Boy it’s a big day if you’re an iTunes fan. Steve Jobs announced both the iTunes phone from Motorola and iTunes 5. They also announced a Harry Potter iPod, which ships with the Harry Potter books in audio book format. I’m still not completely on the iPod bandwagon, at least not a full fledged iPod. I love my shuffle and that’s pretty much all I need in a music player. If they ever release a “Jazz essentials” iPod, crammed full of Jazz albums I might break down.
I heard the announcements and thought, “I wonder when they’ll be available?”. Too many years of Microsoft announcements have dulled my thinking I guess. Apple doesn’t talk much until something is shipping. Microsoft just seems to talk a lot.
edit:Almost forgot about the iPod nano, their flash based iPod that everyone was expecting.
