – JWhelton simply removed an app and looked at the underlying OS – but this is proof of concept stuff that shows that the iPod Nano is essentially a stripped-down iOS device with severe limitations. → Read More
About a month ago, we wrote about how the TikTok and LunaTik multi-touch watch kits were about to become the all-time leader in funding through Kickstarter, the crowdsourced fundraising startup. The project needed over $345,000 to grab the title. Well, it got it — and a whole lot more.
When the first iPod Nano watch straps appeared on the scene in September, I was non-plussed. I’ve seen plenty of wrist-mounted MP3 players, phones, and other junk to understand that anything you wear on your wrist and still have to connect a pair of headphones to is bad news. In general, you look goofy and feel goofier. But there was something about the Nano watch. Maybe it was because Apple… → Read More
We’ve talked a lot about Diaspora, the open-source Facebook-alternative, in recent months. One of the reasons for that is the massive success they had raising money on the crowdsourced fund-raising site, Kickstarter. The project raised over $200,000 from nearly 6,500 backers in just 39 days. Now a new project has already blown that tally out of the water: an iPod nano-based multi-touch wristwatch… → Read More
You knew someone was going to do it, it was just a question of time. The real question is does the iPod Nano actually work as a wristwatch? Well, that depends on your definition of “works”. → Read More
Well, there you be. A brand new iPod nano that gave its life just so you could spend seven and a half seconds gazing at its circuity. Amazing. And now we’re moving…[iFixit] → Read More
Remember the last generation of iPod Nano? It made a great little video recorder, but ended up being banned in some gyms due to privacy concerns. You have to wonder, did Apple do such a complete redesign on the Nano because of that controversy? Well whatever the reason, there are still traces of that video capability in the firmware. Apple also left in the ability to display a photo slideshow via… → Read More
I remember my first iPod very well. Shockingly, I was a little late to the party, waiting until the fourth generation iPod (now called the “iPod classic”) in 2004 to join the revolution. And I only bought one because I was planning to drive out to California (from Ohio) and I wanted enough music storage to last me the entire trip. I remember unboxing it and thinking: “wow, I can store all my… → Read More
Not much to see here besides cases for the unannounced and unreleased iPod nano — or shuffle. → Read More
Apple has an event on the books for this coming Wednesday and it’s widely expected that Steve-O will announce new iDevices, specifically an iOS-version of the Apple TV and new iPods. Most of the pre-iTV news is purely speculative as we really don’t know much about it, although it should hit at a lower price point and a new cloud-based iTunes should debut alongside the device. Forget about the … → Read More
We’ve already seen a few pieces of the new iPod touch, which, though it may not be a carbon copy of the iPhone 4 minus the phone, it’ll probably follow the example of previous devices in providing similar functionality.
Who wants an iPod nano case? I’ve three brand new cases from iSkin that want nothing more than to protect your precious iPod nano. These are for the latest camera-equipped models, but they will work just fine for the 4G models too. All you need to do is leave a comment describing why you want one after the jump. Since I have three cases, three different people will win. How fun. → Read More
So you’ve got one of those nifty, new iPod nanos with a camera, eh? Good for you, kind sir. But what’s that? You have camera envy? Why? Oh, it’s because of your tiny lens. Gotcha. → Read More
