iPod Shuffle, Nano, and Apple TV Updated


The new iPod Shuffle has 2GB of storage, a 15 hour battery life, and is available for $49.99 in five colors: silver, blue, green, orange, and pink. It has the same five-button control scheme used on previous generations of the Shuffle, and can also be controlled via VoiceOver. Other that that, nothing new.


The updated Nano is pretty interesting. It uses a small 1.54 inch multitouch display that runs what looks to be a miniature version of iOS. Like its full sized brothers, it can be controlled with swiping gestures and VoiceOver. It is available in seven colors: silver, gray, blue, green, orange, pink, and (RED) red. It has a built in clip and a 15 hour battery life.

Apple TV

Apple has made some pretty big changes to the Apple TV, and has completely removed the need for an attached storage device. Here’s what is included in the incredibly small $99 unit:

  • HD movie and TV show rentals
  • Netflix and YouTube streaming
  • iTunes music and photos from your computer
  • 802.11n Wi-Fi
  • Apple Remote

It uses HDMI, and supports videos with a resolution up to 720p. You can stream media from your iOS device to the Apple TV, which is pretty neat too. Movie rentals are $4.99 day-of-release, and get cheaper as time goes by. TV rentals are $.99. Both are viewable for 48 hours after purchase.
