Apple Update: The Beat Goes On

http://www.macrumors.com/

Tomorrow Apple announces stuffs. Mostly iPod updates, it seems.



So what are we betting on?

The Beatles on iTunes?

A 3.5" iPod video screen? (I've been calling this one since before the iPhone was even announced)

A complete revamp of the iPod Nano?

All of the above??

Who's excited?!

I think the Full Screen iPod is coming. Now that the iPhone has it, it has to hit the iPod. I also like the wireless concept. Sweet.

I read that the wireless concept has a good possibility of NOT being included in the iPod update because it could damage the sale of iPhones and anger AT&T.

But it would be pretty sweet.

Also announced at the "Beat Goes On" media event as Steve Jobs' classic "One More Thing..." was a wifi-accessible version of the iTunes Music Store. The new version allows downloading music from iTunes directly to your iPod touch.

• Same pricing & selection as standard iTunes store

Apple Announces Starbucks Partnership



In addition to the iPod related releases today, Apple is pleased to announce a partnership with Starbucks.
When you get near a Starbucks a fifth button will come up in the WiFi music store - you may have been in a Starbucks wondering what song is that playing? Now you can buy it with a tap of your finger.

The service will reportedly display the last 10 songs played in that Starbucks.

No mention yet what happens when you're in range of 4 Starbucks or more at the same time.

8GB iPhone Price Drop, 4GB iPhone Discontinued


An additional announcement from the "Beat Goes On" media event today - the iPhone will receive a price drop, moving the 8GB model down to $399 from $599 starting immediately. The 4GB iPhone model is being dropped, due to intense consumer concentration on the 8GB model.

With the current pricing, the 8GB iPhone is now only $100 more than the new iPod touch model at the same storage capacity.

A little bit of a letdown with that announcement - I guess I was expecting something more revolutionary.

Yeah, I agree. I'd be more geeked up if the iPod Touches were bigger. 8GB and 16 GB? I still have a 20GB, but it's getting close to being filled. I can't imagine ever buying a new iPod that had even less capacity than what I'm used to.

I know, I sound like a spoiled brat.

I won't bother with an iPod Touch until they get bigger, either. I still have a little room left on my 60GB iPod.
