The bloggers were right—Apple's latest high-tech plaything is a touch-screen, WiFi-enabled iPod. Steve Jobs unveiled the new toy in San Francisco today, along with an iPod Nano that plays video (and Sudoku!) and a feature for making ringtones out of songs on iTunes. And taking a page from Coke's playbook, original iPods become "Classic," the Mercury News reports.
Jobs made the announcements with his characteristic panache and trademark turtleneck. “This boggles the mind,” he said at one point. After weeks of anticipation, the most exciting innovation may be the ability to download songs wirelessly. And early iPhone adopters may be kicking themselves—the 8GB model now costs $399, $200 less than when it was introduced.
