That's an extremely vague rumor and seems like it could easily be started due to the Wifi rumor.

What a circle jerk. Social is better than by yourself, whenever possible.

<grin>

It sounded to me like Engadget was claiming that Apple was going to start some "service" based on the rumored WiFi functionality. I dunno - seems a bit unlikely to me, but I suppose they could tie it all into .Mac somehow?

Hopefully its just a touch iPod with Wifi. Whatever it is (iPod, Circle iPhone Revision) it will be cool.

The Circle= At&T offer that enables EDGE. The iPod's firmware is the same, but when you buy the EDGE plan, AT&T unlocks the EDGE inside.... Soon to be hacked by yet another 16 year-old.:)

Don't know anything about EDGE, but can't there be something to make sure the EDGE can only be used with AT&T?

Yeah, it's going on right now inside of all of the iPhones. You can only connect to AT&T because of SIM cards, so I think that is what might be inside of the new iPods. You can activate the SIM card inside of the iPod if you want. If not, just stick with wifi.:D

If there is something to this rumor I hope "The Circle" is not what it will be called. Im sorry but "The Circle" sounds like some bad porn or worse. Apple fans would never hear the end of that one...

And what about "Le Cercle", huh? :p Hey, there is no way on a cold day in hell that Apple will put a SIM card in an iPod! Not for the price of the current models at least (and on top of the expected add-ons)

Perhaps you nailed it - instead of signing up The Beatles, Apple is announcing that they're picking up the entire back catalogue of The Circle Jerks.

:D

This sounds very intriguing to me, some people are indicating it could be content generated by Apple - that would be weird and a wonderful kick in the arse to the Tv companies. Others say it could be sharing a la Zune or similar... as I said, intriguing....

Content sharing, meh.

"The Circle" would be a nice name for a recording label, however, which has also been rumored. Like, "You want to be part of The Circle?"
