New iPod lineup

Apple today announced the introduction of a new iPod, iPod nano and iPod shuffle as well as the latest version of the world's most popular music jukebox and online music and video store, iTunes 7.

The most significant changes are to the new iPod shuffle, which is a complete redesign of the original unit. The new shuffle is now the world's smallest digital music player, weighing just 14g and featuring a built-in pocket clip. The shuffle now only comes in a 1GB capacity (holding up to 240 songs) and features up to 12 hours of battery life.

Also introduced was the new range of iPod nanos, featuring all-new coloured aluminum designs. The new nano looks similar to the previous iPod mini, albeit much smaller. Apple claims it has up to 24 hours of battery life and a 40% brighter screen than its predecessor. There are 2GB, 4GB and 8GB models available in silver, pink, green, blue and black.

Apple has also slightly upgraded the 5G video iPod, featuring a 60% brighter screen for video playback and full colour games such as Tetris and Mini Golf. The new iPod is available in either 30GB or 80GB capacities.

In addition to the hardware, Apple released the latest version of iTunes, version 7. The new software features album and cover flow views, the ability to download games for playback on your iPod as well as an all new integration with the iPod.

We got an exclusive look at the new products, including iTunes 7, at an Apple media briefing this morning and we were very impressed, particularly with the miniscule shuffle, which will surely turn some heads.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
