Flash Video iPod and iTunes 9

On September 9, 2009 Steve Jobs returned to the stage to discuss Apple’s new music products for the upcoming holiday season. Jobs, in case you hadn’t heard, had returned to Apple after a liver transplant done while he took a six month medical leave. He made the point of thanking his organ donor.

The highlights of the products introduced were an iPod Classic with a 160 GB hard drive and a new iPod Touch model with a faster processor and either a 32 GB or 64 GB Solid State Drive. To compete in the “flash video” cameras, Apple has added a video camera to the iPod Nano. As well as being an “insanely great” portable music player the addition of a video camera means that users can capture events and upload to social media sites like Youtube and Flicker.

On the software side, Apple introduced a revamped iTunes 9 with movie and music accompanied with “album art” and other interactive content previously part of the “vinyl LP” paradigm but missing in the digital music age. Additionally iPhone users can manage there iPhone Apps within iTunes.
