I read about this, its name is going to be the "Bling Bling" iPod, and its casing will be platinum and diamonds.

50 cent and snoop dogg already have one. That's going to be the main selling point.

With special edition engraving using quality cut diamonds to spell out "bling bling."

special edition 40GB iPod

Will rumored special edition 40GB iPod include COLOR screen
capable of displaying images in
iPhoto and QuickTime?
Imagine watching a downloaded DVD on your iPod instead of the airline's inflight movie selection. :rolleyes:
How about BlueTooth for wireless downloads? ;)
Breast pocket size subwoofer peripheral is out because of potential danger to those with pacemakers.:(

good

They need a special edition...

The current 3rd Gen iPods don't cause Pod envy yet (I have a 5GB).

What would be cool, are iPod faceplates... The idea seems kinda cheesy at first, but look at what it's done for cell phones... It'll help people personalize them, and help Apple sell more...

Now, a special edition 40gb iPod... I'd be torn between selling my old iPod and buying a new one, and buying a new wireless keyboard and mouse for my PowerBook...

If the iPod has some sort of bluetooth connectivity, or is able to record, that would be really cool... We'll just have to wait.

Special Edition iPod could really mean anything, I think. I suppose we shall see.

Twice I've been only pixels away from buying an iPod, but I have had some cash issues the last month or two. I have a birthday coming up in another month and a half though :) maybe somebody will surprise me.

I think I'd prefer the simple regular iPod, if BlingBling is the special :) I always thought the BlingBling style was pretty tacky.

I hear that these special edition iPods will come complete with a free dual G5. Apparently they've been stockpiling the G5's ready for this promotion and that's why no one has received theirs yet!

Sorry, but I'm going nuts now! If I don't hear something about dual G5's from Apple tomorrow or VERY soon afterwards I think I'm gonna... well... something!

Please let it be a new remote!

I really hope it's a new remote.

The best remote I've ever seen is the one that comes with the iRiver CD/MP3 players. It's nice to be able to view the song title information on the remote allowing for the iPod to be kept safe and snug.

i'm guessing it's just going to be a colored ipod case, following the new ad campaign's color scheme. it'll be like 1999 all over again.

Three words ... voice recongition navigation.

I promise, I won't post this again (already wrote about it in the original message about iPod peripherals), but if anyone from Apple reads this, then maybe it'll spark an idea.
