For those interested...."the Steve" will be on CNBC "Street Signs" within the hour to talk about the iPod Nano and the new iTunes enabled phone. Should be pretty interesting.

Does anyone else think it looks kinda stretched?
Yeah, it does look longer, but I'm wondering if that's only because it's slightly thinner than the mini. My question is how it holds 25,000 photos. I thought that was the capacity of the 60 GB iPod... ?

Wow, I can't believe they actually did it.

Yawn. Great new gadget, but no ground broken. Too bad no top-end video with downloadable content.

The phone is garbage. I'm surprised Steve even stood on stage to announce that POS.

Gorgeous!!! :eek: :D

This will kill the shuffle.
Agree that it will have an effect on the shuffle market.

I bet we will see reduced prices on the Shuffle soon. Maybe something like $70(512MB) and $120(1GB).

What no firewire? Seems only to be USB 2.0. My Cube doesn't have that what a bummer, would have got one otherwise
