    Apple's Store for Business has a "new" flag on the iPod link.

    It may simply be a holdover from the previous updates, as the graphic still describes the "new 20 GB model" which was introduced last year.

    As mentioned on another iPod thread, a lot of the Apple special stores have never lost the "New" splash on the iPods.

    Odd.

    From what I could tell, all the Apple International store sites I visited did not have the "new" sticker.

    The iPods were updated some time ago, and I doubt that Apple would overlook their business store site for that long.

    It may well be that an Apple web programmer may have recently entered the wrong filename in WebObjects--or perhaps updated the main page a little early? ;)

    The Higher-Ed Store has the "new" sticker as well. It has been like that for the past few months.:rolleyes:

    I noticed this when I visited my Apple store two weeks ago. I was browsing via a 12" Powerbook in store , and I thought it was kind of odd that it said new on the iPod's header. At the time I thought I was looking at the regualr Apple Store, not the one for Business. But now I know better.

    The new sticker has been up there since the release of the new iPods last summer, Education store is the same way as are about half the other international stores out there.

    The Graphic is still the same underneath, new 29GB model for Mac and windows...

    It's nothing new...

    Hmm...that's strange. Hopefully, a web programmer accidentally put the "new" flag on too early, suggesting updates very soon.

    So besides a size upgrade (10,20,40), are we expecting anything new with the iPod? I can see FW800 - but anything else, video support?

    IMHO FW800 is not likely at this stage - especially as the recently upgraded iMacs didn't get FW800 either

    But my wishlist includes:
    - Firmware support for ACC
    - Bluetooth support
    - Mic. in
    - Replaceable battery

    Anything else (video support, FM tuner) a nice bonus

    Just hope we get some announcement soon, because now that I have saved up the $$$'s, the waiting is killing me... :(

    this image:

    http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/sp_hpimage_reseller.gif

    which i see when i go to the US apple store:

    http://store.apple.com/AppleStore/WebObjects/BizCustom?qprm=78313


    reflects a green "new" tag which has not been on the site for the past three weeks that I've been going to the store everyday. however, there was just some simple grey text in the image that said "new", and it was a carryover.

    the image that is on the front of the store now, is a new image, at least it's new in comparison to the last three weeks.

    Notice how the rest of the store is up to date, new Xserves, etc. So why wouldn't they bother to fix the iPod one while they were updating it. I think an insider may know about new iPods and is playing with us. Because if it was old, they would've taken the new sign away. If it was new it would have a bigger iPod than 20GB. Makes you wonder.

    i bet its just a mistake, what kind of web builder for apple would pull a stunt like that. he would only do that if he wanted to have his ass handed to him on the streets.

    PFFFFT!!!!

    anyways, looks about the right time for iPod updates.. seems Apple's on a roll, if the roll continues, it's either iBooks or iPods being updated... besides, there was a "leaked" document put up by Toshiba which had info about a new 40 gig drive, so...

    Why not?

    aghh, probably just a lazy web designer..
