    Steve Jobs Reportedly Says "No Plans" To Discontinue iPod Classic


    The iPod Classic is one of those Mac products that, like the Mac mini, is constantly rumored to be facing its imminent demise. But, the 160 GB classic still hangs in there — its magnetic drive and scroll wheel offering the capacity that none of its flash-based siblings can’t even hold a candle to. A reader told MacRumors that he received an email from Steve Jobs in response to… Read More

  • iPod Nano Kind Of Hacked

    iPod Nano Kind Of Hacked

    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

    Leather iPod Nano Watchband Wants To Be Tough

    Is it just me, or is this iPod watchband thing getting old? Jobs makes one off-hand comment during a product announcement and suddenly a cottage industry pops up. Read More

  • My Week With The iPod Nano Watch

    My Week With The iPod Nano Watch

    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… Read More

    Koostik Wood iPod "Dock" Amplifies Sound The Old Fashioned Way

    This probably isn’t up your alley if you’re into listening to really awesome, fairly loud music all the time, but if you rely on your iPod or iPhone and don’t need a lot of volume, the Koostik might be your style. It’s based on similar principles as acoustic guitars and other wood instruments: sound is channeled from where it is emitted from the phone to those big… Read More

  • iPod Nano Proves Watches Are Not Out Of Style

    People have been remarking on how “watches are dying.” Referring to the fact that some people are choosing their mobile phones over watches. I say that these people probably didn’t have very nice watches to begin with, but that is beside the point. The point is why is it that the iPod Nano comes out, has a time function that displays an analog clock, and the geek world that is… Read More

    Blue's Mikey: The Big, Nice Microphone For iPods/iPhones

    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… Read More

    Is Apple Finally Poised To Cut The Insanely Annoying Cords To My Head?

    Of all the annoyances in my life, the one I deal with most regularly has to be the untangling of headphone wires. Several times a day I reach into my pocket and pull out a wad of cords that look as if they have been intentionally tangled up by some sort of pocket gnome. It drives me insane. Wireless earphones are nothing new, but the best ones usually don’t fit in your pocket: the number… Read More

    Shanzai Finally Builds Fake iPod Nanos

    I just bought my sister an iPod Nano and she really seems to like it. However, I don’t know how much she’d like a fake iPod Nano from the Shanzai markets. This wee fake comes in two sizes, 1.5 or 1.8 inches, and even comes in multiple colors. No pricing, but given my experience with Chinese junk I wouldn’t recommend picking it up. Read More

    The iPod Nano Wristwatch Gets Slightly Less Ridiculous

    The original iPod Nano watch was a little raw, and the follow-up from Incipio wasn’t much of an improvement. And let’s be honest, this new one isn’t going to win any awards either. But at least if you want to embarrass yourself publicly, you have more options than ever now. Read More

    Going The Distance: Nike+ GPS Vs. RunKeeper

    As someone who ostensibly tries to keep fit, I’ve found the best way to pretend to lose weight is to fiddle around with iPhone apps during my workout. First, it reduces the mind-crushing pain of exercise and allows me to go to a place in myself where I can avoid the boredom of exertion. To that end I decided to test out the new Nike+ GPS app alongside an old favorite, RunKeeper. Both… Read More
