Apple's music event
Here's a brief rundown of what Apple announced at Wednesday's press event.
Free update for iPhone, iPod Touch will be available next week
To come in November.
A major refresh of iPod lineup, including the Shuffle, Nano, and Touch
New iTunes 10 with social-networking music features
New, smaller cloud-based Apple TV
For more details on these announcements,.
On Monday I asked you toduring Apple's special event today. Nearly 30 percent of you chose "an updated iPod Touch"--and .
Others beat the drum (and clicked the mouse) forand --both of which Apple also announced. In fact, the rumor mill got just about everything right; the only poll item that didn't become reality was a smaller iPad.
All this begs the question: which of today's announcements did you like best? Are you excited by the new Apple TV? The camera-equipped iPod Touch? iTunes 10 and Ping?
Now, I have no doubt many of you will choose "none of them." Haters! Seriously, though, at the risk of sounding like a fanboy, what exactly did you expect today if not some merely evolutionary product improvements? I think Apple served up a wide variety of interesting and worthwhile updates. (OK, I do have one major complaint: the low-res rear camera on the new Touch. Apple, you could have owned the camera market! That sub-megapixel sensor is just cruel!)
Anyway, vote in our poll, then head to the comments to talk up what Apple got right today--and what it got wrong.
