New iPods, smaller iPad and iPhone 5 in early 2011?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

Word on the street is that there will be a revised set of Apple devices coming soon (as if that’s a surprise), specifically an iPod shuffle with a touchscreen display, a 7″ iPad for early next year, and a fifth generation iPhone as early as next January.

We would guess that the 7″ iPad is the focus, since it would make the device all the more appealing in a smaller form factor. Time will tell what the items will be, but at least we know that there are always more Apple products falling from the tree.

iPhone 3.0 OS reveals new iPhones, iPods

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on March 19th, 2009

iPhone 3.0 features cut-and-paste, a whole lot moreThere are always rumors of a new iPhone model, but how about two new iPhone models and a couple of new iPod touches? It looks like a deconstruction of the beta 3.0 build provided to developers this week has uncovered product code “iPhone2,1” found before plus a newer, “iPhone3,0.”

The iPhone 3G is identified as “iPhone1,2,”. The current iPod touch is “iPod2,1”, but models “iPod2,2” and “iPod3,1” have both been rooted out of the binary. We would likely see new iPhone models in June.

iPods turned into iPod speakers

iPods turned into iPod speakersCheck out this pair of iPods that have been turned into iPod speakers. The original iPod scroll wheels were removed and replaced with a pair of speakers. This particular DIY project is a bit expensive at around $100 (he needed to replace both the front and back panels since the old ones had too many scratches to count), although I don’t see why a smart shopper couldn’t do it for a bit less.

IPod speakers for an iPod. Makes sense. Let’s not go crazy though. We don’t need to see Zune speakers for Zunes and iPhone speakers for your iPhone. I’m just kidding. We love any and all clever mods, even when they get a bit redundant.

Toys ‘R’ Us to sell iPods & Eee PCsToys ‘R’ Us long known as the place where a kid can be a kid, will now be offering iPods and Eee PCs. They aren’t new to electronics, but they’ve never been big on gadgetry in general, except for their Zune sales that began last year.

Now they will be offering iPods in an “iPod boutique,” where you can purchase shuffles, nanos, touches and accessories all in the hopes that they meet their bottom line. I can see it now. An “iPod boutique,” with no employee in sight. The Eee PC will be offered in black and white, with 7-inch Linux and XP versions available for $269 and $299.

Limited Edition Simpsons iPods
Crazy about the Simpsons, aren’t you? Your wife probably has a tall blue beehive and your youngest can’t stop sucking on her pacifier, right? You tell your religious neighbor to shut up all the time. Well, I’ve got something that will fit right into your life that you probably don’t have. A limited edition Simpsons iPod.

They come in several sizes with your choice of three different custom engravings on the back. You can get the Bart Sk8 logo, Homer saying D’Oh! and a Homer Tested insignia. They come in iPod Classic in 160 or 80GB, iPod Nano in 8 or 4GB, iPod Shuffle in 2 or 1GB and the iPod Touch in 32, 16 or 8GB. Each is limited to only 2000 units and are numbered. I’m a little disappointed that there’s no comic book guy.

Hercules i-XPS SoundBox Portable Speaker for iPods
The i-XPS Soundbox is probably designed for those who want to chill by the pool or at the beach, or wherever, but the first thing I thought when I saw these is that they are downright fugly. The portable speaker will enclose and suffocate your iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod Mini, iPod Classic, and other MP3 Players.

It has an integrated mini jack cable connection that connects it to the speakers through the headphone jack on the your MP3 Player. Then just zip it up to keep your MP3 player safe. It’s powered by 2 AAA batteries. I know you can’t wait to dress your iPod up as either Stone, Splash, or Spray design.
