It’s easy to forget that the iPod touch didn’t even include a camera until 2010. While such a key feature has been standard on the iPhone since its initial unveiling in 2007, Apple apparently didn’t think it was one of the must-have features of the touch. That changes this year.
With the new iPod touch (the fifth generation, for those keeping score at home), which was unveiled a few weeks ago… → Read More
Apple’s iPhone 5 is sure to get most of the attention today, but the Cupertino company’s press event also saw the unveiling of a drastically revamped iPod Touch meant (once again) to bring iOS to the masses.
First thing’s first — let’s talk price. The new iPod Touch will launch in October, and will cost customers $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB variant. → Read More

Quick! You’ve got three and a half hours (as of my writing this) to pick up a new iPod touch at this solid price — $185 is $45 off the normal $230. 8GB isn’t a lot of space, to be sure, but for a dedicated streaming music and app machine, this is a great deal. Head over to eBay’s daily deal page to pick one up. [via 9to5Mac] → Read More
Yosion is back with the Apple Peel 520. Just like the first device, the Apple moniker is a bit of a lie. You see this device is not made nor endorsed by Jobs & Co. If anything, it’s lawyer bait as it transforms the iPod touch into a fully-functional iPhone. The second generation goes a bit farther than just bringing 3G calling to the device. Yeah, you’re going to like this. → Read More
It’s beginning to look like Apple may have had a very, very merry Christmas. Not that it should surprise anyone given how many of their products were on year-end “best-of” lists. But some data that has started to come in over the past few days points to Apple’s Christmas surge once again being led by the mainstays: the iPhone and iPod touch (and probably the iPad as well).
Since yesterday… → Read More
Well this is potentially huge. A Nielsen survey says that more kids this holiday season are interested in iOS devices than traditional consoles. You know what this means: time to throw your PS3s and Xbox 360s into the village pyre. → Read More
While I rarely am able to get out to tape Dead shows anymore – what with most of the the band-members being dead themselves – this would have been a great help back when I was shipping reel-to-reels all over the country with little notes saying “Check out Ripple on this one. Man, you can hear Jerry’s stomach rub up against the mic stand.” It’s basically a stereo mic that connects to the iPod… → Read More
I’ve been putting this post off for a while, since I decided at the launch of the new iPod touch that I would give Apple the benefit of the doubt and not pursue this particular issue, since hey, it was Apple’s special day, and I didn’t want to spoil it by nagging them. But as CrunchGear’s resident non-expert on imaging devices and sensors, I just have to ask: what the hell is up with the iPod… → Read More
Good news for iOS users: versatile video app VLC has been submitted to the App Store as a universal app, and I see no reason why it should be rejected. Expect to join your iPad brethren in playing a variety of video files without the need to jailbreak or part with your hard-earned gold pieces. → Read More
Not happy with the stock iPod touch’s stock look? Alrighty, head over to Colorware and order up one of its custom painted models, which now includes the latest iPod touch model. → Read More
It’s October 1, which means that you’re average American think Oktoberfest has started. Not true: Munich’s Oktoberfest begins in mid to late September and lasts through October. A minor technicality if all you’re looking to do is celebrate the holiday best known for, well, bier and busen. In any event, there’s a handy iOS App that was just released that can help New York City folk find Oktoberfest… → Read More
So here’s an honest question: how do you guys go about looking for and buying an iPhone/iPad/iPod touch case? Do you go to device-specific sites (like iLounge) and look up case reviews? Troll message boards? Search on Amazon for “iphone case”? Or do you go to Wal-Mart (or wherever), go to the iPhone aisle, and pick up the first thing you see? I haven’t bought a case since the days of the iPod… → Read More
