So it's most likely a chipset that stereo manufactures will be able to integrate into their systems so look to see what the Cupertino kids. I have to say about it. Not go to -- also chimes in with the report from their sources. Where they believe the next gen iPod nano may come with Wi-Fi capabilities to enable iTunes in the cloud support. They're also reporting that the new seven point 85 inch iPad will be officially called the iPad mini and not the mini me like we guessed here.
