Rumor: OS X Making Its Way To iPods

Like this, except not crappy

It wouldn’t really feel like a Monday without an Apple rumor, would it? The latest one to hit the wire involves OS X and the iPod. Seems an analyst over at research firm Piper Jaffray thinks that because the iPhone has OS X, the iPod is going to be following suit.

Normally I’d dismiss these claims but it seems to make sense. The iPod is due for an update soon and the success of the iPhone seems like a great place to start when it comes down to the R&D. An iPod with OS X and WiFi would be a lot more kick ass then an iPhone. Imagine all the applications you could run and the reliability of Mac OS X. Only Steve Jobs’ next big announcement will confirm or destroy this rumor.
