Apple Introduces New iPod touch

The new iPod touch is out. It has a new design: chrome rim, with a tapered back similar to the iPhone 3G, but thinner.

It has a 3.5-inch display and built-in Wi-Fi (802.11b and g). Like the iPhone and unlike the previous iPod Touch, the new model has a built-in speaker and external volume controls. It has the sensors such as the accelerometer (that allows the display to change its orientation depending on you hold the device), and Apple’s Multi-Touch interface.

There is also internal support for the optional Nike+iPod feature (It doesn’t require a receiver but you still need the in-shoe transmitter) as well as on-the-fly genius playlist creation, all included in the new iPhone 2.1 software.

Apple says the device is smaller and lighter than the previous version. It has a rated battery life of up to 36 hours for music and 6 hours for video on a single charge.

It also comes with new prices: $229 for the 8GB, $299 for the 16GB, and $399 for the 32GB. That is $100 cheaper than before.

The $1000 iPhone Application

Upset that the Apple iPhone is no longer exclusive enough? Then, App Store has the perfect downloadable application for you, called I Am Rich.

The program displays a red gem, has no function but to display your wealth to others through ownership, and costs $1000.

The description in iTunes reads “The red icon on your iPhone or iPod Touch always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this. It’s a work of art with no hidden function at all…”

As kottke said, “For some, the iPhone is already an obvious display of wealth and I Am Rich is commenting on that. Plus, buying more than you need as an indication of wealth is practically an American core value for a growing segment of the population.”

Unfortunately you wont be able to download it anymore. It has since been removed from the Apple Store for no reason… Though, the “I am Rich” application is one of those reasons why you have to make sure your iTunes asks for you permission to buy apps before purchasing !

New Apple iPhone 3G

Almost one year after the original Apple iPhone went on sale, Apple has unveiled a new 3G version of its popular iPhone that will go on sale on 11 July.

The addition of 3G support is a big win : This will allow users to surf the internet at faster speeds than is currently possible on the original iPhone. If data speeds hold up as Jobs demonstrated, the new iPhone really will put the internet in your pocket.

It will also feature built-in GPS technology, which will enable users to use their iPhone as a satellite-navigation device both in-car and on-foot using Google Maps.

iPhone 3G isn’t perfect, but there’s a lot to like here : Though the iPhone 3G is thinner at the edges than its predecessor.

The 8GB model will come in black only, while Apple promises the 16GB version in back and white.

In the US the phone retails for US$199 for the 8GB model (down from $399) and US$299 for the 16GB version (down from $599).

Indeed, Steve Jobs said that one of the main reasons people had given for not buying the handset was that it was too expensive.

It will be rolled out to 70 countries worldwide over the next few months.

More than six million iPhones had been sold globally since the device first went on sale in the US in July 2007.

"Golden Age" Apple MacBook Air

“Golden Age” is the name of this new, er, product, the world’s first Apple MacBook Air to be fully crystallised with 12,000 “dazzling” Swarovski elements.

The reason it looks so darn shiny is that the crystals are specially coated with 24k gold from underneath so that the transparent crystals can reflect the true gold colour.

Inspired by a traditional Japanese pattern, each “Golden Age” takes a week to create as each crystal is apparently painstakingly applied one at a time on to the hand-painted surface.

With a limited edition of only 20 pieces worldwide this is described as “undoubtedly the ultimate luxury treat for the person who thought they had everything”. Aside from taste or sense, clearly.

The “Golden Age” is getting a CeBIT debut, but will be shown also at Selfridges, Oxford Street, where the department store will sell one of the 20 “Golden Age” notebooks as of 18th March.
