I know this has been overdone but I was wondering what people's predictions are for the next iPod or iDigitalDevice and when they think that it will be coming out? ( I've been waiting to get one... even though they're really good already.)
Backlight like...what? like the whole case lights up? no thanks, i like my battery drain just the way it is the screens themselves are already backlight, you knowOriginally posted by cliffm
I just ordered a 20 gigger and now am wishing I would've waited a bit more. Releasing an updated ipod the same day as Ilife make sense. Maybe we will see Aluminum Ipods? Or peraps a backlit one? How about diferent colored Ipods? Its kinda boring with all of them being white
In my opinion, in the dark, it's not hard to feel my way around 5 different buttons. . . Sounds more like a niché thing to me, it would simply drain the battery and the affordability. . .Originally posted by cliffm
Backlit controls like the 17" PowerBook Keyodard.
yes, yes, yes! line in, mic in, and a built in mic!! please!!!!!! that would make it the perfect device for me! but i think i will buy one anyway sooner or later....Originally posted by cliffm
How about the ability to record? an on board mic for recording lectures? Good for sleeping in class
Aluminum iPods would probably be neat looking, but I still like the looks of the white iPod. I don't really think that the white is boring.Originally posted by cliffm

Yes, that would be very nice. Should be quite doable, and I believe Apple are building ogg support into QT (you can already add it yourself).Originally posted by CrackedButter
A BIOS update that allows the ipod to read ogg files would be nice.
nice idea, but Bluetooth is slower than usb 1.1, so music transfers will take forever (well, not forever, but when you're used to fireweire it's really really really slow)Originally posted by pmh
Now that would be REAL nice. Trade music with a PB/12,15,17 or other BT enabled iPOD's. Of course these music sources would be auto-discovered using rendezvous, and perhaps advertise what music they were willing to share.... So you walk into a room, and can "see" the other iPOD's via Bluetooth and Rendezvous. An negotiate music transfers with them. All wireless of course.
