  • “.. And now, lets talk a little about the 5G ipod. The 5G ipod is an amazing peice of hardware, a great screen, we already sold 15 million videos for it! people really like it.

    One more thing… a few months ago we did something bold, we dropped our best selling ipod minis and introduced the ipod nano instead.

    And, boy, did it pay off.

    So… today… were going to do something bold again. This has been in the works since before the 5G ipod.

    As far as buttons go, the ipod clickwheel is the best solution, all of our competitors are trying to copy it. We don’t know how to make it better.

    What can be better then a clickwheel? ... (pulls out the video ipod)... that’s right, NO buttons.

    This is NOT a touchscreen, you can’t use a touchscreen for video you’ll get fingerprints all over it.

    This is something truley amazing, the future is here.

    You control this with gestures, that’s right, gestures.


    Wow. Just wow.

    *long applause*

    But, with such an amazing device, with such a big screen in such a small form factor… we need content.

    The 5G ipod proved that people want portable video if its done right, so…

    We have more content deals, great partners… and yes, movies..”

  • Apple introduces the iOff: a tablet which is NOT a computer but some kind of controlling-panel for managing all your media-equipment in the house.
    e.g.: you will be able to control your mac, like the Apple Remote, with the new iOff. You will see the same screen on your iOff as on your Macintosh.

    All appliances supporting InfraRed, Bluetooth and Wifi will be able to be controled from the iOff

    wouldn’t THAT be great
