I'm digging the new Nanos. I've wanted an FM tuner for a long time. But seriously, I've got enough iPods sitting around, and they all still work, too.

Here you go iPhone owners;

At today's "It's Only Rock and Roll" media event, Apple announced the availability of iPhone OS 3.1 for the iPhone and iPod touch. The new firmware will be able to take advantage of the new Genius feature for apps to help users find new apps that may be of interest based on past purchases and will also allow wireless downloading of new pre-cut ringtones. The full list of 3.1 features and updates includes the following:
- Improved syncing for music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and photos
- iTunes U content organization
- Redeem iTunes Gift Cards, codes, and certificates in the App Store
- Display available iTunes account credits in the App Store and iTunes Store
- Save video from Mail and MMS into Camera Roll- Option to "Save as new clip" when trimming a video on iPhone 3GS
- Better iPhone 3G Wi-Fi performance when Bluetooth is turned on
- Remotely lock iPhone with a passcode via MobileMe
- Use Voice Control on iPhone 3GS with Bluetooth headsets
- Paste phone numbers into the keypad
- Option to use Home button to turn on accessibility features on iPhone 3GS
- Warn when visiting fraudulent websites in Safari (anti-phishing)
- Improved Exchange calendar syncing and invitation handling
- Fixes issue that cause some app icons to display incorrectly

iPhone OS 3.1 is available and is a free download for iPhone customers and iPod touch users already running iPhone OS 3.0. iPod touch users running earlier firmware versions can upgrade to iPhone OS 3.1 for $4.95.

Going to pick up a nano when I get a chance.

Installed Snow Leopard the other day. Not a huge change, but went off without a hitch.

Why is Apple trying to make the touch into a game player? That's just silly...

I am very impressed with iTunes 9 on Windows. All throughout the application it runs snappier and the instant, Spotlight-like search results from all search fields feel quick, too.

I don't know how much of the code they re-wrote, but it finally feels like Apple has written a non-shit Windows application. Love the increased sync'ing options, and especially the ability to now put the column browser (genre, artist, etc) on the lefthand side of your music library. Very handy for widescreen monitor peeps and those who prefered the Zune software.

As far as the iPod Touch, do not buy a new one. Repeat: do not buy a new one. It was very obvious that Apple planned to have a video camera in the new Touches much like the new Nanos, but there was a story floating around about manufacturing or supply problems causing a delay in implementing that. There is even a little space left empty inside the new Touch that would fit an iPhone-like camera perfectly, so hold off until they revise them again in a few months.

New Nano is nice...if I didn't like pseudo-PDA that my iPod Touch has become I would spring for one of those.

Truth be told I still love my 3rd-gen 'Fat Nano'. Just feels sturdier and when this one breaks I'll probably spring for a cheap 8gb fat nano again for jogging.

Got to see the new nano's in person today. They look cheap... really cheap. Not to mention the screen size is a very weird aspect ratio.
