Not to mention, why would I want to watch a movie with the controls superimposed over the picture?
Actually there have been a rash of these type of pictures. I have to admit this is the best one I have seen.
Getting closer to that, look here:SugarMedia said:Supposedly the next generation iPOD will have a touch screen, so I wouldn't necessarily write it off as some handy studio work.
Let's wait and see though... word has it that Jobs won't release it until he seals some deals on movie licenses.
Well, the current video/photo iPod starts at $299. With the larger screen and/or touchpad alleged for the new one as per the mockup above, I would bet on something starting around $399. Apple is in a hard spot here because fairly large-screen portable DVD players can be had for around $150 retail. Style and convenience will let Apple charge a premium, but there is a pain threshold in there somewhere.MiTT said:Just when I was thinking about going to the dark side and getting an i-pod this comes along (sigh). Guess I'll wait a while longer and get the latest toy instead. Any guesses what a trinket like this might set one back?
Tom, it's far different in Europe than in the US. Text Messaging is so common over here, I couldn't believe it when I arrived. In addition, I've found it is sometimes nice to send a message w/o making a call. Less intrusive. (Also the pay plans are opposite of what they are in the US. It's expensive to call, whereas Verizon offers Continental unlimited for X dollars. Not the case here.)TomDac said:doesn't matter to me if it's real or fake... Would I ever want to watch something on a screen that small? My answer is NO. To me this is like text messaging on your cell phone - what's the point? You have a cell phone.. call the person!! HELLO?!?!?
I agree with you but in discussions with my 22 year old, I understand her point for text messaging. She sends messages when in class or at work since sending and/or getting them is not intrusive or disruptive to her enviroment. Makes sense from that standpoint but being the Dad that I am, I think the phone should be off during those times as she doesn't need to be sending text messages while in class or while at work. I never did while in college or while a young worker just starting out.TomDac said:doesn't matter to me if it's real or fake... Would I ever want to watch something on a screen that small?

Well, so that's not so bad. That's about equivilent to the current 60G versions I think.SugarMedia said:I aso agree with SteveInNC that they will be priced in the 399.00 range.
Not just one website... And not just iPods... Any new Apple products actually.amey01 said:I think there is even a website dedicated to people's "doctored" images of fantasy iPods..........
