No, not the iPod that plays video. It’s this:
Apple has finally signalled that they are serious about creating a home media center. It’s the new Apple Remote for FrontRow, that is not only included with the new iMac, but also works with the new Universal dock for iPods. Suddenly, all that media we’ve all been storing on our Macs are easily available, with butt firmly planted on couch, with the click of a button. No special OS, and it works with all the familiar i-Apps. Bravo!
The other big announcement was the availability of TV shows, the day after they were broadcast, to be downloaded at $1.99 a pop. Now you can catch up on shows you missed while you take public transportation to work. The specs say that the video size is 320×240, but I don’t know if it upscales when you use the video-out function on the iPod, or when you watch it on a computer.
The new iPods are nice, too, by the way… but I have iPod lust fatigue after the nano.
