  • New 4G Nano all but official

    iPod accessory maker Hama – for some strange reason – put out a bunch of iPod Nano 4G cases at IFA 2008, essentially outing the new Nano to within an inch of its life. As folks are pointing out, Hama is the real deal when it comes to accessories and isn’t just some small-fry OEM attempting to drum up interest… or is it? Check out more 4G Nano coverage. Read More

  • This is not the iPhone nano

    With all the talk of an iPhone nano swirling in the blogosphere, some guy named Neo at MacNN thinks he has the answer. We begin with what I wager is the worst line ever written on a Macintosh blog: The reasoning behind this viewpoint has it merits and I’m not about to dispute that position being that they also held the view that such an Apple phone may arrive next spring.

  • Intel's Atom vs VIA's Nano: apples vs oranges, but still


    We’re all hearing a lot about Intel’s Atom range of processors these days, likely because of the tiny laptop revolution (or whatever you want to call it). While VIA’s Nano is not competing directly with Atom as, say, GeForce does with Radeon, they are in the same ballpark and when it comes to low-power, general-purpose setups for things like tiny laptops or tablets, people… Read More

  • New wooden cases and speakers for the iPod

  • VIA 'Isaiah' chips official, now called 'Nano'

    VIA’s 64-bit “Isaiah” processor, which we’ve reported here and here, has now been made official, taking on the “Nano” moniker. The chip uses a 65-nanometer process, measures 21mm x 21mm, and uses the same socket as existing VIA C7 processors, which should make things easier on OEMs. It’s being pitched for more mainstream desktop and laptop… Read More

  • Icebar waterproof speakers for your Nano


    These waterproof speakers seem to hit a pretty good combination of price, looks, and functionality — assuming they sound good. The set can hang by a strap for the shower, or you can use the built-in stand to put it in the soap dish if you’re the bath type. It’s only for iPod Nanos, but there are plenty of you with those out there. The touch wheel area has a little membrane… Read More

  • Defective batteries causing iPod Nano fireworks

    Just caught news on the Today Show (in between some Eliot Spitzer segment and another, less interesting but more sensational Eliot Spitzer segment) of the iPod Nano batteries causing sparks to shoot out of units marked with model number MA099J/A (pictured right). Apparently the problem was found back in January but wasn’t reported by Apple to the Japanese trade and economy ministry… Read More

  • Purple iPod nano spotted in ad, due soon?

    [photopress:purplenano.jpg,full,center] Taking a close look at this Circuit City ad, we can see what looks to be a purple iPod nano. When you mouse over the electronic version of the ad, a separate model number pops up as well, further fueling speculation that a purple nano could be on the way.

    [photopress:tatanano.jpg,full,center] Meet the world’s least expensive car, the Nano. The car costs only $2,500, gets 50 miles per gallon and is supposed to bring the gift of rapid transportation to the world’s poor. It also looks a lot like Biggs’ car, which we often tease him about.

  • CrunchGear's Reviewing the Unknown Contest Update

    Entries are rolling in and you guys are GREAT at making up stuff about stuff. Take this one, for example: The teenage years are by far the best and easiest part of parenting.

  • Make your iPod Nano box into a portable speaker set

    I still have the box for my 5G iPod sitting on some shelf somewhere, because it was just too nice to throw away. Of course, I’m a pack rat and keep worthless stuff all the time.

  • iPod Nano sets man's pants on fire in airport

    This sounds kind of dubious but apparently an Atlanta man named Danny Williams was walking in an airport and his iPod Nano started to flame up. A “glossy piece of paper” protected him from life-threatening burns. Apple is being good sports about it and is offering him a new iPod after Willams went to the local news station with the story. The reporter got no quote from Apple… Read More

  • iPhone, iPod touch output video better than classic, nano

    Wow. Don’t expect top-notch video quality from the iPod classic or iPod nano while using Apple’s recently released Component AV Cable. Compared to the the iPhone and iPod touch, the classic and nano eat it. Whereas the iPhone and touch look fairly similar to iTunes-puchased video as played back on a computer monitor, the classic and nano distort the picture like nobody’s… Read More

  • Bloops! Apple Legal Essentially Confirms Fat Nano Existence [Updated]


    Gizmodo got a letter from Apple asking them to take down the images of the little fat Nanos we’ve been seeing all day, which in legal talk means blood will soak the halls of Cupertino tonight as the leakers are tortured long into the morning. [Update: Apple’s lawyers came at us and demanded we remove the photo because it “violates Apple’s copyrights”. So… Read More

  • Rumor: iPod Nano Gets Redesign, New Colors

    Well, it’s been 11 months since we’ve seen a new nano and there’s a bit of news, albeit from the rumor mill, about the new nano that is set to drop some time before the end of the year, possibly at the Apple Expo in Paris. The above chop photoshop job from 9 to 5 Mac is obviously not the real thing, but the new redesign will entail a screen that takes up half of its facade. Read More
