    The "next big thing" will be some form of wireless iPod that can interact with Airport Express... September is the time to look out for this. (Inside track apparently...)

    At best, there will be an iPod accessory to do this (which would be very nice and useful). No way - no way - are they going to announce a new iPod a month and a half after announcing the 4Gs. I could see the accessory happening, though.

    how do you know this? although it makes sense that iPod will interact w/ Airport Express in the near future but how do you know that it will happen next month?

    I'm not going to say - obviously it's not a dead cert... but there could be a tie-in with the 60Gb iPods around the corner....

    Not to be rude or anything, but I frankly don't believe a word you are saying. How did you get this information? If you work for Apple, you risk getting fired for saying this.

    It's going to be just like WWDC, all the newbies from slashdot post thread after thread, post after post about how we are going to have a wireless iPod, G5 PowerBook, 3GHz G5, and other things like Apple is going to split into to companies, or Steve is going to be fired.

    Although I don't believe in what your saying, I hope your right.

    it will be a lovely accessory, perhaps, but there's no way they *can* add it without a) increasing the size of the iPod, keeping in mind that each mm is precious to those engineers; b) causing serious power drain, and c) redesigning the iPod to have a plastic case instead of metal, for the sake of any internal antenna.

    My guess is something like the iTrip, but for 802.11x instead of FM.

    ok if the new 4G ipods actually had hardware to enable them to have wifi we would have known by now. people have already taken apart their 4g ipod and almost immediately they would have known if the new ipods contained a radio and antenna inside.

    I don't believe it, either but the guy said "some form of wireless iPod", he didn't say the 4G would have wireless capability. BTW, we still don't know if Apple bought does 60 GB hard drives from Toshiba or not.
