The iTunes phone

So the new gadgets are out, and the punditry begins. It looks as though overall, the reception for the iTunes phone is going to be pretty lukewarm. I regard this as the first in a line of phones, each better than the last. The fact that the phone only stores around 100 songs isn’t the issue — that’s all my shuffle stores, and I’m perfectly happy with that. No, for me, the issue is the hardware: it’s pretty ugly. Give the market a handset like the RAZR. Now we’re talking!

Moving on to iTunes 5, I like the new L&F, but agree that Apple need to get consistent with their window themes in OS X. Things are getting messy.

Finally, the iPod nano: now that looks to be a splendid wee addition to the iPod family.
